Nintendo UK has today announced that, with three days to go until launch, pre-orders for the new glasses free 3D entertainment device, Nintendo 3DS, have more than doubled those achieved for Wii in 2006.
“The reaction to Nintendo 3DS has exceeded our wildest expectations,” said David Yarnton, General Manager of Nintendo UK. “Glasses-free 3D entertainment has truly arrived. It’s almost certain that the number of Nintendo 3DS consoles sold on Friday will exceed the number of 3D televisions sold in the whole of 2010.
“Until now 3D has been too expensive, too clumsy and too restricted,” said David Yarnton. “With Nintendo 3DS it’s mobile. It’s affordable. It’s glasses-free. And it’s here, now.”
You can pre-order a 3Ds right here on Shopto, in either black or blue. We reckon it’s well worth it.
