Analysts do a u-turn; 3DS is now poised for success they say
It looks like Nintendo managed to turn the 3DS’ fortunes around, and the analysts who were skeptical of the system’s future are now predicting that, it may be a successful product after all. Who would have thought, eh?
Michael Patcher (needs no introduction) revealed to Eurogamer that he was a bit surprised about 3DS’ sales.
“It’s very successful, but ran into a headwind given its relatively high price – which I incorrectly thought was the right price – and lack of third party software support,” he said.
“Now that we are seeing more first party titles at a lower price point, sales have increased. It’s definitely turned the corner.
“I was surprised that it sold so few at the $249 price point, and its sales to date are exactly what I originally forecasted at that price.”
Of course, they said a lot more things, but yeah the bottomline is, the Nintendo 3DS is here to stay.
