I dunno. This whole 3D thing has always and continues to feel like some big stupid marketing scheme to me. I was around back in the day when Jaws 3-D came out (in the early 80's) granted, i was young but I remember seeing it in the theater and hating it (a floating dismembered 3-d arm? really?!) So ever since then, I have just been kind of "off" the whole 3-D subject. It's not new. it's been around for years, and I remember having headaches after putting on 3-D glasses as a kid. I don't think it'll last. It's a fad. Not sure if this is the right way for Nintendo to go UNLESS the technology has improved, and doesn't cause harmful side effects. I have not been to see any of the "new" 3D movies that are currently out, but all I remember is hating the whole experience. On a good note, the new systems look great! I'm glad you can turn the 3-D off if you don't want to use it, but let's hope games just don't take that gimmicky route and put all their value on that function being 100% cool and functional all the time.

Y'know, in the ~25 years since you saw Jaws 3D, the technology has improved quite a bit.

They completely avoided online systems. So I'm assuming that means they are doing something, but WHAT they are doing I need to know because it will determine if I get this system or not because I am NOT getting another Nintendo system if it's online set up is as stupid and clunky as the Wii and DSi.

My hope is that they are going to revamp their entire online infrastructure. Wii and DSi/3DS. Though I'm guessing if they do anything they won't announce it till next year at GDC or something.

I'm also no holding my breath on something on par with XBL or even PSN.

I'm trading my DSi sometime this week, it's just a dust collector anyway. Can't wait to get my hands (and eyes) on the 3DS. :O

I'm sure. I think I may just be an old fogey. I can see myself in 50 years the last one left who hasn't had their chip installed yet, and I can see myself clinging to my NES and my Atari 7800 saying "noooooo! not me!!" and I can see them shoving me into the processing unit, escorted by police. So yeah, I'm a little hesitant. But I was proven wrong with the dsi and love mine, so I will probably be proven wrong again. I hope! The new systems look NICE though and I really want that red one :)

I also generally dislike glasses-based 3D, but this works in an entirely different way, and shouldn't have that same disorienting / hard-to-focus effect. There's no complex filtering or even shuttering going on, just your eyes naturally looking at the screen, but the screen has miniscule slits in it so that each eye can only see half the pixels.

Twitter is a good place to throw your nonsense.

So will I be able to get DSiWare with this thing? I'd love to pick up some G&W games while I'm at it.

BTW, is there Scrabble yet?

Another observation I have is that we'll likely see sharp drop-off in games where you hold the DS like a book. These parallax barrier screens can't show 3D when you hold it sideways, so no one will choose that style for a game, knowing all 3D functionality is thrown out if you do so.

When you hold it sideways, then it's perfect for books, since you don't need 3D when reading a book. (See "100 Classic Book Collection" by Nintendo on the DS.)

What I'm liking:

1. trompe l'oeil 3D graphics (look it up)
2. DSi technology (will be getting G&W titles)
3. Backward compatibility (I'll have to get a GBA once I sell my DS; it'll give me an excuse to get Link's Awakening DX)
4. Paper Mario, Star Fox 64, and Ocarina of Time (I can't wait!)
5. Larger stylus (that'll be nice)

Nope. Not sure why u would want it, it'd just shake the system to the point of blurring the screen and making it tough to use the stylus on.

The EA interview had some very interesting remarks on the online capabilities. He says the system will let you know when your friends are online, what games they are playing, and their list of achievements. That's all somewhat vague, but does speak to what may be a more modernized online system.

So the 3DS's bottom Touch screen is smaller than the DS Lites I take it.
DS Lite's is 3.12, While the 3DS's is 3.02. What the frig Nintendo? I know I know, it's hardly a big deal :p
