Software-wise, the Nintendo 3DS is the one platform that saw the biggest increase in sales, with +31.4%. Unfortunately, Nintendo’s handheld is still far behind the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One, it’s just that January sales were really poor for the Nintendo 3DS in January 2016. As for the Wii U, it’s further sliding into irrelevance…
