    Just wondering what everyone is doing to obtain their 3DS.

    As for me, I'm going to the midnight launch at a nearby Best Buy. Hopefully I'll get there in time to get one.
    I Just gotta do the launch. It's just part of the experience for me, did the same for Wii at Walmart back in 2006.

    So excited! [​IMG]

    I was just going to try to get one as soon as possible, but can't go shopping Sunday. My pre-order will be here Tuesday.

    I got my preorder down months ago 'cause I knew this thing would sell like copies of 'Heat' in a nunnery. I'm going to the midnight launch in just a couple of hours to pick it up, and as many games as my rather feeble wages will allow. If they're at their usual standard I can grab one great game plus Ridge Racer as Ridge Racer is reduced. Yay for discounts [​IMG]

    Assuming my wages show up at all, that is. Sometimes inexplicably takes them a few hours to clear. I'll be pissed off if that happens. Means not only do I have to wait but I have to do the empty handed walk of shame all the way home in the cold and the dark.

    I pre-ordered it, and I'm picking it up at midnight.

    For the Wii, I pre-ordered it, but wasn't going to get it at launch with my pre-order, so I canceled it and camped out with a friend at Wal-mart. We both got one after a little more than 14 hours.

    With the DSi, I knew it wouldn't sell out like crazy, so I pre-ordered it like 2 days before it came out. I picked it up at midnight anyway.

    I pre-ordered mine quite some time ago, true enough there's a midnight launch going on right now though.
    Not the kinda guy to go out so late at night though, even though my brother has to deal with everyone getting the 3DS right now. [​IMG]

    I pre-ordered my through Sears. I also used "Mypoints.com" ordered through their link that way I got 5 points per dollar spent and I was also able to use my Kmart/Sears rewards card and got points on it too. It will be delivered to my doorstep.

    Pre-Ordered. Best Buy had a promotion, that if you pre-ordered it, you will get 1600 Points Bonus (20$ Gift card equivalent). Since I was gonna buy it anyways, I pre-ordered it to get the bonus.


    Gonna be there first thing Sunday morning to pick it up!! Anyone else here from Toronto? I'm hitting the Scarborough Town Center Best Buy.

    I'd rather wait for the price to go down.

    so did you get a refund on your pre-order or had you not put down a pre-order?

    If you pre-order, don't they set aside x many of units for preorders, so you're guaranteed to get one?
