Yes they said March at the latest. Which is why the pessimist in my says, MARCH.

Sure it's smarter to release before the holidays. But didn't Nintendo release DS after the holidays in the US?

The best release date would be: 10/10/10

That would be the perfect birthday present!!!

I got enough games to play at the moment (and other things to do besides playing video games) so i persnally wouldn't mind having to wait a bit for a better made console.

How do we know what Nintendo meant by that? Perhaps Nintendo means it will be available EVERYWHERE no later than March 2011? The US would likely get it before Europe, too, since that's how it usually is.

No I'm pretty sure they meant it by it will be available worldwide by March. Which also means "it might not release anywhere before 2011".

And Megaman, I think the console is finalized. It will not be any "better" if they wait. The only reason they would wait is that the launch games are not ready and finalized yet in time for the holiday launch. If they can finish the launch games they want to be launch games and get them manifactured and ready to be in stores I'm sure they would prefer pre-holiday release.
