Reggie Fils-Aime has revealed that last week, amidst the launch of the Wii U, the Nintendo DS managed to outsell the 3DS in North America, selling 275,000 units compared to 250,000 units of the 3DS. This isn’t the best of trends if it continues, but Reggie says the “significant deals” during Black Friday explain how the DS was able to come out on top, which makes a lot of sense, so we shouldn’t see it happen again.
