    i get one if i have the money at that time, its probably going to a while before it is released in EU.
    Also if the games are expensive and there will not be possible to run flashcards on it.

    Why isn't there just a "Yeah I'm getting it on release" or something I won't pre order it until it's been confirmed when it's released and how much it will cost?

    i'm waiting to see what the long term affects are on the brain and eyes. the system interests me, i love 3d. i also want to see what games they come out with. waiting is usually a good idea because you can grab the system and games at a discount later on.

    i plan on getting one on release but i am not going to preorder one since I would get a discount at Wal-Mart, so i am getting one there on release. Also going to get Kid Icarus.

    Gonna wait a little while to and want to test the 3D effect out first. Also possible consequences from the 3D use for your eyes and health will affect my judgment.

    If I have the money, I'll purchase it at launch.
    If not, I'll just wait.

    I will buy it, but Im stuck on this choice:

    Pre-order and get it early or Go to a midnight launch, record it and have a great experience.

    I'm just going to import one at launch even if Mobile Suit Gundam isn't released at launch since it's the only launch game I want, I can just spend some Nintendo points on some 3DSware or whatever they call it and I can still play Pokemon Black or White whichever version I choose to import next month on the 3DS so no real loss.

    I'm going to listen and wait to see how well it works out for Nintendo. If everything checks out then I'll consider it.

    Huh? How/why can you preorder the 3DS already, when you still haven't seen anything of it? (Sure, you've seen the specs and some games, but you haven't seen what the 3DS's system software is actually like, maybe it's shit [​IMG])

    Anyway, I'll get one when it's out (= on launch day).

    Will wait as well and test it out...of course if they have a bunch of colors then who knows? As for a game, hmm...I do not know. Oh and the price here will be huge!!! I will have to ask a friend to buy it for me from the usa.

    nope, games will be expensive in europe, and nintendo will release a new version in a year or so after release so would be loosing money if i brought it now.

    I'll most likely pre-order it in USA and mail it to me through mail forwarder, 'cause it will be faster and cheaper than buying it here anyway -_-
