There was plenty of excitement in Japan this morning as the eagerly awaited Nintendo 3DS finally went on sale.

As an example, apparently more than 2,000 gaming fans gathered outside one particular electronics shop in Akihabara, Tokyo, to try and pick up one of the new hand-helds. Other retailers in the area had already sold out on pre-order.

With the 3DS due for release in both the US and Europe next month I’m fairly sure we will see similar scenes then.
