This is the first time in my life I'm not getting a Nintendo console at launch. =(


It's not that I'm against the 3DS, it's just that 3D isn't that big of a deal to me, and there aren't enough big games coming out in the launch window.

Will I get a 3DS? Hell yes, it's a Nintendo console, it will have a dozen or more Nintendo games I MUST play, at the very least. That's not even counting Third Parties.


But Will I get it right away? No. Probably not until this coming November to see if there's a good Holiday deal.

Same here. I think that I'll wait until around Christmas to buy it. Bundles should be available, and the game library will be expanded by that point. Then again, I've never gotten a console right after launch. Let's see here...

GBA SP: 9 months after launch (Christmas, 2002)

Nintendo DS: 11 months after launch (Christmas, 2005)

Wii: 25 months after launch (Christmas, 2008)

So, I'll probably pick the 3DS up about 9 months after launch. And I seem to pick up a new console/handheld about every three years or so (2002, 2005, 2008, 2011?), So that'd be in line, too.
