How many of you got a 3DS/3DS XL when Pokemon X/Y were announced.It doesnt have to precisely when they were announced.
I did get an XL a few weeks ago.Hope it will survive.

I got a 3DS not long after they were released in 2011, definitely feels like it was worth buying it back then now that Pokémon X and Y are coming out soon ;)

I got a blue 3DS XL back in late April, and it's slightly smaller in size than the DSi XL. Like most, I got mine in anticipation of the release of X and Y.

I haven't bought one yet; I'll have to see if the games are good or not. It's pretty expensive.

I got one the day they came out. A slightly weak starting line up, but there are A LOT of good games. There are Mario games, Kingdom Hearts, a Zelda game coming soon, lots of stuff on the E-shop, and it can still play DS games. Naturally I also got the special Pikachu 3DS XL. There's something in the 3DS library for everyone.

I bought a 3DS the day after launch...would have been the day of launch, but I was rather ill that day, so I had to give it a miss. I'd decided I was going to get one long before Pokemon X/Y were announced...however, the announcement of the games (as well as the wonderful "So Many Games!" promotion) did prompt me to buy my 3DS XL. Of course, I'd been looking for an excuse - I love my DSi XL; bigger screens are better, at least for me - and, if I wanted to play it without risking my mother making off with my 3DS to play her copy, I'd need a second 3DS.

I got a regular black 3DS 2 years ago on my birthday, I was a big Mario fan back then. But nowadays I can't seem to play any non-Pokemon game!

Bought a 3DS a few months ago off a friend for a nice $80.00. Bought it especially because of X&Y. Not totally fond of the red color, but I guess that's a reason they make decals lol.

I bought a 3DS XL long before X and Y were announced. And since I'm getting both X and Y, there are chances I might be buying a second 3DS to be able to trade with myself.

Ever since the 3DS came out I knew I would have to get one for the next generation of Pokémon. I was going to keep putting it off till October tbh but then Animal Crossing came out and I really wanted it so I got it earlier~ But I did get it specifically because of Pokémon. :3

I got the Black and Gold Zelda 3DS on Black Friday back in 2011. I kinda wish I waited so I could get an XL, but at least I got the Limited Edition.

WANT.

I'd love to get a 3DS XL, but I haven't the money. My DS Lite broke over a year or two ago and I've been relying on emulators since. :/

Haven't got one yet, but I'll only buy it when I feel like it. Still, $125 for a pre-used DS can be a good bargain for a console particularly if you look on Amazon. Aqua Blue looks like an interesting color that I might go for if I wanted to buy it.

I've been having my 3DS since about 2011, way before X and Y were even announced.

I bought mine back when the 3DS was first release and never bought any games since I knew there would be a Pokemon game out for it eventually.

Well, I bought a 3DS XL and happened to preorder Pokémon Y in the same trip, so there you are. Though I technically bought the machine for Animal Crossing: New Leaf...

I bought mine back in August 2011. It was not too long after the major price drop so I decided to take advantage. I also knew that a lot of great games would be released in the future and, inevitably, the 6th Gen. of Pokémon would be a 3DS exclusive.

P.S. Blue 3DS uzers rule!!1!1

I have not yet got one. I was orginally going to wait till the pokemon games came out, and see if there was any special ones, but there are a few games that I want.

(If this is showing up longer for everyone else, I do not know why and sorry.)
