Nintendo's 3DS will be released a full two months in advance of Christmas this year, CVG can reveal.
finna hit the block and move a few pounds so i can get a 3DS in time for October! Wonder what the price tag shall be?
$200 or less I'd say. Depending on how much they cram in it they may go for a slightly higher price than they introduced the DS at. I can't wait!:D
So it will be more expensive than the Wii?
i need a handheld, but i hate the shovelware on the wii, and the psp has a lack of dev support. :/ oh god
I wouldn't want to be Sony right now. Release a PSP phone and you'll have to compete with Apple. Release a PSP2 and you'll have to compete with Nintendo. Or they could wait, see how the market responds to the 3DS and pull a "MOVE".
I think I will have to breakdown and finally give Nintendo a sale day one. The HD consoles just don't give you a diverse genre of games namely platform games. And I'm getting the 3DS day one unless if there's really bad supply issue. The reason it warrants a day one purchase is Nintendo never drops price. In 7 years the DS lite is still $130 MSRP and the Nintendo DS launched at $160. I hate Nintendo more than Microsoft but you know what they convinced me because they offer a diverse genre of games that aren't on the HD consoles.
If the 3d screen works well, i can see the 3ds as being the cheapest way to view 3d films. Nintendo could make a killing if they had a movie rental service on a device like this
seeing as the dsi launched for 199.95 in Canada and the XL launched for 210$
Hopefully its 180$ Nintendos not known to put out a 200$ + handheld but i say 120-180 thats a nintendo like price range. i got 200 saved up just for this...
October!? And here I thought it would at least be sometime in 2011. This is great news though. Time to start savin' up again :P
wow i said i would buy 2 and i will october wow
Also confirms that we are in for all new consoles in fall 2011. We are approaching a new generation of consoles and I can't wait!
I think you are right, i think Nintendo had planned to announce this at E3, but got wind of a competitors plans to announce their handheld at the same event, so they 'announced' the 3DS to get in first Wonder if MS have something planned, i can't imagine them sitting back and doing nothing. They tried to take on apple with the zune and windows mobile 7 PSP2 is a given, i'd imagine sony will take a different approach this time, aim it ata more general audience much like nintendo did with the DS
wow my first item on xmas list cant wait for this nintendo handhelds are allways amazing.
Personally im looking forward to a PSP 2 more than the 3ds. Im sure it will be good but i just think the new PSP will be more powerful and likely solve the issues of the current psp (dual analogs please).
Possible first day purchase. If the screen is clearly visible then 1st day purchase. If however, its anything like the GBA (horribly dark/very fuzzy), then i wont buy it. So hopefully the 3d implementation doesnt ruin the picture quality.
mostly because they always come up with a better design for their hardware further down the road after the initial test run. However, it is a must buy system, in my opinion.
SuperStrokey1123 i really dont see your point ds was extreamly unpowerfull compared to psp but ds is still by far got the more better games the problem is sony are just to focus towards consoles. and i really dont think will psp 2 for while sony do not rush there products they realses them when they ready not just becuase nintendo are going first. yeah understand we all have diffrent opinons its just after buying the psp weeks after launch ever since i have just felt ripped of its like sony have just giving up on. and think going to buy a psp 2 then they will show somthing worth while.
Well you are welcome to say that the DS had better games but i personally perferred the PSP ones but thats just personal opinion so no issue there. As for the power aspect i just think it will allow for some really good games is all. It will offer more options (of course i could be totally out to lunch here as the 3d could be epic for sure). For example i really enjoy shooters, a nice and powerful psp2 with dual analogs would be fantastic. Sure the 3ds will likely be awesome, just im personally looking forward to the PSP2 more is all. Cheers!
I'm going to have to preorder!
Sweet perfect timing for me to get a new 3DS. Just glad I didn't get the XL or XLL. can't wait for the U.S. release date.
So this is going to be Nintendo's next-gen handheld? I figured it would release in 2011, oh well, still gonna buy it xD.
Day 1. :) Sunday Oct. 10, 2010: 10/10/10. :)
Il wait for the 3DSi XL
well i just got a ds lite, and i dont think i will pick another handheld in a few years
let's take bets to see how quickly it'll be hacked :p
lol no it wont.....e3 bi*ches.
That would be a day after my birthday. I'm sure it'll be over 200$ though.
Yup. No doubt over $200. I know my wife as been wanting one for awhile so I think I will pick one of these 3D versions up for her and surprise her....I may even get one for myself.
Wouldn't surprise me if it got pushed back a few months, but I see why they want to release it, Natal and Move will be out around that time too, and they need to compete with them. I doubt they rushed it like some said, as they probably worked on it far before they announced it. I'll get it if I have the money since I need a new DS or ask for it for christmas, getting this for pokemon black/white since DS games are backwards compatible.
I really think Nintendo should release Pokemon Black/White on the 3DS, because remember Super Paper Mario? It was announced for the GameCube, but released on the Wii instead.
they'll release Pokemon black/White for both handhelds.
possible with what they did with many games with the wii and GCN such as twilight princess, I know they did a few others but I can't think of the titles atm
I just thought Have nintendo ever done worldwide launch ? becuase i could see it being october for japan then jan-feb for amercia and march for the uk
I just got a dsi today Hahahaha..........i should have waited ?
i dont understand this. they JUST released the XL. why come out with ANOTHER system barely a year after? last time i checked, people didn't have the money to go out and spend $80 + on the same hand held system every six months for just an extra thing. how many more DS's are there going to be??
Well, that's their choice and problem Nintendo can't help it if people are impulsive and unable to resist what is, essentially, a bigger DSi. Especially if there is a 3DS down the road. Whatever happened to "not buying it", when you ran out of spare cash?
It's their next handheld so it's not another DS and it's definitely not the same thing. The XL was obviously aimed at the periphery market as well, not meant for people to upgrade.
My guess the graphics will still look lower then PS1 still.
