Well, it's $249 in the US, and for me it's
E: I'm getting it day one since -
1. I want some of the Launch Window (as opposed to Launch day) games
2. No way this price is going to change within the Launch Window period
3. This way I make sure that when I want it a month or so later it is not going to be sold out.
4. In the mean time I have the Augmented Reality games, the demos and the 3d camera to play with, not to mention 999 and probably Pokemon B/W that I am going to buy for this (I don't have a DS).
Worst case scenario - it is not sold out and it is possible to get it somewhere for $239 between end March and June. Even in that case what have I gained by not making it day 1? Nothing much except delay starting to play with it.
huge ditto. only launch game which i found out is not a luanch game in america i want is professor layton
so i'll be waiting for the launch window games to come out.
and same reasoning, by the time these games come out there is ZERO chance price will be lower, and BIG chance that finding a 3DS may be hard if not impossible.
I'm sure for a while i'll just be playign my ds games on this, while looking at demoes and stuf and showing others demoes. i am 100% sure that i will not regret this purchase, and like i said by the time there is amazing games and enough of them to make some think a purchase is warranted i guarantee you that hte price is still $250
