    Not sure if I should get one but I think I really want one. I've mostly played only pokemon games on my past DS Lite device that I owned. What do you guys think? I'd just have to sell my ipod touch first to get some cash for it.

    Wait a bit because they would have to drop their price for sure since of the Vita being the same price.

    I'm doing the same. Gonna wait for the price drop then snag it.

    Legend of Zelda OoT is coming out next weekend and there are a few games that are being released this month.
    If you just played pokemon and didnt like any other DS games, then you should go to a gamestation and see a few of the 3DS games for yourself [​IMG].

    With the Vita at $249...

    Wait. It's worth waiting. Patience is virtue

    By then the OoT may even be easily available and no SOLD OUT issues [​IMG]

    get one.

    just take note that good games won't come out till july(zelda)[june 31 to be exact{or was that 30?}] and august(mario and stuffs).

    they'll probably lower the 3ds' price, so.. maybe... wait for a price drop.

    you could also get the zelda bundle or the flare red 3ds if you want to. it just isn't released yet.

    Based on your writeout, the 3DS will fit you actually.

    Get one then, if you're itching to. Pokemon 3DS will come, but not now.

    I think the best for you to do is wait till you have enough money and you can keep your ipod touch and by the time you have the money(which could be maked easier by nintendo by dropping the price) there is a change of a pokemon game coming out.
    win-win situation!

    Not worth getting right now. Wait until fall when there are more games out.

    Yes get one, but wait a few months for the price to drop. There are no good games out now anyway so you're not missing out on much.

    I'm with this guy.

    Except as of some people it doesn't necessarily mean a price drop or if it does price drop, it not necessarily because of other devices.
