He did it! Isaiah "Triforce" Johnson, the determined gamer who started camping out for the 3DS launch at Best Buy's Union Square location back on Monday, bought the first 3DS sold in the United States.

How crummy would it have been if the poor guy waited in line for days and didn't get the first US handheld? Yeah, that'd be a real downer. But, he was successful -- in more ways than one.

While he was at the launch event, Triforce also managed to get Nintendo of America president Reggie Fils-Aime to autograph his Power Glove, reports 3DS Gamer.
