    After the supply problems with Nintendo Wii, it might be a good idea to preorder if you want the 3DS the day it comes out. Will you be preordering or waiting to see if it really lives up to the hype before splashing out?

    Oh yes, I'm pre-ordering it the second it becomes available! Though...I was really lucky with my Wii and bought it at a store on day 2...

    Still, I'd prefer not to test my luck. I'll be getting as many games as I can with it!

    I don't believe you. Give us a link (or PM it to me; I'm Adam's editor, after all), please. It could make for big news and you'll get credit if it's true.

    There could be some place taking unofficial type pre-orders (if that means anything).

    Hmm, yeah, that looks like it's real enough. But I don't see them accepting pre-orders anywhere. It looks like it's just a placeholder for when the store gets the lowdown on the 3DS's price and release date (and of course, how many 3DSs Nintendo will be sending them to sell).

    I'll be buying one from the store, mostly because it makes an exciting day out!

    ...and also because I don't have a credit card.

    Meh. A lot of online stores accept debit and PayPal these days, so I don't think you need to limit yourself to a real store to get a 3DS. Then again, if you're lucky, you get to avoid both shipping charges and wait times.

    I'm pre-ordering as soon as I can, seriously, the second that pre-order button comes up, I'm clicking it!

    The money isn't an issue fortunately, so even if it's £300, I will buy it, tho I do hope the games are below £29, with the exception of a few games like LOZ:OoT.

    I've never pre-ordered anything like this, so would you guys think sites would be crashing and stores might be out like straight away, I would think so!

    That happened with the Wii, and the 3DS is bigger news than that, so I'd imagine that would be so. I remember that it took less than five minutes for an electronics store in my area to run out of Wiis after restocking. No, seriously. It was like that for about a year before the time went up to about an hour or so. They only started appearing regularly on our shelves at some point late last year...

    3lol.

    Judging by the results of this poll, pre-ordering early will be essential to get it on release day.

    I hope I get it straight away :(

    Play.Com and Amazon will be out straight away, so I might try GameStation or Game since they are a bit less known among people, I would hope?!?

    Eh, they're probably still known well enough to sell out real quick. Your best bet is to stay up really late obsessively refreshing the product page on the day they're expecting 3DSs to come in and have your credit card info saved so you don't waste valuable seconds entering it. :p In any case, you can be sure that we'll update the main site with a link the moment we see any place open up for pre-orders.

    If you bring your baseball bat, you might not have to buy it, just take it.

    Whoa, I didn't know Lolratings.com belonged to you, Adam! :p I'll start using it everywhere I go. ;)
    Technically, I'm in Switzerland right now, btw...

    Aww, come on, Qaiz! We all know that everything's more fun when you've got a baseball bat, right?

    Right?
