Yeah, I just got a notice that my preorder is delayed by 3 weeks.
You mean until Thursday, April 21, 2011, you won't be able to get it, thanks to 3DS being sold out in an instant?

April 21? It's March 23 from the time I posted.
March 23? I thought you wouldn't be able to get your 3DS until Thursday, March 31, 2011, since you live in Australia, and that's the release date for Australia. Are you saying by chance you importing one? Then again, you wouldn't be able to play unless you import...it's region locked, btw.

Even the AT&T will be granting 3DS owners free access to over 10,000 hot spots, making Spot Pass easier.

For the lulz, I'd like to see Commodore64 games being emulated on the 3DS :p

Marth is not amused.

The built-in software and various games will be playable and if you visit the Demo Pods, you'll be able to make your own 3DS Mii character and upload it to your Facebook page via email using the on-site computers.

To find out more on the Augmented Reality games, head over to our Hands On feature article and see what Face Raiders and the other mini-games have to offer.

3DS eShop's May Launch to Ensure it Beats Wii and DS Shops

Posted Tue, 22 Mar 2011 by James Newton

Needs more polish

The 3DS eShop, one of the console's most anticipated functions, won't be available until May, and Nintendo's hardware head honcho Hideki Konno wants to assure you it's for a good reason: so it's good.

Speaking to Gamasutra, Konno admitted previous digital shopfronts for the Wii and DS haven't been up to the standard required, and the decision to launch the eShop in May is an attempt to get it right from the start.

Previous online shops for the consoles have been browser-based, but the new eShop will be a native application that combines shopping with promotional videos, demos and user ratings. Konno is keen for the application to create a big impact on users:

    And again, we're taking more time because we want to be able to create a system where a consumer sees a promotion and says, "Wow, that looks great!" Sees a game demo, game trailer, whatever it is, and says, "I want that!" And the ability to then say "Now I can purchase it right here without having to back out and go somewhere else" we want to provide that experience. So that's one other reason why we're not bringing it out with the system itself.

We wait to see how the eShop improves on previous Nintendo download storefronts when it's released in May.

Do you think the delay of the eShop was a good reason?
