    Is there a reason why Tetris shouldn't be a simple eshop download? Instead of a $60 boxed cartridge?

    Tetris DS is definitely one of my favourite games on the previous handheld. I'll look forward to see what this reiteration has to offer ^^

    put it as a 3dsware title, i would never pay full price for a game that's extremely old and has been done a billion times, i don't care what new stuff you've added, nothing could make me pay full price

    If there was a development as dramatic as TetriSphere, done well, familiar yet innovative and using the 3D creatively rather merely as a gimmick, I can see that this would do well. But not for $60. $40-50 maybe.

    Wow. So apparently its the 1980s again and tetris is big time for a console. Oh wait, its 2011 and the 3ds has no other games.

    Hold up...you mean "I" could be the L shape for halloween? Oh and Tetris on 3DS? Sounds great! Just do it right!
