So now that you’ve had a few days to let the news of the 3DS sink in, how’s everybody feeling? In case you didn’t hear, Nintendo’s new glasses-free 3D handheld, the 3DS, has an official price and release date for the US. Those being $249.99 and March 27th respectively.
Personally I don’t see myself picking it up, at least not right at launch. The promise of Star Fox 64 3D is certainly tugging on my nostalgia strings. I must have invested at least a hundred hours on it. A game which took under an hour to run through from start to finish. Pilotwings Resort is another title that intrigues me. These are the types of games that make me wish I had the urge to devote more time to portable systems. But, I don’t. I’m much more likely to be found spending time playing games on my phone. That’s probably a bi-product of always having my phone with me. My DS tends to get an annual go-round each year at PAX. I don’t want to be caught as the only person not drawing a dick in PictoChat.
So what about all of you? Are you excited for the launch? Are there any games in particular that are swaying your decision?
