    3DS will "launch in all major markets by March 2011
    Confirmed by Reggie
    Reggie Fils-Aime stated that the Nintendo 3DS will be released in all major markets by March 31, 2011. That makes sense with all the other launch date rumors.

    That leaves the North American and Europe launch date either in the third or fourth quarter of 2010 or in Q1 of 2011. The rumors suggest the latter, though.

    This still confirms almost nothing sadly.

    I think were looking at

    Japan- Q3 2010
    North America- Q4 2010
    Europe- Q1 2011

    I thought we already knew this from the memo that confirmed the 3DS (way back in March 2010). Freaking Reggie, tell us some news. [​IMG]

    North America will certainly get it before 2010 is up... there's no way Nintendo wouldn't take advantage of the holiday shopping season. In any case, with the last 2 new hardware generations (the DS Phat, and Wii), North America get them 1.5-2 weeks before Japan. It's likely the launch in those 2 regions will be similarly close together this time around, as well.

    2010 is not too far and I want it ASAP. I didnt get the XL when I already have 3 small DSi's that I gave the two to my friend and to my sis.

    YEY!!! My very own 3DS will be soon.

    I still have doubts that it will be released this year. Next year in March seems more probable.

    The last thing we need is a 3DS Shortage due to a Holiday Time Release.

    I happen to work at a retail store, and I swear to god I do not want to see a mobbing of crazy people trying to get one.

    That's pretty much what I was thinking...I'm sure if it's at all possible they'll get it out in the US by Christmas.

    The Nintendo DS was announced and launched in the same year to great success. I can't imagine Nintendo not doing the same for the 3DS. The holiday season is too tempting not to take advantage of, and releasing it in Q1 of next year won't be beneficial since everybody will be broke. Japan and the U.S. will get it in October or November. Europe will have to wait until next year, but they're used to waiting.

    Well, I'm glad to know that it will be released in the U.S. by March 2011, but I am still hoping to see it by Christmas.

    I have a feeling the 3DS will be in short supply this Christmas. Just like how it was when the Wii launched.

    If the games actually look as good as all the vids, it won't just be a handheld gaming system, it will be a handheld CONSOLE.

    You just KNOW everyone at Ninty are all giggling and rubbing their hands together at all the cash they're gonna be raking in.

    In fact, the ONLY reason I can think of that would hurt the sales of the 3DS is if it would be defect prone.
