the november release rumor is and does seem much more likely/believable

im expecting a worldwide release for the 3ds if not very close days or weeks appart just like the wii and ds

SpoonyRedMage2958d ago

It won't be April because Nintendo already said it will be released by March

@SpoonyRedMage, EXACTLY.

And lets not forget their Full Year Estimate included a particular number of DS PLUS 3DS sales, meaning if the DS isn't going to get the numbers the 3DS is going to have to release with enough time.

Ofcourse were really only talking one retailer here.

you guys got to give up on getting it this winter. its not going to happen do you really think nintendo will give us like 2 months notice?.

ozstar2958d ago

Yes, and what do you mean 2 months notice? E3 to Christmas = 6 months. The only thing we don't know is price.

monkeys2958d ago

Yeah we know the 3ds is real thats not what i am saying. They are not going to give us the release date 2 months away. its way to soon . I love the 3ds as much as any fan. But i am being realistic .

I don't see why it can't launch in November Didnt they announce the Wii Gcn and Ds release dates In september? and they all launched in November.
