The 3DS rush is on the come down following the August 12 price cut, with the console having sold 196,077 units two weeks ago, and 105,639 units last week. However, it still nearly outsold both the PSP and the PlayStation 3 combined, according to data from tracking firm Media Create, and as reported by NeoGAF.

Elsewhere, Nintendo saw sales of its Wii console drop 7,000 units to 11,342, while its DS handheld also saw a drop in sales to 5,729 units. Both the DS Lite and the PSP Go held on for dear life at the bottom of the charts, with 110 units and 20 units sold respectively.
