Mine arrived today aswell. I find the box art to be a little bland though I like the look of the CD though.

You don't sign up for it really. You just had to have used the e-shop at some point before the price drop. Then you get 10 free NES games in September and 10 free GBA games later on this year.

I'm thinking of getting a 3DS again (when I get some money that is) but the whole region locking is fucking me over. I'm thinking I might be in Japan again next year, so if I buy it here I've only got a year to buy games, and if I buy it there I'll only be able to play them in Japanese... Anybody know if there's a work around to the region lock?

And if not, would I be better off gameswise getting one now or waiting? Embarassed

No way at the moment.

I'd say wait. There isn't a single game worth buying the system for right now.

I agree with yggy. The best game for the system is a 13 year old remake. Wait till Christmas when there is better games out.

I also agree with ygg, mario 3D iseout before christmas etc

unless you plan to spend alot of the next 18 months in Japan I would recommend buying and Irish/Pal model, Unless there is a japanese only title you really really want. just my 2 cents.

Also, I know this is a Nintendo site, kinda, but dont rule out the Ps Vita, the potential of the hardware is unreal, I just hope developers utilise all the different input methods the way the ds was originally and not just resigned to PS3 portable spin offs.

Yeah if I was only going to get one it would be the Vita. The Vita launch line-up looks much better than the 3ds:
LittleBigPlanet, ModNation Racers, WipeOut 2048, Ruin(its like Diablo or Torchlight and has cross platform play with the PS3) and Uncharted: Golden Abyss. They are the only ones I can remember but I think there are more.
Only problem is that its not out here till March 2012. Its out in Japan in November though.

Nothing solid yet, but I might be back in Japan next August for a year, so it's kind of touch and go... I could always just order Pal games online.

As for the Vita, I haven't been following it but I'd say the 3DS is cheaper after the price drop and that's a bit of a selling point for me. Razz

These are the 10 nes games that are being released in japan.


Super Mario Bros.
The Legend of Zelda
Ice Climber
Balloon Fight
Donkey Kong Jr.
Wrecking Crew
NES Open Tournament Golf (called Mario Open Golf in Japan)
Yoshi (known as Yoshi's Egg in Japan)
Metroid
Legend of Zelda II: The Adventure of Link

For me I would be very happy if this was the same games for us.
