I've pre-ordered mine, but from gamestation because I got a good deal for trading in my dsi xl and some games. I tried a console out in the store the other day and it convinced me instantly, if something can put a smile on my face that quickly it's enough to convince me.
Still looking for a gd deal, should order one soon.

Any colour?
