GameStop: 3DS sales will lag behind expectations

0

US retailer GameStop is apparently disappointed in the 3DS' sales performance, stating that Nintendo's latest handheld isn't going to perform as well as everybody thought it did once the results are in. 

"We were very excited about 3DS when it launched. [It] was one of the highest market shares we've ever had for a Nintendo launch at 45%, said president Tony Bartel. "I think there have been reports that the numbers are lagging from what the expectations were in the US, and I think our results will be in line with that.

"In [fiscal] Q2 [ending July], we do expect we will fall slightly short of what we expected. We were excited at the launch, but in Q2 we believe it will slightly lag [behind] our expectation."

The 3DS has not had the greatest start. Between mainstream press writing scare stories and giving negative reviews, the lack of software support since release, and system-selling features that still aren't implemented yet, Nintendo's console has not been the darling it was before launch. That's what happens when you rush out an unfinished console just to keep your shareholders happy.
