There's no changing folder color, is there? Odd that they'd have the only color be light blue.

They seem to have a very beta like quality to them. I would hope they offer some emoji like symbols of things like a NES, GBA, or perhaps Mario in the next update that could be used as the "cover".

Just picked up a repackaged Black 3DS for $119.01 from Target and it looks to be in pristine condition. Snagged MGS 3D with the $20 game trade-in coupon also. I'm hoping to pick up RE: Revelations on the way home with my other coupon tonight and grab Ghost Recon on Sunday from BB. Anything else I should consider picking up at some point?

Probably pretty obvious, but Super Mario 3D land and Mario Kart 7 are great. If your into fighting, Tekken Prime and Dead or Alive: Dimensions are pretty good. Kid Icarus is pretty great as well.

Kid Icarus and Super Mario 3D Land are Must Buys IMO. Resident Evil: Revelaytons too, if you can find it in stores (Target never carried). I'd recommend Pushmo on the eShop, and I guess Mighty Switch Force since 5 new levels are coming in an Update sooner or later.

Mario Kart 7...I'd wait for the Mid May patch to get it since it'd fix Maka Wuhu's Glitch (it's the best track in the game, too).

I basically agree with all of KingBroly's picks. Games that haven't already been mentioned....

Link's Awakening is my favorite Zelda ever. Replaying it currently and can confirm that my sentiment isn't just nostalgia, I really do think it's the best one (though I realize I'm probably in the minority on that). For the price on the eShop, it's a steal.

If you can find it cheap, Star Fox 64 3D plays really well and is great for short play sessions because of the level length.

I bought a copy of RE:R from Target earlier today for $20 with the coupon. Perhaps the Targets near you were just sold out?

Well my local Targets NEVER carry M-rated Nintendo games. It's astoundingly bad. And depressing.

I could recommend some other 3DS games, but they'd have to
A - Be reduced in price
B - Be put on the eShop at said reduced price

I'd much rather have a redesign than a price drop. Bring on the second analog stick and maybe a slightly bigger screen.

This- i had a 3DS at launch and I liked it. The price point wasn't the problem, it was the 2nd Thumbstick. It'll always hold back the system.

I'd pay full price for a redesign.

They'd have to Update every 3DS game that uses the Circle Pad Pro then to be compatible with the 2nd stick and extra shoulder buttons. Including the OS too.

Also, DSiXL is getting dropped to $130 at Wal-Mart apparently. Which is an awesome deal since it's the best DS.

I'm not sure why they're thinking of dropping the price again, UNLESS there's another design coming out soon. The system seems to be selling fine at this price point and I wholeheartedly believe it's worth every cent of the $169.99 price tag that it currently has(I bought it at launch and don't regret it). I won't buy another re-design unless it has some drastic hardware improvements... If it winds up being the long-rumored 3DS lite that is just a bit smaller with better battery life then I'm not gonna bite.

The articles I read seem to conjure up these images of Capcom executives sitting in a dark room with a cauldron and cackling about how no one will be able to buy this game used.


Do you really think I could start a fast food restaurant called McDonaldz and use the golden arches as my logo and get away with it?

I doubt Nintendo will drop the price of the 3DS again when it took forever for the DS Lite to even drop to $129.99. Heck the DSi is being sold for $149.99 which was the same price the phat DS launched at back in 2004. Plus the fact Nintendo recently said they predict profitability(currently they are losing money on the hardware) on the 3DS hardware again by the end of next quarter.

I would like to see a 3DS lite though with the following...

  • Dual Circle Pad (Nintendo did it with the wii motion plus add-on and later had it built into the wii mote so it is possible to see them implement an add on onto the hardware itself.)
  • Better battery life, and faster charging.
  • Wireless N
  • Have stylus slot the same way as the DS Lite for easier access.
  • Higher megapixel cameras
  • NFC (Wii U tablet controller has it, so it might be a possibility on the 3DS)

I'm debating getting a 3DS for zelda and the new kingdom hearts, but I'm probably going to wait and see what happens at E3. I want to know if they are doing a significant redesign with a second analog stick.

I don't think there will be a redesign this year since Wii U is coming out and a 3DS redesign would steal its thunder, and probably confuse consumers.

There definitely won't be a 3DS price drop, since Nintendo just posted its 1st ever loss in something like 3 decades, and I have read articles suggesting that Nintendo is actually considering raising the price of the 3DS now that it is selling well. But I don't think that will realistically happen..

http://www.theverge....o-earnings-loss

But this article says that they will stop selling the handheld below cost, which is what they are currently doing, which suggests a price increase.

I agree that the $130 DSiXL is a really, really good deal. I would get this over a 3DS in a heartbeat.

Count me in as the only person who thinks the other stick is a dumb idea. Make the games to suit the system, not the system to suit the games. You may as well beg for six face buttons so we can play street fighter properly

Nintendo released the DS Lite the same year they released the Wii.

They would never in a million years do a price increase. They're referring to cutting their costs so that they start making a profit by selling it at the same price.

I wanted to thank everyone for their advice on 3DS titles. I used last week's $20 gaming coupon from Target for several 3DS games that were recommended including: MGS SE 3D, RE: Rev, Tales of the Abyss, Starfox, Mario Land 3D and Kid Icarus Uprising. I was even able to go back on Sunday and get a free copy of Nintendogs on the repackaged 3DS! Killer deal.

Is Metal Torrent from Club Nintendo worth a damn? I've got 90 coins that are getting ready to expire.
