Price cut sees the 3DS install itself at the top of the Japanese charts

3DS dominating Japan

It seems that Nintendo's drastic price cut for the 3DS has paid off in spades in Japan at least.

Slashing the price of the 3DS has been managed to become a fixture at the top of the charts since the price cut came into effect at the end of the summer.

Nintendo's 3D handheld has managed to see off the PSP with more than double the sales last week and five times the sales this week.

This will come as a relief to Nintendo who has seen their share price plummet due to the poor launch performance of the 3DS combined with dwindling sales of the Wii.

Thanks Gamasutra.
