GameStop on Thursday said it captured big Nintendo 3DS market share immediately after the handheld device's launch, but in the current quarter the retailer expects sales to "fall slightly short of what we expected."
Of course it's not selling well. The e-store still hasn't launched, and most of the games worth buying are still not released.
