    Didn't expect them to drop the price so low to push units, though I knew a price drop would be coming. And as I said when the launch titles were announced, having a shitty lineup to start with was really going to hurt them. Not to mention that their biggest launch so far is a game that was originally released over 10 years ago.

    Wicked's owl would be funnier if it said 'Si'...

    I had a long go on a 3DS pre-release and as said in here I don't use the DS I impulsively bought as it is, I'd love to play Zelda on the move but not even for $169.99 and the 3D screen only works well when you're looking at it dead on, as soon as you move it it gets all screwy...

    Not surprised, but not fussed.

    I'll probably buy one around Christmas, or I guess whenever the new Paper Mario game comes out. $250 was just way too damn much, even though OoT 3D really does look like a great remake.

    Well, I think I'll have to consider getting one now. OoT would be excellent to play again. Just wish I could find my DS so I could get my copy of Chrono Trigger back...

    I'm gonna get one of these eventually, mainly for playing Megaman Legends 3 which is supposed to come out on it.

    I'll find other games too, I'm sure, but this is my reason for getting one AT THE MOMENT.

    im tempted, as theres some awesome games coming out for it such as the 999 sequel, Professor Layton vs Phoenix Wright (omgomgz) and new castlevania isnt there?? But then again, Im broke and probably shouldnt play much more games..

    My DS has gotten a ton of use though, I still play it like 5 hours a week minimum, recently running thru old NES games..

    As far as the "3D" crap, i have no interest in that. its solely 100% for certain games Id want it. 3D is such a lame fad
