Nintendo 3DS Cosmo Black
OMG i cannot wait to get my hands on these!!
i cannot wait i don't know if you guys are nerds at lvl. 8 like me but i watched the GDC (Game Devolpers Conferance) and they talked acout Netflix on the 3DS video recording and more!!!! I CANNOT WAIT!!!!!!
Last comment is all wrong!!!
The person who commented saying the 3DS is going to suck has all there points wrong. The 3DS uses autostereoscopy to produce 3D effects. This means the 3D is natural and has no bad effects on the eyes. Also, the 3DS can be played while it is on its charging cradle. The charging cradle simply clips on to the back leaving the top screen fully functional. And i also checked at futureshop to see how much the games would cost and the pre-order price is only $39.99 which is relatively the same price as some of the newer DS games. And i personally think that the 3DS is going to be the best Nintendo handheld system yet.
If u plan to get a 3DS read this!!!
I know the 3DS thing isn't going to be as good as u think. why? well first off nintendo sucks there games are fails and they all have extremly bad graphic's (i own a ps3) so why would the 3DS be any better, i think it would be worse with the 3D and 3D is overated and will get boring eventually after u play it awile. another think to think about is i'm hearing rumor's that there will be a more severe saftey guide with it and u will only be able to play for 30 minutes and take a break of else it will be bad for your eyes. to finish off why the 3DS is going to be a fail is because u can't play while it's plugged in now because it charges in a cradle and i checked at futureshop and alll the 3DS pre-order games are 70$ that's a little more than a new ps3 game which is crazy. after this if u are smart u will not buy the 3DS and sell all your nintendo products buy a ps3 and get a good game and you'll be blown away and amazed graphic's could be this could and games could be this much fun.
I waited some time before doing a review on the 3DS, I wanted to make sure If I was going to recommend or not this to someone that I had a good knowledge of it before doing so.
First off, one of the biggest questions people have is "Will the 3D work for me?" Then answer is Yes. (As long as you have 2 working eyes, the 3D will work for you, even if you have glasses, or contacts, even if you have Astigmatism, the 3D will work for you)
The 3D for the most part is dependant on the games, developers have the choice if they want to use Depth 3D (where the images are pushed back into the screen, like your looking into a box, Super Street Fighter 4 3D is a good example of this) or if they use the "pop out" 3D where the images seem to come out of the screen at you.
For the most part all the games I have seen use the Depth style of 3D effect, though there are the odd moments that some objects do seem to come out of the screen in some games.
Another question I get asked frequently.
Does the 3D actually make the gameplay better? Or it is just a tacky add-on?
This one is also game dependant, some games, like Super Street Fighter 4 3D, do not "need" the 3D effect, but it does make the game look very cool. Games like Lego Starwars III: The Clone Wars on the other hand make very good use of the 3D as it can help you not only to judge jumping distance, but other things, which I will not spoil for you.
Moving on the 3DS has a variety of solid software built right in, good fun games like Face Raiders, which makes use of not only the 3D camera but the 3DS's gyroscope features as you have to move about fighting enemies and bosses of the people you take pictures of.
Also the Mii maker is just as robust if not more so than the version on the Wii, you can also use the camera to scan the more and more popular QR codes to bring Mii's right into your 3DS, or save your favorite Mii's as QR codes and post them online for other to scan your creation right into their 3DS.
Some of the other features are game coins, which uses the built-in pedometer to count steps you take, granting you 1 coin per 100 steps you take, upto a max of 10 coins per day and 300 coins total at any given time.
Those coins can be used for various things, like in Lego Star Wars III, you can use them to purchases unique characters from the shop, which can not be purchased without them. You can also use the coins to unlock more AR games.
Speaking of AR games, its another nice addition to the 3DS, when you buy the system you get a package of AR cards that have various uses, for playing games from fighting dragons, to archery, to a bowling type thing and more, also dont worry of you lose or wreck your AR cards, you can download and print off new ones from Nintendos website.
The 3DS also has brought something alot of people wanted which was a analog stick, which is the Circle pad, right above the D-Pad is the circle, which works in virtually all 3DS games, though some of the original DS games dont make use of it (Yes the 3DS IS Backwards Compatible with DS games)
**For Parents** I should also mention that parents who are considering buying this for their kids, but have some fears, worry not, the 3DS has a full parental control system built in that allows you to disable the 3D, restrict internet access, disable access to the eShop, and the ever popular restrict titles from running based on their ESRB ratings and disable Netflix.
You can even restrict the addition of friends to their lists if you choose, so you can keep a eye on who your kids will be meeting online.
All in all the 3DS is a outstanding system, well worth the price point.
Also as of June 6th, 2011 here in Canada the 3DS will have its next update, which will enable the eShop, Internet Browser and add Netflix to the system, so the many features and uses of the 3DS is continuing to grow.
Its a must buy.
Excited and curious
I've been anticipating the 3DS since it was first revealed. I'm most excited about the 3D screen and how it will affect gameplay. So far, the launch line up looks pretty good, but like the original DS, it will only get better in time!
Having backwards compatibility is also a huge bonus, because there are SO many DS games that are worth playing through.
Although from what I've seen, you should pre-order this machine ASAP. Otherwise, you risk not being able to get one for a while (remember the Wii around launch?). Japan only had 400,000 for it's first day of sale, and rumour has it, there will only be about 100,000 for the whole of Great Britain.
Pre-order it now, people!
The Nintendo 3DS is going to be a huge revolution in the gaming industry! I'm pre-ordering this tomorrow! can't wait
Gonna be awesome
Hey..wow. Nintendo always have the trick to blow us out. Seriously, yeah it's pricy, I'm gonna swore a little bit when it'll shipp but I'm pretty sure it will worth the price. and you, what do you think?
The 3DS Looks Great!
I don't know why people say that the DS is the worst console ever made because I read the September issue of Nintendo Power and they gave this huge spill about the 3DS and some of it's features. Then a few weeks ago I saw the Nintendo 3DS E3 Preview and I thought that being able to create a Mii just by taking your picture was sweet! I want Paper Mario 3D, Lego Star Wars III in 3D and Mario Kart 3D. Oh and I want Pro Evolution Soccer 2011 3D and Super Monkey Ball 3D. But it really stinks that we can't play our regular DS games in 3D and you can't play our Gameboy Advance SP games on the 3DS. But really this looks like the best gaming console of the year.
Was Worth It Before the Price Drop
I bought my 3DS a month after it came out and I've never regretted it, even when the price dropped $80. As a system, it does a lot. It has great games, great graphics, plays 3D video and even has its own online store. It didn't launch with very many good games, probably explaining the reason why it didn't sell so well, but there will be many more great games being released in the next few months and already has many games built into the system (e.g. face raiders, find mii, etc.). If you're on the edge of buying one of these, I would definitely recommend that you do.
will the 3ds connect to the older versions of ds cause i would like to face my firend in pokemon
