If you're going to get one....wait for a few days before the price change...buy it from Best Buy...get your free games...return to best buy and say you want your discount due to a price drop within a week of your purchase and tada....get the best of both worlds.
but that $150 worth of content is really worth like 50 cents....or free....freaking 10-20 year old games lol...why not add some colecovision or atari 2600 games to it?
3DS still has a long road ahead of it. It needs to differentiate itself from the DS. the average consumer just believes its another iteration of the DS. I mean we have had the fat, lite, DSi, XL and so on so I can see the confusion.
It's library is its biggest problem right now. Sure over time that will be fixed but it really has nothing worthwhile yet.
Their stocks crashed due to this announcment. Dropped 20% to a 6 year low.
I can only play zelda and metroid so many times lol this is where the tech is going though so I can see people buying now just for the smaller older games. A recent study showed that more people would buy a game they wouldnt even like if the unlock able was an older game like excitebike. Sad but true.
Right now if I owned a 3DS I'd get Pilotwings, Ocarina of Time, RAbbids Travel in Time, Ghost Recon Shadow Wars, Steel Diver and $40 in eShop credit. Looking forward to Layton, Lautrec, Cave Story, Devil Survivor Overclocked and Stafox 64 3D in the short term. While I get my 3DS I'll play my DS library (currently on FF IV and then I'll do Dragon Quest IV).
I've played it for an hour and had fun with it. Enough fun as to purchase the game new. And the coins I'll get from it are a nice bonus as well.
As an aside, just to give you an idea of how important Nintendo gaming is in our family: My brother, my sister and I have gotten Platinum status (600 coins which was obtained at 50 coins per Wii game and 30 coins per DS game along with an extra 10 coins for the post play survey of said registered games) two years in a row and this year I was even able to get Platinum status for my godson's account. For the 2011-2012 year it will be 3DS and DS purchases that will get us there. The figurine for last year was awesome and the pins for this year look great as well.
Oh, and I totally got Ultimate member status at the Square Enix Rewards Program so I supports my PSP/PS3 as well!
