I'm telling you, this thing is gonna take over. Remember when Wii was sold out for a year over here in the states? Well, Japan is experiencing this as we speak. 3DS launch in Japan was a huge success, with all 400,000 systems spoken for in a single day. Almost every sale was a pre-order purchase, so there weren't any mad dashes or trampled consumers when stores opened up for business. Better pre-order yours now.
