Nintendo 3DS Demo Pod: Tours Pre-Release Date

Nintendo are certainly raising awareness of their Nintendo 3DS with different marketing techniques, their latest one is having a large demonstration pod touring around the US to different locations such as New York, Los Angeles, Chicago and San Francisco.

This is a great opportunity for you handheld game lovers who are torn between getting the Nintendo 3DS, the Sony NGP or any of the currently reduced Sony handheld consoles. The demo pods will have a few different games available for you to try out such as the new nintendogs + cats, Mii Maker and of course one that everyone has been waiting for Super Street Fighter IV 3D edition.

They mention in the press release about the console’s release date (US March 27th) and the suggested price of $249.99 along with all of the hands-on demo games that will be available but they also mention the dates and times where the pods will be for each city which you can see below.

Many of you will have been put off the Nintendo 3DS by something that has been floating around about the use of the R4 cards in the device. There’s been talk that the 3DS will have some kind of log of when the card has been used and that it will actually brick up your console rendering it unusable. We at OSM feel that this is going to open up a whole can of worms legally because what happens if one of your friends puts their card in your console without knowing the lasting effects, what happens there?

Will you be heading to one of the pods to have a hands-on experience with a 3DS? Think of it as a try-before-you-buy. Let us know in the comments section below.
