Nintendo 3DS breaks Amazon pre-order record
Nintendo's upcoming 3DS blows pre-order sales of Wii and DSi out of the water.
The first 3D handheld, the Nintendo 3DS, has smashed Amazon pre-order records, Amazon revealed today. The 3DS, which goes on sale on March 25th along with the iPad 2, has pre-orders 56% higher than the Nintendo Wii and a whopping 255% higher than the Nintendo DSi.
"It's unusual for a handheld console to attract this amount of excitement in the run up to launch," says Chris Poad, Amazon's UK director of video games. "Such high levels of interest are normally reserved for the play-at-home hardware like the ground-breaking Nintendo Wii and last year’s Microsoft Kinect."
