Also included in the data is the fact that the Nintendo 3DS outsold the Xbox 360, making it the top selling platform across hardware and portables. Software sales for the 3DS were up 60 percent year-over-year.

 

Despite poor sales, Nintendo has said that it has no plans to drop the price of the Wii U.
