Shouldn't be more than 249$. Still, one more year of waiting.

Will probably get when it's $150 or less. I realize that's a while after its launch, but I gotta finish playing my GBA and DS games first before I delve in 3DS games. I have original white DS.

It is the nature of the Parallax barrier tech used on the screen. In order for the 3D effect to work, you have to be in the sweet spot.

From what i've seen the 3ds will have n64 power if not less. I hope they will use gc like graphics. IF they do this then i will buy at least one if not.. me ds lite will serve me well.

I was watching kid Icarus demo from e3 and I don't see gc graphics. DS has n64 graphics but there is no texture filter imo. Most of the 3d games look more like they are software rendered. 3DS will have some gpu(the texture look a bit better) but I don't see it more powerful that a N64 from that demo.

After seeing some more picture from games i still believe that the power is not that great. Street Fighter 4 3d edition looks ok but i think i can find a better looking fighting game for n64, Chocobo racing look strange and far from good and so one.

At the end of the day the system will sell like crazy. To manny great games coming for it. Zelda OOT is coming also.. I can't wait to play it on 3d

I played some n64 today, and the graphics in the videos I have seen for the 3ds are very superior.

3ds


Game cube



n64


Another strong benefit of the 3ds is that 3d stereo gives you free supersampling AA.

pahncrd is hard to compare 2-3 games when they are so different. After watching a little bit more 3ds looks ahead of N64 for sure. Still kid icarus look odd to me. I can't wait to see some game play footage of OOT and compare apples with apples.

Watch it some more. You will see its on almost at gamecube/xbox level.

The only flaw I have with the 3DS so far is:
- Only one analog stick
- 2011


Superb game selection at launch, better graphics than the PSP from what I saw (so its more than good enough imo), 3D screen can be turned off if unwanted, good BUILT IN peripherals (two cameras, gyroscope, accelerometer), should have very decent battery.

You seem to forget that with greater power, comes greater battery drain. I don't want to be tied to a wallsocket.
(Yes, I am a fanboy after I saw everything the 3DS has to offer. Perfect upgrade from the DS)

It's not that hard to get a feel for poly counts, textures and omfg shaders.

Don't take my word for it, actually take some time and look at all of the media available. I don't know about kid Icarus, as I haven't looked at it since I have zero interest in it.

The capabilities are pretty impressive. I mean, gamecube quality graphics while rendering in 3d stereo. Seems to be all kinds of win.

Hands on video of the 3DS. The 3D effect can be seen just a little since he is moving the camera around and thus switching between both screens. Looks awesome.

Kinda wish they'd have made the screens just a bit bigger...like having a 4" screen on top and equivalent increase on the bottom screen.


I guess I could always wait for the 3DS XL version....man, I doubt I could wait for that. The games this system will get will be amazing!

3d has a way of making the screen seem bigger, so it may not be as big of a deal as it looks at first glance.

Then what would Nintendo sell you in two years if they gave you everything you wanted right off the bat.

Ya, that kinda crap ticks me off...Sony and Nintendo coming out with multiple revisions of their handhelds.

I could tolerate ONE revision but thats it. I fully expect Nintendo to come out with a larger-screen version of 3DS within a couple years after launch.

3.5 inch is the same size as an entire iPhone/iPod screen. I have no problem with this at all.

I can't wait for this. I'm still looking forward to playing EVERYTHING. I love DS.
