Where's todays iPad article?
I'm getting withdraw symptoms....
People truely are morons
As everyone I know says it's crap, the 3D is not very 3D.
Of course it's nintendo, and people just buy nintendo, as they know no different.
Anyone else also notice El-Reg's fickle reporting here, when it's referring to PS3, they quote the highest price they can find (RRP usually), yet Nintendo gets the luxury of El-Reg shopping around for you to find the cheapest and less sensational price...

Truely <sic> moronic
Everyone you know says its crap? Its not even out here, how do they know? Seeing is believing, spouting unsubstantiated clap trap is, erm, trolling I guess.
"Of course it's nintendo, and people just buy nintendo, as they know no different."
Or they have years of experience of knowing that Nintendo deliver some of the most innovative and fun 1st party games on all of their platforms.

Amazon is cheapest
A quick search shows that Amazon is the cheapest retailer by at least a fiver. Perhaps this is why they have massive pre-orders?
Looked ok, but not paying £230, when its only $157 in the USA.
What about paying amazon £187 instead, like it says in the article?
No it isn't
Pay £187 on Amazon UK then. It's $249.99 on Amazon.com. Pretty much equal once you factor out UK VAT (£187=£155.83+20%, $251 at today's rate)
According to Amazon US, it is $250 (minus 1 cent).
I havn't been paying much attention, but is the 3ds region locked? As if it is I can't be bothered getting one until its cracked.
