Happy Pre-Order a Nintendo 3DS Day!

They're not lining up to get a 3DS, but they're lining up to make sure they get a 3DS once it hits the stores next month.

The is so popular that people are starting to line-up around the techi-est district in Japan. But the 3DS won’t be launched until next month there, so what the heck are these people doing outside the streets of Akihabara? Don’t worry, these people are not planning to camp outside for 30+ days (though we wouldn’t be surprised if they did). These people are lining up to get a shot for the pre-orders of the handheld console which has officially kicked off today at retailers nationwide.

A blogger where the photo was posted has mentioned that around 260 people were lined up for pre-orders, but that was hours ago. Imagine how many people are out there waiting to get a reaffirmation that they’ll have one on release date. Reports say that only 400,000 units will be available upon release date. Nintendo has mentioned that a total of 1.5 million consoles will be available until the end of the fiscal year or March 31. No word yet as to how many 3DS units will be available in other parts of the globe once the console has been released on March 27.
