3DS Launch Date May Be Sooner Than We Think…

Undoubtedly one of the best parts of the 2010 Nintendo E3 Press Conference had to be the reveal of the 3DS. It looks like Nintendo’s going to learn from some of its mistakes and have a really great lineup set up for the platform, and the technology is definitely one of a kind and is going to be setting the bar another rank up as Nintendo often does.

News came in this morning, however, that could indicate the platform’s long-rumored release date. A tweet by a manufacturer was posted this morning stating the handheld was going to be released in November for Japan. While this does not mean the handheld will come out in America at that time, the fact that Nintendo’s getting it out in time for the Christmas rush could be a good signal that they’ll cash in on America’s huge holiday season. Time will have to tell though, at least we have been confirmed by Nintendo that the handheld will in fact be released by March of next year.

    I doubt it will be in this year. I am thinking holiday season of next year. Either way, we will know soon as they will officially give us a release date (along with a price) on the 29th.

    They had said it was going to be released before March, so that really means it’s going to be a Christmas or an early year sale, and Nintendo would be stupid not to go with the Holiday. (That is assuming the console is finished.)

    The 3DS is amazing. But a launch this year i highly doubt. They just released the DSiXL a few months ago. We dont need another DS right now.

    Yeah but although we got the DSiXL it’s still the same platform as the DS, and we’ve had it for the past decade it seems. It’d be a great business decision for the company, plus the difference between it being released in December and in March really isn’t that long of a time span.

    I so need to save up for this thing. I dont give a crap what it does all I care about is Kingdom Hearts 3DS that is coming out for it. After I played it that thing is probably going into a drawer and never seen again

    There are a lot of really cool releases coming out for it that I’m pretty excited for. I’ll probably wait and check out their whole lineup and reviews for the device before I get one, but I don’t see myself getting one if it’s more than $200/$250.
