How about "When will the second version come out that doesn't have a crud 3-5 hour battery life?"

I'm still so disappointed about this. That's just not OK Nintendo. Not OK.

Ask for more details about the 3DS Shop, like payment methods and pricing and available content, and about how the Nintendo Wi-Fi Connection will be done, for example friend codes per game or per system? And finally will other regions have 3D Video DLC like Japan? OK done :3

1. How much European country will pay for games?
2. Are there gonna be bundle packs like in Japan with Nintendogs + Cats or another games?
3. On the Launch time or soon after it, are there gonna be any Virtual Game Boys games? How much they are gonna cost, will be there greater support from Nintendo than for Wii with the Virtual Console?(I mean can we expect more good games in every week than on Wii VC). i think that's all :'>

I'm sure many will ask these same questions, but it wouldn't hurt to repeat.
1. What will be the NA launch titles?
2. Will there be friend codes?
3. What will the prices be for the games?
4. What will be available on the 3DS VC at launch?

As for the memory size, recent photos of a 3DS showed that it had 96MB of memory.
http://www.3dsbuzz.com/chinese-factory-worker-leaks-photos-of-3ds/

Questions:
1. How locked will the 3DS regions be? Only for downloaded games, like the DSi, or for cartridges as well?
2. Will the VC include SNES games, maybe even complete emulation?
3. What about PC connectivity? Will we be able to exchange useful data between 3DS and PC?

You guys said you wanted questions about 3DS

I want to know since they are useing SD card. If there be any photoshop programs. Like if I want to give one of my 2D photos a 3D look. It would be nice to take a drawing and play with the 3D effects.

Second question would be any plans for comics or manga that use the 3D effects for the 3DS? I remeber there was some thing for manga on the Wii and other devices let you download comics and manga. It would be strange if the 3DS doesn't

1) Is the Virtual Game Boy Shop [thing] going to be online on the same day the 3DS releases, and how many games are expected to launch?

2) Will the 3DS be able to connect to Wii?

3) Are [3D] movies going to be distributed this year?

4) Will 1000 Points be on the system upon purchase? (Hey, one can hope haha)

5) Will the 3DS be able to multi-task when playing DS games?

6) Are 'new' battery packs going to be sold with longer lasting batteries- or is it even possible to manually replace the battery by oneself?

@benjibibbles unlikely, shrugs, probably not, ABXY/Touch Screen
@triforceofcourage yes, yes, maybe

All I want to know is:

  • How much will it cost?
  • How much internal storage will it have?
  • Is Youtube going to happen?
  • What sort of social media connectivity is there? (posting photos on facebook, friend code requests etc)
  • What games will be there at launch?

Will we be able to surf the web with the browser as well as we do on our smart phones? OR is the browser lame as the one in DSi?

Since I can transfer DSiWare games on to the 3DS, does that mean I can purchase DSiWare games like Shantae on the 3DS?

Ask questions? Well I guess since I can't make it to the New York event I guess I might as well ask away.
1) Will the multitasking run with the music app?-As in will I be able to listen to songs from my sd card while gaming?

2)Was the recent announcement about te 3DS only getting 3 to 5 hours of gaming with the 3DS games with the 3D on or off and at what brightness.

3) Nintendo's launch titles for the US

4) Whether or not retailers like gamestop will have them placed at there stores for testing (Gamestop has systems one can try out at their stores so will nintendo allow them to display it?)

5) What are the change with the 3DS's music feature

If you could answer any of these I'd be quite thankful

How much? (System, games, downloads)
Battery life, when 3D is not used. (is it the same as the quoted DS game battery life?)

cnm_nintendo

cnm_nintendo said:

Oh one more question. Because the 3DS is backwards compatible with DS games and the 3DS now supports WPA and WPA2, when playing a DS Wi-Fi enabled game on the 3DS will it work connected to an access point that uses WPA or WPA2? Perhaps the 3DS tricks the game into thinking it's a WEP access point when it really isn't?

I'm going to use both contact form and comment...

1) Is it going to have demos, if so can we download them directly from the 3DS or do we have to download from another place?

2) Everything about 3DSWare.

3) Will it be only Game Boy and Game Boy Color on Virtual Console? Do they plan to add Game Boy Advance and Virtual Boy later as well as other handhelds like the Neo Geo Pocket, Game Gear and Linx?

4) When do we get 3D movies. Will it be digital or sold on cartridges?

5)Will it use Friend Code? If so, one Friend Code for each system or for each game?

Let's ask more different questions... obvious that they are going to say the price and stuff like that.

I'm slightly colour blind. Will that effect my ability to see the 3D goodness? I know this is a question that can't really be answered till I have a look for myself, but if they have any info I'd be grateful.

