Nintendo has announced that the platform holder has sold more than 11.5 million units of the Nintendo 3DS, 3DS XL and 2DS –– the “3DS family” –– in the United States alone, according to a report from GameSpot today.

Also touting a record number of 3DS games being sold in 2013, Nintendo says they pushed out a combined 16 million physical and digital 3DS games for an increase of 45 percent compared to 2012 figures.

“Nintendo 3DS is a powerhouse with games and experiences that appeal to all kinds of players,” said Nintendo of America marketing executive Scott Moffitt, adding that the “best days” of the console are ahead in 2014.

The stats come as both Microsoft and Sony revealed sales figures from the next-gen consoles Xbox One and PlayStation 4 this week at CES 2014.

Microsoft announced early this week that the company had pushed out 3 million units of the Xbox One from the time it launched in mid-November until the end of 2013. You can read that full Examiner report by clicking here.
