OK here is the newest rumors.

The 3DS is coming to japan in november 21-23 (by pikming squad), and well normally games comes to other territories 1 year-6 months after thejapaneese release, will happend th same to the 3DS? Probably yes, as it tells me the last DS games will be released in march, so probably the 3DS will be released on march, or maybe later.

Unless the games are major holiday releases, then the release dates are close together. Remember this: NA got the Wii AND the DS before Japan

Also, did anyone else notice the lack of major DS games coming out this holiday? (Aside from Golden Sun Dark Dawn that is)

^ What lz said. I find it hard to believe that Nintendo would miss out on an entire holiday season with potential handheld buyers.

Also, the prices of the DSi and DSi XL got lowered. Convenient, right?

Agreed but this thing is going to be sold out for a long time so it doesn't matter when they release it!

Also. I beg to differ about the DS releases. I'm looking forward to etrain odyssey 3 final fantasy 4hol and golden sun but that is just about it for the foreseeable future!

But they still have Wii games that they need to sell instead of making the same mistake as DS and having no good games out for 6 months.

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!

Japan gets it in October or November... lucky
Nintendo has to translate everything to English as well, before they can be shipped to the US... we'll probably get it in March...
but with other DS prices dropping, they must be trying to get ready for the 3DS

Well we will find out something for sure on the 29th of this month!

Yep, that's all I'm waiting for, something official. I HATE ALL OF THE RUMORED RELEASE DATES!

So I did a little bit of "quickie" research yesterday to look at release dates of the most recent consoles and discovered this:
Xbox = Nov 15 2001
360 = Nov 22 2005
PS2 = Oct 26 2000
PS3 = Nov 11 2006
Game Cube = Nov 18 2001
Wii = Nov 19 2006

I was kinda digging the trend, but then I was like, duh! the 3DS is obviously a portable and maybe I should be looking at the release dates of the portables. So here they are:

PSP = March 24 2005
Game Boy = July 31 1989
Game Boy Pocket = Sept 3 1996 (was it really that much space inbetween them?)
Game Boy Light = April 14 1998
Game Boy Color = Nov 18 1998
GBA = June 11 2001
GBA SP = March 23 2003
GB Micro = Sept 19 2005
DS = Nov 21 2004
DS Lite = June 11 2006
DSi = April 5 2009
DSi XL = March 28 2010

What did I learn from all of this? Absolutely nothing. Release dates on the portables are extremely inconsistant. Not really any trends here. Oh well, at least it's a history lesson. Enjoy!

Actually the DSi release date depends on where you live in the U.S. but yet that was still the Official release date. Some cities released it later or earlier which is surprising.

Thinking a spring release all these devs games are coming out next year. Still could a wii/ds launch. Weak launch support save for a few tittles and enter in with some 3dsware/handheld VC love.

WAT!

1. If I wait awhile after it's released, the price will drop
2. If I wait awhile after it's released, a better version will come out
3. If I wait awhile after it's released, I'll actually get one with no problem
4. If I wait awhile after it's released, all the good games will be out already
5. If I wait awhile after it's released, more colors will hopefully come

I should probably wait.

That's my biggest concern I have with getting a launch system, but since I decide to keep my DSi( mainly because of all of money I've spent on DSiware) I shouldn't have any problem with trading in a 3DS if Ninty gives us an upgraded system within a year of the 3DS. I just really hope Nintendo will give everybody a strong line up for the launch titles as well. Everything else doesn't seem like a deal breaker to me.

Why are people surprised?

I expected this from the start, I mean, it was officially announced at E3, why would they release it that soon?

Idc what rumors come out, until the official announcement, I'm sticking with my Nov. 21st release date. Cmon 3ds do'nt let me down.

To each his own.
