Nintendo 3DS opening weekend sales: 113,000

by Darren Allan

The 3DS has recorded Nintendo’s top console sales figures for its initial weekend, but only just.

The device went on sale last weekend, with midnight openings at Game and HMV seeing plentiful queueing of those wanting to get their hands on some glasses-free 3D gaming action.

Nintendo has revealed the official sales tally for the weekend, Videogamer.com reports, and it’s 113,000 units.

That beats out the Wii’s total of 106,000, but only just. It’s a slightly disappointing figure given analysts estimations of pre-ordering, which reckoned sales in line with 140,000 were going to be achieved.

European sales of the 3DS totalled 303,000, so the UK represented a good chunk of that.
