3DS: Preventing Another Virtual Boy

Chris Buffa (Modojo): It was supposed to be easy.

At least that's how Nintendo must have felt the eve of the March 27 3DS launch, and why not? In seven years, the publisher sold over 149 million DS systems. With that kind of support, fans should have lined up by the thousands to buy this new system. It was as close to a hardware guarantee as a company could make. Millions sold? Try sold out. (3DS, Mario Kart 7, Monster Hunter 3G, Monster Hunter 4, Star Fox 64 3D, Super Mario 3D Land)
