"It's unusual for a handheld console to attract this amount of excitement in the run up to launch," said Amazon.co.uk 's director of games, Chris Poad.
"Such high levels of interest are normally reserved for the play-at-home hardware like the ground-breaking Nintendo Wii and last year's Microsoft Kinect."
He added: "Nintendo 3DS is launching at a time when interest in all things 3D is incredibly high and with the promise of real 3D graphics without glasses, it's a real breakthrough in handheld video game entertainment".
Amazon has just dropped the price of 3DS on its website to £187.
