Release of original DS? pertains to 3DS release.

I have a fuzzy memory. If someone could remind me when the DS was first unveiled at E3 when they showed that Metroid Prime video. Did the DS come out in America THAT year during christmas? Or was it a year later.

I'm trying to figure out if the 3DS might come out at the end of this year, or if it's still a full year away and they won't release it until fall 11.

The most common thoughts are Holiday 2010, or Q1 2011.

I saw an interview on G4 about the 3DS. They did not give an exact release date but they did say it should be out before the end of March 2011.

I asked this earlier today. It was released the same year it was shown which everbody has been saying but it was given a release date as coming out later that year which it did. 3ds was not given a release date so it is not comparable.

That doesnt mean it will come out in march 2011, I remember they said this about the DS and so on, when announcing the release dates.

That means it will be out BY March 2011.
