    That probably means $299 for pre-orders and $240 for everyone else [​IMG]

    Also nice charging dock for the 3DS

    Expect long lines in America and Japan with shortages in America, better start pre-ordering. I'll preorder when Play Asia has it available for preorder which could be in the next few weeks.

    I think I'll just wait for a flashcard for the 3DS that runs DS, DSi and 3DS games.

    Hm, that probably explains the rumors about the 3DS release date on November this year.

    Anyways, poor Iwata [​IMG]

    And if it's region-locked? You'll be stuck buying more expensive, import games for the life of the system.

    Bullshit. It's gonna happen, just not anytime soon.

    I'll happen eventually. I don't care when, though, as long as there's some device like the NDS Adapter Plus that lets me dump save data off cartridge relatively soon after launch. I like having a backup of the save data on my PC in case I lose the cartridge somehow; can just restore it when I buy a new copy.

    Well Nintendo did not bother blocking flash carts on DSi XL.

    They DO bother blocking flash carts on DSi, just look at 1.4.1.

    if they have a lower starting price, say $250 or lower,
    i still might get the 3DS when it comes out.
    Otherwise, I'm gonna wait.

    So all those people saying it would come out this year were partially right. They at least had their finger on the pulse of Nintendo. Too bad it didn't happen. I don't want to spend my money on Kinect, but now it seems like that's what I'm going to do.
