Well, I did it. I put money down on a Nintendo 3DS last night. Now I just have to wait until the 27th...or midnight on the 26th.
It's not so much the gimmicky 3D that I'm looking forward to. I mean, that's gonna be awesome, even though I don't love 3D movies. No glasses required for this! And...when I already constantly wear one pair, who wants to wear two? I mean...really...no one wants to be called "six eyes".
So it's on its way, I guess. A little over a week, and I'll be the proud owner of yet another Nintendo system. And since I'm trading in my lovely, trustworthy, reliable Nintendo DS Lite (shh...don't tell it...I haven't broken the news yet), it will be $50 cheaper. Great.
I have mixed feelings about that, though. I love my DS Lite...it's been here for me for almost five years. It's a great little system. But the 3DS does everything the DS does (expect play Game Boy Advance games...but I already own a GBA), and more. It's a trade-up. I just can't help but feeling a little guilty...like trading in a pet for one you like a little more.
Why do I feel that way about an inanimate object? I'm broken.
Have you ever felt that way?
