3DS Exceeds 22 Million Lifetime Sales, Surpasses GameCube

After Nintendo's strong performance during Black Friday, the 3DS lifetimes sales shot over the 22 million mark. Not only does this mean the device is succeeding much more than originally thought, but it has surpassed the lifetime sales of the GameCube, a console that sold 21.74 million units over a six-year cycle.

The 3DS has 10 million more to go until it can pass the Nintendo 64, and a whopping 27 million until it can say the same to the SNES.
