Nintendo Sold 400,000 3-D Handheld Units in First Week

Nintendo sold almost 400,000 units of the 3DS, the new glasses-free 3-D handheld game unit, during its first week on sale, according to NPD Group. In comparison, the original DS system sold 460,000 units during the whole month of March, Nintendo confirmed. NPD estimated that the 3DS sold about 100,000 units less than the DS during its launch month, but that the DS benefited from being released during the holiday season and priced $100 less. Nintendo also said it sold 290,000 Wii consoles in March.
