Over at Amazon.co.uk the Nintendo 3DS has broken all previous pre-order records. It’s the number 1 most pre-ordered system of all time. Before the 3DS was the PS3, the Wii, Kinect, and Playstation Move. It just goes to show you the price tag on this little powerhouse isn’t stopping it one bit.
“It’s unusual for a handheld console to attract this amount of excitement in the run up to launch, such high levels of interest are normally reserved for the play-at-home hardware like the ground-breaking Nintendo Wii and last year’s Microsoft Kinect ,” said Chris Poad, Director of Video Games at Amazon.co.uk Ltd. “Nintendo 3DS is launching at a time when interest in all things 3D is incredibly high and with the promise of real 3D graphics without glasses, it’s a real breakthrough in handheld video game entertainment.”
