I am wondering if its worth buying the 3ds at launch when I have a Dsi and psp 3000 I'm worried that the I'll buy the 3ds and have loads of casual games as we still can't see how the games will be 2 years down the line.I'm thinking of waiting to see what the psp2 offers what do you guys think.

I'm more concerned about a cooler version of the 3DS a year later or so (3DS lite, 3DSi, 3DS XL) ... but I'm going to buy the 3DS on day 1 anyway!

The hype is strong with this one... we can only hope it'll live up, y'know? No one knows for sure how anything will pan out in the future.

Yeah, dragon, you should get a 3DS for all the wonderful 3DSware games I'm sure will come out

Not really imo. Here's a quote a user made in another topic -

I just hope, that the first bach of 3DS,don't turn out to have Bugs, or other flaws, like The Old DS did.

If anyone here, who got the DS with The Red dot on the Thouch Screen knows what I'm talking about.

It depends on the release date games. Considering that from what I've heard Street Fighter 4 will be a launch title, it's definitely a must-buy for the fighting game crowd. Other than that, there appears to be nothing else that would immediately interest me.

There hasn't been a system worth getting at launch since the GCN (and even that's arguable), I kinda doubt this will change that.

Beyond Good and Evil 2 better be happening! In the meanwhile though, here's a fun little Let's Play of the original. Think you'll like the game if you like Zelda!

The cons to being a late adopter is that the next system will be released when you,ve only had the system for a year or to like people who bought a dsi xl instead of a lite or dsi.another cons is that your system will have its support dry up like my gba did.But there are also pros if you adopt later.

I'd rather wait than to regret buying it instantaneously. As quoted above, bugs or blunders may be fixed and the price will inevitably be cut off at some point in time. And to be honest, there are only a few games that are confirmed to be released, others are just mere rumors. So even if you feel the need to try out the technology incorporated in the 3DS, that doesn't mean that you have to stop being wise.

I think I'm going to wait on this one too. I still have a bunch of DS/DSiWare to play. I also want to avoid the mob and wait until the second round of production when the launch bugs are fixed and the hardware is more reliable (hopefully Japan will be good beta testers and most of the kinks will be fixed by US launch-but still). I don't know if I can hold out long enough for the 3DS lite, but price will probably be a huge factor there.

Depends on what the cost and quality of the final product is and what the launch titles will be. Personally I'll wait a while to see how it fairs.
