Nintendo Expecting High 3DS Sales This Weekend

27 Mar

As well as the iPad 2 going on sale in the UK tomorrow, the New Nintendo 3DS also goes on sale and Nintendo are expecting strong sales on launch day and also this weekend.

Nintendo UK told the guys over at CVG that they have already received 140,000 pre-orders of the 3DS tech gadgets here in the UK, and that they are expecting sales to be well over 200,000 by the end of the weekend.

I think we’re pretty safe in assuming that most people who pre-ordered will go out and get it in the first few days, and when you add on a few more who didn’t pr-order… I think we can easily exceed that 140,000 and sell 150,000, 160,000, perhaps even as high as 200,000.”

It looks like Nintendo are on track to break their previous first day sales record here in the UK, which is held by the Nintendo Wii which sold 100,000 consoles on the first day.
