Amazon.com pulls 3DS from sale

The US arm of online retailer Amazon has suspended sales of Nintendo’s new handheld the 3DS.

While this item is available from other marketplace sellers on this page, it is not currently offered by Amazon.com because customers have told us there may be something wrong with our inventory of the item, the way we are shipping it, or the way it’s described here.

We’re working to fix the problem as quickly as possible.”

Examiner speculates that the move may be connected to an alleged screen-scratching issue, where some users have reported marks being left on the machine’s upper screen.

The site also claims newer shipments of the 3DS boast slightly longer rubber feet to protect against the issue, though there is no official confirmation of this.

MCV has contacted Nintendo for comment.
