There are some surprises on here that I'm sure a lot of people will appreciate, like Megaman Legends 3.
Guess what guys? You trade in or sell a DSi with DSiWare on it? Never see it again.
If you trade up your DSi or DSiXL with 'ware on it, you won't be able to transfer it over.
I'm pretty sure if the transfer requires you to still have the original system in your possession, some stories will be accommodating.
Case in point, if you trade in your old 360 for one of the slim models, Gamestop would let you keep the HDD so you could transfer your crap to the new system. If you didn't turn in your old HDD in some time limit (dunno what it was though), they'd revoke your credit from it. Either that or hunt you down and crush you under a dearth of GameInformer issues and requests to preorder the Madden of the year and currently top-billed mainstream title

Abyss seems to be getting a bit of attention overseas too, with Namco doing an apparent reprint of the game and acquiring the rights to the anime... or something. I don't really pay too much attention to the details. xd
*pre-orders 3DS* (Not literally, but I would, had I the means to. XD)
Now if any of the later 3DS versions had an extra analog stick, on the right side, then I would start hoping for a Smash game, too. Or GC controller compatibility, to then connect the handheld on a TV, in that case. Or so, if possible. xD

Ooh, Tales of the Abyss port. That could be quite brilliant! The original version was definitely my favourite Tales game story and character-wise, but it was kind of a mess from a technical standpoint. Nasty loading times, lots of slowdown, broken free-run, and so forth. If they actually take the time to polish it a little rather than doing a straight port with 3-D, I'd consider buying it again.
So, got to play around with this thing today. Played a bit of the Deku Tree on Ocarina of Time (2 hour queue lolol) and the easy mode stage on Kid Icarus, then watched the 3D trailers of Tales of the Abyss, Paper Mario and Star Fox.
All in all, I liked it. The graphics look quite nice (miles better than the original DS, and thanks to there not being dithering everywhere better than the PSP as well), the 3D effect was generally quite cool if not really worth making a huge deal about, the slide pad is infinitely better than the PSP's incredibly painful nub, and the aqua blue colour looks just as nice to me in person as it did in pictures. Definitely getting that one.
In fact I only really had one issue with it, though it's a pretty big one. The viewing angles suck. It was pretty pronounced especially when I was playing Zelda, as there were no seats at that booth so we had to stand up and play. At first I thought the 3D just didn't work with my eyes or something because all I could see was double vision, but then I eventually found a good spot... briefly, until I lost it again. Repeat for most of the 8 minute session. The problem was massively reduced for Kid Icarus because I could sit down and leave the 3DS on the stand and play that way, but I can imagine the leaning forward position making my neck pretty sore after a while.
It's not quite 'you can't move your head even an inch or you've lost it' level bad, but if you either like relaxing and moving the handheld around while playing, have shaky hands or can't stay in almost the same position for your whole gaming session I can't help but feel the 3D will get to be more trouble than it's worth. Either way, I'm still in for one on launch, although the launch lineup is terrible so I won't actually be getting any games with it, heh.
