Who's also hoping for a later 2010, early 2011 release date?

Didn't Nintendo say that the 3DS would be out during this fiscal year when they announced it? I know companies can't be held to early promises like that. But seeing how far along they were already now at E3 it wouldn't be surprising if it came true.

Although since they haven't announced a release date at E3 yet, I'm betting closer to the end of the fiscal year, so early 2011, rather than in 2010. And that is most likely for a release in Japan rather than North America or anywhere else. So it could be even a holiday 2011 release else where, although I greatly hope not.

in the iwata asks interview with miyamoto, miyamoto says it's finally complete.

i know this doesn't mean it will be out tomoroow but surely it's not too far off then.

It'll definitely be out this year, I'd say. While recent years have shown that games can sell very well outside of the holiday season, I doubt that Nintendo will want to test that idea with a new system. There are a variety of factors why, most notably (IMO) the tendency for people to gift games as well as systems (or to get gift cards with which they might buy more games).

I imagine that the launch will be a bit sparse, given that such is the trend with every system. I would not be surprised if OoT were the major launch title, along with something like Nintendogs + Cats. Nintendo will want to launch with a casual-friendly title if they want to appeal to that demographic. They've lost a lot of ground to the iPhone and need to make it up. I expect that we'll see some 3DSWare titles at launch too, probably ports of Apps.
