I'm not sure about getting the 3DS on launch anymore. Especially because of the battery life. Maybe I'll wait for the 3DS lite.

On the other hand I do miss having a handheld. When I lie in bed watching Simpsons I often reach for my DSi case absentmindedly only to realize there's no DSi in it anymore

Probably getting a Vita with LBP soon...

^ The Minish Cap is your all time favorite game? I thought it was one of the worst Zeldas. I got to the boss, but never took the time to kill him and finish the game. Somewhere in cyberspace Link is waiting outside Vaati's door for me to control him.

Do the Mario!

As I just got my PS3 earlier this year and is content with that and my Wii, plus having to worry about school and college, it won't be at launch and probably not this year either. I say somewhere between 2012 and 2016 if a new handheld hasn't been announced by then.

I usually get new consoles a month after it comes out ,but with all this graduation stuff I have to get this year, it could be a while. Hopefully, I can scrap up some money to get one during the summer.

I just know I'm going to want one of these, and I've been debating with myself for months over this. My biggest concern is the small size screen. My old eyes struggle to see on my DSi as it is, and the 3DS's touch screen is only the size of the DS-Lite's. I use my DSi a lot, and my favourite thing to do on it is drawing with Art Academy. For that reason alone I'm put off by the 3DS.

So I've just now made up my mind. I just ordered the Mario red DSi XL that I debated getting at Christmas. And what I'm going to do is hold out and hope Nintendo comes out with a 3DS XL version with larger screens. When/if they do that, or if the price drops enough, then I'll get the 3DS.

{sniff sniff} I'll be sad not having a 3DS when the rest of you get yours, but at least that'll give me time to save up for one.

If they have a midnight launch at GAME in the UK, I'll be there. I've picked the store most likely to have the midnight launch based on past releases. If not, 9am sharp on whatever Friday morning. Heck, I'll be there at 8am waiting for the store to open. As soon as we find out when it is, I'm also booking the day off work!

I'll wait for the console to establish itself as a good/bad console, and decide after that. I still think that many people would keep their DS (i, Lite, Xl) intact.

I'll probably sell my DSi and use the money for a 3DS once Kid Icarus releases. Hopefully I'll be able to get at least $100 for the used DSi, which won't make the upgrade $$$ too burdensome.

@HM...Definitely. I'm sure you'll need both systems in the same place to transfer.

@Token Girl Don't forget to transfer your DSiWare first... er, if that's possible to do before buying the 3DS. Probably not.

I got $100 for my DSlite, so that was good. Definitely takes a load off for the 3DS purchase.

Also, for those who have actually tried it out, do the screens feel smaller than the original DSi's? How about the pixel density?

Right now I'm viewing the 3DS as: 3/5 good, steps forward and 2/5 undesirable setbacks, compromises

I wonder if you could transfer it to someone else's 3DS before you sell it and then after you do and buy a 3DS, transfer it from that person's 3DS to yours?

@shinesprite The bottom screen's pixel density is higher than the DSi's for sure. It's higher than the original DS and the DS Lite's so it's definitely higher than the DSi's. The bottom screen is smaller so it should feel smaller. The top screen is supposedly vertically about the same height as the DSi's screens (I think?), and the pixel density we could calculate but I'm too lazy.

All I see that is a setback/compromise for the 3DS is the low battery life. What else is bad about it?

I've preordered a pair of them (blue and black). I really need to put my hands on one though so I can decide if I REALLY want one. Maybe there will be a demo unit somewhere around here that I can actually hold so I can compare the "feel" to my DSi.

If they turn out to be what I want, then I'll pass my DSi onto my son. If my daughter wants a DSi, I'll probably sell her White Lite and my son's current Triforce Gold Lite and buy her a DSi with the proceeds.

Anyone know how much bulkier it "feels" compared to the DSi? I'm aware of what the dimensions are but how does it FEEL?
