Just how is the 3ds still selling? With these 2 systems in the circulation Nintendo is dominating the handheld market. Even when the Wii U was a dud the 3DS continued to sell. Now I bet you people are going to hate how I’m bringing up 3DS sales into the fray.

N2DS is just cheap enough to hand to a child and not care much if it gets destroyed.

Nintendo was dominating the handheld market with the 3DS alone. Heck, Nintendo IS the handheld market.

If your "worst" still sells 72 million units, that's not quite so bad really.

3DS/2DS is at a sweet price point, more kid friendly hardware, cheaper software, massive backlog with many exclusives

There’s still a market for a budget handheld, and a lot of old systems tend to pull decent numbers once they’re discounted enough if they at least have a decent backlog.

By sale numbers the Game & Watch is Nintendo's worst handheld.

@TC, I have to ask: if Final Fantasy XIII actually one of your favorite games? Cuz if so, props. I didn't think anyone other than me liked it.
