I wonder why they don't want to provide an exact number...
maybe they are ashamed of the sales hmm?
I don't think they would lie about it.
Forgive me for saying this but that's probably the dumbest thing I've ever heard.
They wouldn't brag about the sales if they were low. And they're not releasing full numbers until NPD day, which is common practice.
Also this part: "1st day sales highest of any hand-held in Nintendo history" is quite an achievement if you know your history.
Well, the 3DS is a good handheld. It deserves to sell well.
wow everyday i want to get the 3ds more and more
hopefully in the future ill be a proud owner of one
Maybe they're not sure of the exact number. While a difference of a few thousand may not matter when you're already over the record by far more than that, it does matter for proper record-keeping.
What was that about low initial demand?
Cool, I thought the handheld was doing good, no doubt.
more than llikely just that nintendo were prepared enough to provide ample stock to stores instead of just enough to fill pre-orders
I'm glad to see that Nintendo prepared for the onslaught of first-day buyers. I would have hated to see another Wii incident...
They're holding it back to build hype.
Well, they seemed to have done a good job at keeping the stocks of the 3DS up, because I still see a whole bunch of 3DS boxes lying around for people to take at my local Best Buy, Future Shop, and everywhere else. Maybe Canada isn't as interested in the 3DS as the U.S.?
Better than the DS or any predecessor for sure, but I don't think it was as high as the Wii's or they would have said best selling Nintendo console of all time.
i cant say it doesnt deserve it. the fans proved tht they wanted it at E3 and the DS has put the rep of 3ds that high
I'm happy I contributed :3
Well now that I've been playing my 3DS for a while, I wish all games were 3D. I also wish for a lot more AR Games.
This has been quite refreshing, though I now want a 3DS XL.
An XL version of the 3DS would be nice. But we don't know how that might effect the 3D. I imagine you can only make a 3D screen so big before you need glasses for it.
As for the sales, I don't see why Nintendo wants to keep the stats hidden. I can understand for wanting to wait and see the numbers for week 1, but why wait all the way until the 14th to report numbers?
I must be in the minority that just sees it as a glorified DS with a new gimmick. I played a handful of the games and while the "cool" factor exists that they can do it w/o glasses, I'm not sold on the games themselves at all. I guess as more titles are released we shall see how it holds up.
been to a few places and they have sold very little 3ds
This isn't exactly true. The 3DS uses a parallax barrier method which simply limits what each eye can see. The downside to this is that there is a very limited "sweet spot". A larger screen wouldn't cause any problems for this though, and would most likely increase the sweet spot size as well.
However, my biggest problem with the DSi XL is the relative drop in resolution, since the larger screen retain the same resolution. I'd like to see larger screens IF they did something like the iPhone 4 with a Retina Display or something.
