I've got to ask, has this Pachter dude ever been right? I mean, statistically speaking, it should have happened by now, right?
I skipped the Nintendo DSi, then just yesterday traded in my ageing DS Lite for a shiny new DSi XL, and it's definitely not a purchase I'm regretting. Ok, so a lot of the DSIWare titles also being on Apple's Ipod App store was a bit disappointing, but I am enjoying Nintendo's Game and Watch classics (they remind me of soooo long ago).
In any case, I very much doubt we'll see the 3DS down here in Australia until next year, and as far as I'm concerned, that's still a long way off yet.
