EA calls Nintendo 3DS 'magical' & says it will sell 'like hotcakes'

And now EA has said what we’ve all been saying: the Nintendo 3DS is quite the piece of kit. Granted, EA doesn’t used the same bit of forced Briticism that I just did, but the feelings are the same: Nintendo has a hit on its hands. It’s one that when one of us say it, but EA?

EA’s COO, John Schappert, told IndustryGamers that the Nintendo 3DS will “sell like hotcakes.” For anyone born after the year 1960, “selling like hotcakes” is an idiom that means an item or product will sell very well.

He continues:

The 3DS is just incredibly cool. The 3DS is magical. You put that in your hand, you look down, and all of a sudden it’s in 3D without glasses. That’s an amazing experience. I’m a huge fan.

The only problem with this statement is that I’m pretty sure Apple owns the exclusive rights to the word “magical” when used to describe a piece of consumer electronics.

(That’s a joke. Calmate.)

Let’s put it like this: raise you hand if you think the 3DS will not be a big hit, both critically and commercially? If your hand is in the air then you’re one of the few. Congrats.
