Did anyone pick up a Nintendo 3DS? If so, what do you think about it?
Now that the Nintendo 3DS is pretty much available to all, I'm sure a lot of people out there already got their hands on it. Initially, I thought it was a bit gimmicky, but after watching some of the demos of the augmented reality games, I was getting the urge to bust out the credit card and pick one up...especially with Walmart offering up to $100 credit if you trade in you old Nintendo DS (http://gdgt.com/discuss/if-you-already-own-ds-liv... What are your first impression?...

Hello, I guess that Nintendo must change its videoconsoles, I don´t like any of this machines...
Is portable, have 3D graphics, but its main processor and system memory is very low if you compares it with others portable devices like smartphones, an example could be Sony Ericcson Xperia 10 or the Droid 2 ...and its aspect seems antiqued, though it does not. Always Nintendo with same way of make bussiness...

I was lucky enough to play with the 3DS in London last week, and I was blown away. The games that impressed me most were Zelda, and SSFIV3D.
With SSFIV3D, I was playing at a booth, and someone a little next to me played with SSFIV3D in their booth. We connected so seemlessly, we didn't realise, and before we knew it, were were locked in a battle. I was in Dynamic viewpoint (slightly behind the character), and he played in classic mode (side-by-side) and it was just so smooth on both ends. Amazing!

Super Street Fighter IV with online multiplayer... that's all I needed to know.
As soon as the online multiplayer feature was announced, the decision was made for me to sell whatever I have to and do however much computer sidework is required to get one of these at launch. This is the ONLY feature that has influenced my purchase decision. I already have a DS Lite and have been getting a lot of use out of it lately reliving classic RPGs. I would have been happy with my DS Lite for years to come at the rate I am going with these games, but... the thought of playing SSFIV on... Read more →

So apparently Nintendo has been saying that kids under six shouldn't use the 3D on the 3DS:
http://gamepolitics.com/2011/01/03/why-3ds-might-b... I doubt any parents will bother heeding that message, and considering how many young kids play DS now, I can only foresee a grim future. Hopefully their concerns will prove to be overblown. Though the question becomes, what was Nintendo thinking? They of all people should have a good idea of who their audience was going to be.

If you ask me, this thing is ugly.
Personally, I would have kept the LED lights where they were, moved the 3D slider to the side, and kept the insides entirely black, with color accents on the button text and such. Also, move the back cameras and the top screen a little higher up; that bothers me for some reason. If Nintendo at least fixes the colors, I'll buy one. What about you guys?

How long before anyone actually makes good use of the 3D? Can anyone make good use of the 3D?
When the DS originally came out, most of the games barely made use of the DS's new features, reducing them to a novelty: you would use the stylus to move your character or highlight parts of the screen, but for the most part, it wasn't anything that couldn't have been done with the d-pad. And it was rare to see a game that used any of the other new features. After a few years we started getting games that really started making use of all the features: blowing into the mic,...

(Ninetndo 3DS), So here is an interesting thought.
I remember reading, and I think it was on here about first party launches for the 3DS and how Pokemon(major console seller) wasn't going to be a launch title. Well it was annouced a little bit ago that Pokemon Black and White is coming out this year(for Japan) and early next year for the US. Now I know Ninetndo's strategy on the 3DS is odd but it is possible and rumored that the 3DS will launch this year. Now this is a long shot but the timing is very interesting considering Pokemon is... Read more →
