I tend to agree with Mr. Patcher. The 3DS is expensive, but it is still going to be selling like hot cakes out the gate. As he stated, it appears the 3DS has really enticed the hardcore audience, versus the DS’s reach out the casuals and family. Now, is the 3DS sales wise going to match the DS out the gate? Hardly, but I fully expect the 3DS to have a healthy and long life cycle (5 to 8 years) and sell over 100 million units, if not more. As long as third parties continue to show amazing support for the platform, I think you will continue to see sales rise, as the bridge between handhelds and consoles continues to diminish even more.
