    Well, the Gamecube was a 3D console to begin with, but then again, that may have been graphics-wise only (if you know what I mean).

    I came very close to beating the original game, but I just couldn't beat King Boo.

    And to think, when I was born, we were just getting into the 16-bit era. The NES/Famicom and Game Boy were all that Nintendo had in January of 1990 - the Super NES/Super Famicom had yet to be released (Japan would get it later in 1990, with the West getting it over the next two years), and the Genesis was slowly eating up the market share of the NES.

    Look at how far video gaming has come over the last 20 years.

    So it would make sense that they'd want to, at the very least, port it over.
    That'd be pretty cool, as I've never actually bothered to play that game. I'd be curious to see how it would look on the 3DS.

    Release date, yet again, no longer set in stone?

    Now, this makes much more sense. It would be much more viable to release the 3DS during the Holiday season.

    Aaand more news, this time on price. If it hold true it's nothing we didn't expect, really.

    The lowest I can see it being at launch is $180. $200 seems about right, all things considered.

    Expected, but still disappointing. What happen to the good old days when consoles wouldn't cost you more than a hundred bucks?

    Were they ever here at all? What console launched for under $100?

    That never happened, what consoles are you talking about? O_o

    Never happened until years after their launch, anyway.

    Shoot, none of the DSes have been under $100.

    I think DS Phat was like $200, maybe a little lower.

    Nintendo hasn't launched any hardware, period, at under $100 since the original Game Boy and Game Boy Color, which launched at $90 and $80 respectively.

    Bah, whatever. All I know is I bought a GameCube and a PS2 for a 100 dollars. Wasn't at launch but wasn't too much time after. I got a good deal on the DS too, so maybe that's why a handheld priced at $200 seemed off.

    The SP launched at $99, and the DS launched at $150?

    Yeah, I'm just going to assume that's a typo.

    The 'Cube didn't drop to $100 until two years after launch - September 2003 - and the PS2 didn't get as low as $100 until only about a year ago.

    It was. And is now fixed.

    Must be breathing the fumes that arise from hot silicon. Computers will do that to you.

    Movies? From Disney, which could also mean Pixar? On a Nintendo handheld? In 3D?

    I love you, Nintendo.

    Also, I can't believe how they're bringing all these franchises to the 3DS: Metal Gear, Kid Icarus, Contra, etc.

    One more thing...

    Aww, I really wanted the Gold one.
    Oh well, I think I'll go with either blue or red. Or both. My DS that I got launch day came broke, and I definately don't want the 3DS to do the same.
    Events:
    On a 3rd Gen Game (Temporarily Unavailable for Trade-Missing DS with a GBA Slot): Bonus Disk Jirachi, 10 ANIV Celebi, 10 ANIV Typhlosion, 10 ANIV Suicune, 10 ANIV Espeon, MYSTRY Mew, XD Lugia
    On a 4th Gen Game: ALAMOS Darkrai, Japanese Member Card Darkrai, Zoroark Movie Scizor, 11219 Mew, NZ Jirachi, Japanese Regigagas to activate the event
    On a 5th Gen Game: GAMESTOP Suicune, May 2012 Darkrai x 3, June 2012 Victini x 2, Spring 2012 Reshiram, Spring 2012 Zekrom, 2012 Arceus, Liberty Island Victini

    That was a listing from a Dutch sight. Colours may vary based on region.

    Likewise, those are probably the only stock photos they have of the thing. The final design, while probably similar, will most likely differ in some areas.

    Like not having the top part of the inside of the lid be black on all color schemes
