In addition to the sales mark, it has been reported that several users have been experiencing crashes with the 3DS. Nintendo later issued a statement claiming, “there are no widespread issues.” In time, a firmware update may soon be implemented if the issue persists. Now, how about fixing the 3DS' battery life issue?
Hit the jump to see the full statement from Nintendo.
"U.S. day-one sales numbers for Nintendo 3DS were the highest of any Nintendo hand-held system in our history. More details about U.S. sales numbers will be made public on April 14, when first-week U.S. sales figures will be tallied by the independent NPD Group. Nintendo worked hard to get as much product as possible to retailers on day one to meet demand, and we will continue with these efforts moving forward."
