So now I am wondering with the ones who gave up on the 3DS and traded it in how are they going to react to the 20 free games announcement.

Price cut. Hahahahaha, I got $165($204 with 2 games) for my trade-in at GS last week. I'm so glad I got rid of that thing while it's free falling. I'll pick one up here in 2 years when its only $99, if the 3rd party games get any better, but I'm not holding my breath. I've played all the GBA and NES games to death and I don't need all of them, other then a few favs. I once was a Nintendo guy, but they boched this one big time, Bring on the PS Vita.

Careful now- else you'll be feeling the same way about PSVita when you get it at launch :3

Don't repeat mistakes twice because hype and high expectations botched people's thoughts on 3DS after they got it.

Do eeet!

@Mandoble
Nah. Never heard of such a claim- I've been following the 3DS very very very closely ever since it was announced and have heard nothing of that claim. Provide a credible link, and I'll change my stance.

I'm freaking excited for this deal. I have never got Metroid Fusion and to be playing such a game and getting it for Free, this is spectacular. And some of those NES games I don't own. I have Ice Climber only in eReader form. And I had Super Mario Bros. as a GBA NES Classic- so, I'll be reliving the time when I had that great game in handheld. Seriously, I thought I was dreaming, because I admit- I never thought Nintendo would actually do this, only hoping they would give us early adopters something had they done the price cut which I saw coming but not this soon.

It's great to be a 3DS owner and still have faith in the system regardless of what others think :3

That's a bit misleading...I for one am happy about this deal and been very happy about my 3DS preorder.

Saving $50 assumes the user would have bought every one of these items in the first place...I am happy to be getting these, but chances are I would have bought very few of these in the first place.

@TheBlackDragon, I understand that. For one, I own a PSP and a PS3, and love them. I just think that Mandoble is trying to criticise the 3DS for unecessary reasons, and then claiming Vita has superiorites without valid evidence.

Hate these stupid post's about how people think 3DS has failed?

I love my 3DS it possible my most favourite handheld i have ever bought.

I even prefer it over my consoles just because it does sumthing different over the norm!

All gaming console's go through ruff patch when they are starting out.

its waiting for bigger naming games to grace the system that sum find hard to swallow.

But true nintendo fan's wouldnt give up so easily knowning nintendo always starts off slow but always delivers in end.

As soon as they start bring out bigger naming games like - mario kart 7, super mario, metal gear soild etc..

people will start takin notice and seening that 3DS is not just a gimick but serious piece of hardware and will want to buy one.

And am sure price drop will help with that!!

Clearly cant be much of nintendo fan giving up so easily on them.
And so early on in systems lifespan.

If we knew how small we were are problems wouldn't seem so BIG!

Hehe, some people will regret their decission to sell their 3DS and the announcement of 20 free games. Like we said beforeL We need to wait for better titles. If you'd waited for this, then you wouldn't regret yourself for selling the device. Simply givin' up on something which isn't really a problem that big. Usually, you don't give up (on) the things you love, do you? Then why should you do now?

See what happens when you just give up?
Nintendo comes along and decides to give away 20 free games.
Nobody likes a quitter.

What's happened to gamers these days? Bunch of whiners and bellyaching about nothing.
Don't like 3DS? Sell the damn thing and move on.
And..... I'm spent.

No kidding hey? Back in the Nes and SNES days NOBODY was whining, everybody seemed insanely excited and bug eyed whenever they'd pop in an Nes game and the like....Everybody was just so much more positive. Nowadays too many of these current gen tweenies are spoiled with technology and love to bitch and complain. The only thing I'm still fuming about is the weak low volume when using headphones for the 3DS.lol Everything else I'm absolutely dandy with! Same deal with the Wii hehe.

People were also much younger and less experienced. Now we're all adults and we know better than to take all the crap that's being thrown at us.

the people who were even older during that time never complained either. But this was also after the Atari crash and the NES felt like the greatest thing ever. i guess there weren't really any expectations, there was no internet during the time either, you picked out a game and hoped for the best. Unless you had Nintendo Power of course muhaha.

But now that the internet is kicking, people just love to hate and this and that. the negativity and whinyness is a bit too much at times, try skimming through the talk back section in IGN articles, especially nintendo related. Like Ryno said it's like a stinky high school locker room, with extra stinkyness.

As for the 3DS, what 'crap' is being thrown at us? Ya the price tag was a wee' bit expensive, the launch could of been better along with the eShop making a launch debut, but there is great stuff on the horizon. Nintendo's exclusives for this year, 20 free games for early adopters, the GB/GBC VC and 3D nintendo classics being released, i have nothing but great things from now on to talk about regarding the 3DS.....Except for the damn low volume for the headphone jack....here i go again.lol

The crap:

  • region locking
  • games with non-erasable saves
  • limited release VCH games
  • questionable build quality
  • an extremely limited retail and downloadable library
  • the inability to transfer VC games from Wii to 3DS
  • limited transferral of DSiWare from DSi to 3DS
  • no promises of transferring DSiWare/VCH from 3DS to 3DS successor

I see plenty of things to complain about.
