The First Person in the US to get the Nintendo 3DS

Isaiah “Triforce” Johnson pictured above wearing the Nintendo Power Glove was the first person to receive the new Nintendo 3DS on Saturday. Not only was he the first but Nintendo president Reggie Fils-Aime and Best Buy vice president Michael Vitelli greeted him and handed over the 3DS. Why is he so special?

Triforce started waiting in line on Monday, 6 days before the release. Best Buy actually called the NYPD and had him escorted away but that didn’t stop him from coming back to wait in line the next day. Raw Game Play covered the story and Nintendo heard of it and told Best Buy to leave him alone. Triforce said that he has always waited in line to be the first to score Nintendo gear and the 3DS was no difference. Below is the video that made him famous.
