    Still another 2/3 weeks to complete its first year in the US, that's not bad nearly doubling up against the DS. DS really took off in its second year, interesting stuff to see.

    Twin stick 3DS and monster hunter this year, yeah that'd be a beast, actually MH doesn't sell well in the west, probably could if Nintendo can influence it in some way. Lets see if any more big titles are announced at this years E3. 2D Mario is also hitting the shores this year and maybe that new 3DS zelda game will come out late this year as well.

    Well I meant a 3DSXL revision with two circle pads. I was focusing on new games that would be ready for the holiday season, that's where they big money is made. ;)

    16 million people to play online against! whoop!

    I just recently got one so this is great news.

    I have been getting streetpass hits nearly every single day and usually a few at once (groups of friends I guess)
    I like how their are lots of built in games and just walking near someone with a 3ds helps me complete those games. Also you get coins for walking and you can buy in-game extras with them, along with this you have Nintendo video and eurosport 3d and the eshop make this a great system to own. I am very pleased with my purchase.

    I can't wait to see how the 3DS will perform in its second year (hint: even better than the first).

    At the rate its going soon everyone who knows about the 3DS will have one. Then Nintendo will lose sales because everyone will already own one.

    I never thought I'd be so pleased with my 3DS. Starfox643DS, Mario Kart7, SFIV... we have some quality games in there (which weren't available in NDS), plus some brand new ones AND 3rd party support. Capcom has been quite helpful in terms of sales to Nintendo, plus having some gems ported to handhelds

    I am sure that Nintendo will be distraught if they manage to sell a 3DS to everyone that could possibly buy one. :sad:

    I have a hunch they wouldn't be very depressed about it. xP
