3DS hardware shots in stunning 2D

After seeing games running in glasses-free 3D on Nintendo's black-magic powered 3DS, looking at old-fashioned "flat" images just isn't that much fun anymore. Still, these official photos of (the still-a-prototype) the 3DS itself -- in red and blue -- are pretty impressive. Emphasis on pretty. They'll almost make you want to reach into your screen to grab them, but we really don't recommend that. Having to buy a new monitor will kind of put a dent in that money you're setting aside to buy a 3DS.
