Nintendo 3DS in Japan is just around the corner and with Nintendo’s target of shipping four million of 3DS units this fiscal year , only a several hundred thousands of units will be available on launch day.
Thats just simply too many...
The title is wrong.
I saw the title and saw the 400,000 and said "Wow... So much for picking myself up a 3DS in the first couple months..." I then proceeded to the article and saw 4,000,000 and said "Oh lucky me, my changed of getting a 3DS on launch just went up from 1% to 10%."
one of those 3ds belongs to me, i just need to pay for it and pick it up.
That's too little considering the hype. It would be sold out every week like the wii .
Thats just the way they like it. Create even greater demand by producing less product. It's a great strategy that Nintendo seems to have perfected. Props to them for being such good salesmen.
That strategy sucks cause then a lot of people capitalize on that and end up buying like 20 of them somehow, only to put them on ebay for like 1,000+ dollars.
You were actually able to get a Wii during launch easily but the months after launch it was hard to get once people knew how high in demand the Wiis were.
I'm pre-oredering the 3DS in North America once it's available. I'm sure its going to be rare again
I guess we will have to wait and see if that number is too high or too low for the demand.
That's not nearly enough. I doubt Nintendo will only make that many. They should have at least triple that amount.
... I think I should preorder mine.
Another article here on n4g said 4 millions hipped worldwide at launch. 4 millions is still too small. The thing will end up hard to find like a wii. Also no offense, but the game coming out at the 3DS launch looks like crap in japan, I hope we don't get the same line-up, but it's very doubtful. So I am just gonna wait.
I doubt that's true, even 4 million at launch won't be enough.
lets see how this plays out
I just want to know the price. Hard to buy something when you dont know the price.
I should pick up a few 3DS's and sell them on craigslist. I can make some extra money that way.
craigslist,ebay etc etc ill buy a few sell them for profit use the profit money to buy all the great games in 2011....
I don't think this is fair for those who wait in line only to get beat to the punch by people like you who only buy them to sell them to some suckers at crazy inflated prices.
Launch shipment is 400k in Japan,after that other shipments will arrive(probably by weekly basis).
