While we still haven’t heard much about the 3DS this year, that hasn’t stopped many gamers and publications from discussing the device and its potential endlessly. The 3DS is likely to be unveiled and revealed at the Electronic Entertainment Expo (E3) next month which should be a very interesting debut if it turns out successfully.

EEDAR’s Jesse Divinch, according to IndustryGamers, has commented on Nintendo’s expectations from the 3DS during and after its launch. According to Divinch: “While Nintendo has not formally announced a timeframe for project 3DS, their financials speak a different story. According to their expected Nintendo DS and 3DS sales (they combine both sales into one category) our estimates indicate that Nintendo is expecting the 3DS to sell 5 million units by March 2011.”

“Given historical sales of the Nintendo DS, which coincidently sold 5 million units through March 2005, Nintendo is likely to announce that the 3DS will be available in at least two regions beginning in November 2010. Additionally, they are likely to reveal the project’s actual name.”

As for how the 3DS fares, we’ll sure to keep you up to date during E3 this year.
