    I already reserved and paid off a black 3DS, but thats for me.

    I am thinking about buying another one, but I don't know if I should buy a black or blue one.
    and if I should sell it a few days after launch or wait until Christmas?

    How much would I get for it on launch or Christmas respectably?

    Any ones guess, depends if it will sell out(probably will), though you know ebay takes a chunk out of your profits right?

    anyone who wanted it at launch would have preordered
    i dont think you could get better than $250 since most would just wait
    at christmas, if there is shortage, still $250 as price would have gone down at sales

    Save it for Christmas? I doubt it will be that hard to find eight months after its release.

    Well I have mine on Pre-order with Gamestation in the UK and i did sneak a look at the order book while the person wrote my details down it was pretty full. but mine has been secured for me now , whey , i expect the 2 millon units will sell out within day's i expect we will have a another classic wii shortage , if this happens it will shoot prices on ebay up. from what i see on ebay uk the prices are ranging pre-order from £229 upto over £300 around 485.594 dollars a piece.

    I'm #3 on my Gamestop's preorder list. And that's because I haggled for 3 days about the minimum downpayment. Unless they only get 2 units, this thing is mine in Cosmo Black on March 27th.
