    I'm on a lowly ds so may upgrade to a 3DS when it's released, I have a bunch of vouchers so wont have to spend much of my own cash!

    I really want to have a go on them? when is the release in the UK? I want to have a go on one of the game store trials :P

    25th march release!

    Sticking with my DS Lite for the time being, too much to spend on a handheld.
    Most of my favourite portable games are 2D and sprite based anyway

    Still looking forward to trying one out though.

    I'm too used to the dsi xl screen size, i really want to get one but i might wait for the 3ds xl, if it ever appears.

    wanted an XL for ages, could never afford one.

    You can pick them up for about £100 on fleabay, in very good condition.

    Every time i play on a regular ds, i just don't enjoy it as much as on an xl.

    i played it a few weeks ago, sf was really good and the augmented reality was amazing and different,kid icarus was fun but uncomfortable as the trigger was the left shoulder and you controlled him with the stylus,awkward but a fun game,played ridge racer but didn't do much for me,oh yeah and i ended up turning the 3d off as it was a pain in the ****.

    I ordered one today for the eldest......also ordered Nintendogs/Cats, Pilot Wings and Zelda : Ocarina of time. Looking forward to having a go myself.

    I have now pre-ordered my 3DS in Aqua Blue!

    I'm sticking with my Lite. The more important question is how many badges have you got in Pokemon?

    yeah i'm working during the day and was ill on sunday. making up for it now though! i'm gutted because i can't download Victini.

    i still need to check it out to see if its really worth its price tag

    My DS won't talk to my Virgin Media router so I can't get him either. Though I'm probably missing something obvious. I will keep trying to get them to talk to each other and claim my prize!

    But I can't see the 3DS making much difference to games like this, maybe in a couple of generations time, but not at this generation. Personally, I hope they have the labelling clear on the games which will only work on the 3DS sorted out, I find the Kinect games aren't always obvious when looking in a shop.

    I think I want one so therefore on the 25th March there will be an impulse purchase.

    Both kids have ds lites and literally havent touched them in months , son seen an advert for the 3ds and said '' ooh mum can i get one '' ?................not a chance , seems as they dont play with the ones they have got with @ 70plus games each , ..........wii, xbox, i pod have took over in this house

    Kinect games are easy to spot...........they have a big green bar in the top right hand corner with 'Kinect' in it..........non Kinect games are blank.

    And the plastic casing is purple as opposed to green.

    I'm getting old if I can't spot obvious things like that
