I really am excited and I can't wait to play the 3DS. And I know it's going to be really fun when I first get the system and playing all those new games on a new exciting system. But something has me worried. With all the talk about future upgrades, I don't want to miss out on getting the better system.

So if I buy the 3DS at launch, and if an update happens to upgrade the system a bit be it pixel brightness or sharpness, can I still buy that and maybe use my 3DS as a trade in toward that?

I mean, if I buy a 3DS at launch, am I still able to purchase any system update in the future, or am I barred from ever being able to buy a newer version?

No, if you buy the 3DS they will take your fingerprints and ban you from banning a new one, ever.

Also, you will have to sign a contract when you buy your 3DS that doesn't allow you to buy a different Nintendo console for 3 years, not even the Wii's successor. You may buy one 3DS game per month, up to 5 per year.

I always, almost always wait. Never buy a console at launch, wait til the market gets satuarated with games first.

Others are putting random thoughts up so here's an honest answer

I have tha same concern as u. Nintendo did this with the ds and dsi. The upgrade probably won't be a bigger screen do to the fact that the 3ds allready has a large screen. It'll probably be a brighter enhanced screen. Decide if u want that. If so u must wait about a year to get a 3ds. Your 3ds will lose tons of value the second a new 3ds comes our so u either wait for a enhanced 3ds yo come or just buy the original 3ds. Don't worry about their not being games, they already have a dozen games in the works. Worst case, you play ds games for a month.
