This is more a question of whether or not I should get one now, or wait until the price drops. How long it's going to take for the price to go down is a factor and I don't know how long that will take.

I want opinions and input.

Personally, I'm waiting until Ocarina of Time 3DS comes out.

One thing I forgot to mention is that I don't currently have a DS due to mine mysteriously disappearing.

I can tell you right now that knowing Nintendo there isn't going to be a price drop any time soon. This got more pre-orders than the Wii did, why would they drop the price?

This is semi-serious btw. It's something that seems strange to me. You'd think that entire species would cease to exist if other ones evolved from them."

I'm buying it now because I doubt I will be able to get my hands on it for a while when the gams I actually want will be out. Seriously they made sh!t launch titles, just sh!t.

Also, I don't know about you, but I think it looks sort of like... "We're going to make this look sort of clunky so we can put out a slick looking one later for more sales."

Go look at the first generation DS, if you don't know what they look like. I don't want to get stuck with the 3DS equivalent of that. :(

A Nintendo employee in an interview or something said that the 3DS is currently packed with gizmos, and they used all of the space-saving tricks in the DS Lite and DSi in the 3DS.

True, I'm probably better off buying a used DS now for cheap and a newer version of the 3DS a in a while.
