Nintendo Australia announces that the lavender-pink Nintendo 3DS will be available Down Under from November 17.
During the Nintendo 3DS briefing in September, Nintendo announced that the stereoscopic console would be getting a pink makeover. Initially, the House of Mario only announced the lavender-pink Nintendo 3DS for Japan, but since then, it has trickled it into the other regions.
Now it's Australia's turn, with Nintendo Australia confirming that the lavender-pink Nintendo 3DS will be coming to Australia on November 17. The new color combination will sell for the regular price point of A$249.95.
I like that their making new colors. Would have been if more were there at the start but i like my Aqua Blue.
Big deal. Those of us who have one probably won't buy it again for a new paint job, and it's hardly a feature that will make buyers out of people who had no interest previously. Too little, too late, Nintendo. How about announcing some more decent games instead? Honestly, sometimes I wonder if Nintendo will even survive the next console generation. By the time the Wii U is released, Microsoft and Sony will have released systems with more power and better graphics than the wii u (unless Nintendo desides to make it do more than 1080i/p). Not to mention the difficulty of implementing the tablet into third party games. I hope we don't get a repeat of the wii again; inferior hardware and software, with mandatory gimmicks that make third party support difficult and undesirable, resulting in a mountain of shovelware crap. I really don't know how they can justify releasing new wii games for $80-100 when the graphics, online and other features pale in comparison to PS3 and X360 exclusives. Again, I hope they get it right this time. Improve graphics further, add more features (how about the ability to play dvd movies?), and make the tablet optional. And create controller ports so that we won't have to rely on batteries the whole time. /endrant.
