The whole family's here

Nintendo of America has just confirmed the pink 3DS console will launch across North America on 4th December for $169.99.

Officially called Pearl Pink, unlike the European release the machine is available in two varieties: while both will come with Nintendogs + Cats, one carries the Toy Poodle and New Friends variety while another arrives with French Bulldog and New Friends. That's really the only difference.

Will you be grabbing this pink bundle of joy with both hands?

When you're all done mocking, TRU is offering this for $169.99 w/ a $40 GC starting 12/4. It was in a flyer I saw scanned on the internet, looked legit. I bet alot of these wind up on eBay for $170 minus the $40 GC.




I wanted my sister to get a 3ds for multiplayer games so wii wont be bord from alabama 2 texas now it might finally happen plus more street pass hits

Don't have a 3DS yet and I'm hoping they release the white one so I have an excuse that I earned something om waiting this long (except for the price drop). Otherwise, I would just buy the black. Shame. Wish my wife was interested in this and she'd get the pink.

Bring on the White 3DS with Mariokart 7, big N! On second thought... White with Kid Icarus also seems nice.

When is the last time nintendo has released this many colors for a system? Most of the time it takes them a year to get just one more color out, but now in less than a year with the 3ds they have released 6 around the world. They are really trying to build the 3ds up now.
