Nintendo Sold 4.5 Million 3D Units
Nintendo said Tuesday that it sold 4.5 million 3DS units in its first 11 months available in the U.S. The console was released March 27, 2011.
“Nintendo 3DS closes its first year with a lengthy list of accomplishments but we’re still just scratching the surface,” Nintendo of America President Reggie Fils-Aime said in a statement.
“With a massive lineup of first- and third-party games and more on the way, a budding library of entertainment options and an engaged and growing installed base, Nintendo 3DS has an incredibly bright future. We’re just getting started but this platform is built for the long haul.”
