    There’s a 3DS-centric press conference being held on September 13th and Nintendo has launched the official website for it, which can be found here. The website mentions Ustream too, so it seems like there’ll be a live stream for us to watch. The stream will be in Japanese, but at least we can enjoy the visual side of things.

    Update: The exact time for the conference is 12:00pm on September 13th. This is in Japan though, so make sure you account for the time zone difference.[/p]

    Damn, I'll be at school when that conference is live...
    I hope they announce something actually important. Maybe that Mii Plaza update details, new games, specific release dates and things like that...

    Edit: Oh, I forgot about demos. I hope they announce free demos... the ones that Reggie promised us.

    Here's hoping that they're not dropping support for the 3DS.

    Your source... It's going to cause some fuss.

    Anyway, I won't expect anything too 'big'.

    I think that they are just going to announce a lot of new games for the 3ds.. I hope its not a new hardware revision since that will be blow to their nintendo ambassador campaign. If the rumors are true that ninty is working to get a 2nd analog stick for the 3ds, I think it will be just like the suction analog stick for the ipad, and it will be placed on the lower right area of the touch screen. Announcing a new 3ds hardware redesign will be detrimental to their pr campaign at this point. I for one have not yet gotten over the fact that i bought a 3ds worth 250 usd then after a few months it is 170 usd. The ambassador program soften the blow but it still sucks, they just gave you 20 games, titles where you could play on an emulator.

    Maybe Nintendo will finally reduce the prices on their overpriced Wii/3DS shop

    NOT! they are greedy they wont ever do it..... but at least I can dream

    PS I seriously think 5 bucks for a NES game is ridiculous and the GB prices are bleh they should be 1 dollar

    Indeed the prices should be a lot lower. The tech and programming was done ages ago and honestly isn't even close to something that could cost as much as they cost now. I do have to admit that there are good games in there and they are nice to play, but honestly..

    Sorry,but no. These games(nes and gameboy) are good quality games.

    Saying they should be a dollar. Is like saying Mario and such, have the same quality as iphone games
    like angry birds, which is pretty wrong and sad really.

    Actually, a "big" announcements of new unrevealed games would be nice.

    Honestly, these games came out a while ago and already all turned a profit. They shouldn't be worth any more than a few bucks.

    I wouldn't say they're not quality games, but I'm trying to say that they are quite old and outdated to be cashed in with highish prices. It's great for people who haven't even heard of them, but cmon.. Could they at least make real packages with a few good games in total instead of 5€.. All original Mario series for NES, all TMNT series for NES, etc.. Not that hard to imagine that people would get more out of that :3


    -Qtis

    ps. I also happen to own quite a few NES games from back in the 90's but still I wouldn't want people paying top dollar for games that are quite old platformers. Good platformers, but still [​IMG]

    I'm pretty fine with the prices as-is. It's not like they just pack it with an emulator and ship it; there's quite a bit of testing and debugging they have to do first, I'd assume. For example, if I download a random game off of the internet and load it up in a third-party emulator, not only is that a little complicated to set up (relative to a VC game), but I have to worry about the emulator options, where I'm getting the ROM from, and then the ROM, if it even works, will probably have some glitches along the way that arise from it not being on it's original hardware. VC games, however, are tested to make sure that they work well and the emulation is generally much more accurate than otherwise. I'd be willing to support that.

    I think it will be interesting. I don't know what to expect. I'm not sure if I want there to be a re-designed 3DS yet. However, if it's a 3DS XL, I know I would be trading up. I eagerly traded in my DSi for a DSi XL and I have never looked back. I guess we have plenty of time for speculation.

    Not expecting much. Would be funny to see a 3DS Lite.
