Gamespot reports that the 3DS has received roughly twice the amount of pre-orders of Nintendo's flagship console, the Nintendo Wii. The gaming site cites Lazard Capital Markets analyst Colin Sebastian, who in turn cites Nintendo's own data. The exact number of pre-orders has not been released, although Sebastian claims that the two-to-one ratio has been confirmed by Nintendo.
The 3DS launches on Thursday here in New Zealand. Game Console got hold of one last Friday, and we'll endeavour to post up our impressions before the retail launch for those who may still be sitting on the fence.
