hey guys,

With the fairly pricey price tag, its tempting to wait for an elusive slim version. Do you reckon there will even be one, it alreay looks sleek and slim, what can they improve? Maybe flash memorey :P The DS lite was a must because the DS phat looked ugly but surley the 3ds looks wonderful as it is?

Why don't we wait until the 3DS is actually released?

Game Boy Color ;)

It's far too early to say for sure anyway. Besides, we don't really know how much flash memory the 3DS has yet

pretty much jumping the gun here, aren't we? lol, as already mentioned, all their previous handhelds received a revamp/upgrade sometime down the line, so i'd have to assume the 3DS would be no different.

I'm going to hold out for a 3DS XL. I want bigger screens.

The 3ds is based on the lite/dsi design so I doubt they could do too much with it. They are surely going to update it eventually but I'm not going to want to wait the year or two after the release to pick up an "upgraded" version

Not much to upgrade, it seems. Bigger screens would give me a headache in 3d xD

But then again after that they'll release the 3DSi Lite XL Premium Ultra Super Deluxe version.

I love Erica (Strike Witches), Eureka (Eureka Seven), and Tenma (School Rumble), stay away from them. xD
Update: Also love Yukari and Mizore from Rosario + Vampire.

The 3DS already looks light on it's own.

Maybe, but it won't be called the 3DS Lite.

I hate how people are saying "I'm waiting until the 3DS Lite" or "I'm waiting for the 3DS XL." What makes you think that the 3DS line-up is going to be exactly like the DS line-up? This is a whole new generation! And while Nintendo will probably figure out a way to make it smaller like their past handhelds, the 3DS probably won't be getting any bigger.

I think there will be negative feedback on battery life of 3DS. Nintendo once stated (or I just thought this out) the battery could not be strong enough to satisfy people willing to play for very long outdoors.

I think you just thought it out, they said they're aiming/it will have battery life comparable to the DSi and it definitely have more battery life than the PSP because it doesn't have a UMD Drive draining the battery.

The Gameboy Color was the upgrade.
