Analyst: 3DS sales tailing off

Could still sell 11.6 million by the end of 2011

Colin Sebastian, analyst for Lazard Capital Markets has been discussing the prospects for Nintendo's new 3DS now that it has arrived.

Sebastian said that sales have slowed significantly after the initial rush during the release window.

He explained: "Based on our recent checks, we believe that sales of the 3DS have slowed considerably since the initial launch window, although the Easter holiday could provide a near-term boost."

Screen Digest believes that, despite the slowing sales the 3DS will sell around 11.6 million units by the end of 2011.
