Nintendo 3DS comes out Sunday

Post by Parrotpaul » Fri Mar 25, 2011 9:41 am

I probablly will never buy one of these, but they just interviewed the North American president of Nintendo on CNBC, and, from what I heard and saw, it sounds like a great machine for about $250.....what next? They plan to sell millions this year alone.

Check it out....Nintendo 3DS

Nintendo has dominated handheld video games since the original gameboy. No one has able to really gain a sizable market share. Sony's PSP is much like apple computers to PCs nowadays. PSP is usually only able to stay in it because of the ability to hack it.

I haven't bought a handheld since gameboy color, I might pick up 3DS because of the backwards compatibility to play the new pokemon game which I hear is the best since original r/b/y.

My kids have had each of the Nintendo DS versions: DS, DSi ... and now all want the 3DS...

They've been reminding me of the launch date for some time now... even before there was a launch date and it was yet a concept.

Unfortunately, they ALSO all want a $180 IPod Touch and any other electronic piece that floats across their concsious mind.

I've told all of 'em, "you let me know when you save up the $_ _ _.00 and I'll drive you down to get it."

OF COURSE ... my son's birthday IS coming up in a few weeks... :-k
