    Well knowing Nintendo, they might even make the 5 million count.

    That's not a good thing. I don't want a new passport, and I don't want to apply for a Visa to go on holiday for more than a month.

    I can easily see them making it to 5 million by the end of the fiscal year, assuming they release it before thanksgiving (USA)... I can see it now, $20 off on the 3DS at most every store on Black Friday (For those of you who don't know, Black Friday)

    They'll sell quite a few if they do that [​IMG]

    Since when? Most of the UK's trade is with Europe so economically that'd be a disaster and I can't see that happening.

    As for November I'd say that it's a good chance it will be around then if Nintendo want to sell 5 million. It would give them a good 5 months or so to do it in.

    More like having nightmares, they'll sell way more than that (that is, if they release it a couple of months before the end of the fiscal year of course).

    ^I seriously hope you're kidding, the design looks horrible (well, in my opinion at least).

    He/she knew that, but was just saying he/she didn't like the way it was designed.

    The way it was written made it seem as though He/She thought it was the official design.

    Actually, he/she... I mean me, knew that this wasn't the real design, but was responding to the comment above me, who said that the fake design looks good, while it looks just horrible (again, in my opinion).

    That's what I meant, actually. It seems this thread has created quite a lot of confusion [​IMG]

    Better title would be: 'Nintendo fears to sell 5 million 3DS this fiscal year'.
    They won't sell less than 5 million.

    I am hoping that to meet this expectation, Nintendo will plan a worldwide release of this new handheld, hopefully before Christmas. I will be keeping my fingers crossed. [​IMG]

    Agree'd


    But yeah, there has been a lot of talk on the "3DS" so you never know, It could either make or break Nintendo.
