3DS Breaks Enterbrain Monthly Sales Record, Vita Second In Same Month

Sony PS Vita Nintendo News 3DS

Nintendo has reason to celebrate a successful December as its 3DS handheld system has broken the Enterbrain sales monthly record since the start of tracking sales, which began all the way in 1997. The handheld has sold a whooping 1,492,931 units, no thanks to the release of two Mario titles and Monster Hunter 3G, which are immensely popular at the moment. Both Mario games (Super Mario 3D Land and Mario Kart 7) have sold over one million copies each in its lifetime, a great accomplishment.

Strangely enough, the Playstation Vita is in fact the second best selling hardware in December, despite only being available since December 17 and pulling in what people call abysmal sales figures (even proclaiming its doom after only three weeks on the market). It has sold 402,794 units in the December period. The Enterbrain tracking for December runs from November 28 through to December 25 and the figures usually differ to the Media Create figures. Looking at that figure, it is quite impressive, seeing that it was only on the market for eight of those days in the tracking period.

Josh is the name, writing is my game... well my degree will say that. But, when uni gets me down (and it does), there is no better way that to grab a chair, sit back and slicing up some Darkspawn I started my gaming interest back in the good old 16 bit era with the Sega Mega Drive and Sonic The Hedgehog 2. I was roughly five years old. To this day I still try to fire up the dusty companion and speed through the wacky and bright levels, jumping on some Badniks, collecting those damn Chaos Emeralds. Then I moved onto Sony's disk based console the Playstation (thanks to my uncle). Since then I have picked up each of Sony's consoles from the 5th to current generation that has been released in Australia (with more to come). In terms of writing about games, I am quite new to the field. I started out late last year with my own blog before deciding to move to greener pastures. I have written a few reviews for the Playstation 3 and Playstation Portable. Features as well. I hope I can flex my muscles while writing with Capsule Computers. If I'm not gaming, however, I'm writing narratives. I am currently trying to kickstart a high fantasy novel (which, hopefully, turns into a complex RPG) that I want done in five years or so. My passion of writing has been there for a long time and has flourished as I grew. I'm into the fantasy genre, both games and novels, and thoroughly enjoy a deep and complex RPG, whether it comes from the East or West. Oh and anime is awesome!
