If it's any use I'm genuinely pleased with the 3DS. I never expected the 3D effect to be more than a gimmick but I find it is a really neat trick and I've enjoyed it a lot. In some games (Zelda, Mercs, DOA) the graphics feel like a significant step up from the DS. At the new price I think it's a steal. Seriously the device needs some love.
There are downsides. If you get one I'd recommend a top screen protector and leaving a cloth (or the film that comes with it) between the screens when closed because the bottom screen border leaving little marks and scratches is an issue. The main negative I see is that stores here (UK) don't seem to be behind it. At my local GAME the 3DS is tucked in a corner and the games selection is tiny (only a subset of the games that have been released). If enough people buy it at the new price though that can change.
That's my view anyway. The redesign that everyone's talking about will come eventually (although I doubt the control layout will change drastically) but it's very unlikely to be announced this year because they won't want to give anyone a reason to be put off picking up the current 3DS at the new price during holiday season. So if you fancy one I'd say treat yourself :-)
CCCCCCCCC its so freaking funny hoe a lot of people are talking about the 3DS redesign and practically going like this http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9fEjJ4Ecy9Q&list=FLiqm1mdkgkEfheJJ__-T74A&index=13&feature=plpp --- Bring Fire Emblem: Shin Monshou no Nazo Hikari to Kage no Eiyuu to America

http://www.gamefaqs.com/boards/997614-3ds/60078137 ^ Starts off lame, but it gets so derailed it's really funny. Even some serious posters went in for some sarcasm- it was great.
There was a few more such as most of PhantomSword's topics. He normally finds news quick. And there's a couple topics that start off lame but pick up. Such as that one about the OP being embarrassed to play a DS, but proud to play a PSP.
EDIT: This one leads to a different board, but asks about people's thoughts on a game that uses all the Links from the Zelda series:

D. It's okay for laughs some times. I'd rather just talk about 3DS stuff that actually exists and ignore all the fad topics. --- "Satellite from days of old, lead me to your access code!" - Radical Ed Petitions annoy me.
