Unfortunately they are not available yet, but in Japan where they were released the Nintendo 3DS sold nearly all of it’s initial release of 400,000 hand held devices. This is a staggering number for a hand held devices sold on it’s first day is indeed impressive, but what was even more impressive is that it was pretty much sold out by pre-order so the lines were not ridiculously long. I think this is a great showing for Nintendo’s latest handheld device, but it is still just unfortunate that we will not be able to get our hands on one of these until next month. All in all it was a good sales day for Nintendo and we will need to see just how many will be needed in the second shipment of these devices before the masses are satisfied.
