I was planning on getting a 3DS after finally managing to get a job sometime -- which is annoying as shiz to obtain ._., -- and so I figured that I'd have to wait a while before I would even be able to get Pokemon X/Y. After all, I waited on getting Soul Silver, Black, and Black 2 for a while, so waiting to get X/Y wouldn't have been that much of an issue.
However, my mom ended up taking me out to Target on Sunday and getting me a 3DS (Purple~... also Scribblenauts Unlimited), so I'm set for when X/Y comes out.
I need to get a 3DS before October. Not going to be able to ask for it for Christmas or my birthday though. My birthday in is November, so the game will be out before then, which is disappointing. So hopefully I'll find a way to get one. I told myself I wouldn't get one unless Pokemon had a game on it, so now its time I guess.

I wonder if I should buy a 3DS now, or wait till October and get a 3DS & Pokemon X/Y bundle.
He probably wants to get it at launch, which he wouldn't be able to do if he waits until his birthday or Christmas. He could still ask for it then, but he'll get it later than he would like.

I have a 3DS already, but if they release really good 3DS X/Y bundles (with a physical game cart, not pre downloaded like with the new Fire Emblem) then I'll be getting one.
Difference is that GBAs were cheap. 3DS is $200.
The 3DS right now is at the same price I got my original DS.
I'm planning on upgrading to XL for the release of X & Y too. Not sure whether to keep my regular 3DS or sell it. It'd be handy for trading with myself but I kinda feel like going 'back to the old school' and only buying one version and then rely on trading to complete my Dex. I completed the National Dex on White without trading with anyone other than myself...nowhere near the same sense of achievement as if I had traded with people.
I'm fine with it because I have to get a DSi for WPA compatibility before then anyway. Thus, I'll end up using the stop-gap DSi to get money off the 3DS.

So far I've saved up £80, I'm going to go out busking with some friends and hopefully earn about £50 per session (given we'll split the money evenly) and by October I should be fine.
