Nintendo 3DS sales figures for US launch

Despite some people complaining of problems with their Nintendo 3DSs, the company managed to shift around 400,000 of the units during the first week in the US. The company experienced quite a good month during March in the country.

Adam Rosenberg from Digital Trends is reporting that March was a really good month for Nintendo in the US. They also managed to shift 460,000 DS units, and 290,000 of its Wii console which brought the hardware total for the month 1.1 million.

The 3DS fell short of the 500,000 that the DS achieved in its first week of release in 2004, but the DS was launched during the holiday season and at a time when there was more money around. The Nintendo Wii was also launched around the same time of year.

Despite what people may think about the 3DS, to sell 400,000 units in one week under the current financial market is quite an achievement. If Nintendo had a better lineup of launch games it could have sold even more. Surely as better 3D titles become available the consoles popularity will grow.

What do you think of the sales figures for the 3DS?
