    Yeah, I read as far as where you say you'll get an NGP because the 3DS is too expensive. I imagine the NGP will be free, right?

    I'm getting it whenever Resident Evil (either one) or OoT comes out.

    Look at his profile name, he clearly has a steady high-paying job.

    I'm waiting until Zelda, Starfox, and Cave Story are all available. Also, I want to know which ds-mode flashcart(s) is going to work after the first volley of firmware updates.

    After something interesting comes along. Currently the lineup for the 3DS is so poor compared to what the DS has still to offer (there are tens, maybe hundreds of good games around that I haven't played). The DSi XL I just bought will do a better job at DS/DSi games than the 3DS can (apparently according to others, haven't tried myself yet). I already have a MBP for portable internet etc and the N8 I just bought will arrive soon. Probably will have better internet than the 3DS at launch..

    >Meaning that at the moment I don't have much cash and my work is rather inconsistent.
    >Meaning that if I had the cash I'd rather get the NGP first.
    >You implying that I'm trying to criticize the 3DS price when I clearly stated I wasn't criticizing it.

    I have no plans to get one, possibly when OoT comes out, or when the 3DS Lite comes out. But not anytime soon unless I come across a large sum of disposable cash [​IMG] Just can't justify spending money on it unfortunately... [​IMG]

    I don't plan to get one at launch, as none of the titles really appeal to me. When some more games come out and I have some cash, I'll pick one up.

    [title:People Talking to Guild]Look at it this way, most people here would get the 3DS over the NGP if they could only afford one.
    Guild would get the NGP over the 3DS if he only had the money to get one.

    He's obviously a Sony Troll and his posts directly affect Nintendo's success, thus hurting their sales and running them out of business.
    He has a different opinion than you do.

    I am sot sure. I may get one if the 3DS gets hacked, even if I can not run ROMs. The earlier versions are always the easiest to hack.

    One minute past midnight. Even if I have to sell my 360 to do it. I don't care at this point, I just want a picture of Samus Aran firing lasers at my cat.

    When the UK price hits something resembling sensible and when there are games I actually want to play.

    I plan on waiting outside my GameStop on March 27, at 8:59. Grabbing my 3DS at 9:01, and opening the box at 9:02.
