5M Nintendo 3DS consoles sold in Japan
February 20, 2012 | By Mike Rose

Newsbrief: The Nintendo 3DS is now the fastest-selling games console to reach 5 million hardware sales in Japan, taking exactly 52 weeks to do so.

According to data from tracking firm Media Create, and as translated by Andriasang, the latest Nintendo console reached this 5 million figure quicker than both the DS and the Game Boy Advance, which took 56 weeks and 58 weeks respectively.

It should be noted that this figure is actual sales from retailers to customers, rather than the number of consoles shipped to retailers.
