And how is that in any way productive to the discussion at hand?

If it's destined to end up in your 'handheld graveyard' then wouldn't it make more sense to just not get one?

Precisely my point. Thank you.

In all, the online play setup is thus:

- One Friend Code per system, once entered they are added to your friend list and it covers all games

- If you pass someone on the street, you can automatically exhange FC's and add / dismiss them on your friend list (even if 3DS is in sleep mode)

- Can add unknown people through random matches (at least, SSFIV allows this)

- You can attach any normal name to yours or others Friend Code, so you know exactly who you are playing with (no need for "John2122" because "John" was taken)

- You can check in the home menu as well as in-game who in your friend list is online and what they are playing

Yes, but the damned things are tied to the console. I.e. you won't be sharing your 3DS with your kids, with them having a separate friends list. Very disappointing. It's like the just don't get it. Sigh.

EDIT: on a brighter note: Paper Mario. New Paper Mario. Not a remake. And portable. Yes!

EDIT2: big, big question: will you be able to use the browser to connect to public wifi that requires a browser login... and then play a game over that WiFi connection? You can't do that with the DSi because the browser is completely separate and once you leave it the connection is broken. Hopefully the 3DS gets this right.

EDIT3: and more on the friend codes being tied to the console. What if your 3DS dies and you get a replacement 3DS? You have to go through all that again - exchanging the friend code. And what if you sell your 3DS to buy a different one (perhaps a 3DS XL)? Now your friends are all friends with some stranger and you have to go through exchanging the friend code again (and they have to remove the old one). Maybe they have a way to deal with this, but I can't say I'm hopeful.

I'm sure gameloft games are keeping you busy.

But on topic, OMG Devil Survivor Overclock will be a launch window game. Seriously, if you didn't play this game on DS, you have to buy it. No excuses. Expect a 80 hours+ epic. No kidding. It's that good.

Also, Ocarina of Time gameplay video:

A Tales of Symphonia port would be the thing to push me into getting this handheld. As for now I'm just waiting to see what Sony has in store.

I'm looking for a next gen "hardcore"(hate the word) handheld to compliment the iPods casual gaming.

Think I'm going into Game later and canceling my pre-order. Don't get me wrong, I do want one, but I'm not paying 230 for the base machine. I can only hope that closer to the date, the retailers will start some kind of price war... I hope.
We've been shafted again. The US is paying $250 and we're paying $350, freakin' perfect.

P.S. It's available for pre-order at Shopto for 219.85.
