3DS reaches 6.68 million units sold

As of the end of last month, 6.68 million 3DS consoles have been sold since its release.

That number is below Nintendo’s expectations, but is still more units sold in the same period than the DS.  After the large price cut the device received in August, Nintendo says that sales have been improving, and expects sales to continue to grow during the Christmas season.

3DS software sales are currently at 17.56 million units, a number Nintendo will also be looking to increase this holiday.
