    When are you planning on getting a 3DS? As for me, I'll only be able to get it 2 weeks after launch [​IMG]

    When MGS3D comes out if MGS3 is not available on the NGP by then (since it seems safe to assume that the NGP will get PS2 titles on it, I'd think).

    Probably after I get a NGP though. It's not high on my list of things I want right now, especially since just getting the system alone would put a dent into my cash, plus paying $40 per game doesn't help. Not really criticizing the prices, just my finance isn't exactly "large" at the moment.

    EDIT: And yeah, I'd take the PS2 version of MGS3 over the 3DS version, mainly because of controls. I'd rather have the dual analog stick control than the better graphics and 3D (unless they completely remake the game and give it the new third person shooter perspective of Peace Walker).

    Probably in a few months, when better games are out and I have cash and bought my iPad 2 [​IMG]

    Launch, have had it on pre-order for 2 months now.
    (Kinda) Like Slyakin, I'm a bit of a fangirl... :/

    I wish you luck finding one (at a decent price).

    I am getting it at launch, waiting for it in the morning. I am SO psyched about it you don't even understand.

    I'll probably only get Street Fighter IV 3D a week after I get the 3DS.

    I will be getting on on summer when the big games come out. No reason to buy a 3DS on release date.

    I'm picking mine up on 3/27/2011 at approximately 1:15 P.M.

    I normally work 8-3 on Sundays, but I'm leaving at 1. I'm literally going to die at work that day. I'll probably leave even earlier than that.

    I'm getting Pilotwings Resort most likely, and maybe Samurai Warriors like a week later or something.

    I'm getting it at launch. The launch games may be lacking, but I'd rather not wait. I'm gonna live it up raiding faces and taking 3D pics and most likely flying around in Pilot Wings. Then it's only a short (read "excruciatingly long") 3 or so month wait for OoT3D. The world will then lose all contact with me while I delve once again into the greatest game of all time.

    OF ALL TIME!

    Not sure myself. If I can't go to Anime Boston this year, I will use the money I saved for that to buy one in April. If I do go to Anime Boston, my boyfriend plans on buying me on for my birthday in August.

    Probably the summer. I have no money right now, and summer means free time.

    I have it per-order, but down by a little. I was told it was mine and wouldn't be given away.

    So launch or a few days later.
