Newsbrief: Nintendo’s 3DS console family has now surpassed 60 million in worldwide sales, according to a company statement released in a new NPD report picked up by IGN.

At the end of March 3DS sales stood at 58.85 million, meaning another 1.15 million consoles have been sold in just over two months.
