I would like one, but I don't know if I would use it enough to justify the cost

My kid has a 3DS. Me? If I get a replacement for my PSP, it'll probably be a tablet.

Yes, but more so because of Fire Emblem and Zero Escape than Pokemon. Just waiting for some new XL colors.

I will probably end up getting both. I want Zero Escape and Ace Attorney games, but I also want Persona 4 Golden.

Why would you want a kiddy nintendo handheld when you could get an amazing gaming console created by the almighty Sony?

I got one after the first price drop and honestly, aside from Ocarina - the game picked up when I bought the 3DS - I haven't so much as turned the thing on in many months. I guess I just like to buy every gaming device so I can have an opinion on it. Basically, I confirmed that a low res 3D handheld isn't my favorite option for gaming. Pokemon certainly does nothing to change this sentiment.

Don't forget and used in heaven. The south park psp episode. After ascending to Heaven, Kenny learns that God had created the PSP to search for what the angels call "our Keanu Reeves" the person who can command his legions against Satan's forces of Hell in a video game" http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Best_Friends_Forever_(South_Park)

Getting one within the next few weeks. XY pretty much forces me.

Getting Super Mario 3D land, OoT 3D and a few eshop games once I get one.

I had a launch 3DS, sold it for a launch Vita...but with the announcement of Pokemon I am considering buying a 3DS again (not going to sell my Vita though).

Animal Crossing: New Leaf and Pokemon Y would keep me more than busy, and I think those two games alone would justify getting a 3DS again. Which is a good thing, cause nothing else the 3DS has seems to interest me.

As soon as they announce a good looking limited edition 3DSXL (like the yellow pikachu version) in NA, I'll get one.

I'm getting an XL later, probably around the time X/Y releases. meanwhile my 3DS backlog has grown large and will continue to do so throughout the year.

Just to give you perspective, 80 hours into Nintendo Land (going for 100%), haven't even started Xenoblade / Pkmn Black 2, planning on tracking down Pikmin 1 & 2 for Wii before the third releases.

I'm overwhelmed right now.

I already did, and I regretted it.
Traded it for an iPhone. Plus I never got into Pokemon sadly

Just got rid of mine... Actually. Just nothing interesting. Got it for Kingdom Hearts and haven't anything on it since. Haven't seen anything interesting announced, so I gave up. Last Pokemon game I played was Diamond and Pearl and Gold and Silver were the last ones I really really liked. There comes a point when you just have to say no. I'm done with Pokemon. No disrespect to those who do like it but Pokemon didn't go in the direction I wanted too, or really it felt like it didn't go any where.

I'm getting one as soon as the wife lets me spend the money on it. She's made me cut back on my games spending. And with three kids and the fourth due in April, doubt it will be anytime soon. Trying to convince her that we need a Wii U come tax returns.

Already got one last year on November. Best Buy had a good deal I couldn't pass it up. I was waiting for a White XL but I'm happy with the blue. It looks way better than I thought it would.

I got one and played six games. I've decided I don't like it much, but if Bravely Default or Shin Megami Tensei IV ever came out here, I'd get back to it.

I got my 3DS in November last year as well at Best Buy. It was on sale for $149.99 with a free $30 dollar gift card with the purchase. I also got the blue XL from Best Buy this year when it was on sale for $159.99 a couple weeks ago which I think is a really good deal. I don't really like the blue, but it'll do. I wish I could have had purple or white.
