    Who else has preordered this bugger or is getting it at launch and what games are you getting?

    Im getting quite excited about it now even though theres not a game I really want at launch!

    Anyway, Im getting the black one and splinter cell, which will probably be shit but you never know!

    I might give Nintendogs a try and will probably have a bash on Street fighter even though Im not that big a fan

    I read the OP and find myself wondering...

    "theres not a game I really want at launch"
    "splinter cell, which will probably be shit"
    "will probably have a bash on Street fighter even though Im not that big a fan"

    You pre-ordered why exactly?

    Because Im a sucker for a new gadget and if I dont get it Ill be pining for one.

    Even if I didnt get one at launch Id get one eventually so it might as well be sooneer rather than later.

    Anyway the AR stuff looks quite good

    I'm glad you're excited INSOMANiAC, but I have to echo Psychotext's sentiments that your first post didn't really convey your reasoning well. I think I get where you're coming from now though - you'd walk past shops selling them and think "I wish I'd got one!".

    It is a lovely piece of kit, even without other games it's all very nice - I saw you commented on the unboxing so I can see why you're enthusiastic! It is a nice gadget indeed, even on it's own you've got a couple of games and a 3D camera. Bit pricey for just that, but the games will still be there when you want them, and it'll be updated with the Virtual Console and browser soon enough.

    Theres also the fact you can play old DS games with the analogue stick, they obv arent designed for it but mario 64ds using it looked a lot better and itll be good to play Mariokart DS with a joystick

    So do I, but I have no sense so that's not hard.

    Almost forgot the thread title.

    What an odd comparison, clearly you enjoy 'man cum' more than some of us......

    Im preordering aswell. All the vids from japan this weekend has got me pretty hyped. I have only got Nintendogs preordered so far and really thats for the girlfriend as shes dog mad and we live in a rented flat. Managed to order it for ~23 combining Tescos 20%sale with a 5 off voucher.
    I am looking forward to having a go at all the inbuilt stuff and my old dslite broke so I have some DS games that I havent played in a while. I am going to wait for reviews and probably pick up one more launch title. SSF4 and PES are tempting, I own other versions but the new angles look good and being portable is convinient.

    I've preordered and having seen it instore and played with it I'm really looking forward to it. I have traded various games etc towards it which should cover the cost of the console and then I'll at least be able to pick up a couple of games. Pilotwings is definite, but yo-yoing between Nintendogs, Street Fighter IV and Ridge Racer (not sure why I want this but there you go)

    I was so excited about the original DS phat, pre-ordered, and then didn't have anything worth playing for MONTHS (ohhai Yoshi's Tech Demo DS) so not going to be burned by that again. still plan to get one eventually.

    I'd have to have another look to be certain, but I think I saw the 3DS pre-order in Sainsburys for 199.

    I've ordered one for my son. He turns 7 a week after release. His current DS is an original fat and we've resisted all the other upgrades over the years. Will pick up Pilotwings.

    Hmm. Starting to think I should maybe wait. None of the launch games really excite me except Street Fighter, which I have recently admitted to myself that I am utterly, utterly shit at and have no hope of every understanding it.

    My current DSL is sitting gathering dust, there's about 6-7 games that I know I want to get for it...maybe I should just play them first, wait another 6 months and pick up a 3DS when the library picks up...

    Plus, am about to move out the family home (finally!) and so am preparing to be horrifically skint...

    Mine too! Well 4 days after release.... Luckily being 7, their eyes won't burst out of their sockets with the 3D effect.

    I moved out of the family home about a year and half ago, horrifically skint is probably a good description. Thankfully fixed term on my mortgage ends May/June, should be at least 200+ a month better off; still not going to grab a 3DS then, though, probably wait until November when some company shares come through and hopefully a better selection of games by then.

    @DaM, I hope not. I take it these things have been extensively tested in sweat shops.
