3DS Preorders More Than Double The Wii's

Hey, did you know that the 3DS is landing on Sunday? Japan has been messing around with glasses-free 3D for over a month and Europe got their hands on the latest Nintendo portable today. It feels like the Game Boy Advance launch!

I must not be the only one feeling that way because the 3DS has reached new preorder heights:

We've been seeing very strong demand for the Nintendo 3DS. We've been working very closely with Nintendo to maintain our reservations, to keep them open, and Nintendo's been very good in providing us with additional supply. But demand has been so strong that we are working literally every day with Nintendo to ensure that we have sufficient product.

That's Gamestop's Tony Bartel.

What's more, Nintendo has confirmed that preorder numbers for the Nintendo 3DS has reached a point by which they double the Nintendo Wii's numbers at the same point before the home console's launch.

Now for some perspective: The Wii was VASTLY understocked before its own launch. The 3DS probably has much more availability. I camped out to preorder a Wii. I'm confident in the fact that I'll probably be able to walk into a store on Sunday morning and find a 3DS available for me without a preorder. Anyone with money that says I'm wrong? Say $250?
