Hey, we got hard numbers on how many Nintendo 3DS systems were sold so far. That would be 3.61 million units and I have yet to see one in the wild nor do any of my friends have one. 3.61 million is pretty good so far, but we'll see if it has any legs in it.

It's too bad though that compared to the previous year, their net profits are down 66%. Yikes! That's a big dip there. $825 million is a lot, but it's not a lot when compared to the previous year. And now you see why Nintendo is bully about releasing a brand new console for next year.
