Reggie Interview: Nintendo sold 400,000 3DS systems in first week

USAToday: "Nintendo launched its new handheld 3DS game system in the last week of March in a quiet fashion compared to that of its last system, the Wii.

Consumers bought just fewer than 400,000 Nintendo 3DS systems in the week after it was launched March 27, said Nintendo of America president Reggie Fils-Aime. "We are very satisfied with this start and we look forward to the momentum that we will build on Nintendo 3DS with the launch of the E-Shop, the launch of the 3-D trailers for Hollywood movies and the launch of The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time in mid-June, as well as the launch of Netflix later on in the summer."

440,000 units is a hell of a lot for just under a week. And this was in the face of two exclusive DS pokemon bundles. Nintendo's biggest competition is themselves.

He probably making up those numbers. With all of the bad press it has been getting. I doubt those numbers are true.

Nintendo should at least had an Triple A title with the launch line or something. It would of most likely sold more if it did.

But you better not look into it for too long, can give you a headache.

Well Nintendo always wins the handheld wars, no reason that should change now I guess.

Raider692927d ago (Edited 2927d ago )

Its not just in handhelds that Nintendo wins.They are a money print machine with a big publicity team backing them up!

I checked it out at gamestop and the graphics impressed me, much better than the psp but the 3d wasnt good honestly i couldnt really tell. Might have been the game because i could see the 3d in youtube demos so idk. Id rather have it without 3d and priced at 179.99 new.

Sitris2927d ago

It is impossible for you to see 3d in YouTube videos. Absolutely impossible.
