People who bought it for $250

What situation would you prefer:

Option A: The 3DS stays at $250 1 year from it's launch, you are unaffected

Option B: The 3DS gets the $80 price drop after you buy it for $250, you get 20 free downloadable games.

Are you spiteful enough towards the general populace that you'd rather have everyone pay what you paid. Or are you happy you're getting 20 free virtual console games, just for buying your system, something you just did anyway.

I'd pick option A. I'd rather have the satisfaction of knowing less people have 3DS's, and that the people who do have a 3DS paid every cent I did for it. I want to live in a world where I don't get 20 free games unexpectedly, but I have the peace of mind that everyone had to pay $250 for it.

I'd also prefer less people have 3DS's anyway, lower adoption rates means feeling empowered and unique.

Really? I'd rather NOT be the only one in my city to have one.

Higher adoption rates means more people to play with.

If I were stuck on an island with Super Mario Galaxy 2 and Modern Warfare 2, I would play Super Mario Galaxy 2 first. People who agree: 224

I paid 250 because I wanted to have it in my hands as fast as possible. It was worth it IMO. If I get 20 free old games with that, I'm not going to complain (although I'm betting the ten other games we don't know yet are crap).

Ono suspects Mario could easily defeat M. Bison.

Less 3DS's sold = the system will fail.

Who cares about how "empowered and unique" you feel. I want the system to actually succeed, not fail.

Option C: I buy mine for $250 and whatever happens afterwards is a bonus / don't care.

I like the price drop and free games. I bought my 3DS on June 1st.

I'm clever, vaguely feminine, a vampire, and I wield Dice. PH33R.
The DS and PSP are both outstanding systems. Wally the Equality Weasel says so.

**** that, my opinion is the exact opposite of yours. I'm all for people getting free stuff especially when I get it too. I wouldn't want others to get less just cause I paid $250, and I want more people to have a 3ds, so anything that makes them buy it is good. The more it sells the better stuff nintendo will be motivated to make for it, add new features and support. Who wants a system that no-one else has if nintendo doesn't feel the need to support it just for that reason? A limited edition 3ds, on the other hand would be cool to own and feel exclusive about, but not the system in general.

empowered and unique ? If the 3DS does not sell well games will be cancelled left and right and then we'll see how empowered and unique you'll feel, more like weakened and lonely. Just be happy that more people are buying it.

Unique I understand.
Empowered you totally lost me on.
