UK 3DS: "Seems to be enough stock"

But any more excitement and it'll sell out.

The UK should have enough 3DS launch stock to go around - but GAME has warned that if excitement builds then sell-outs are a real possibility.

GamesIndustry.biz reports that around 185,000 3DS handhelds are being allocated to the UK, which seems to be the most generous slice in Europe.

"There seems to be enough stock for launch," a GAME spokesperson said, "but if everybody who is excited about the product buys it, there probably will be stores (not just GAME or gamestation) that sell out."

"We're expecting queues for the launch of the 3DS, both for GAME and gamestation stories, when they open. The 3DS... has the potential for a huge following, and therefore a huge sell-through."

The Nintendo 3DS launches here on 25th March.
