CheatCC says - Launch has been consumed. We've played with the AR cards and gotten used to the new stylus. Believe it or not, the 3DS has been out in the United States for almost a month now.
As far as console launches go, 3DS' wasn't the most jaw-dropping. Lines to buy the new console were surprisingly small outside the most populous areas of the country. Yet in its modesty, the successor to the DS was able to make some pretty decent commercial gains. Nintendo, however, could have made things a little easier on themselves (and 3DS owners) on day one.
