In an update to a previous article, Nintendo of America President Reggie Fils-Aime recently announced that the Nintendo 3DS has managed to surpass the first-year sales of its predecessor only 8-months into its lifespan. Some attribute this to the release of a new Mario title on the platform, some claim that the holiday specials and bundles are to credit and yet some still attribute the $169.99 price cut to the success. This is all playing to Nintendo's success, but some still question whether certain titles could or even should be developed for 3DS.
First person shooters are a hot market right now, with some titles obviously taking their king's share of the revenue. However, one title recently gained the attention of journalists in a different way. Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3: Defiance, developed by n-Space for the Nintendo DS and serving as a companion narrative to the console versions, certainly has its share of fans. However, review sites gave it scores comparably low to its big brother (in most cases), and the journalistic approaches used to review the title were brought into question by n-Space itself on its blog.

At roughly midnight EST, Nintendo shared a Tweet with its followers that the Nintendo 3DS was being promoted in a Music Video by Justin Bieber.1 The video in question is Mariah Carey's All I Want for Christmas Is You, in which she also duets with him. The song is part of Bieber's new holiday album Under the Mistletoe. Despite promoting togetherness as being the most important aspect of the holiday season, the video features excited shoppers waiting to redeem their tickets into Macy's midnight opening while those inside excitedly roam around the aisles gleefully filling their carts with various products. At one point, Bieber notices a display of 3DS units and runs over, where he is greeted by shoppers who show off their own units to him. He then excitedly places one in his cart and grabs another before the scene changes to something else.

While some may question Nintendo's decision to make such a major marketing ploy this season, during which the 3DS will be almost unchallenged in handheld sales worldwide, major music productions by major artists filmed in major department stores seem like a never-miss way to show the world you mean business.
Well I guess it's not that bad, Mario Land 3D came out and that's been giving the hand held some much needed hands-on for many people. If you don't have it and want to know if it's something your parents are getting you for X-mas, just tell them you saved up all your allowance and are going to go buy it today! Kids, remember lying is one trick that never gets old
In a press release straight from Nintendo, the company reports that the Nintendo 3DS may indeed surpass the original DS's first year performance. After its recent efforts to improve sales and mend customer frustration, Nintendo reports that in its eighth month on the market the 3DS has surpassed 1.65 million units sold.1 Currently, the Nintendo DS is lauded as the best selling handheld worldwide and the second best selling platform overall, only surpassed by Sony's Playstation 2.2
Originally posted by press.nintendo.com:
The Nintendo DS system sold 2.37 million units in its first 12 months (November 2004-October 2005), with approximately 50 percent of those sales occurring in the holiday time frame. With its first holiday season and the launches of the Super Mario 3D Land™ and Mario Kart™ 7 games on the horizon, Nintendo 3DS is poised to eclipse that number and establish a new benchmark for hand-held gaming launches in the United States.
With many highly anticipated titles on the horizon worldwide, and more titles to come next year, Nintendo's looking nowhere but up as it charges ahead at full speed into the holiday season.
