I think I'm the only one hoping for a new 3DS iteration. I'm ready to trade up my current 3DS for a 3DSLite. Then again all my gaming dollars are focused on the DS/3DS. I can understand someone being hard-pressed and upset for a new release when you're supporting your hobby on two to five different systems.
Heh heh....I just had a baby and my biggest client just told me they'd be slashing the work they sent my way by 40%, so trust me...I'm not ready to buy new hardware.
With that said, isn't it funny how you never here anyone complain "Oh crap, I've got to get a new Ipod this year" or "Darn, Apple just released a new iteration of the Iphone!" I mean, at least it's rumor, speculation, and mystery with Nintendo. With Apple, it's so clockwork that it's barely news. Hey everyone, guess what, Apple is going to release a whole new line of Ipods and Itouches in 4 weeks. Big whoop. Hey everyone, in just 7 months, your Iphone is going to be rendered obsolete by a new iteration that looks just different enough for everyone else to notice you're using last year's iteration. Wah wah.
