I don't know how that works. Maybe Nintendo's God, saying "get rid of your still-extremely good condition DS Phat and buy a DSi so we can slap you in the face with a new handheld in a few months".

    I'm suffering from SoulSilver withdraw. ;_;

    But I'm going to get a 3DS when my DSi breaks, and knowing how good I am at keeping things entirely intact, that could mean at least four years.
    So by that logic you'll be complaining about Nintendo ****ing you over with another new console when you're ready to get the 3DS...

    I would check your dogs' offshore bank accounts for any recent transfers originating in Japan.

    I mean, this is a Nintendo handheld we're talking about here.

    I've chucked my DS Lite down the freaking stairs and it works perfectly fine.
    Yeah. Turns out, the only part of the DS Phat that isn't made of Nintendium is the hinges, which are exactly what broke.

    Nah, I won't be complaining. I don't keep up with the latest handheld stuff these days.

    The joke was that Nintendo surreptiously paid your dogs to axe your DS, hence money transfers from Japan.

    Are you saying that Kabutopzilla's dog was a Nintendog?

    Or you could be a sane person and buy it online with free shipping and zero tax. But I'll go a step further and wait till a price cut.

    That largely depends on where you live. Business can't offer free shipping or no tax for everyone.

    I'm pretty sure amazon covers most of the USA. I'm sure the guy I quoted lived in an area that could do so.

    Ah but now even Amazon has a sales tax for me as of last month. Besides I probably will get it at Gamestop where they will probably have a deal if you trade in your DSi or XL. But there is still the sales tax for the state where I live in which while is not 10&#37; it is getting there. Two weeks ago they raised it up from 8.6% to 8.9%. Sales tax in my state is the same everywhere in the state. I buy something the same price at a Best Buy in one part of the state and in another part of the same state it is still the same price. The thing is thaat the sales tax is the same everywhere in my state.

    Then there is the problem if it will be able to fit in my pocket. I would rather have it like the DS Lite more than the old DS.

    But I can wait until the E3 conference.

    Oh yeah, the seizure incident does sound like a reason to keep pokemon out of 3D.
    That's good news for me because I pray that I'm not going to have to get a whole new console- handheld or otherwise- in order to play the 5th gen pokemon games when they come out. I have over $100 saved up and don't have much to spend any on, so I'm certain I'll be able to save up enough to buy one of these if it turns out I need to, but having enough to get the system and the game(s) is another story.

    The 3D-effects in a Pokemon game could be used during the attacks and weather, other than that I don't think it would fit well.

    I am not letting go of my DS Phat until the top screen completely falls off. Both hinges are disconnected now and the top screen won't even stay up supported. Nonetheless, Nintendo's not getting any of my money until I buy the completely new console from them.

    That would be terrible if the 3DS was 200 dollars - then it would be as much as a Wii!

    Good point, but the problem with it is figuring out how much money I can get away with spending while still having enough by the time of the release. I'm guessing that when the new games come out (assuming they once again have two games at first) it will cost about $100 for both games and the strategy guide. Given that fact it seems I will need about $300 if I want to ensure that I'm in the clear and have enough for the games and the system.
    Either way, I would certainly not be dissapointed if they decided to have the games on the normal DS (maybe they could have 2 versions of each game, 1 for the DS & 1 for the 3DS).

    Okay. The PR itself said the 3DS was a successor to the DS series which means it will be a new platform.

    Or you could wait till you actually get a game you do want and only buy then. And why do you need a guide book you have gamefaqs.
