  1. Nintendo's much-anticipated 3DS gaming handheld had a stellar debut in Japan this weekend, selling close to 400,000 units in just two days while the top selling launch title Professor Layton and the Mask of Miracle moved around 120,000 copies during the same timeframe. Although stocks are reportedly dry for now, more units will inevitably arrive in the week as Nintendo tries to reach its target of 1.5 million units shipped in Japan and 4 million worldwide by March 31.

    For me to actually consider purchasing this, I will personally need:
    1.an established library
    2.good reviews of the hardware beyond initial impressions
    3.XL version
    4.price drop

    So I'll be getting this when the 4DS comes out. Nintendo 4DS:Bringing you incomprehensible gaming, on the go!

    Any company that says their product is "unhackable", or that it "will be foolproof to cracks from illegal downloaders", is just asking for it to be hacked.

    It was probably nintendo's plan. Tell people it's unhackable and watch as all the hackers run out to try and be the first to hack it. Nintendo isn't stupid, and it's a great way to increase sales.
