Hey guys, I always enjoy the show.
I do have to say that I think Cheapy was off base with (what amounted to a rant) his comments on the 3DS.
For the main reason that he's kind of going off half-cocked. There really isn't much info price-wise for North America for games or for the system. And when the discussion goes into hypothetical situations (if this, and this and this) it looks like straight fanboyism. I don't think Cheapy is a fanboy but on this topic his discussion right off a message board.
Also, I'd like to say that I think the discussion was focused on just the 3D aspect of the system. While 3D is the flashiest bullet point. The 3DS does have other features that seem to make it worthwhile for the hardcore among us. Specifically, the analog slider, increased horsepower, and availability of virtual console portable games. So while I do want to buy a 3DS (eventually), it may have very little to do with the 3D and much more to do with these other features.
