Analyst: Nintendo 3DS To Sell 11.6 Million In 2011

Analyst firm Screen Digest has predicted that Nintendo's latest handheld console, the Nintendo 3DS, will sell around 11.6 million units during its first year.

This is only just shy of the 13.1 million units sold in the first year by the Nintendo DS, Nintendo DS Lite and Nintendo DSi combined - rather solid then really.

However, Screen Digest also predicted that the Nintendo 3DS wouldn't sell as quickly in the long-term, as compared to its predecessor. After four years, they believe it will have sold 69.9 million units - at this stage, the Nintendo DS was at 90.9.
