Nintendo 3DS Sells 113k Units During UK Launch

Sales figures have been released from the UK's Nintendo 3DS launch, and despite them falling considerably short of Nintendo's expected sell-through, they're still rather happy.

Nintendo had predicted a minimum of 140,000 units and many analysts believed that the figure could have been anywhere near as high as 200,000. However, Nintendo 3DS only sold 113,000 during its launch weekend.

Nintendo were still delighted with the results though, as it was the company's most successful hardware launch in the UK. It's still some way short of other launches though, with the PSP though, which managed to sell 185,000 units.
