3DS Was UK's Biggest-Selling Console Last Week

Posted by James Newton

Nearly 70,000 sold

Buoyed by the releases of Super Mario 3D Land and Mario Kart 7, 3DS was the biggest-selling console in the United Kingdom last week.

Nearly 70,000 units of the console were sold around the UK in the last week, MCV reports. By comparison, the 3DS racked up 113,000 sales at launch, so 70,000 in a week is a pretty healthy number.

With some stores reporting scarce 3DS stocks the machine could have a very good Christmas ahead.

Another sales figure, another reminder of tasteless fanboys crying gloom and doom. They only energized Nintendo and the 3DS more. The 3DS is going to be a beast in the marketplace. Keep up the good work!

Naturally, consoles bought this Christmas will mostly consist of 3DSs, because children already have their 360s, PS3s, Wiis and the like.
