no offense, but I read Eragon back when it first came out because everyone was raving about it, only to see that the dude had completely ripped off (oh, i'm sorry, he was inspired by) some of my favorite authors — Tolkien, Eddings, McCaffrey — and there's even some Star Wars up in there too. I think i laughed my way through it just because i'd paid for it (if it'd been a library book i'd'a just taken it back) and then i gave it to my brother.

he liked it, at least, so the money i spent didn't go to waste :3
i know, i know, Eddings, he's not much better but he still wound up ripped off hard by Paolini, lol

If Disney have much input then I'd think that KH3 appearing on the Wii would be possible, as Nintendo is their games company of choice.

Until there is an announcement about KH3 I'll just wait for KH 3DS.

What? The Wii got the vastly inferior and far lower-budget version of Tron. The PS3 got the love there.

And besides that, Disney publishing has nothing to do with Kingdom Hearts. Square Enix licenses the Disney characters.

If you think Disney doesn't retain some modicum of creative control over how their characters behave in KH, at least, you've got another thing coming. they'd never sign off on anything that would give another company complete freedom with what their characters say or do because they've got an 'image' for each and every one that they valiantly protect. that said, idk what kind of influence they do or don't have regarding which system(s) the games are published for — i'd think they wouldn't really care so long as they were getting their licensing fee(s) and some fat royalty checks afterward :3

Well see, to me, saying "I'll just wait for two years or so for a price drop" sounds more like saying that you don't really want a 3DS that badly, as opposed to some who seem to think "I really wanted a 3DS, but Nintendo is charging too much for it." I mean, do people think Nintendo is overcharging for the costs to develop and manufacture the 3DS? I doubt that's the case, so it comes down to whether or not you like what they're offering. Do you see where I'm going with this? Why complain about the thing being too expensive if you know it costs that much to build but you simply don't like it? Why not just say you don't like it enough to want to buy it now rather than make the claim that it's "too expensive?"

By the way, time is valuable too guys. Having a 3DS today and having a 3DS two years from now aren't the same thing.

the problem is that 'value' is entirely subjective. to some, the 3DS and what it has to offer would be a bargain at $300, and to others (like me) the DS/i is enough for now, especially since they've said they won't be discontinuing support anytime soon, and there are other things that take priority at the moment (food, shelter, transportation, etc. and so forth). Think of when you go grocery shopping — if you go on an empty stomach, that bunch of bananas at 55 cents a pound might be worth it, but if you go on a full stomach you might look at 'em and think of holding off until the price drops back down to 50 cents a pound next week.

Right now I wouldn't be able to drop $250 on something i need, let alone something that's just a want, and so I am content to hold off on purchasing a 3DS for now. Money being tight is a pretty good deterrent to hopping onto the hype train along with everyone else. :3

If the box and cartridge don't match, you have a problem. Nintendo has contact information listed on their anti-piracy site here; the contact info is for NA, but that's their only anti-piracy site (or at least i can't find one for AUS). you can at least fire off an e-mail and they can either help you themselves or get you in touch with someone who can answer your questions... i'm sure they'd be able to talk to you about any suspect NA game(s) you've purchased. You can also report the store that sold you the counterfeit/s (if they do indeed turn out to be counterfeit) when you contact them.

that said, i've purchased a counterfeit game on accident before (this was years ago by now, i hadn't even realized they were counterfeiting them at the time :(), and for me, the biggest key was the errors in the booklet. the fonts for the warnings in the front and back of it were similar but not quite the same as all my other booklets (and Nintendo always puts the exact same stuff in those warnings, you can seriously hold two booklets up to each other and they should be identical), and there were spelling/grammar errors all throughout the warnings as well.

the stylus alone won't scratch the screen easily, but over time the nib may become worn or deformed, or if there's dirt/dust on the screen it picks up, you never know. there are also certain games [read: Elite Beat Agents] that have more intense stylus-moving actions than others, so your mileage may vary. i know i wrecked my touchscreen's screen protector with EBA; i'd'a hated to see my touchscreen had i not had the protector on it.

bottom line, though, is that this is what screen protectors are for. if you're that worried, they're readily available at almost any retailer that sells DS systems, or even over the internet.

To me this makes an awful lot more sense than the people who are waiting for a price drop. Do you really think Nintendo's going to cut it down $50 six months from now?

who said we would only wait six months?

@Tj92: unfortunately, that's not true — if they can't replicate or repair the problem, there's a chance they'll just send out a new one linked to Pyrokai's DSi Shop information. that's what happened to me, anyway. I remember specifically being told over the phone while setting up the repair order that I would need to back up all my games, pictures, etc. onto an SD card. the only thing that really sucks is that you can't transfer any DSi Sound stuff to SD.

edit: actually, i totally just checked on a hunch, and sure enough all the crap i'd recorded back when i first got my DSi is still there! haha, Nintendo was apparently able to copy that over for me. awesome! i'm not saying they'll definitely be able to do it for you too, but there's precedent now :D :D :D

@Pyrokai: if they do replace your DSi, don't panic! Just go into the DSi Shop, redownload all your games, and once they've been redownloaded to your system you'll be able to copy your backed up save information and stuff from your SD card again no problem. :3
