Earlier this week, Nintendo and Pokemon Company International <b><a target="_blank" href="http://ds.ign.com/articles/121/1219443p1.html">announced Pokemon Black 2 and White 2</a></b>, the first entries in the series to be numerical sequels. While fans should have been excited, many focused on one particular aspect of the games - they were coming to the Nintendo DS, not the Nintendo 3DS.<br/><br/>Earlier today we wrote an <b><a target="_blank" href="http://ds.ign.com/articles/121/1219553p1.html">editorial</a></b> discussing whether the current development strategy for Pokemon is actually doing harm to the Nintendo 3DS - or at least limiting its potential. Nintendo, for its part, issued a comment to include in our piece, stating that the DS game would still function on the 3DS, and that the DS install base of 151 million systems was too large and deserved continued support.<br/><br/>You've been firing away your comments in both the announcement and <b><a target="_blank" href="http://ds.ign.com/articles/121/1219553p1.html">editorial</a></b> articles, but for our latest 'Question of the Week' feature, we'd like to get more of your thoughts in a more complete form.<br/><br/><b>Here are our questions to you. We'd love to see you address these in a MyIGN blog in whatever style you'd like. The best answers and thoughts will be printed in an upcoming IGN article. Please do your best to pay attention to grammar, and break up your entries into paragraphs. It makes our lives easier!</b><br/><br/><li>Are you excited by the announcement of Black 2 and White 2? Why? Why not?<br/><br/><li>Are there particular features or ideas Black 2 and White 2 must have to convince you of a purchase? Will you buy them no matter what they include?<br/><br/><li>As a gamer, do you care whether these games are published on the DS or the 3DS? Were you expecting them to be developed for the 3DS?<br/><br/><li>Will you be playing these games on your 3DS?
