Unsurprisingly 3DS remained the clear pace setter on the hardware front, selling more than five times as many units as all rival systems combined. According to Media Create data published on NeoGAF, lifetime 3DS sales (12,752,731) have now surpassed those of Wii (12,698,878), but Nintendo's handheld remains some way behind Sony's elderly PSP (19,997,659), which is on the verge of hitting its own new milestone.
