I certainly don't have 250 dollars, but the free downloadables are sweet. Decisions, decisions. Should I try to somehow get one now or forget it? Suggestions? The reason I never got one is because as a handheld, this is more then the original price of a Gamecube which was 200. Too expensive for a handheld.

Also, anybody know if the 3DS shop is shared with the DSi, (As in you can get everything in the DSi shop plus more if you're on a 3DS) or are they separate entirely? Been wondering this.

I don't know if 3DS Shop has all the DS Shop titles game-wise(Flipnote Studio isn't 3DS compatible, but we're supposed to be getting an updated version) but it does have a good few DSiware titles you can buy. Actually most of it is DSiware right now.

Ah, good to know, thanks. Shame about Flip though, but hopefully will be a new one soon. I am probably going to pass on the early adopter offer, and just buy what I want on the shop on DSi then see how much migrates to the 3DS using the migrate tool. That way I'll at least have those titles on the new system if they allow migrating stuff that isn't in the new shop. Wonder what they will do for stuff that isn't able to migrate, though. Refund probably. Thinking it's an all or nothing kind of thing, where the ones that don't migrate get refunded.

I highly doubt it. Probably more like "Buy at your own risk" kind of thing.

YAY I won't blow a third of my paycheck on it now!

... Not like I'll get it anytime soon anyway, but it's a good idea before they suddenly raise the prices again.

Honestly, even though I have a 3DS, I'm totally cool with this. After all, they're giving us 20 free games, which (assuming NES games are $5 and GBA are $8 a piece) equals out to about $130 worth of free stuff. Not to mention the games we'll be getting are totally awesome, including Zelda, Mario, Mario Kart, Metroid, etc.

It's a very enticing offer regardless. I might just skip it, but if I could get it without going nearly broke I would totally do it before the 13th. The extra games totally make up the 80 difference, with a little extra.

Geez, I wish the 3DS was only $250 when it came out here. In Aussie, it was around $350 brand new. REALLY unfair if you ask me.

Yea, Nintendo has always seemed to be total dickwads to Australia. Probably because it's such an evil place where everything is built to kill you.

That's cold, Austin. I would appreciate it if you didn't insult my girlfriend's country. x3

Anyways, I'm happy the 3DS is dropping. Means I can probably afford to buy one. Granted I wouldn't get the 20 free games on the little network thing, but hell, I don't need them. xD
