    Hmm, I'll just ask the Game Stop I always go to when I get White how much I'd get for returning my DS Lite which is basically in perfect condition.

    Of course, seeing as how the 3DS will cost between $200-$250 (or at least it more than likely will), I'd have to ask this question beforehand so that I am not DS less for longer than expected.

    Again, I will be absolutely floored if they give you more than $20-$30, and the upper edge of that would still be a surprise.

    I'm pretty sure the condition doesn't mean a whole lot, in the sense that if the system still works fine, they'll take it and resell it at what I assume is a price point set at the corporate level.

    True. I could also just see what other stores do. I remember that Best Buy did the selling thing with the DSi XL. $20-$30 isn't that bad.......if I were looking to buy a video game.

    Well, it doesn't really matter. I should have the 3DS by the end of next year.

    Generally, if the hinges aren't broken (common problem with the DS Lite) or if the touch screen isn't deeply scratched or broken, they'll take it. As you said, the price they'll take it in for is based on a set price by corporate. Even items slapped with a refurbishing fee have a set price (usually about 20% marked off from the total they'd give you).

    It will likely be closer to 250 at this point, based on what we've seen and heard already.

    I never said the first one. I said they might accept the DSi/XL for that much, I just wasn't pinning my hopes on that they would.


    Anyway tommorow they'll annouce the release date and price for the 3DS. YAY!!!!!!

    Some DS games are region locked on the DSi, but I do see your point.

    It would be great if the 3ds had support for the virtual console, unlike the DS, I would really like to play my Wii games I downloaded.

    It does. Good call.

    Oop, there goes that. Shockingly enough, the handheld Virtual Console will offer handheld games. Game Boy and Game Boy Color only, at least at the outset.

    I know I'm gonna get BCVM22'd to hell and back for this, but I really do hope that GBA titles will be available eventually.

    Who would have a problem with that? They just aren't offering them at launch. The Wii's Virtual Console added a few different platforms as time went on, though none of them were very notable in life.

    I suspect they're simply waiting a while because they know full well that plenty of gamers still have GBA/DS units in perfect working order and software libraries to go with them and they're waiting for those to start to fade away.

    And my hopes and dreams stay uncrushed for yet another day.

    In any case, I still have a (mostly) functional DS Lite, so the addition of GBA games wouldn't affect me that much, anyway.

    Even with that, though, the allure of having such a large library of games on a handheld without having to worry about losing cartridges underneath the couch cushions or having them stolen by that creepy-looking dog down the street (which actually happened to me) would likely be too much for me to resist. Yes, I take notoriously poor care of my stuff, why do you ask?

    Me not having to switch back and forth between two handhelds is a pretty big plus, too.

    tl;dr and such.

    Last I heard the console was $200 and the games up to $60. So yeah, I think I'll wait a while before I get one.

    After all, two minutes late is better than an hour late...

    I might get one myself if I save enough money... If I had any money.
    Still, I'm quite impressed about the announcement.

    Plus, soon you will only need one Friend Code just for your system, not just one for each game you have. This, I like already.
    It's been ages since I last woke up...
    I wonder if anything changed at all...
    Then again, the more things change...
    The more they stay the same.

    March 25th for Europe (so before America), but no price given. Lame with the latter.

    Ah well have to wait some more, and even more so with Australia's news. -_-

    I expected 250 because of how japan prices things at 100 yen to a dollar. I usually never get handhelds at launch so I'll wait for that lovely price drop.

    GamesRadar has the prices for a few different European retailers at the bottom of this article: http://www.gamesradar.com/3ds/ninten...16102754448006

    Strange to me that Nintendo would let retailers set their own price.

    I have little knowledge of the economy, so I shall take the sites word for it that that is bad.

    GAME, the store I usually go to, is asking for Ł230 per console ($368 according to google) and Ł40 ($64). Even I can tell that is appaling.

    This is compared to Ł150 ($240) for a DSI, and Ł180 ($288) for a Wii, at the respective launches.

    I am very angry
