I wonder if maximumzero walks around asking people if they took his stapler.


Occasionally I consider buying a red stapler for the hell of it.

Well we have around 3 or so weeks until E3. Anyone know the date for Nintendo's conference? I might need to record it, since I might be at school that day.

Dear Nintendo, my E3 wish is for a license transfer tool. I would buy at least one DSi XL if I could port data and games.

I just grabbed one from Amazon. I wanted bigger screens (don't care about it being DSi or not - who the hell uses the camera on it?). The 3D DS sounds like a big yawn...but if it's cool and has good games, I'll grab one and keep the XL for 'normal' DS games.

Best case for DSi XL, hands down. I've seen them pretty much everywhere now (but not WalMart, weirdly).

This. It's why I bought one. I'll likely buy the 3DS, but the bigger screens of the XL are worth it to me on this for games I already have. Such is the benefit of too much disposable income. It's why I still have my Lite, for the GBA slot. I was on the fence with the XL, but I don't regret it all.

Second. I doubt it'll ever happen though. I have some friends that would buy a black Wii too if they'd just get this done.

Plus with PS3 remote play you can basically PLay your PS3 games on your PSP Go anywhere you are basically making it a Portable PS3


But Metroid sucks. I consider it Gunpei Yokoi's worst creation, even beating the Virtual Boy.


RE: XBox ONE

at least they change their name and not name their systems 1,2,3,4

I cannot imagine Nintendo as a company is so dense as to continue to convince themselves that the average customer is willing to accept that software downloads are tied to hardware instead of a user. All three major competitors (Sony, MSFT, and Apple) allow it and I expect Nintendo will, eventually.

Since Nintendo can seemingly to a license transfer with both serial numbers I expect the hold up is putting together a tool that is user accessible from a Wii, DSi or the internet.

None of this is helped by the seeming fact that Nintendo randomly decided to bolt save files down to single systems.

I'm still waiting to play my VC games on my DS. Seriously, its obvious the DS can emulate NES/SNES etc, so make it happen already Nintendo! It's why I have not bought a VC game in years from them.

You cant necessarily expect that price drop in Japan to translate to a price drop in the US:
1) The US price and the Japanese price arent all that different
2) This is the first price drop the Japanese have ever had. The price has been going UP all these years with each new model.

Logical answer: Never.

I can't imagine Nintendo wants the XL to turn out just like the micro did. It will sit at it's current price point until the very end of it's life and then clearance out. I wonder how long it will be until the DSi's get clearanced out across the way. I want a red one dearly.

Not going to bite. I bet the Nintendo 3DS will be out sooner or later. MSRP will probably be around $200.

Hi guys. I have had a black DS Lite since about the time Lite's launched. Honestly, I don't really like playing on handhelds. However, I REALLY like the 2d games that you can pretty much only find on handhelds. In the days of the GBA I played all the games on the TV using an actual controller along with the Gamecube Gameboy player attachment. (or whatever it is called.) Obviously, the DS's two screens make such a solution impractical which is why I broke down and bought the Lite.

I'm now considering getting a DSi XL because a) I don't care at all about portability and b) the larger screens and larger touch screen make this seem like a much more usable device.

For those of you up thread who were looking forward to the larger touchscreen making playing games like phantom hourglass more comfortable how did that go? Did it make a difference?

Also, how do the D-Pad and the button layout compare to the Lite? Is the D-pad any larger (closer to maybe the old NES controllers) or is it still tiny? How are the buttons? Are the they a little better spaced and not so crowded together as on the Lite?

Thanks.

I am so excited about tomorrow.

I'm excited because I love new tech.

But then again I hate spending money, and I've got so many DS games as it is to finish that this'll be adding a whole 'nother generation of backlog for me.

I still have a number of DS games I need to get before they magically disappear off the market, so definitely gotta do that. :P

I want a 3DS though, I never miss a Nintendo launch and this time, my girlfriend will be dragged along for the ride (if I have to go to midnight premiers of Twilight, she sure as hell coming to a Nintendo nerdfest lol!) :D
