The epic battle between having cake and eating it is in full swing for Nintendo, as just following their claims the the 3DS sales will undoubtedly reach stratospheric levels are promises that demand will unfailingly be met. All of this despite the thing clearing the shelves in 12 hours in its home market of Japan.
“I know we haven’t published an actual number, and I know there have been a lot of reports out there talking about numbers. All of those numbers are way short of the actual number. So there is literally no reason why you won’t be able to go out tomorrow, Saturday, Sunday and buy one,” Nintendo’s James Honeywell explained.
As long as they manage to spin this into “we made sure to have enough stock to meet the crazy demand” and not “people aren’t buying enough of it and we have all this leftover stock” they’re probably safe. Also make sure to remind people you don’t want a retread of the infamous Christmas Wii shortages, Nintendo. Just to be on the safe side.Filed Under: Gaming News, Technology News
