Is it worth $170?

I'd say it's definitely worth 170$. If you don't have a DS, it's worth even more!

The DS and PSP are both outstanding systems. Wally the Equality Weasel says so.

Just out of curiosity, how many of you actually paid $250 for it and how many did your mommy and daddy pay $250 for it?

I paid just over $500 for mine on a premium to import it from Japan at launch and I don't regret it.

It's by far my favorite Nintendo handheld so far. I have close to 10 or so non-shovelware 3DS games for it and a bunch of VC and 3DSware titles on-top of my backlog of over 100 DS games.

My point was how many people here spent their own $$$ for a 3DS and how many spent someone else's money for it? Value has a different meaning if it is coming from your OWN pocket.

At this point in time, I'd say no. When the issues with 3DS are fixed with a hardware revision, yes.

Yeah, let's wait 2 years + just for some fixes, and miss out on the great games coming out this year.

It's not like the games are going to disappear two months after release...
Also, it's not going to take 2 years for a hardware revision.

First off, yes it will. Seeing how the 3DS was only released in March. I seriously doubt Nintendo is making a revision right now. Also, just because the games aren't going anywhere, doesn't mean you have to miss out on them for the time being.

Perhaps you did not hear me, so I'll shout:

I HAVE OVER A YEAR OF DS BACKLOG.

Why should I get a 3DS *NOW*? What "GREAT" games are there now or the near future? I'm missing out on nothing.


You do know my post wasn't even directed at you that time right?...

Honestly, there's no games right now. If you don't get the 20 free games + the $170 price, I would just wait until early next year. I just beat Zelda a few nights ago, and literally have nothing I want to play until Super Mario 3D Land in November. Even then, I don't know if I'll pick that up right away because Skyrim comes out a few days later and would rather spend my money on that.

Were it not for the lower price AND the 20 free games, I would have waited.

Although I got mine at launch, I think the price should've been reduced from the beginning, when you consider all of its design flaws.. //
