    Just opened the packaging, it's smaller than I anticipated and the blue tint is a really funky shiny colour, I like it. I just chucked it in the charging cradle, I'll give it a go after lunch.

    After a rough start, things are looking good for the 3DS thanks to Super Mario & Mario Kart...

    Vooks.net (Australian game site):

    "We dont get sales from Nintendo Australia often, but when we do its because theyve got something worth telling us about.

    Today Nintendo Australia has announced that the Nintendo 3DS has now sold through more than 200,000 units. It is now the fastest selling console to reach this mark coming in at 37 weeks. Its not only beat all other handheld consoles but also all over home consoles as well. Impressive!

    That means that the Nintendo 3DS is has gotten off to even better start than the DS and Wii in Australia. The DS didnt start selling well though really until a couple of years into its lifetime. The Wii however was hot out of the gate so its great to see it do well. Nintendo sold 520,000 Nintendo DSs in 2010 and in February it had topped 3 million sold. Lets hope the 3DS can get close to there sometime in its life!"

    The idea is great (to play 3DS games on a cheaper non-3D console), but that ish looks awful.

    The design is a failure, for me. It looks hideous and takes too much space.
    I don't get why Nintendo is unveiling this. It's a pointless release, especially since the 3D can be deactivated on the 3DS... Well, it's cheaper and it would be a much better and safer pick for kids, at least.
    They should focus on the WiiU instead, though. The underperformance is real.

    Nintendo cuts price of Wii U video game console

    With the launches of rival devices Xbox One and PlayStation 4 looming, Nintendo is chopping the price of its struggling Wii U video game console.

    Nintendo announced the Deluxe version of the Wii U will sell for $299.99 starting September 20. The bundle includes a black Wii U console with 32 GB of storage, the tablet-style Gamepad controller and a copy of the game Nintendo Land.

    Basic bundles of the Wii U which included no game and an 8 GB hard drive will no longer be manufactured.

    ^ Oh, I didn't know about that. That's a welcomed initiative.
    It could address the situation a little bit, but they should also innovate as far as games are concerned. It's almost always about the same series which barely change and become too predictable so they should keep that aspect for those who are accustomed to this while bringing some originality and thus, new fans.

    I was planning on buying a 3DS XL to play the new Pokemon games (I own a DSi), but it always felt like a waste of money, because I detest the 3D, so this might be a good option.

    Wasn't $299 the release price though? Cause it's still a stupid price to be paying for such a stupid console.

    Nintendo 2DS is an even bigger joke.

    My 3DS is an XL. It's pretty darn big But it was the exact same price as the normal one, so why not.

    And WTF at that 2DS, what's the point seriously. Just buy the 3DS and don't use the 3D, you can turn it down. I hardly use the 3D on mine cos I only have like one game that can use it. I just upgraded cos my DS was coming to the end of it's life (I had it since 2007).

    I think the 2DS is pretty much on sale for the younger generation. Their parents are probably afraid of the 3D effect, so it's a good solution for them. It's also cheaper.

    And it's released on the same day as the new Pokemon games. So it's actually a pretty nice marketing strategy..

    with extra buttons and 2nd analog stick, plus exclusive games that won't work on the older models like Xenoblade Chronicles

    I swear I thought about to buy one again. I'm glad, I didn't do it yet.

    Although the western countries will be able to buy the new 3DS in 2015.
