Nintendo 3DS Launch: Better Than We Thought

Chris Buffa (Modojo): According to many, Nintendo's March 27 3DS launch was a huge disappointment. The system was overpriced at $249.99, consumers complained the glasses free 3D gave them headaches and a lack of compelling software (the absence of Mario the biggest sticking point) gave shoppers little reason to fork over their hard-earned dough. (3DS, Mario Kart 7, Nintendogs + Cats, Pilotwings Resort, Ridge Racer 3D, Super Mario 3D Land, Super Street Fighter IV 3D Edition)

BETTER than we thought? No. No. There is no excuse for it. Heck, the system is still crawling uphill and it has a long way to go before it is a must-have system.

The launch week was OK...

In Japan, they'd sold out their entire allocation in the first two days. It was the most successful Nintendo console launch ever in America and the UK.

The problem was the three months after that. Those good first week sales didn't last.

They sold 4 million first quarter - but 3.5 million of that was in the first week.
