    The truly hilarious part will be when there turns out to be shortages. Meaning there'll be people who traded in their hardware and will turn up empty handed on launch day.

    Wow, your anecdote is extremely fascinating and completely disproves the possibility of what he said!

    The only hold pre-orders for up to 48hrs right? Does that mean they will hold someone's from the next shipment?

    I'm thinking about getting because I really would like to see what Pokemon Black and White would look like on the 3DS.

    No I understood what he said and I said why that possibly wouldn't be true at my Gamestop.

    You're not the best person to talk to anyway.

    Unless, of course, GF built some 3DS capability into the BW code, but what's the probability of that?

    That report back in Febuary? about GF getting advanced screening for it maybe. Plus maybe this:

    http://nintendo3dsblog.com/games/pokemon-black-white

    But thats not confirmed. I don't really care either way, just as long as I get one 3DS and one Black.

    Pursuant to this, one figures there would have been some indication of that found when the game was dumped upon release.

    No one's worried about whether an unapproved third-party backup device is compatible with a new format. Sorry.

    The report said Game Freak has 3DS dev kits. It said absolutely nothing about Black and White.

    well, if you like to play through more than once but don't want to erase all your hard work then you should be.

    They hold preorders for 48 hours yes, if someone does not pick there's up within that time the next person on the list with a preorder gets a call. Once all preorders are satisfied they can be sold to those who have none.

    Gee, good thing the 3DS doesn't come out on the same day as BW. I'd be waiting on a very long line (more than likely) for a game when most of the other people would be purchasing a 3DS (I envy those people able to get a 3DS). BW comes out three weeks before the 3DS, so that's good.

    With the Game Boy & Game Boy Color Virtual Console, I'm assuming that the graphics would be better for those games (but not necessarily in full 3D, just slightly enhanced graphics). If RBYGSC come out for the Virtual Console. I'm also assuming there wont be any problems with the games, like how GSC have that time problem and RBY are very old. Also, one more thing I am assuming is that the Wii & DSiWare Cards would now become Wii, DSiWare & 3DSWare Cards all in one.

    Considering that has to do with an internal battery in the cartridge it is safe to assume that no one will experience such a problem.

    Well they're just called Nintendo Points cards now.

    Same. I'm excited about it and I really want it, but I'm scared there won't be enough 3DS's for everyone and I'll end up without one.

    If you don't pre-order one that will most likely be the case.

    Best kept secret: Go to Kmart on launch day. NO ONE ever thinks to go to Kmart. Everyone usually heads to GameStop, Target, Best Buy and Walmart. That's how I got my Wii; by going to Kmart. Granted, they'll usually have very limited quantities (with the Wii, they only had four sent from Nintendo), but you should be able to snag a 3DS if you go around opening time and make a beeline for the electronics section.

    Staples is also a good alternative. Dunno what it's like in the States but in Canada no one thinks to go there. It's almost painful working there and just seeing things sit around.

    Now whether Staples gets them on launch is a whole other story.

    This is true. I went to K-Mart ONCE when they had a ton of games on sale HARD. Nabbed a few since they had so many.

    If it was closer, I'd go there more often.

    Just for the record, some/many/most Staples in the USA don't carry entertainment electronics of that nature. They do in Canada, I gather?

    Wish I lived near a K-Mart.

    ... Come to think of it, I don't think I've been inside of one, much less even seen one, for years. O_O

    Oh, yeah. Suppose it's because there's less stores into that market around here. Staples Canada's main focus is electronics. Although it's rather poor support for video games.

    Hey I got my Wii from Pathmark, they had a bundle for like 300$, trust me, don't reseved it at gamestop after today, you most likely won't get one. You can also check Boscovs, that's where I got my 360 from, you can also buy online, alot of sites don't charge tax but do on shipping, you'll pay about the same, and will have to wait like tree days but you wontt have have to wait like 3 months.
