    Yeah, I´m pretty sure it will. I have a feeling that Nintendo will announce the price and release date for NA and Europe during NYCC. And like Japan, it will be able for pre-order as soon as they announce it.

    *Sigh* I really want it to, but I don't think it will, since they said they need more time to produce more. We waited two years to get a Wii, and I think Nintendo knows no one wants another shortage of the console coming!

    The 3DS isn't being released till March 2011 in America's and Europe/UK (February for lucky Japan) so even if you can pre-order it before Christmas (which may happen depending on when the exact price and date for outside Japan is revealed) you won't get one until March.

    It's a dam shame as 3DS would be an amazing gift.

    You should make this a poll! I think the 3DS will be available to preorder just before Christmas so it isn't completely overlooked during the holiday season. KaKa, when is NYCC?

    And by "we" in "We waited two years to get a Wii" I meant "we" as in "our family".

    Made it a poll for you guys. I think Nintendo will do this and let us pre-order it early. I mean, why not?

    thx for making it a poll. i think it would be smart to pre-order it before christmas so you can get it as a late christmas present as most people only get money at christmas (i mean kids )

    I think they will as I asked in my local game store and they said they should have a pre-order code within the next few weeks and to keep asking weekly about it :)

    I'm not even going to pre order it now, I'm more interested in windows Phone 7 and my Samsung Galaxy S then the 3DS.

    I might not even get the 3DS ever, it looks so lack luster to me now the Hype has faded away and the smoke has cleared.

    ^You've lost interest? Is it because of the Epic game thing, or the disappointing release date? How is it a lackluster console, anyways?

    If you're going to get a phone and you already have a recently bought phone, don't just go and buy another one. The same reason applies for buying game consoles and handhelds.

    I voted no on the poll. I would like to be able to pre-order as soon as humanly possible but I think Nintendo might hold back pre-orders till after christmas. Possibly to ensure sales of they're holiday releases are not diluted and/or due to supply concerns.

    Yeah, we all now know that the 3DS probably won't be available before Christmas. I think it will be available to preorder, but they will not advertise the system until after the holidays so that they don't take away from DS sales.
