The story is too old to be commented.

I'm going to wait for Super Mario 3D and Mario Kart 3D. They will be AWESOME!

You can't go wrong waiting. More to choose from, I say! :)

I might actually buy me a 3DS so I can play it until the Vita comes out. It has some neat games for it coming out. I haven't had a handheld since my PSP a couple years back.

3DS have some good games so far with a few great ones coming as well.

Definitely. Now that it's $169.99, everyone should grab one. :)

Doesn't Nintendo kinda have to drop the price since the PS Vita is going to be at the same price point of $250. If they both were to be the same price, alot of people would grab the Vita for its graphics, cross platform gameplay, online, party chat, etc. etc. over the 3DS. Of course, you've got your Nintendo fanatics who'll buy the 3DS anyway, but you've also got people who compare features of handhelds before they buy. That's not to say that the 3DS doesn't have any cool features (3D display, etc.), but the Vita certainly has more.

Either way, this is a smart move by Nintendo and great for people wanting to pick up a 3DS. Thank you, Nintendo. I knew there would be a price drop before the Vita showed up on store shelves.

I'm waiting for Animal Crossing, hopefully a better version will be out by then (I might cave in if Kid Icarus and Mario Kart are good though).

for 150 or less it's a maybe, and i'm a pretty big 3d enthusiast. i got a 135" 3d projector, and a fuji w3 3d pic/video camera...and learning from that glassesless 3d is more of a hassle than it's worth, but the difference with the camera is that you can always see it's products later in perfect 3d, while the 3ds visuals are in real-time. so if you move it the wrong way for a second and it messes up (not to mention pressing buttons all the time moves it around anyway).

i already played all those games

and mario kart will be the same exact thing all over again (for the 4th time)
