Hopefully Nintendo learned their mistakes from the Wii launch

I'm doing the midnight release for this so I can care less, but Nintendo had a HUGE shortage for the Wii for a long while so I'm hoping they learn from their last mistakes.

And IF this thing is shipping in September, that's only 2 and a half months to make and ship a crap load of copies.

It's March 2011 at most.

And supposed to be October or so for Japan.
I'm hoping the same for the US, in time for the holidays.

He said if though...
But anyways, I hope it doesn't sell out either. And I'll do the midnight release if I can. But hopefully it'll be a holiday release instead of March or September.

Between now and march 2011, which nintendo would be dumb not to release it for the holidays. Type "September" in the search bar and one of the topics has a link to a magazine article saying the US is slated for a September release. The DS got to the States a month before Japan got theirs, so I can see this happening.

3DS is going to be the best portable ever and hopefully one of the best consoles ever.

A supply shortage at launch would be a GOOD thing for Nintendo, because the demand for the game is going to be there and they are going to sell out no matter what, but it will RAISE the demand of the system when people can't find it. The all of us gamers will go to whine about it on forums, the gaming media outlets will write up stories about it and the news media will cover it. It will drive up demand of consumers even more while keeping the system in the public eye and giving free advertising to Nintendo.
