I was mentally prepared to pay 300 bucks for it. Turned out even better and not so far away either!

Stupid that this is coming out on a Sunday - means that I can't pick it up at Amazon and will have to preorder it at a brick and mortar store.  And pay stupid Illinois taxes.  Maybe I'll drive to Wisconsin to buy it.

Well, I think I'll pass on it till the 3DSLite. Plus I'm not interested in the launch line-up (ziliionz of ports, only thing that interests me are Time Travelers and Level-5 RPGs).

I'll wait AT LEAST until Christmas time. Might be a good time to see if it's worth getting within that first year or just waiting on the updated model.

Understandable. I'm just getting it from the getgo because I'm still a nintendo loyalist, and even with new, better models coming. It will still be a while, and would like one nao.

I think we're going to have to start paying taxes on innernette shits anyway.

I don't see why there would be a "Lite" version since they've already made a DS Lite and the 3DS looks very much like it. It's not like it's the bulky DS they made the first time.

Where do you live that has a 20% sales tax?

Does anyone know if Time Travelers is even being released in the West?  It's about the only launch game that interests me, but I fear it will be Japan-only.

Well, think about this... has any Nintendo DS update really grabbed you SINCE the DSLite? They gimped the DSi by removing the GBA slot, and the DSi XL is just a larger/heavier version, which some don't want. The DSLite was so definitive because the first design of the DS wasn't all that great. Then they happened on the DSLite body style, which they found really worked. The 3DS will have the DSLite body style from the start. I imagine they'll find other ways of updating it, but I doubt it will be the big definitive jump that the DSLite was, and it probably won't be so soon after launch. Mostly, I just see internal memory upgrades, but since this comes with an SD slot, who cares?

All of you waiting for the 2nd generation are just not that interested in the system in the first place, which is fine. But don't expect an update to change your opinion drastically, I doubt that will happen in this case.
