$130. No 3d. No folding. When I first looked at the picture I thought it was kind of a joke.




Is this enticing to those out there who don't like 3d?

If it were $20 cheaper with a second analog stick (... pad?) and has a longer battery life. Then I'd definitely get get one to put on the coffee table. Honestly, I've forgotten that the 3DS has 3D since I keep the damn thing off while I'm playing.

Honestly, if it closed and had the XL screens that's all I'd need, I never use 3D on mine.

If they redesigned the XL to be slightly smaller with slightly smoother corners, ditched the 3D screen while adding a 2nd analog stick and sold it region free, i would throw so much money at them they'd need a small truck to move it all.

I'd also like to point out that i don't like their cost cutting measure of going back to a mono speaker. Surely the extra money another speaker would require would be negligible, especially after being offset by the lesser plastic use (for speaker holes)?

I mean, shit, they kept the dual rear cameras for some stupid reason. Why didn't they ditch 1 and save money, or used said money to put a bigger battery in it?

I just really don't like this. This looks like it won't feel well at all.

If they just did this from the beginning. 3D can bum off. It does look a little like a futuristic tombstone.

Since when did anyone expect Nintendo products to look normal or make sense? That's the magic.

If it was under 100 bucks, I would get it.

It's so huge. I know it's for kids, but was the point to make it so big that there's no possibility whatsoever to lose it?

That's still pretty damn cheap. So what about all the games that require 3d?

No games require 3D outright... though some might be "better" with 3D, like Resident Evil: Revelations

I didn't see the price and I might consider this in the future. Like when they make it look comfortable to my hands.

Yeah, I heard about this and wasn't sure about lols... I can see this working, but if I were looking for something for my kid, I personally wouldn't care enough to go for this. For myself, I can't forgive lacking the ability to fold. It's too satisfying.

I kind of dig the statement/response that Nintendo's been giving, though. They do what they want, right?

Well I know what you mean about being disappointed -- I thought it was pretty weird of them to do it, too. But you can get stereo out of 'em through headphones anyway, apparently. So whatever, I guess.

Clamshells are scary with my boys at times. They leave them open and face down so we can't see that they're still on, and then they inevitably come close to stepping on them.
