Nintendo 3DS: Pre-Ordered & Pre-Ordered & Pre-Ordered

The Nintendo 3DS is now the single most pre-ordered video game console ever. Well, according to, and you’d have to assume that most, if not all, of those pre-orders are going to UK residents.

The site notes that the 3DS has surpassed the previous record-holder, the PS3, by some 20 percent.

It also surpassed the Wii, which just so happens to be the previous most pre-sold Nintendo console, by 56 percent.

The previous most pre-ordered DS, the DSi, has been bested by 255 percent.

All of this to state the obvious: the 3DS will be quite popular. This probably won’t come as a surprise to you, no.
