So the 3DS has a price drop, sales increase in Japan by 5000 per cent

207,000 more consoles entered circulation; a figure that tops the number of handhelds sold during the week following launch earlier this year. Impressive, since Nintendo only managed 700,000 units worldwide in the previous three months.

Looks like the 3DS is finally off and flying after the stuttering start. Nintendo must be pleased with this.
