3DS hype seems to be dying

Sony is still king in the Land and of the Rising Sun
While Nintendo's 3DS was the talk of the town a few weeks ago, it appears that interest in the console is giving way. Media Create has looked at a few sales results that show that despite Nintendo gearing being hyped to the stars, Sony are dominating the software sales.

Half of the top twenty selling titles for the week were on Sony's platforms, and ten were on Nintendo's. However eight of Sony's titles were in the top ten.

Games for the Nintendo 3DS are not a major feature. There is  Professor Layton and the Miracle Mask and... er... that's it. While Samurai Warriors Chronicle is doing OK, the other launch games are not selling.

It is all starting to look doom laden for Nintendo, which was hoping to pick up sales that it is losing now that its Wii is getting so old it that its 1980's Amiga style graphics are starting to show their age.
