Nintendo 3DS Sparks Gamer Stampede

As the E3 of four years ago wrapped up there was a famously large stampede.

The last day of that show, the show when Nintendo gave attendees a chance to get their hands on the Wii and its motion gaming, the second the doors opened people ran through the halls, past competitors, past other games to get their final chance to check out the Wii before the console went on sale.

This year's E3, the E3 when Nintendo unveiled their 3D portable gaming console, people seemed just as excited to run through the floor to get into what became a mammoth Nintendo line.


How mammoth? Well there were two of them, one of the Zelda and the other for the 3DS. Both were huge, but only the 3DS one was so big that it almost wound its way right back out of the show floor and into the parking lot.

Last I heard, the 3DS line wait was up to four hours. Impressive!
