“This is a very different type of proposition versus what our competitions may be doing,” he said.

I got a chance to check out the 3DS there at the show, and while our camera doesn’t pick up the effect, it’s actually amazing. Apparently folks in Japan agree: Fils-Aime told me Nintendo sold 400,000 units in the first 48 hours of Japanese sales last week, the fastest sell-out ever.
The 3DS arrives here in the U.S. on March 27 for 250 bucks.
