It was expected that Nintendo 3DS sales were going to drop after the drastic announcement from Nintendo of a price cut but a huge 50% drop in sales is rather harsh.
According to a report from Gamasutra, this sets to be the first time the 3DS has drop below sales of the Wii and PS3 in Japanese shores. The drop has also surprisingly made an impact to other rival console with a small surge in PSP sales. The PSP soar from 26,868 units from July 11-17 to 36,666 units in the July 18-24 time period. Sales of the previous Nintendo DS seem to keep intact by the controversy. The older system of DS sold about 10,000 units both weeks. The only 3DS game to make the top 20 for the week was Ocarina of Time 3D.
However, you can keep yourselves in a peace of mind that once the price slash takes effect sales for the Nintendo 3DS will go through the roof. We just hope for that.
