    Are you going to try 3DS before you buy it or are you just going to buy it, I would highly recommend you try it first it might save you a lot of money and heart ache

    As I won't be buying one on launch day I daresay I'll get to have a fiddle with one before I eventually do decide to purchase.

    I'm probably not getting one till Christmas (waiting on a few more games to release for it). I'll inevitably play with it in stores before getting it. I'm sure it will be great, i'm not playing it beforehand because i have doubts. But i just want to try it out for fun since i'm not getting it for a while anyways.

    Buying it before I try it, just cause it'll be that more special when I get it. It's like getting to play with a new toy for a hour, then having to wait to buy it. I'd rather not have to wait to try it out, by preordering it. The release games aren't that great, but I'll pick up a copy of Resident Evil just to tide me over until a better game is released.

    I've seen you make a lot of anti-3DS threads. Any reason why?

    I'm not going to test it out before I buy it because ... how would I? The only social interaction I've had for a little while has been dealing with customers (who don't see me as a human - can't find a link to the study, but yeah), and I doubt they'd be willing to let me play with their 3DS'.

    I won't be able to try it but I'll get it anyway around december.

    Also, I find the amount of hate you provide against the 3DS pretty annoying

    It's a Nintendo platform, I don't need to try it knowing there will be good games.

    Already preordered. I mean, it is the successor to the best and most enjoyable line of portable game systems. So, it definitely won't be "bad" or "a waste of money" (who am I quoting?). Worst-case scenario, if nothing else, it will just fall slightly lower of the bar already set for portable games.

    Believe it or not I have worked on several 3D systems in the past and the best is with glasses and the worst is the system that Nintendo are using, if the 3Ds was a 3D glasses system I would buy one simple as that

    Game Dragon has a habit of complaining about things he doesn't own
    he did that with the DSTWO, and now he's doing it with the 3DS,
    give it a few days, he'll get bored and move on to cry about the iEVO or NGP

    This depends on whether or not stores will have kiosks set-up before launch, and whether or not I can get at least an hour with one of them alone to test out my 3D endurance.
    If not, then I'll buy a 3DS at launch regardless.

    Ya depends if stores get early kiosks, then I will def take it out for a spin. Otherwise no because I have fully paid off my 3DS and will be picking it up as soon as it's released!

    Topic: Not going to another country just to see if I can see a 3D effect I'm pretty sure I won't be able to anyway.

    Definitely. I would like to see no glasses 3D for myself before I buy the 3DS. Also need to make sure I won't get a headache as well [​IMG]

    When the kiosk demos pop up at Gamestop, I'll give the 3D$ a try.
    (Then I hopefully have a job or a spare $249.99 lying around so that I can buy the black one!)
