Those who want to be the first to get the Nintendo 3DS, which features the ability to play titles in 3D without the need for glasses, might want to head down to a GameStop store and plunk down $50.

According to the manager at my local GameStop store, the retailer is accepting pre-orders nationwide. However, the person did not know how much the device will cost or when it will be released.

Nintendo first unveiled plans to offer the 3D portable gaming device in March. The company said at the time that it would "succeed [the] Nintendo DS series."

Since then, Nintendo revealed that the 3DS would be made available in the U.S. and Europe in March. The company will sell the device in Japan for around $300, Nintendo revealed earlier this year. However, it stopped short of revealing a specific price for the U.S. and European markets.
