3DS Pre-orders Now Available (If you live in the US)

Post by Supa Kirb XIV on January 12th 2011, 7:33 am

As I was picking up Kingdom Hearts Re:Coded from Gamestop today, (let me know if any of you guys got the game btw) The nice man at the register informed me that 3DS pre-orders were now being taken. So just a heads up to any of you who have are in the US and have been waiting to pre-order. Btw, I asked him about the price and he said that the official price was not on the pre-order information... which is kinda strange.. If you are pre-ordering something, shouldn't the full price be available for you to see? face palm

They should tell you the full price willingly, so that's odd that he wouldn't tell you. Anyway, I'll buying a 3DS and I don't care if anyone here hates Nintendo either.

I'm not too fussed by no known full price, the DS was $300 or
so on release so it probably won't be too different.

Maybe.

The price doesn't bother me; it's the features I'm looking forward to the most as well as the 3DS specific games that will be made, like The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword. Speaking of which, I wonder how production is going on that other Zelda game being made for the Wii...

But the battery is like... 3-5 hours

And they said in an interview that a "good portable device should have atleast 10 hours worth of battery usage"

Hypocrites at Nintendo, bleh

But the thing itself is quite impressive... even though I don't really lust for one.

3-5 hours is still pretty decent. So long as you don't play it excessively, then it's fine.

@Storm- Yeh, the last news I heard that it was half way done... and that was maybe a month or so ago...

@Eredale- Storm is right... 3-5 hours is alright. Like seriously, who sits playing a handheld more then 5 hours straight? I sure don't, I take a break maybe every 2-3 hours. Especially with the 3D you don't want to kill your eyes bro.

Uh, Storm? Skyward Sword is the Wii exclusive Zelda game.

Orcarina of Time is being remade for the 3DS.


3-5 hours is okay, it's not great, but it's okay.

I imagine they could release a 'plug in-able' battery to extend
the life of the system for long trips.

I can't play my DS on the go, I know that's a main reason to have one... But I just like to play it in my room. I can't focus when I'm on the go.

I'm pretty sure there's going to be a secondary battery they'll make once it gets enough profit in.

As for the new Zelda title, I saw a piece of art in a GamePro issue that had Link and some kind spirit floating behind him and him without his Master Sword and only the shield. If that's not Skyward sword, then it's most likely another Zelda title they're working on. Not sure if The Legend of Zelda: Valley of the Flood is the next one or even the actual name after Skyward and the 3DS port hit, but it sounds like it. Either way, Nintendo is the only one that can confirm it.

That is Skyward Sword art, you're not wrong, it sounds like
gamepro could have mislabeled the platform, which happens
sometimes with most game mags.

I haven't heard anything about Valley of the Flood though.


Fair enough too Supa Kirb, with me it depends on if I'm
required to do anything in transport or not. Razz

They might release a 3DSi with longer battery life and other stuff, you never know D:

Nah, that wouldn't be worth the investment. A DSi was already a bad idea; a 3DSi coming out will be even worse.

^^^^^

Made me lol.

I agree that we probably wont see a 3DSi, but I can guarantee a newer version will be made of the 3DS. Most likely a 3DS -lite. But I'm sure everyone who is skeptical on the 3DS will just wait for the lite...

A secondary battery that you can attach to the 3DS sounds more plausible and saves money, but knowing Nintendo, they'll probably make a XL version of it(which is stupid just thinking about it). A slightly larger screen doesn't mean much. I guess all of this is speculation until the 3DS actually hits, so I'll withhold judgment for now. I'll still buy one nonetheless.
