Crazy that even with the Vita starting to sell more and more it still lost 7% market share to the 3ds just because everyone seems to need to own a 3ds atm.

3DS only 3% down year on year, not bad. I know the 3DS XL launch in August 2012 boosted sales like mad, but Pokemon/Monster Hunter 4 should have a similar impact. I wonder if 3DS will grow in the end, it will be close.
