I think that some people are little too concerned with 3DS sales. They're fine.

Based on Media Create data, the 3DS is down about 45% (or about 326k units) YoY in Japan. However, the U.S. and Europe make up for it, though not enough to keep global sales being down YoY. In the U.S. it's up about 44,300 units for the first six weeks of the year, and in Europe it's up 100,600 units (note: to give it an equal week count, I'm counting the week ending Jan. 4 of this year as being in 2014, though VGC counts it as part of 2013; the week ending Jan. 5 last year was counted as 2013 instead of 2012). So, while the 3DS may have peaked in Japan, it might not have done so quite yet in America and Europe. This is congruent with how the DS performed regionally: it peaked in 2006 in Japan but didn't peak in Europe until 2008 and in the U.S. until 2009.
