Nintendo had mentioned that the 3DS set a day-one US sales record, and now we have some actual numbers. Looks like 400,000 3DS units were sold in the month of March. The DS’ overall March sales totaled 460,000. Remember the 3DS launched at the end of march, so this is one weeks sales.
Obviously it won’t keep up the pace forever, but with the Legend of Zelda game, the launch of the E-Shop, and Netflix integration all coming this summer, the future looks bright for the 3DS.
