After a slow start for its 3D gaming handheld, Nintendo has started to pick up some momentum with the 3DS. Much of the boost can be attributed to new game titles being released for the device.
It now reportedly has sold 6 million units in Japan, according to Famitsu. Japanese gamers appear to be embracing the 3DS after a slow start in Nintnedo's home market, while they appear cold to the PlayStation Vita so far.
In the UK, Nintendo is expected to pass 1 million units for the 3DS very soon also. Total worldwide sales for the device are around 18 million.
