Man, I'm totally broke now. I couldn't control myself and ordered all 3 handhelds. There goes all my GS credit haha. Pretty sure I'll have to have the LoZ, but I'm still thinking over the AC and the Blue Vita. At least I have some time to consider them.

 

Whew! Can I afford to go to sleep now? Actually, it's more like: can I afford to stay awake? XD

The Fuck is happening today, so much shit going up for pre-order.

 

Either way, make a Red one of these and I'm sold

Looks like they also just put up three GS exclusive Wiimote Pluses including Yoshi, Bowser and Toad with two releasing a week from Friday.   I believe the Yoshi one was released in Japan and Europe previously and the other two were released in Japan.

It's a combination of Pax Prime and the Gamestop convention being held during the same weekend.

Still not interested until they confirm that all devices have an IPS screen, I'd rather not end up with the TN panel again.

When I heard the announcement I immediately went to GS to get the Animal Crosing new3ds preordered for the SO. Apparently the Animal Crossing one was a placeholder though? It's SKU 800, so I hope it's the right one. I put $50 down on it.

I just want a standard white new 3ds with super famicom colored buttons, is this too much too ask?

For NoA, yes it is to much to ask, they suck a$$. I'm all for bundles, but at least release a "barebones" unit for those who don't want this game and bundle set. NoA does shit like this because they can.

Today is the start of the GS managers conference here in Vegas, so everything GS is discussed and announced. That's why we are getting all this info at one time.

NOOOO!! I imported the JP ones, assuming they'd never come to NA. Now I have... an incomplete set of NA Wii Remotes. :-(

Being a big fan of yoshi, I suppose I will have to pre-order one of those Wii-motes. I'll need to get another Hori battle pad to go with it for some MK8/Smash local co-op. 

 

That aqua blue ps vita looks very nice but $199.99? Eh I'll pass.

 

And those new 3ds XL's are nice too. If only they would have more games on it besides Xenoblade. (Already have the Pokemon Blue 3ds XL).

WHY IS THE ZELDA ONE UPSIDE DOWN?

GODDAMNIT, NINTENDO, YOU'RE APPARENTLY AWARE OF THE FACT PEOPLE OPEN THESE, WHY CAN'T YOU BE CONSISTENT ABOUT IT?

You can open them?

 

Edit: A vanilla Vita for $200? Am I missing something? It is at least a bundle with a Hannah Montana game or something?

In the $240 bundle?  Almost certainly physical since GS is just selling you the game and system and forcing you to buy both.

meeeehhhhhhh.... i buy all the zelda DS systems but not sure if i want this one. Looks ok, but the game is kinda crap. Not sure if i want to spend that much just to throw it on the shelf with my other zelda systems in their box. If i was going to use it maybe, but since Nintendo doesn't know how the internet or user accounts work, im stuck with using my fire emblem 3ds as my main system

 

I skimmed the first few pages, the zelda one is a GS exlusive right? If it was coming to Best Buy or something id use some rewards points on it.

 

 

That aqua blue vitas nice but i think $200 for just a vita is a bit much these days

Preordered that 3DS with great justice today. I knew waiting it out would pay off.

Of course, right after I buy the XL, they bring the faceplate model to America.

That price is a bit steep, no? The standard XL is $200, but the smaller model with a game bundlesmtpout.secureserver.netd in is $220? Nintendo playing hardball.


Assuming the game is worth $40 and the cover plates are roughly $10 each, that makes the N3DS $160.

It's just unfortunate that people are being made to buy stuff they may not want to get the system.  Hopefully NOA gives some clear information on how/if the system will be otherwise available.

I agree, it's not the most appealing package, but between that and not being able to buy the N3DS at all, this beggar won't be a chooser.

Understatement of the year. I love my "thick" Vita and want to get a slim but  as a back up but I'm not spending over $100 for one.

Every damn time!  Every time I get a new hand held console, the special Zelda edition comes out and I won't have freaking money for it.  I swear, Nintendo looks at my buying activity and is like "Okay, Roninalchemist bought one, we can release the one he'd REALLY want instead!"  

 

 

Damnit, Nintendo.

Yeah, I just wanted the all white unit, but this will have to work, and dealing with NoA, we're lucky to have this. LOL

 

is GS convention held at PAX?

No, it's an annual event they hold once a year. Last year it was in Anaheim I believe, and two years ago it was in Vegas. Vegas seems to be their most used spot, as it ROCKS. I wish E3 would leave LA, as it sucks, and move to Vegas as well.

 

Anyway, yesterday was the managers conference, today is the trade show for managers ONLY, and tomorrow, it is the trade show again, but open to the public, for a fee of course. I went two years ago when it was here, and while it wasn't bad, it is way over crowded, and way over priced for one days worth of show. There was some decent swag and tournaments, and I paid for the cost by selling my swag, but this year the prices where up, and it didn't look worth my time.

 

I used to go to CES in the early 90's, and E3 when it started(95), so I've been to great shows that weren't overflowing with the dregs of humanity. LOL

No Pikachu Remote I'll pass on those and continue dreaming. Still thinking about grabbing that animal crossing new 3ds but just having trouble paying extra for a game that I don't want.

That blue vita is sweet but I have no reason to ditch my day 1 vita for a cosmetic upgrade.

This is NoA plan, making us buy a bundle, to sale a game most don't want. It's all good, when dealing with "N", especially NoA, you have to know BS is a part of their business model, and to pick and choose your battles. I wanted the all white standard N3DS, and this may be my best option. I've already got my decals to cover this, as I did the same to get my all white XL, by covering Pikachu. https://www.etsy.com...s?ref=related-4
