It'd take me probably 2 weeks, if I asked for extra shifts at work.

I don't really care to get a 3DS. My DS has worked since 2003, or whenever I got it and I have no need to replace it. :)

(It also stayed on for 36 hours w/o going red :x)

Oooh Kura where are you going in Europe? Also what do you mean region locked - I can't play USA roms? ;__;
Horsham England if everything pans out well. And yeah that's what region-locked is. If I have an American 3DS and I buy a game in a European Games store.. it wont work on my handheld.

Dumb or what, huh? .. At least my DSLite isn't region-locked.


I was thinking of holding out because nintendo always seems to make a better "second edition" of their handhelds.. I didn't know if I should wait for that one.. :/ But if they make it worse like they did with the PS3 not being able to play PS2 games then.. I'd have hated to have missed my chance. I know the 3DS is terrible for DS games because it upscales them.. but like.. I don't want to be like "Damn I can't buy the north american console from the uk" or "they stopped this feature on them!" or whatever..
:/ Siighhh..

Truality: They were crazy expensive here. But they had a huge price-drop: $169.99

I got a little bit of allowance, so that's the reason. Plus, I only get a huge amount of money whenever my aunt comes and visits.

idek why i bought dat DSi anymore. ;;

Getting a 3DS is within my budget, I think. The possible R/S/E remakes might convince me enough.

Lucky you, and that's another disadvantage of having 3DS, if you don't have much money you wouldn't be able to afford games for it! D: .. So still ..

Really?

It costs around 250 euros over here. I prefer saving these money for bills. Oh look, the internet bill came by today; 50 euros.
That's strange... Last time I checked, wasn't there already a global price drop? If it still costs €250, well... something seems to be very wrong.

Waitwaitwaitwaitwait... the 3DS is region-locked? Dammit! There goes my sneaky plan to buy a 3DS for cheap when I go to the US next year. Now I'll just have to wait until it goes down in price for real. Stupid, expensive UK...

I still enjoy my Ice Blue DS Lite and I play Pokemon Black on it!

I don't really want a 3DS anytime soon.

3DS has been pretty useless to me and I got it a few months after its release. Hasn't been any 3DS games I've wanted really, though I was able to access wifi with it for Pokemon Battles and such. I eagerly await the release of 3D mario kart, to give me a reason to wipe the dust of my 3DS ¬_______¬

I was gonna buy one now, but I'm gonna wait a while, at least until there's more games out that I'm interested in playing. It's all good though, I've got my DS games to keep me plenty busy until then. :D

I brought a 3DS on launch day and I'm pretty happy with it. I've gotten Ocarina of Time 3D, Street Fighter and Nintendogs + Cats (which was free) and I don't regret it. Plus it's packed full of content, the eshop, ambassador program. I can't wait to get Super Mario 3D Land and Mario Kart 7. I've already preorded Skyward Sword, so I'm hoping to juice my Wii out as much as possible before the Wii U comes out.

I still have my Ds Lite and I'm probably not going to upgrade. The main reason being so I can still play old Gameboy games without actually having to break out the old SP.

That depends, I wouldn't have wanted to collect them all, it would've gotten extremely expensive.

If your a huge fan of them and if you can afford them, why not? But as for the ones who can't afford like me, guess we're unlucky! xD

I wouldn't be able to afford buying all DS models, one at a time would be fine with me.

My rear.

Many things seem to be very wrong here. 3DS prices should be the least of our worries, don't you agree?

Exactly! But your games are also crazy expensive compared to the US ones. And sometimes the censor out stuff in the UK game versions. It's so frustrating. I'm just gonna buy one here in Toronto and have my boyfriend ship me games cause we'll be shipping each other packages anyways <3 I'll just paypal him the cost of the game. Easy-peasey, though I am sure if you wanted to do it that way, you can just ebay the games with worldwide shipping. Dunno if you'd need an American credit card though..

I'm looking forward mostly to Tales of the Abyss and Phoenix Wright Vs Professor Layton. Plus I also really want Ocarina of Time remake *_*.. <3
