Micro makes solid debut

The Micro attracted better-than-expected orders on its Japanese debut on Tuesday, though less than Game Boy Advance SP originally did. Retailers have been receiving pre-orders of about 70% of total inventory which is still very solid.

Nintendo is aiming to sell 4 million units of the Micro worldwide by next March. It should be interesting to see how the unit sells in the US next week. I remember asking this about the Nintendogs Japanese-to-US transition, so do you think the Micro has any chance of making a repeat? I don’t think so, but neither did a lot of people about the US Nintendogs launch, and it was a huge success.
