Nintendo president Satoru Iwata revealed shipment numbers for the 3DS today, and it looks like Japan will be receiving most of the inventory.
A lot of the rest will go the US. I think.
4m from day one, look like it will set some records.
I might just try to get a hold of a bunch and sell 'em for 600$ each on ebay.
It is because of opportunists like you that this world is going right down the drain... Have you no conscience? would you abuse people for a buck? And dont give me that "people let themselves be abused" because it is still morally wrong... I have spoken...
I will lol so hard, if you get stuck with them. If I end up having to wait or put up with Ebay prices like yours, I'd take the wait.
It might not sell as fast as the hype suggest. It will depend on how soon the user base, which is mostly kids, feel the need to upgrade. I think most early buyers will be core gamers who want to experience handheld 3D. I am no patcher though, this is just my best guess.
It wasnt kids who massively bought ds and sudoku and dr kawashima . And it wont be kids mostly buying street fighter 4 on 3ds Keep telling yourselves that only kids care
I'm confused by all the disagrees. What I plan to do is perfectly legal hehe.
4M units sold, day 1. Can't wait till this is available to pre-order (EU).
If there is a zelda bundle I will buy it day 1. Other than that I will wait for more games.
hopefully it drops at $250. i cant picture nintendo saying $299 we'll find out soon i guess
Let's be honest here...2.5 million units for the US just isn't enough.
As much as the US is a big market... the DS sells like hotcakes in japan... the special editions in particular... they just gobble them... im beginning to believe they actually eat them O_O
It will probably sell out at launch
4 million units will sell out in less than a week, maybe a few days then the Kinect can kiss 3ds arse.
im going to get 2 or 3 with my tax refund check and sell them on ebay and if those sell ill turn around a nd get a few more to sell. Also I will at least make all my money back if no one is buying the 3ds but come on you got to be out of your mind if u think 4 million wont sell out in 1 day and any other shipments up to 6 million will be sold out as well.
Guys, you need to read properly, it's by the END OF MARCH. not LOAUNCH DAY. And considering any day in March could be 'The day', it might come out on the 1st March in the EU/US. Once agoain, those figures are END of March. @Raendom, not sure where you are, but can can walk in to GAME/Gamestation and drop £10's down for one, if thats possable for you.
