Nintendo 3DS Preorders Begin
January 19, 2011
Now that Nintendo has solidified plans to launch the 3DS in March, retailers are starting to open up their preorder processes. Two colors will be available in North America at launch — Cosmo Black and Aqua Blue— for a "mere" $249.99. Games sold separately, natch. Amazon has its preorder slots open as of this writing and you'd better believe that I locked in my order before the masses found out. I went for the classy Cosmo Black to match my other current handheld gadgets. On a related topic, now that my 3DS preorder is taken care of, I can write this article alerting the masses that Amazon has opened up 3DS preorders. Also, I've been waiting months to use this image of Futurama's Fry demanding to purchase something new and amazing. Once again, everything has worked out for the best.
