People have been going on and on about the 3DS's launch, but it wasn't so bad, the biggest problem is that the next set of games is taking so long to get here. It seems to me that this is about the time when they should have launched the system. If you took every game that's come out already (including Ocarina of Time 3D) and made most of them launch titles, it'd be quite a strong launch, and the rest of the upcoming releases should be enough to hold off until the holidays, when a ton of stuff is coming from Nintendo.


Of course, this will probably all get sorted out at holiday time, but it seems to me they would have done a bit better to launch the 3DS about 4-5 months later than they did.

Yes, it should've launched now at a price of $200 with a name that wasn't so similar to the DS. It probably would've been much more successful.

I don't think the name was really the problem. It's just been the lack of a compelling reason for most people to upgrade.

Most people I know thiught it's exactly like the DS, but with 3D. They didn't even know it has games specifically made for it.

Hasn't it sold close to 4 million? That's pretty good. I know it's lower than what they were hoping. Waiting longer is always going to be in our favor. I would have been fine waiting until this holiday season. But I was greedy and bought one at launch. I only owned an original DS, so I felt it was the time for an upgrade.

I dunno about waiting for the holidays, it's probably advantageous to get out ahead of Vita.
