TVGB: "We all know the Nintendo 3DS didn’t perform at launch. A mixture of poor release games and overall consumer dissatisfaction led to a slump in early sales. Where Nintendo predicted to sell 4 million units over the first week of launch, it failed miserably. I personally thought the 3DS was a very ingenious product with a lot of appeal. If anything, the fact that the console was a step in the right direction for the company in terms of powerful graphics, enhanced multiplayer capabilities should have sealed the deal. Topping it off with some sumptuous icing, third party developers were not expected to plunge the machine into a barrel of copious games that had ‘Imagine…’ in the title. No, the developers were taking it seriously and we were to see some great games on the horizon."
