Well the Nintendo 3DS system has now been available in the UK for a mere four days, but the launch title sales figures have already started rolling in and there are actually a few surprises to be found.
It's not often that we see a third-party offering manage to beat out Nintendo's first-party titles, but it seems gamers are flocking to Capcom's 3D rendition of their popular Street Fighter IV release Super Street Fighter IV 3D Edition. Of course you won't have to peruse too far down the list in order to find a Nintendo-published title with Pilotwings Resort popping up at the #2 spot. And in a bit of a surprise, Ubisoft's Rayman 3D title manages to debut all the way up in the third spot, showing strong sales for what is essentially a port of a 2000 Dreamcast game, although we enjoyed it.
