The First Customer To Buy A 3DS Truly Deserved The Honor

Triforce, the determined gentleman who didn’t let NYPD stop him from waiting outside a Best Buy last week to be first in line to buy the Nintendo 3DS, was rewarded for his endurance.

Nintendo announced it made Triforce the first American to purchase the handheld game machine. Nintendo of America president Reggie Fils-Aime, pictured, handed the device over to Triforce, whom NYPD ushered away from a New York Best Buy last week at the behest of management. When the police went away, Triforce retook his position in front of the store.

If you bought a 3DS, which was released yesterday, what do you think of it?