The only reason I ask is because I always struggled with those magic-eye images. I imagine (hope) I am worrying for nothing.

Burny said:

  • Is there an account based online (shop, multiplayer) system? Will an account be transferable to a newer console (new hardware revision or the old one broke down)?
  • Nintendo did mention classical games in 3D for the online shop: Are OoT 3D and Starfox among these download games or will they be released at full retail price?
  • Where will savegames be stored? Is there again separate flash memory on the cartridges or will savegames be stored on the SD cart?
  • What settings were used to determine the 3DS's battery life? Specifically: are 5 hours for 3DS games at low brightness settings / no Wifi and 3 hours at high brightness settings etc.?
  • The usual friendcode questions: Per system or per game? Tied to an account or generated for each savegame / system? Is mutual registration of friendcodes necessary or will you receive an alert if someone adds your code to the friendlist?
  • Will it be possible to add people to a friend list / automatically exchange friendcodes if you are playing with them online?
  • Does the 3DS offer ways of communication over the internet during online games?
  • Does ist offer ways of communication (with people in a frindlist) over the internet outside of a game? (pictochat online?)
  • What are the memory limitations for 3DSWare games?
  • Is the initial size of 3DS cartridges (2GB) really measured in gigabyte (GB) or do they still use gigabit (usually notated as Gb)?
  • Will 3DS games - specifically ones with online modes - be patchable?
  • Does Nintendo have means and allow devs to offer DLC over the shop?

1. Will the classic Game Boy VC titles have multiple colour palettes, like when you play them on the Game Boy Color; or even customisable colour palettes, like on the Super Game Boy?

2. Will there be any kind of connectivity between copies of multiplayer VC titles? There'd be problems with Red and Blue if that's not the case... ;)

3. Do the VC titles have a colourful or themed border, like on the Super Game Boy?

Those are my questions! Oh, and just in case you didn't realise, I'm looking forward to the 3DS Virtual Console! :D

FC-system has already been confirmed, but:

2. Will 3DS game's saves be stored on the game card or on the 3DS?
3. Will 3DSShop be available at launch or later?
4. What's the 3DSWare size limit?
5. Can games be patched/updated?
6. Has the Black 3DS the same problem with fingerprints as the DSLite?

That's it... for now.

Here are my questions:

2. Will there be a Super Smash Bros. game for this?
3.Can we play regular DS games online using a WPA connection rather than a WEP connection?
4. Will there be any DLC for any 3DS games?
5.Since the 3DS is region locked, is there a chance that some games are region free? just like some xbox 360 games? and why is there a region lock?
6. Is there gonna be Youtube support in the Internet Browser?

Birdman

Birdman said:

Some of my questions:
1. What will the launch price of the 3DS in NA be?
2. What is the cost of the typical 3DS game, like Nintendogs + Cats or Steel Diver?
3. Will there be a way to turn off StreetPass mode?
4. What is the expected price(s) of 3DSWare games?
5. Will there be any restrictions on DSiWare transfers (Only w/o WiFi, only w/o camera, etc.)?
6. I recall some talk last year of the 3DS having it's own WiFi support, like PS3's and newer 360's. Can you confirm/deny this?
7. What systems will have VC support?
8. If I was to get a game's demo (like at a store's DS Download Station or through a game's "transfer a demo" feature), is there a way for me to save that demo?
9. Shoulder buttons: Can Nintendo confirm/deny that progress has been made to prevent them from not functioning properly?
10. If I transfer my DSiWare and let's say I have 300 Nintendo Points left on my DSi, will those transfer as well?

That's all I can think of at the moment. I may be back!

I think it might be a good start to stop asking questions that have already been asked and answered. Secondly, you don't need a new 3DS with a better battery life, it's called a CHARGER. for traveling, 5 hours is a decent time. We have also already been told that it varies with brightness and extent of gaming.

All my questions concern online, and are more requests for clarification than questions.

I just want to know what the online structure is going to be--namely, if we're gonna have accounts tied to our Nintendo purchases...with names (YES!) or if we're sticking with turbo-archaic friend-code systems (NO!), and also if all of our DSiWare apps are going to be transferrable (I know some are--I wanna make sure there aren't any restrictions).

I think they already stated that average game pricing was gonna be ~$50...more in line with current-gen console releases than handhelds.

I am buying this solely in hope i can watch 3D movies, in 3D without glasses, wherever i want.

Mrleelongi said:

I'm not gonna freak out about the whole battery issue because I was expecting it to have a bad battery life when it came to 3D. But still the question about a possible better battery coming out and it being swappable with the current one is a need to know.
Main Question: How will the transfering of the DSiware shop account work? Will I only need to enter my Club Nintendo account info onto the 3DS and can download my previous titles or will I need to have the DSi nearby or can I transfer the games via SD card?

