"Hi! I'm Zack, and I'm a gamer!"

Male, 26, Australia

I've been playing Nintendo and PlayStation since the 90s, so I'm a gamer at heart. I play each edition of Dungeons & Dragons as both a player and Dungeon Master; I've created several settings for use with D&D. I'm also a fan of Power Rangers.

I just noticed that the Super Nintendo-inspired buttons are more prominent on the black console. Too bad Australia only has a choice of white at launch, but at least we're lucky that we'll be getting it months before the rest of the world. Besides, white was my first choice anyway. ;)

I'm looking at preordering one before its release, but it's a tough decision choosing between either white or white. My friend's going to Japan this month, and he might even be able to bring back some Japanese-exclusive Cover Plates for me. Hopefully they're not region-locked! :D

Between this, my Christmas shopping and the new D&D core rulebooks (in addition to anything else which happens to pop-up), my poor wallet will be weeping for months! D:

@NintendoFan64 Yes, there will be a New Nintendo 3DS XL; in fact, it releases on the same day as the standard model. ;)

It took a moment to sink in when I started reading my Nintendo newsletter, but once it did I flipped out! Nintendo's actually doing something extremely nice for us Aussies! I'm slightly disappointed that the base model won't be in black at launch, but white would be my first choice in colour anyway. The only thing that would make this news better is if the new Pokémon games are out on the same day...pardon? They are?! WOOHOO! :D

"As a promotion it's particularly clever — target your most enthusiastic consumers and give them the means to share their excitement."

I wonder...did this promotion skip Australia entirely? If Nintendo really was targeting its elite CN members, then either they did skip Oceania (again) or I guess I'm not an elite (21,250 Stars and 116 registered items including one of each home console and two of each handheld console since CN's Aussie debut). :(

This behaviour is appalling. As much as I would like a copy of the demo with unlimited uses, I wouldn't accept an offer from anybody who tried to sell one to me, even if only for a few dollars. If I was one of the lucky few to receive four codes (which I doubt I would have anyway given that I'm an Aussie), I would have generously given my spares to anybody who wanted one. :(

@Kirk (#9) Well said. I have to agree whole-heartedly with every single point. :)

I remember back in the day, I couldn't quite figure out how to hold the N64 Controller; I spent years holding the left prong and stretching my thumb across to the Analog Stick before I thought to hold the centre prong! :D

I'm not sure how many other people realise this, but I figured out that the consoles come with a set of plates pre-installed (plain white or plain black), so there are technically 40 different designs at launch! :O

As for which ones I'd pick...I guess I'd choose the plain ones: green, magenta, turquoise, yellow, purple, brown, red and blue. The cyan-coloured Mario-themed design is neat too, as is the metallic Mario one. :)

@Grumblevolcano @dinosauryoshi I've been wondering the same thing for a while, too. The way I see it, it'll be Green, Pink, Cyan, Yellow, Red and Blue, plus either Purple and Orange or Black and White. The latter two appear in so many Mario spin-off titles; for that reason, as well as a nod to the Yoshi's Island series and Super Mario Sunshine, I think Purple Yoshi and Orange Yoshi deserve a chance to shine...erm, excuse the pun.

Of course, the ultimate outcome would be Yoshi being a special case, receiving 12 colour variations (Green, Pink, Cyan, Yellow, Purple, Orange, Red, Blue, Black, White, Magenta and Brown): Every Yoshi in one game for the very first time! :)

I still remember that Christmas morning, all the way back in 1997, when my brother and I found a shiny new Nintendo 64 under the tree. It not only jump-started my love of gaming, but also caused me to bond with quite possibly my favourite Marioverse character(s), Yoshi. :)

Bye-bye Skylanders, hello amiibo! I'm thinking of Yoshi as being one of my first characters. ;)

By the way, who else thinks that this will be the initial roster of characters in the new games, with all the rest being unlockable? :)

Wow, that's not a bad price for WDC, and just when I was getting back into Yu-Gi-Oh! too! ;)

@ThomasBW84 But...I thought they made five MM games for Game Boy. My collection plan is mapped out to accommodate five games! :(
