The Nintendo 3DS has been doing pretty well in the US and all the other parts of the western region.
Nintendo’s Bill Trinen said that the Nintendo 3DS will be out in the US this year because of the soon releasing games.
We have noticed that in the US in particular, people tend to, at least when it comes to handheld gaming, they tend to shift generations a lot more slowly than they do particularly in Japan. In Japan, once a new handheld system comes out it’s like everybody just goes right to it.
GameBoy Advance was the same way; DS was the same way; 3DS now. It does take a couple of years. But then once it does, it really builds steam and so with the lineup that we’re seeing this year, to me it really feels like this is the year that 3DS is really going to take off.
