Nintendo is staring at some three-dimensional stacks of cash today. Nintendo of America issued a press release claiming that "U.S. day-one sales numbers for Nintendo 3DS
were the highest of any Nintendo hand-held system in our history." Update:
that's unit sales
, according to Nintendo.
The publisher declined to comment on exact numbers, saying only that more information will be available when the NPD releases its report on the first-week sales. We guess that $250 price point wasn't much of a deterrent after all. Find the full statement after the break.
