This is interesting. After a bunch of gaming press received invites to a press event in Amsterdam on January 19th, there’s apparently further invites floating around for an event in New York City on the same day. Here’s the direct quote from Escapist Magazine:
> Similar invites have gone out to North American gaming press about an event in New York City on January 19. Nintendo has been mum about the specific North American and European release dates for the 3DS so far, so it isn’t hard to guess what it could be announcing at these events.
Even though Nintendo won’t be exhibiting at CES 2010, I thought that’s when we’d get the release date and price of the Nintendo 3DS. But it sounds like January 19th may be the magical day.
