The Nintendo 3DS is scheduled to go on sale in the UK next week, on Friday March the 25th, and it has been available to pre-order on Amazon and a number of other retailers.
Amazon UK has released some details on the amount of pre-orders for the Nintendo 3DS, and whilst they don’t quote any specific unit sales, they have revealed that the Nintendo 3DS has now taken the title of the most pre-ordered console.
According to Amazon, the previous record was held by Sony’s PlayStation 3, and they have now received 20 percent more pre-orders for the Nintendo 3DS.
“It’s unusual for a handheld console to attract this amount of excitement in the run up to launch, such high levels of interest are normally reserved for the play-at-home hardware like the ground-breaking Nintendo Wii and last year’s Microsoft Kinect,” said Amazon UK’s director of video games, Chris Poad.
It will be interesting to see how populat the Nintendo 3DS becomes, it could end up becoming the most popular handheld games console if sales figures keep up with the pre-order figures.
