Gamestop boss Bob McKenzie has told VentureBeat that DSi pre-orders are significantly higher than they were for the first DS.
“We’ve seen some pretty brisk pre-orders on DSi,” he said.
“It’s probably double where we were on the original DS, as far as reservation activity, so we’re expecting some great things from that.”

There’s clearly a “messaging” issue going on here. Despite GameStop CEO Dan DeMatteo saying a month ago that getting a Wii this Christmas was going to be some kind of living hell, GameStop vice president of merchandising, Bob McKenzie, has told MTV that no one needs to worry. It’s all going to be fine.
“It’s been a unique ride for Nintendo to have the Wii going into a third year this November where the consumer may still be searching for it,” he said.
“Our look from Nintendo, though, is that it will be much, much better than it has been the last two years. I can’t say we will be in stock every day throughout the holiday season but I can tell you that the current flow we’ve seen coming from Nintendo on Wii hardware makes us very confident that we will meet the business model that we’ve got.”
