3DS breaks monthly sales record in Japan

Enterbrain reports highest selling single-month hardware sales ever

The 3DS managed to beat records for the most hardware units sold in a single month in Japan last month.


That's according to figures from Japanese sales tracking firm Enterbrain, which says that the 1,492,931 units sold between November 28 and December 25 is the highest hardware sales total for any single month since it began records in 1997.

December is also the seventh month running that 3DS has topped Enterbrain's Japanese monthly hardware charts.

Sony's Vita, which launched on December 17 in the region, came in a distant second for the month, with 402,794 units sold.

3DS was the best-selling console in Japan in 2011, while Mario Kart 7 beat Super Mario 3D Land to the top of the annual software sales chart. The 3D portable's fortunes have really turned around, it seems.
