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

4M units sold, day 1. Can't wait till this is available to pre-order (EU).

Lucreto3848d ago

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

gumgum993848d ago

Let's be honest here...2.5 million units for the US just isn't enough.

Lf_sIcKmAn3848d ago

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
