Nintendo 3DS Makes Record Sales In US
Nintendo 3DS is claimed to have been sold in the highest numbers when compared to any other Nintendo's handheld devices, the company said.
“US day-one sales numbers for Nintendo 3DS were the highest of any Nintendo handheld system in our history,” the company was quoted as saying.
Since its launch, some flaws in the device are being reported. And Nintendo’s sales record claim comes amidst this. The company has not revealed the sales figures though. However, an independent study, which could come on April 14, is awaited to know the number of units sold.
The Nintendo 3DS gaming console was launched in March 25. With few hours after the launch, the device was suffering from black screen of death that reportedly stalled the functioning of the device. It, further, prompts the users to switch off and switch it on again for normal functioning. The issue, soon became widely known and left the initial buyers frustrated.
The Nintendo 3DS gaming console equips a 3.53 inches display screen and has 3.02-inch touchpanel bottom screen. The device has 2.4GHz 802.11, Wi-Fi connectivity and the PICA200 GPU for superior game performance. This is also the first gaming console that does not require 3D glasses to get the three dimensional feel.
