1. Preorder ASAP
2. Be the first to grab one at Wal-Mart
3. Desperately search for one at Toys R Us
4. Wait until the mania is over
5. Wait until there's a smaller version
6. Wait until the library develops
7. Wait until the Virtual Handheld develops.

I'll definitely be waiting. I mightn't get it til Oracle of Ages comes out. The first year of the VH is bound to have great games, but I seriously want OoA.

Day. Fricking. One. :D

Actually, no, I'll be preordering it as soon as possible, so with any luck, it might actually turn up the day before launch. That's usually the case with stuff I preorder from one particular place.

I don't know, depending on the price, I may save up for one. I'm about to start getting an allowance, $10 a week. That way, I can actually have a realistic chance of getting it and a game before Christmas. :P

for those who pre-ordered at gamestop already without official announcements of cost or colors as far as I know, did they ask you anything about color or will they just give you what they have?
I'll probably go ahead and pre-order now if they are already guaranteeing the color you want.

Is there anywhere you can preorder yet? I may consider preordering, if the price is reasonable, and they have a low price guarantee (if the console retails for cheaper, you pay that price; if the console ends up retailing for more expensive, you only pay the original preorder price). I would possibly take that chance to save some $$, since an official US price hasn't been released.

Otherwise, I'll wait until I'm tired of my DSi, Pokemon Gray comes out (if it is 3DS only for some reason), or the 3DS Lite releases.

Day one obviously, and I'll pre-order sometime after Nintendo announces the launch date, launch games, 3DS colors, and price.

I'll be doing this because I've been craving for a new handheld since my DS Lite's hinge broke back in 2009 (I still play it, it's just floppy and really annoying), if I had gotten a DSi back in holiday season 2009 like I originally planned, then I would of waited at least until holiday season 2011. I'm glad my birthday is in March.
