Just gonna say this - it's already cheap. Some say it's being made at a loss.

It is a lot cheaper now, indeed, but people will still have to pay for it. So who knows.

I've already owned a 3DS before, and had sold it because of the lacking amount of games out for it that interested me.

As much as I want to get these new games, I can't justify getting a new 3DS just for these. Will just have to wait and see if the prices go down lower than they are now for the 3DS.

I think once enough people see the advertising and everything of these games, they'll easily get a 3DS for it. Not many might have them now, but Pokemon fans certainly don't like missing out on things and I don't think there will be a shortage on people getting the 3DS to get the games.

I think the games will give a reason to many to buy a 3DS now. And as Jake said, they're not that expensive now anyway.

This announcement will certainly put the 3DS in the spot light, so maybe more companies will start making content for it, since one of the biggest out there has put their game on it.

I've held onto my 3DS since I bought it on the first day of release, and I've been happy with it since.

Of course these games are going to boost 3DS sales, not that they're at a low, anyway.

Also, the 3DS has a great library of games, if you're a new buyer, there are amazing upcoming games like Animal Crossing and Luigi's Mansion coming up, and there's also a great existing Library with titles such as Kid Icarus, and Mario Kart! :>

Pokemon is the second most popular gaming franchise in the world, so this could help 3DS sales a lot.

And I'm so glad I got a 3DS for Christmas cos I didn't want to feel left out, but I guess for some fans it means the final nail in the coffin.

So they should not have made GBA games because the GB/C had a bigger owner percentage, DS because GBA had a bigger owner percentage? No offense, but that argument has really gotten stale. By the time these games come out, the 3DS will be ~ 5 months shy of 3 years old, that's plenty of time to scrap up enough cash for one(especially with the early price drop it got for waiters and the rumored slight price drop popping up soon, if it hasn't already; It's not like it doesn't have bc either so you can continue playing your ds games.

But I don't see why they don't just go to the Wii and put the games on that. It will make the graphics a lot better for one and give the game something else.

Alright they want it being a handheld but theres only so much a handheld console can be evolved before it reaches it maximum.

Hey, I might not agree with the OP, I am just sparking discussion! :P

The games industry has to move forward and the gamers have to follow, so some people could just see this as a 'normal' thing to happen. But with the lack of DS games, is it fair?

Wtf? Well I guess I'm not getting it then. There's no way that I'm buying a 3DS with which I seriously don't want to do anything just for one game. Can't have an R4 on it either so yeah no. I'll wait for the internet to find a way lol.

You should read up on why they feel like a handheld is best fit for the main games of the series. Also, why release for the Wii when that's already gotten the boot for some time now? If you mean the Wii U, I repeat that first sentence I said. It's not like the Wii U isn't going to get some amazing spin-offs; spin offs are always all over the place.

Lack of DS games in what respect? Pokemon-wise, the DS has an overabundance of it; a 3DS main title announcement has been overdue really. That wasn't meant for a personal attack either, just a response to that saying in general.

If you cannot afford the small amount for a 3DS in the next 10 months, then you need to take a good long look at what you're doing wrong with your life.

All consoles die, and there has been enough "transition time" since the 3DS was released- it's time to move on and not let the huge DS limitations to force the programmers to make worse games than they could. Otherwise, we might as well still be playing our NESes.
I agreed too. DS is already dying. There is no point prolong their life, let them rest and Baton Pass it to 3DS.

I'm more excited for the full 3D models! Anybody remember Pokemon coliseum and Pokemon XD? It's something I've wanted on handheld for a long long time and I finally have! I am really excited for this new change.

The moment I saw the 3DS at E3 2010, I started saving up and bought it on launch. And I have never regretted the decision.

There may have used to be a deficit of good games, but they've got plenty of good games now. I own Mario Kart, OoT 3D, Kingdom Hearts DDD, Scribblenauts Unlimited, and Super Mario 3D Land. Plus there are great games already out that I've been wanting to get such as Paper Mario, New Super Mario Bros. 2, Kid Icarus: Uprising and Animal Crossing. Plus there are more games coming out for it that are top class. Personally I'm really looking forward to Fire Emblem: Awakening in February, and now I have a Pokemon game to look forward to later down the road. Plus if you don't like much of the games for it you could always check out the Nintendo eShop and get really good downloadable games for cheap, and since the eShop carried over all the games from the DSi, the library is quite expansive and the quality is good as well.

With the price drop, I feel that the 3DS is worth buying now more than ever. And considering that the DSi XL was once more costly than the 3DS is I don't see why families that could afford one of the DS models when it was new can't afford this with a trade-in or from just buying one used. Pokemon is far from dying, and X and Y can only serve to further boost the sales of the 3DS.

P.S. can't wait for the inevitable "Pokemon Z" announcement. XD

Until XY gets released, many games will come out. At least there are lot I'm looking forward to. I already have at least 10 games I'm looking forward too, and it's just the beginning of 3DS. But Pokemon is the main reason for me to get one, so I hoped for a later release. I'm also happy it comes out this year. Too bad the prices are terrible in my country.

Thus, while maybe coming out too soon for the west (double edged sword for international release?), it will certainly boost the sales of 3DS. The only bad thing is that those who don't buy the game soon enough, will miss out some wifi gifts.

There will probably be a Christmas promotion where you can get an exclusive 3DS with Pokemon X or Y pre-installed for a reasonable price.

I was thinking this, which would be a nice offer. I would certainly wait for that offer if I were to, finally, decide to get it again.

Ah, well, my main reason why I bought 3DS in the first place is because of Pokemon as well. I thought many people should prepare for this when 3DS released. With many prices cut it receive till now, I guess 3DS shouldn't be the main reason why the audience got limited.

Wait, shouldn't it be XY2? Or maybe We got Z then XYZ2?
Forget what I said

Can you come up with a really good reason as to why they would come out with another DSi title?

Erk, you may be right. Everyone was expecting a Pokemon Gray announcement but Nintendo totally pulled a curveball on that one.

The Fire and Water starters look like ****. Mostly the Water one. The male character looks a lot like Black.

And the screenshots of the overworld... I dunno what to think. TOO MANY CONFLICTING FEELINGS! AND WHERE'S RUBY/SAPPHIRE REMAKES?

A damned curveball that is. Not a bad detraction from the old formula but not really good one considering the storyline are worse from BW.
Whether or not they take the old route and or continue BW2 likes, I'll hope they really their best with the game without taking much past feature only to add it into later version. That's disgusting.

Er....I guess we will have our Gen 3 remake this time right? RIGHT?
