Now this my kind of Numberwang. Gamecube being surpassed means both of Nintendo's "failure" consoles have been passed. Since Nintendo is publishing DQ Builders 2 in the west, I hope they bring it out sooner rather than later!

Will 3DS be able to surpass PSP's 76.3 million? Might just be feasible, still, right? Although some estimates put PSP at 82 million, don't think they'll be able to catch that (or even their own GBA, which sits at 81.5 million combined).

I still don't know who bought half of those PSPs. Does every household in Japan have two or three?

They expected 4m 3DSs to ship this fiscal year, and if they hit that they'd be at 76.7m IIRC.
