    The official release date is not even announced yet, but, we might just gonna need this topic.

    The 29th of September we might know the US/EU/AU/UK dates too, but at least Nintendo is gonna announce the JP region launch date on that day.

    We probably all remember the launch of the Nintendo Wii, it was a rough thing to get.
    Even when you Pre-ordered it. You could be sure you couldn't get it anymore if you went to the shop midday or in the evening. And therefore had to wait weeks to months to get one afterwards.

    Pre-ordering doesn't seem to mean anything, unless you have relation ships at the shop. So start getting a temporally job over at your shop or visit and buy stuff there a lot and have longer chats. [​IMG]

    Anyway, here you can talk about your Pre-order feelings and preparing's of the 3DS.
    Gonna sleep at the front of shops's door? Or thrust on you Pre-order ticket?
    Going with friends? Truant from school to get it, in the morning launch day?

    Shear it right here.

    Mine story will be in this spoiler as I'm the topic starter. Makes the topic look better IMO hehe.

    I missed getting a Wii at Superstore by one unit. One. I'll not make the same mistake this time. I'm going much earlier, since there's no local shops I can stay over at that will sell it at launch.

    I'm probably going to preorder it.
    I'm not going to camp out for it, though! I'll just get it from my local Blockbuster later in the day.

    Under the stress of peer pressure, I'll preorder it in October. Actually a good idea, now that I think about it.

    I'm not going to bother pre-ordering, as most of the games I am interested in probably won't come out until late 2011, or 2012.

    You could just pre-order online and get it delivered to your house, it's less risky and you're gauranteed to get it.

    Oh what did you say? Right you want to be able to be first people to get it? Well when I pre-order I always get things a day or two early.

    Well that's in the UK

    Over here there was a massive bargain when Modern Warfare 2 launched, the game was meant to cost £45 but Sainsbury's(Equivalent to a Walmart, no one buys games from a supermarket) they were selling the game for £26, it's funny since I watched the advert the day before it was released. I told my brother and he went to the store in the morning at first there was like 10-15 people then it increased to about 50. What's funny is that my friend was talking to my brother while they were in the line, and we're in class and you just see him coming into school at 9:15 (School starts at 8:30 and the store opens at 8:00)

    If I do get it early, Im just going to show it off to people while they're lining up [​IMG]

    im never gna buy anything or pre-order anything on launch ever again (bad experience, long story)

    i will wait for hardware tests, hardware reviews, some games to pop up. Heck if i have to wait a good 2/3 months i dnt mind. This is so the case since we really dnt know much about the 3DS other than some hardware specs, some games, but nothing serious about the firmware, or the interface in general.

    You could have added an Option like "I wanna see how the 3D looks like".
    If you had, I would have chosen this, because if the 3D effect is not as good as everybody says I wouldn't buy it.
    I hope that I can test it at this years GamesCom

    I'm gonna pre-order, but I don't know how crowded it will get; my local EB Games is in the mall.


    I'll just go and wait, and if they run out, I'll probably bargain to get my pre-order half off or something.

    Over here I don't think you can preorder for store pick up over here. Also I've worked at HMV, and over here if you pre-order you are garunteed to get it, especially if it's HMV. If HMV does take Pre-Order for instore pick up, it's garunteed that you can get it since they label the system/games as your own, all you need is your reservation number and ID.

    I don't get why people wouldn't preorder, since if it's like the wii, you're better off to since you're garunteed to get one.

    Bull fuckin shit, I didn't pre-order my wii, I waited, IN MY CAR, overnight at a circuit city (we all got out of our cars to wait in a line a few hours before they opened.) Dipshits about a mile away were camped out at the best buy for days. Even after everyone in line got their wii, there were still wiis left (probably not for long.)

    So my point is, fuck pre-ordering. Just drive around and find the smallest line. If you do what everyone else does (preorder,) you fuck yourself with 1 huge line instead of picking the small line/wait.
