if you failed to see that in my post then you probably deserve to live below the poverty line, people are not poor, they just have poor money management

yes but i saved up that money because that was something i wanted to do and i planned it all out but i wouldnt have dumped that money into my car if something were to go south(like my daily driver breaking down, or if i got sick and had to pay hospital bills, ect.)

this is the point im trying to make, kids who dont know the value of a dollar will have a lot to learn later on in life, it just drives me crazy when children go around saying $150 is cheap acting like money grows on trees because they never have had to manage their own finances before, or have never had to pay bills before

well for starters i never said the 3ds will kill pokemon, i just said in my honest opinion, the new pokemon games dont look all that great, will that stop everyone from buying it? no, will that stop some people from buying it? yes....

same thing with the whole pokemon moving to 3ds, will it stop some people from buying it? yes, will it stop everyone? nope, there are going to be people who will buy their kids games because they want them and they just want to make their kid happy(which i can understand)

i personally dont have high hopes for the game, but then again that is just my opinion(all posted in my original response)

I wasn't trying to look "cool", I was quoting an example of frivolity that you provided me. And if you believe that people aren't poor for reasons other than poor money management, you are seriously deluded. I'm sorry my father didn't foresee he was going to die in an accident and make sure the company he had just started working for would ensure that his insurance kick in a week earlier, that was really poor management on the part of my family.

i believe 3ds capture can let you do it but it costs like $400 to install iirc

cool story bro

i say people cant manage money well because look at america, the average cell phone bill here is $100, everyone has a smartphone, and i have seen people who say they are always broke and poor yet they can spend $150+/month on 2 cell phones

if you actually broke down what you make and what you spend, you will realize there are places that can be saved and there are alot of unnecessary spending

There's really no point in arguing over this over the internet, especially since I don't think you really... understand.

I think if you actually got to live the lives of people who live in poverty, you will see that you are... not well informed. There are people that have no money to manage.

Or maybe you're just referring to people who do have the money, but claim they don't... as in, you weren't actually referring to poverty, but to middle-class (and above) people with bad spending habits. And my apologies if such is the case.

Otherwise, you can think whatever you want. After all, who am I to tell you what to believe?

I don't think it will be an issue. I'm a prime example that it won't affect sales. I don't have a terrible amount of extra money lying around, I'm a university student who needs to pay for classes and living expenses, but after X and Y were announced on 3DS, I did some creative workarounds like trading in my dsi xl for credit and putting it towards a 3DS. the people complaining about this should have been taking advantage of the 3 week long boxing "week" sales for stores like gamestop, future shop and best buy and bought 3DSes for cheaper or traded in their old games/DSes for more trade value instead of whining.

Bought my 3DS because of Zelda remake, as well as because I know how Nintendoworks. I got mine when it was $250. The new Pokemon games are just icing on the cake for me. As a store clerk, I have seen people start buying 3DS' because of the new games' announcement, so there are people buying 3DS' just because of the new Pokemon games. A lot of them just bought DSi's last Christmas too.

And, I've no one nearby to trade with.

I actually considering to buy 3DS way before Pokemon X and Y are announced, but the reason I want to buy 3DS is because I know that main Pokemon games sooner or later will be in 3DS.

I got it when the price had dropped to $170 and the Red version was released. I knew there would be great games coming out for it (including Pokemon).

I think I had StarFox and LoZ: Ocarina of Time 3DS as my first games on it.
What is this, some sort of basketball manga?

I already got my 3DS for Christmas last year, way before X & Y's announcement.

I do plan to make them be the first 3DS games I play though.

Perhaps. I've lasted THIS long (2-3 years) without a DS lite after it was killed by me..woops. Damn water !
Now my friend gave me a original Nintendo DS which I can play White and White 2 !
I don't want to spend on a 3DS just to leave it after I complete Pokemon Y, however if they continue to release Pokemon games for the 3DS then it may be worth the investment.

I've already got a Nintendo 3DS, and nope... since I've had the 3DS much longer than the announcement of Pokémon X and Y, the main reason I got a Nintendo 3DS is because of the hardware itself and the new games, even if there wasn't many at launch day. ;)

I think this will skyrocket the 3Ds's sales of these games. Pokemon X and Y are talked about with just about EVERY serious Pokemon fan, myself included. I have a buddy who knew about it WEEKS before me. When i looked these games up, i was so excited. I own a 3DS, so that makes me even MORE excited. so yeah, i think serious Pokemon fans will flock to buy a 3DS, even IF it is pre-owned. Especially after that AWESOME trailer. swinging on ropes? = AMAZING!
95% of all Pokémon hacks are of the 3rd Generation, majority of them being FireRed.
If you believe that the 2nd generation should be hacked more often,

Well personally, I'm buying a 3DS entirely so I can play X&Y on it. That might be poor money management on my part but as a very casual gamer (when it comes to the DS it's really just the Pokémon games and the occasional Mario game), I find spending ~€170 to be entirely worth the amount of enjoyment I'll get. Maybe I'm a frivolous spender and the public in general won't find X&Y worth quite as much money as I do, but to echo pretty much everyone in here, I think not only will being 3DS-exclusive not harm X&Y, X&Y being 3DS-exclusive will hugely help the 3DS.

lmao exactly the same for me in terms of being casual and mario :x (except I've already brought the 3DS and I got it on a sale so it was for $120). I agree in that I think a lot others are going to follow that, and why wouldn't they (that is retorical)? A new system shouldn't keep them away from a new generation. :3;

...and it probably won't. If it hasn't done so in the past, I don't see why moving up to the 3DS will deter those away from a new generation now.

Unless they're truly god awful and no one wants to have anything to do with them. Then.... <sadface>

Yeah you may buy more games for it later down the line, but in the end your spending how ever much for a new console and new game(s) instead of just the new game.
Well thts how it was for me tho. bought a gbc to play crystal, bought a gba to play sapphire , bought a ds to play diamond. I do have bought other games too for the platforms but only 2-3.(zelda /star wars ie)

Pokemon X and Y will be successful. Whether or not the "online" options will actually be good this time...I dunno.
