It's not anywhere near failing, but I'd assume Nintendo wishes it was doning better. 120k-200k a month isn't spectacular, but with handhelds now competing with smart phones it was to be expected.

19 mil july of 2012Sony would kill an entire orphanage full of defenseless children for vita sales like that
Explain why the 3ds is getting it's second price cut
Which is pretty sad considering it's been out for less then 2 years, that shows how much of a flop it is.
Vita is dead, but the 3ds is lagging way behind in the west, japan is the reason why it's selling so good these days.http://www.nintendo.co.jp/ir/en/sales/hard_soft/index.html
22 million 3DS's.
~8 million in Japan if we look at Media Create.
Which means ~14 million in the west.

ohh god not you. Its people like you that make others think pokemon is for mentally challenged children, This.
3DS might be doing great numbers in japan but it's a different story in the west.
Getting thumped 2/1 from the PS3 and 3/1 from the 360 "on black friday" proves how much of a failure the 3DS currently is.
Nintendo has released basically every mario game known to man on that system and it did jack shet meaning there is only 1 game left.
pokemon is not only bigger then mario in the west, but it's actually the only ip nintendo has left that stands a chance in this smartphone dominated market.
