    means nothing, justa sale like all systems get

    • gimmegimmekevin

      You’re probably right. If I didn’t own a Wii U already I would jump on this sale in a heartbeat.

        ps3, 360, 3ds have had constant cosco discounts since basically the first quarter and on too

        • gimmegimmekevin

          Yea, I believe the 3DS XL is $169 at Best Buy right now.

            and nobody would argue the 3ds is doing shitty

          • gimmegimmekevin

            It seems like its doing okay in America. Not ideal but its keeping up with the DS for now. In Japan its selling like hotcakes of course. Thanks for reading Stealth!

            30 million in 2 2 fiscal years is unheard of

          • gimmegimmekevin

            I’m pretty sure the DS sold 30 million in two fiscal years, I don’t think it was in the first two years though. The 3DS is doing pretty well

          • http://twitter.com/RPGFan2k Stealth

            it didnt

            I think I could be wrong, but Nintendo said they had sold 50 million DS systems in Sept. 2007

            http://www.techradar.com/news/gaming/handhelds/nintendo-ds-shoots-past-50-million-mark-161515

            And then in Oct. 2009 they said they had sold 113 million DS systems.

            http://www.destructoid.com/ds-sells-113-million-units-worldwide-153497.phtml

            Sounds like they sold a lot more than 30 million units in 2 years.

            I think what I misunderstood is that you said ‘fiscal year’ and I totally gaffed on that one. My bad. I was saying that I believed the DS had sold more than 30 million in a two year period, but you’re probably right that they didn’t sell 30 million over the course two fiscal years. (Like March 09 til March 2011)

            50 million is around 3 fiscal years
            They are at 30 in less than 2;.

          • gimmegimmekevin

            You’re right. I was misinterpreting what you said. Sorry, long day.

          • http://twitter.com/RPGFan2k Stealth

            no issues. I just think people, not you, have this idea that if its not first place or breaking records, its a flop. Which is why all systems are called flops

          • gimmegimmekevin

            I agree 100%.

  • Charles Crowe

    Some people will take it as a bad sign? You mean just like you implied in the headline? It’s common place and this is a well known fact yet you are trying to present it as a bad thing.
    Yeah some people will take it as the bad sign you are trying to imply it is.

    • Charles Crowe

      Even the people on N4G a big Nintendo hating site are laughing at you and your attempt here. It’s bad when the people that normally look for any reason to hate Nintendo are laughing at you

      • gimmegimmekevin

        Well, I do give my opinion on why this isn’t a bad sign in the post and the N4G comments don’t seem to be too harsh. People can take it however they want and I’m simply asking the question of whether people think it is bad/good. I’m allowed to ask that question on the website I run, and I gave my opinion on why it isn’t a bad sign.

        I appreciate you taking the time to read the post Charles, thanks!
