The Nintendo 3DS has been out since Sunday in the US, and first-day sales are looking very good for Nintendo. According to the company, "US day-one sales numbers for Nintendo 3DS were the highest of any Nintendo handheld system in our history."

While no specific figures were given, this statement means the 3DS outsold the original DS, the DS Lite and the DSi, which is pretty amazing, given the amount of hype and interest there was in those systems.

Nintendo also addressed the reports that the device is having technical problems, saying:

"The number of calls and emails received by our customer support center is well below the rate experienced during past hardware launches, and there are no widespread issues."

If you're having technical issues with your 3DS, Nintendo says you should  to visit their support website  or call its help line at 800-255-3700.

Have you guys been able to find the 3DS on store shelves?
