I don't have a 3ds but I love competitions........feel like a loser already ;(

I might do something, though laziness may get the better of me. I'll see how I feel in a couple of days. I've never made a real video before, so I guess filming with an iPhone will have to do. You guys don't mind low quality video as long as it has the wonderful sentiment of the Nintendo 3DS, right?

Some excellent entries so far, but still a good chance of winning if you submit your video response!



JimJam707 said:

Will my video still count, because it's not down under a video response to the Nintendo UK video despite the fact that's how I uploaded it :/



Kirk said:


I was just on the verge of starting to make some YouTube videos of my own and I guess this is as good a way to start as any.

You haven't given me much time though so I might not get something made it time.

I'll certainly think about it though...

@antdickens I submitted the link to my youtube video on my channel and posted it as a video response to nintendo's 3DS Reason. Does this mean my entry is counted?



antdickens said:

Well done to everyone who has entered, we've got less than 48 hours to go now. The games are ready to be sent out!



jpxdude said:

I think I win the prize for submitting possibly the worst video lol!

Good luck all!

When you say Nintendo UK have to approve the videos, does that mean there is anything we are not allowed to include in the videos we make for this competition? And if so, do you know what these are?



Balaclavab said:

Well, I will submit it anyway, and if it's not approved, I will edit that part out.
Does my entry have to be submitted before 22nd June, or before 11.59pm on the 22nd June?



Balaclavab said:

How long does it take for Nintendo to approve the videos? Do they notify us if it can't be approved?



antdickens said:

@nintendofwbaby we will be picking the winners today along with Nintendo UK, we'll announce them (hopefully) tomorrow and send out the games on Wednesday!
