    I am not preordering the game

    Shouldn't that be changed to one of those below or something like that.

    I am not preordering the 3ds
    I am not preordering the game system

    If you are talking about a game sorry there really isn't much hinting towards that.

    Two is "no, but I will", and three is "no, and I won't".

    I'd pre-order it if only that were possible in this shitty country.

    (And if someone actually knows where to pre-order a 3DS here, tell me about it!)

    I pretty much got that but I found that the third option saying it was a game was missing information since it is a game system.

    I have not yet but plan on it.

    Have Gamestop/EB taking pre-orders for it in the U.S. yet?

    I may just let my wife pick one up at her work (Walmart) when it comes out. She can get a 10% discount on it for me.

    Nope not pre-ordering it. Gonna wait to see how it turns out before I risk the chance of wasting money on a game.

    So I'm passing by a GameStop, and I remember the news about Canadian preorders. So I drop in, and ask the shopgirl if they're taking them. She checks the computers, tells me they were just added to their system, and the down payment is $25. However, where I preorder is where I pick up. So I decide to head over to the GameStop right next to my school. I drop in, talk to the shopgirl, she tells me that she hasn't really heard anything, but standard preorders for all consoles is $50. I tell her I heard differently, and ask her to check her computers. She tells me she's been working there for 5 years (respect gone) and that it's always been that way, and thus there's no need to check the system. I can't convince her. While they're at it, the male clerk contradicts me and tells me that Nintendo did not announce March as the NA release date at the September 29th conference. He says he "absolutely guarantees it".

    Bloody GameStop. I'll drop by again and hope the same idiots aren't in.

    I just lost even more respect for GameStop. I dropped in again today. This time, armed with a news article about the $25 preorders. That, and a photo of an EB receipt with a $25 3DS preorder on it. Yeeeah. Turns out that annoying shopgirl was the bloody manager. And none of the clerks are permitted to disagree with her. I talked to an asian guy who said he won't check the computers either because his boss' word is final, and that maybe I should preorder at the location that gave me the correct information. Photographic proof need not apply, when denial comes to the rescue!

    I guess I'll bring a few more bills and preorder at $50. Buggers,

    I'm going to finish paying off my credit card then I'm going to bank a few grand then I'll pay cash for one in the spring. Who knows, maybe they'll be a flash card by then.

    If I can scrounge the cash between now and March (doubt it) I'll preorder. Otherwise I'll wait until Christmas (unless games such as Layton vs Wright actually come out in English within a reasonable timeframe).

    Nope I didn't pre-ordered it because it's much more fun buying it in a store ^^ The pressure before buying it and after it ^^

    Got more money. As much as I detest the employees there now, I'll order anyway.

    Well, it is coming out in the spring and I doubt there will be a flash cart by then if at all. I mean, it has an SD slot, which is probably more likely to be the first place to start trying to hack.

    I'll have to wait and see where it's cheapest/which places are doing the best deals.

    No, I won't be pre-ordering.
    I'll be purchasing the 3DS using a combination of gift-cards and cash so I won't be able to pre-order it.

    Yup. Preordered at double the minimum down-payment because my EB is full of retards. Ah well. I'll pay less in March.
