The first few batches of owners are only forfeiting their chance to get things for a lower price/better features in exchange for early fun (which, in fact, may be gimped by the smaller selection of games and other things).It's rarely a good idea to buy a console first unless you want to say "OMG haha I've got the 3DS ". You'll save yourself from launch defects (see 360's RROD, DSL's hinge cracks, etc.), have a better of games, new features, and so much more. Would it really be a bad thing for them to benefit from early adopters, anyway? Edited on Thu 24th March, 2011 @ 23:36 by Ark .
