I recently found out that I can't see the 3d on the 3ds, it might have to do with my horrible vision, but without the 3d am I really missi g out on that much? Is it still a good improvement from the DSi?

The graphics on the console are much better than the DS (along with a lot of other improved features), and there will be lots of great games for it in the future, I'd say to go for it if you want it. I know of some people who don't use the 3D while playing the console and I probably wouldn't much myself to be honest.

Thanks. I'm either getting that or a iPad for my birthday in June, so I still have some time to decide.

I actually don't plan on using the 3D feature much myself... I'm really looking forward to the 'virtual console' aspect of it (same reason why I got a Wii). It has a lot of great features besides the 3D, so I don't think you'd be missing out.

The 3DS has many other features that other devices don't have, so not using the 3D isn't so much of an issue.

At the moment, I think most of the games are just trying to show off the 3D effect, and not much else. In time though, plenty of games will come out that will fun to play with or without the 3D on. I'm not sure how long I will be interested in the 3D aspect of the console myself, but I know that there will be some great games coming out that will be enjoyable regardless. :)

If you can't see the 3D, it's maybe a good idea to wait a while till there are better games.
Playing OoT on a handheld is epic! Even with the 3D turned off! =P
But hey... an iPad is awesome too... We have one at home and it truly is a great device!

Eventually? Yes. Right now? Probably not. Right now it seems that there's not any games that demand to be played on the system.

Also, I just realized since I will be getting in late June , if I decide to get it, the update would have already came and I would have other features as well.

Kid Icarus and Zelda should be out around that time too, so you'll have some good games :)

I'd say look at the upcoming games and see if there's anything you're really interested in getting before going with a 3DS.
Personally I don't usually have the 3D on, but I enjoy it just as much.

My husband can't see in 3D (he has absolutely no depth perception) and I can't say he's about to jump out and get one. Though if there was an enticing enough game he might.

You should get one. The system still is a huge graphical improvement over the DS and the all the games will eventually be 3DS exclusive. So unless you plan on abandoning new portable Nintendo gaming all together get it.

exactly.
the 3D aspect is a fun gimmick, it adds somerthing to the game but its not essential neither. i have it turned off most of the time. i must say it will depend of the game developpers, on how much they will use this feature.
Street fighter uses it with quality, its incredibly nice to look at. Diver looks rather like... 2d over another 2d background.

But the downloadable content and the access to the DSiware games will be a super strong point of this console. plants vs zombie on my 3DS ? yes sir ! old classics available? bring em here please

yeah go for it either way. i can't see the 3d most the times too. just very prominent 3d post at me (like the dioramas in pilotwing) but this device amazes me almost every day....and there is almost nothing to do with it right now.
my heads gonna explode after the update in the first bacht of real games.

AR Games, Street Pass, freaking Face Raiders, Comming up Virtual console and 3dsware, all the good games in the future, a proper (even if short) friendslist. yeah well...go for it.

Yes, get it. I rarely play mine in 3D.

I made Kid Tripp! PocketGamer gave it a 9 out of 10! You should totally buy it now!

The 3DS is a lot more than the 3D imho. I would get it if I were u. I like the 3D usage, but I don't play in 3D incessantly. The 2D mode is the "main mode" with the 3D the add one if you will.
