@Dean: Well, 3DS launches in two months at $249.99. NGP will probably launch over here in March 2012 at the earliest and we don't know a price yet soo....
@Eddie: Glad to hear you found the money for the 3DS pre-order! When I get one it will either be in black or silver, whatever is available.
Black and Blue are the two launch colors.
I traded in my DSi towards the pre-order. Gamestop has a special right now for 75 bucks for a DSi towards a 3DS.
And since you didn't have any DSiware to transfer to your 3DS...
thank god. if I did I might have had to pay them to take it :P
Hahaha I've had a blast with DSiware. I've spent $150 on it and will probably buy another $100 during 2011. Love the bite sized games and if this is how we can get new games like Shantae or DodoGo! then I'll continue giving them my money.
yea can't do it...they are all pretty crappy games to me...same with mini's and most iphone games. I like mini puzzles or top down shooters etc...but most games are just attrocious.
As a Nintendo fan, I won't be getting this, at least not at launch. It's gonna take more than an inferior version of Mash Fighter IV and a port of one of the worst Nintendo games ever made (OoT) to keep me interested.
That, and it's too expensive for my taste. I'll wait for it to get cheaper, especially since the game I did want for it got pushed back (Kid Icarus).
Anyone see the new piracy/hombrew countermeasures?
in the 3DS TOS it points out that if you pirate/hombrew, they could brick the console if you continue to update it.
It apparently records everything you've played including pirated games, so if you pirate games and try to trade it in, some shops in the UK will not accept it.
If you don't pirate your games, then there's no cause for concern.
People will still hack it anyway. There's always a backdoor.
Not looking good in Japan at all....

OUCHY.. I'm assuming the games are hacked with a micro sd card like the reg DS?
I don't believe the 3DS has been hacked for 3DS games yet. R4 cards still work for DS cards but this machine remembers everything you played including R4 cards apparently.
Yep, it was hacked to recognize R4 cards but that's just because of the DS side of the new portable. They'd have to de-activate street pass ad perpetuam to get started...
i dont know why people still want to hack this stuff! and the r4 is now illegal, is it not?
TBH My daughter has the standard DS Lite, she keeps asking for a 3DS. However, when in Argos the other day they had one on display to have a play. And I wasnt impressed, it makes your eye focus go really weird. My concern is surely the amount children sometimes play on their DS it would possibly affect their eye sight?
Dont know what anyone else thinks?
ewwww 3DS bomba! Price will be dropped to $169 on August 12th due to its poor sales.
Posted about it, be sure to flame accordingly! I'm very happy as this means I'll get a 3DS for christmas as a $80 price cut puts it at the "buying it!" line.
AS for YOU Eddie, you'll get 20 free games!
