With the 3DS kicking all sorts of ass currently, it ended up as the highest selling game system in the UK in 2013, beating out Xbox 360, Xbox One, and yes, PS4.

Go on, Nintendo. Continue kicking ass.

Yet they couldn't even release a good Zelda game on it.

That's impressive considering that the UK is usually Nintendo's weakest region

Pretty surprising.

@Shinobishyguy: That's curious. I thought Nintendo favored the UK over the States?

Have to admit, I was pleasantly surprised when I purchased mine. I thought it would be meh, but it really has been a blast. It's an underrated console for sure. Come to think of it, both handhelds are..

that's pretty impressive, although 2014 is looking dead for the 3DS

I wonder how bad things would be for the Nintendo if they didn't have handhelds.

Eh, no. Bravely Default, Professor Layton, Layton vs Wright, Kirby, Yoshi, Super Smash Bros, Persona Q, Monster Hunter 4, Theatrhythm Curtain Call...

It's not 2013 level, but then nothing will be. I also expect Nintendo will announce more stuff soon.

None of those games are system sellers, well smash bros is, but most people will get the wii u version

Smash alone could make it better than its highly overrated 2013.

I don't remember adding the bolded, italicized, capitalization, but it does get the point across even better, agreed.

@inb4uall: the response to what Sweenix said that you have in your sig makes me cry, just FYI.
