First 3DS sales were great, then not so much, and now things seem to be evening out somewhere around “normal.” According to numbers released by Nintendo, the fledgling handheld is poised to break the original DS’ first year sales numbers — closing out its 8th month with 1.65 million units sold, or roughly 69 percent of its predecessor’s 2.37 million first year sales. Noting that half of the old DS’ year one sales were made during the holiday season, Nintendo is confident the 3DS will surpass its predecessor’s numbers before hitting the one year mark. We’ll let you make your own predictions — Nintendo’s press release is after the break, if you want to compare notes.
