Information released as part of Nintendo’s recent investors conference suggest that the 3DS is enjoying a comfortable on-going sales advantage over PlayStation Vita.
Weekly sales of the 3DS in Europe are hovering around the 40,000-50,000 mark and are generally tracking ahead of both the console’s 2011 sales trends and those enjoyed by the DS over the last two years.
However, following its debut earlier this year Vita sales appeared to have settled around the 10,000-20,000 units per week mark across the continent.
“Nintendo 3DS had the biggest market share even before the launch of the Nintendo 3DS XL system, but it was far from satisfactory in terms of sales,” Nintendo boss Iwata told investors.
“However, after week 30, which corresponds to the launch of the Nintendo 3DS XL system, sales grew considerably, and the sales boost from this launch was greater than that of the markdown in the previous year’s summer. As a result, Nintendo 3DS led the European video game market in August.
