Ever wondered how well the Nintendo 3DS has been doing in terms of sales so far? Well, we’ve got the answer today. Nintendo announced today that the portable glasses-free 3D console has sold over 4.5 million units in the US alone. Compared to the original Nintendo DS which was released in 2004, the 3DS almost sold double the amount of units (Nintendo DS moved 2.3 million units in its first year).
It sure sounds like response to glasses-free 3D handheld consoles is pretty positive over in this side of the world. The Nintendo 3DS turns one on March 27th, and still has tons of new games slated to arrive on the console – not to mention over a thousand games already available for the DS (playable on the 3DS) so its future definitely looks bright. Here’s to a few more years of keeping this up! How many of you picked up a 3DS and how many of you are going to get one this year?
