    Do you think the 3ds will be released before christmas? Here is an article saying stuff like that :
    GameStop Adds 3DS to System and Sets November Release Date
    Could gamestop be right. They are one of the top five gamesellers amd make millions of euro. Could they be right about the date?

    They're going to release it before Christmas. The holiday season is a great time to release systems.

    It should do. Kinect is out this year and PlayStation Move is already out. Nintendo need to push something out this year for Christmas.

    It will defiantly be released this year in at least Japan or US, Europe always get it last.

    I though that was Australia that got it last. Well, all the countries other than Japan and the US always get it late anyways. Poor European and Oceanic people :(

    Yh I think they got it last, but I guess they always release it in the 3 major territories first.

    Its like Brazil, they only got the PS2 last November and they got the PS3 officially this August.

    With alll the info and rumors I do think it will be released for Christmas, and I deeply hope it is true, but sadly we have to wait until September 29th.

    OMG, that's cruel. It looks that Sony don't want brazilian money :D But for sure who wanted PS3 earlier they bought it on ebay or other kinds of internet buying. Also I bet that some people brought PS3 to Brazil from USA at the time it was released to sold there and make some money.

    At least 10 days! :D

    I Really Really Really x999 hope they do as it would be good for everyone. It would be good for Nintendo as they would get huge sales from the christmas sales and it is good for fans as they can play it before the new year everybody would be happy so why wouldn't they release it before then. Unless they can't manufacture enough consoles to meet demand then it would the Nintendo Wii all over again :):cool::D

    Hopefully they don't rush it just to release before the holiday rush. As long as they don't rush it though, it's fine if they release it before the holiday season.

    As long as it isn't rushed and they have a great launch line-up and they have enough units available, thats all that matters.

    Even if majority of games come a few months after the launch it's okay, just as long as it has 1 Killer game on day 1.

    I really hope so. I want the 3DS badly. It makes sense from Nintendo's point too as they can use the holiday rush to make sure every last one is sold.

    Has anyone noticed that they stopped airing the DSi commercials back in July? (Then again, I haven't watched much TV besides sports lately)

    We don't get much Nintendo adverts here in the UK anyways, except for Christmas time.

    We canceled our cable subscription up north here in Canada.

    Yes, I think the 3DS will be out in time for Christmas. It would be stupid for Nintendo to miss the chance to smash Sony and Microsoft's little game of Wii Catch-Up by rubbing the 3DS in their face during the time when people are willing to buy bigger electronic products than during the year.

    Then again like I said, the DS came out in Europe in March and still sold very well.

    If someone wants it, they will just keep their money in hand till said date.

    The 3DS will probably sell better though if a holiday release is slated.

    Again...

    Europe = February-March 2011
    US = Late November- December 2010
    Japan = Mid November-December 2010

    I called it first and I will refer to it If I'm correct.

    If I'm wrong I will eat my words.

    Europe got the DS ion March too and Nintendo said it will be out by March for a reason, why so much of a gap?

    I've always wondered why Europe always gets everything so late, but luckily I live in North America, so I think I'll have a 3DS before Christmas.
