    I'm going to wait and see if one has a better pre-order bonus (if they have any) but I'd go with Amazon. I've had experiences of them delivering early in the past

    My problem with digital is that freaking Nintendo doesn't work like Steam, imagine my 3DS for some reason breaks? I love everything because the only way to get something from one DS to the other is a system transfer even though the games we have are registered in Nitendo webiste.

    I know they are doing so you don't basicly go toa friend 3DS, log your nintendo account and download trhe game for free for your friend but still, they could work some kinda of system.

    Aren't all games downloaded to the SD card? Can you not just switch the SD card with another 3DS?

    I'd also like to know exactly how digital games on 3ds work, then I finally might decide what to do.

    I heard that when you lose your 3ds (you probably also use your sd card than too) or break your 3ds you lose your games. But what if your 3ds breaks and your sd card doesn't?

    I don't break my consoles easily though so I may just download them anyway.

    I believe it saves to the console memory some part so you can't do that, but I'm not sure.

    Well yeah, I'm not 100% sure of it either but I believe the info is saved on the console memory.

    I never broke a console either but it can happen, I still have my GBA and GBC, working but accidents happen.

    Well my visa expires just before the release
    So I had to contact amazon and they came up with the solution of buying a gift voucher and using that since they last for a year
    So I'm going with amazon, pre order it tomorrow

    Also who has their 3DS
    I went out and got one shortly after the first announcement
    Sold my DSI after that.



    October 12th cannot come quick enough,
    maybe 13th for me, let's hope express delivery works well, had a problem with white2 last time

    Just wondered if anyone has commented on the fact the games will be multi-regional this time round. Meaning you can play whichever language you want on the one cart.
    Now in the past I have always imported the Japanese version in order to get all the Wifi events that we never get here in the UK. But if we're all going to have the same game this time does that mean we will get access to all the events regardless of country If so I'll be really happy!!! Although I can see them still having it set so you need to play in Japanese to get the event in which case I'll be getting a spare cart just to do events lol.

    If its a worldwide release I would imagine the events will be worldwide as well. All at the same time. It depends coz If the events are movie based coz they havent said if the movies are going to be worldwide as well.
    CASUAL REMINDER: I'm Back. Not that anyone cares.

    My plan as of now is to get X hopefully on the same day it comes out, and to put Y on my birthday/Christmas wishlist. I am not going to do the downloads. I like hard copies of stuff (except for music. I am weird like that).

    I'm seeing a lot of people speculating when their pre-ordered games will arrive, but isn't it common to get pre-order games a couple of days beforehand? I got my copies of Black & White, Black 2 & White 2, Heart Gold and Soul Silver and Platinum before release date.

    You have been lucky, I've only once got my pre-ordered game on it's release date (which happened to be Assassin's Creed III).

    A national record store which sells games. It only exists here, though.

    I can understand not getting them beforehand, but not getting them release date seems pointless. Isn't the entire point of pre-ordering to be able to play the game as fast as possible?

    I don't think I'll ever be able to eShop anything. I NEED the hard copy in my hands. It's just this thing. Also the box. I love to have a display of all my Pokemon games' boxes. And the booklets that come with the game, oh god when I can't play I read those.

    If you spoil the games, I will actually kill you. I will find you. I will go all Liam Neeson on you. I swear.

    I'll PM you the details!

    But kidding aside, I do find it strange that it isn't usual in other countries to get pre-ordered games beforehand, but perhaps the situation here will change when it is a world-wide release. Previously everything was known when the games were released here, so somebody getting them a few days early didn't hurt.

    I'm buying Y off the eshop in order to get it at midnight and play it right away. And since my 3ds will be newly bought by then, I'll have a warranty.

    I'm actually more excited about the games being a worldwide release rather than most features themselves, because I'm incredibly excited to battle you all on the PSS and share the experience without having to worry about being spoiled. So if some people do get the game early and start spoiling, I hope you all will keep calm and simply ignore.

    So basically, I'm more excited about sharing the experience with everyone at the same time rather than all the stuff that has been revealed.

    I just checked with the company I ordered the games from, and their policy is to ship pre-ordered games 2 days before release date. I live in the city which the company ships from, so naturally I get the games before release date.
