I just mine today and I am VERY impressed with it. I've only played it for an hour or two, but the 3D is something I'm amazed at. The analog thumbpad is also great, FAR surpassing the PSP dinky little nub and the AR games the thing came with are a pretty cool concept I'd like to see more of. Battery life I haven't properly tested, plus I'm disappointed that the web browser and eShop aren't up yet (though Nintendo says those'll be up in May). Launch lineup is lukewarm, but so have a lot of launches for the past ten years. I would say the best game to get is by far Street Fighter IV as it uses the hardware to its fullest. All in all, a great improvement of the DS design and I can't wait for more games, like RE: Mercenaries

I like that NIntendo has taken some responsibility with kids playing too many video games. There are items in the games that you need to use a special currency that you only get by walking a certain amount of steps with the system turned off. Helps to take a break from the games (can save your eyes from 3d strain if it bothers you).

It seems that there is a problem in Ghost Recon's coding that is causing the 3DS to crash. Looks like Nintendo has already fixed it with a firmware update.
My tongue moved, a swung relaxing hinge.
I said to her, 'What will become of us?'
And as forgotten water in a well might shake
At an explosion under morning

Or a crack run up a gable,
She began to speak.
'I think our very form is bound to change.
Dogs in siege. Saurian relapses. Pismires."

- from Seamus Heaney's "Sibyl", part two of "Triptych"

Luckily it was only a handful of the systems, so no RROD syndrome.

Also, anyone else hoping someone finds some neat things to do with the AR cards? Those were a COOL tech demo if nothing else

scan the AR card and print it out on a big sheet of paper. Saw someone do this with something similar and he had a life sized maid walking around his room >_<

I know Nintendo said their rewards program will eventually have large AR cards up for sale. I really someone packs in an AR card for games to do something with them because it's a neat piece of software

I know Nintendogs uses the card, but I am hoping for pokemon to do battles like this in the future.

There is a Yugioh game in the making. I think it is only natural that they should use the ar system (Dark Magician Girl <3)

Nintendo was a fool for not advertising this aspect more. No one knows about it it seems.

This is news to me; I could have put this in the other 3DS thread since I was gathering information about it. The most I found was 3d and region lock issues.

Yeah Acen is close so the most I might get is a DSI when I trade in my ds lite but that's it. I probably won't get the 3ds til after summer maybe. I really want that SMT game badly.

Kirkland: o_o That no good!

Actually paid about 275 for PS3 so meh. If you trade in your old system you get cash off of it so it's not as much as a PS3 or a 360.

GAH I Want SMT so badly! OVERCLOCK >.<

i know there was going to be a price drop before the PSV but i was thinking 200$, 170$ seem about right, it looks like it time for me to buy it with OoT 3D.

I'm going to buy one sooner now. I almost want one today for the 20 free games but I'll wait. It just goes to show, you need a few AAA games out right away (Mario, Zelda, Kid Icarus, etc.) to be worth a darn. The lack of games, the fact I bought a DSi in December '09 only to hear a week later that 3DS was announced, and the hefty price held me away from buying one right away.

Multiple system releases will catch up (see Sega.)

$170 is pretty nice but the drop does show a deeper problem, lack of sales. For $249 I could get a XBOX 360 for that price. The handheld has only been out for 4 months and now they drop the price down to $170. And the 20 free games are cool but not 3D games. At least thrown in a free game of choice with purchase. And watch a new version will come out and it will be even bigger like that of the DS XL. I agree STVO about the lack of interest of 3D games out now. Ill wait.

With the price cut I'll probably end up picking one up with my birthday money. Early buyers of the 3DS do get the benefit of get 10 GBA and 10 (S)NES games. (I can't recall if it was NES or SNES)

It was NES games; this also pretty much confirms that there'll be a NES virtual console and possibly a GBA one (Nintendo said they don't have a GBA VC officially planned for the moment).

I'm definitely glad I got my 3DS early since now I get free stuff for it. There's no way Nintendo's selling the thing at a loss, so they have Sony in a pretty perilous position; unlike Nintendo, Sony can't afford to drop the price further.

I hope the GBA Virtual Console comes to 3DS at some point. That or at least bring out Yoshi's Island and Star Fox out to the Wii Virtual Console before they stop supporting it! :P

Really, I am very tempted to buy a Nintendo 3DS right now for that awesome 20 games deal but with my vacation coming up, I really can't blow that money right now. :(

They said 10 NES and 10 GBA games but have only listed 5 each, here's what they have so far:

NES
Super Mario Bros.
Donkey Kong Jr.
Balloon Fight
Ice Climber
The Legend of Zelda

GameBoy Advance
Yoshi’s Island: Super Mario Advance 3
Mario Kart: Super Circuit
Metroid Fusion
WarioWare Inc.: Mega Microgame$
Mario vs. Donkey Kong

I already have Super Mario Bros., Legend of Zelda, and Mario vs. Donkey Kong. With the exception of Ice Climbers (I like them in Smash Bros, but not their game, sorry) the line-up is very solid. If you guys have the money or don't have your console online yet... GET ON IT!
