donniebaseball23 writes: Nintendo 3DS is grabbing all the attention today after the handheld's launch over the weekend. Anecdotal reports from various retail chains, however, point to there being plenty of supply in the channel still. So what gives? Analysts actually weren't surprised by the supply situation. "With an estimated 1.9MM units shipped into the NA/EU channel, I wouldn't anticipate any stock-outs," EEDAR's Jesse Divnich said. DFC Intelligence's David Cole added, "Nintendo forecast shipping 4 million units of the 3DS through March 31. That is just a huge amount of hardware. It would be an absolute mind blowing record if they sold out of all of them in such a short time."
