    Do you think you're going to buy the 3DS? It'll probably be between $200 and $300, but the way I see it, this thing's gonna give PSP a hard time. You could probably buy an Xbox with the same amount of money, though.

    Well, I don't think it will be THAT much, maybe a bit under $200 but not between $200 and $300. And yes, I will be getting it.

    Too late. I just got back from preordering mine, so that answers your question. As soon as they reveal the full price, I will pay it off that day.

    Again, in response to your question :D

    I thought the DS was already giving the PSP a hard time :p .


    Anyway, the 3DS is a must have for me. As soon as I have the money, I'll be preordering it.

    I was sold the moment they announced what platform Megaman Legends 3 was going to be on.

    3DS, does it really need this many threads?

    Regardless, this is a day one for me. Hope it has a few good strong launch titles.

    I thought I had started a Thread on it, but I did a search and nada. Then I got lazy and just posted on this one.

    Three words....

    Mega Man Legends 3.

    That alone is enough to make me go out and buy this...perhaps even on day 1!

    oh...and Layton VS Phoenix Wright too.

    I meant something more like, "it's going to give PSP the finger then kick it in the McNuggets."

    Does a thread have to turn into this? Or can it just be praise for the 3DS. I will own this and the PSP2, and the PSP1, and I'll more than likely enjoy them for two very different reasons.

    If not, I'll just wait until the thread deals with conversation about the 3DS and not about how much better it is than the PSP, considering that up until this point, I have had no desire to own a DS system. Ocarina of Time and Starfox portable are two strong contenders for reasons why I spent 50 bucks on a ticket to get in line today.

    I'm pretty sure I'll get one, as long as the price isn't outrageous.

    Yes, supposedly they will be able to fit around 8 to 16 gb on a cartidge. You can imagine how much content they will be able to put on these games. It looks to have a good starting line up of games and more support from outside companies than the psp. Plus everyone wants to see how the 3d works.

    I have about 2 years' worth of DS games to get through (not including the DS games yet to come out in 2011). After I finish those... then it'll be worth it.

    Yup. Same here. I've never, NEVER been the type to buy a system just for one game, but Megaman Legends 3 is it. Not even Metal Gear Solid 4 could break my will and get me to buy a PS3. Not nothing. But MML3. . . damn, I've waited over 10 years for this game.

    Let's just say I'm not into portables, but I will be getting this. It's lineup of games combined with tech that genuinely intrigues me has won me over. It would have to be over $400 or more to flatout say no and wait for it to go down.

    I'll only know after I road test one, probably in a TRU after elbowing off some small child.
