"2010 will be remembered as the year that 3D technologies finally became available on a consumer level, a breakthrough that NAMCO BANDAI Games has anticipated with its significant research and investment in the field over recent years," said Shin Unozawa, Vice President, NAMCO BANDAI Games Inc. "We are convinced of the potential of the new stereogram technology on which the hardware is based, and we intend to make full use of it to provide fresh new experiences which continue to surprise and excite our customers in the way we have been doing for many years. We are looking forward to announcing more details in the near future."

Could be talking about 3D TVs, but since this is about 3DS games, maybe they inadvertently stated that the 3DS will be coming in 2010 =)) Maybe, maybe!

As long as it doesn't come out next Spring. My wallet wouldn't be able to handle the 3DS, all it's games, AND Marvel vs. Capcom 3

It releases in Japan this year.

It does have the possibility to release everywhere by the end of 2010, but it's far more likely to be early-mid 2011 before it's release outside of Japan.

I've read that Nintendo is trying to have the 3DS release in late 2010, in Japan. In America, next Spring.

It is this reason that I'm hoping it comes out in 2011 <_<;; Too many things between now and Christmas 2010, and purchasing a 3DS means bye-bye to almost all of them.

Yup. Remember the DSi and XL launches.

...so what?

I'd hope for a worldwide simultaneous release in time for Christmas.
If not, I hope it at least releases in America and it's import-friendly <.<

It would be sweet, but I just don't see the 3DS being released in 2010. I think early to mid 2011 is much more likely.

I'm hoping by June 7, 2011. That's my wife and I's third anniversary.

i pray its either this winter(I.E. November or later) or early next year(march maybe?) because with a new phone, and some killer games coming out this fall my poor wallet couldn't handle anything but a late this year-early next year launch(who am i kidding, im not even going to be able to get my hands on this thing til 6 months after launch, if the launch goes anything like the Wii).
