XBS is holding just above 100k, that has to count for something.

I mean the XBX|S is performing solidly. It's just a matter of the other platforms doing even better.

Not sure what it's averaging, but always seems to be in the 200-250k range. So that seems about right.

Nintendo ended all production on the 3DS/2DS systems in September 2020. Weekly sales this week are below 1000 worldwide. Keep in mind that VGChartz only tracks new consoles being sold, not preowned/secondhand sales at GameStop or eBay and whatnot. All that being said: how long does 3DS have on the weekly charts before stock is completely gone???

We will stop tracking the 3DS outside of Japan at the end of June. With Japan Famitsu is still posting 3DS sales.

Thanks for the reply!!! End of an era for the 3DS/dedicated handheld systems; but I truly believe Nintendo going with the handheld-console combo in Switch was one of their best business moves ever.
