I bought mine on launch day simply because I love Nintendo handhelds. I realize some people hold out for certain games lr price drops, what was your reason?

$99 in 2011 and it's a Nintendo handheld. Wish it had more great games, it's easily the most disappointing system I've ever owned.
Playing Virtue's Last Reward before 999? Don't. Please, for the sake of everything, don't. My crusade around the internet to spread this truth goes on.

The early price cut Target did that let me get it for $170 and still get the Ambassador games
The only decent thing to come out of the console wars are the funny photoshop pics

Haven't owned a handheld since the original Game Boy Advance. Suddenly decided I wanted one.

Was actually leaning towards getting a Vita, but then I came to my senses.

The d-pad on my ds broke 3 days before for 3ds launch so I picked up a 3ds instead of a new ds.

I learned Harvest Moon had come out for the 3DS, which got me interested. Then I looked up what sorts of games there were available and found a few that looked pretty neat. I came onto GameFAQs and checked out the 3DS board, and got interested further. Then the pink 3DS XL was announced, and I was sold.

Nintendo was offering a special bonus for people who bought both a Nintendo 3DS XL system and Pokémon Mystery Dungeon: Gates to Infinity or Luigi's Mansion: Dark Moon. Anyone who registered a Nintendo 3DS XL system and either Pokémon Mystery Dungeon: Gates to Infinity or Luigi's Mansion: Dark Moon with Club Nintendo between March 21 and April 30 received a code to download one of five Nintendo 3DS games for free: Super Mario 3D Land, Professor Layton and the Miracle Mask, Art Academy: Lessons for Everyone!, Star Fox 64 3D or Freakyforms Deluxe: Your Creations, Alive!. I bought Pokemon Mystery Dungeon: Gates to Infinity along with my Pikachu 3DS XL and I regret not buying Luigi's Mansion instead. To make matters worse, I chose Star Fox 64 3D instead of Professor Layton and I often regret my choice.
