Even though the PS3 was launched back on November 11th, 2006 and the 3DS was released on February 26th, 2011, sales of the 3DS have already exceeded the PS3.

Currently the PS3 is sitting at 8,593,899 units sold while the 3DS has raced past it at 8,728,515 units in gamers’ hands. And with still some amazing AAA quality software to be released for the 3DS, it still has ways to go with sales.
