Should I cancel my 3DS preorder?

#1btbamfan89Posted 8/23/2011 7:40:09 PM
I preordered the new red 3DS that comes out next month, and also purchased two games and a case, one game which I already received (and opened due to being impatient :-p); Now I'm reading rumors about Nintendo releasing a new, better version of the 3DS, and I'm starting to question my purchase. Should I cancel and wait for an announcement, or just get the red one and deal with it if a newer version gets released? I'm really torn up about this. D:

Go ahead if it'll make you feel more secure, the rumors could be true or false.

If they're false just go pick one up, the red ones come out on the 9th right? The "Nintendo Conference" is on the 13th so not a long wait to find out tbh.

I know that's why it's a rumor lol, I just hate how Nintendo likes to release new, better versions of handheld systems right after another. And I want to make sure it's worth my dough, ya dig?

Go ahead and cancel, then wait and see what happens. If the rumors turn out to be false, just buy it again. No harm in being sure.

$170 for the 3DS, which includes release date shipping, so I'd receive it the day it comes out. I also bought OoT, Dead or Alive, and a beastly case which only cost me around $70. I decided to cancel my preorder, I'm sure I can wait a few days after the red system gets released to see what Nintendo announces, and if the rumors prove false then I'll just pick one up at the store. Seems like a fool proof plan to me, lol

What $70 case are you talking about? That thing must be bulletproof.

Oh haha I meant that the two games plus the case all came to $70; the case was $17.99.