2. What about the next Professor Layton game for DS? Can we expect that it to be released sometime soon? Oh and will the awsome cool Professor Layton VS Phoenix Wright title come to the US?

3.Will there be a nice warranty on the system, like at least a one year warranty and not just 90 days or 180 days if registered?

4. What is being done about that Chinese dude that stole the 3DS off the production line and then leaked video onto Youtube? Is he going to be offered a super spy job? LOL JK!

The real question 4: Can we expect gameboy advance games to appear on the virtual console shop and if so can we expect to see the old Pokemon games, from Red and Blue to Ruby and Emerald, on there?

5.Will we see an overhauled version of Flipnote Studios for the 3DS in which we can make 3D flipnotes?

6. Graphic wise is this just as powerful as the 360 and PS3?

7. Will we see a change in company policies for games? In other words can we expect that a 3D Grand Theft Auto will be allowed to be made for the 3DS?

8. Any expamles of unlockable content that Game Coins will unlock?

9. Any chances of the US getting self-repairing screen protectors?

10. When can we expect OOT to be released if it's not a launch title?

My major Chuck Norris level question is: Will the 3DS play movies? Will there be special cartridges, like the GameBoy Video? Will you be able to play videos from an SD card in mp4 format? What's the price? When's the release date in the U.S.? Help me Nintendo Life, you're my only hope.

10. Why the heck are Nintendo leaving us with so many unanswered questions?

Well, that's all I got.

It'd be great if you could answer these questions for me NL :)
1. Can you connect the 3DS to the internet using the Nintendo Wi-Fi USB Connector?? I currently have it as my only option to connect my Wii and DSi and luckily for me it works perfectly fine. But it has been discontinued for a while so they might have forgot to include it on the 3DS. It would be a huge disappointment to me if I couldnt access the internet.
2. Can you find out any info on the Australian release? Like release dates, price, launch games, how much games will cost.

Thanks so much if you answer my questions! :D

I have a curiosity that I've been wondering about.
I don't know if its been asked before but if I were to buy a 3DS that is NA regioned and go on a trip to Japan, would the streetpass function still exchange information even though it's interacting with a Japan region 3DS?

new info (source - andriasang and nintendo)

Street pass mode can transfer up to 12 registered games at the same time.

Home menu wont function fully if using wifi or cameras, when not using these you can press home to pause the game and go online plus more.

3DS retail boxes are a lot thinner than regular DS boxes.

3DS can be charged with a DSi cable.

Burny said:

@133

First info is indeed new. Second info sounds locical. Hard to imagine playing someone online in Street Fighter and having your game paused, because your opponent decides to browse the internet for a bit. ;) Can't think of a scenario where using the cameras would interfere with the home menu though. Unless you're video chatting maybe?

Thinner retail boxes were apparent from the photos. They also appear to generally be larger in size.

New news and best news is 12 games at once tranferring data via streetpass at the same time, up untill now iwata and miyamoto have hinted towards 7 games at once so this is great news for gamers. Still no word on max distance between users for streetpass to function.

Are left-handers' really getting the shaft? Will there be some sort of "compensation" for their handicap? This is a serious question and having to adapt to everything in life is already a pain. Give us a break for once.

i am left handed, i try to learn most things right handed to make life easier but i write with my left hand and find it extremely hard to use the stylus in my right hand, i have practiced with my dsi but with no luck. I can see me missing out some games because of this for example Kid Icarus uses slide pad and touch screen, this is very difficult for a left handed person. I doubt they will change this as the majority of people are right handed. :(

Hey guys,
i think it’s great that you’re trying to ask our individual questions too.
That said, I’d find it amazing if you could ask the following questions.

  • How does the transfer of DSiWare software work exactly ?
  • Will SNES games that used the SuperFX chip be made available on the 3DS ?
  • Are there any plans for a bigger screen version of the 3DS like the DSi XL ?
  • Aside from having the usual games with 3D effects are there already any games with mechanics that are only possible with the 3D technology the 3DS is bringing to the table ? Could you give some examples ?
  • Are there any plans to link software releases from the Virtual Console to the 3DS ? (Because it would be absolutely rad if you could play pre-N64-games on the go too. If you own one version you could pay an extra say like 100 points to download them on your Wii or 3DS too.)
  • Are there any plans to bring a new Donkey Kong Country game to the 3DS ? (Because I think the 3D effects of the Wii version could really benefit from being in true 3D.)
  • Are you aware that Donkey Kong Country Returns on the Wii actually sets the standard of how classic 2D games should be like with true 3D effects ?
  • Are there any plans for a Wii (successor) that enables 3D effects like the 3DS's ?

And as much as I hope that some of these questions get answered I’m not very optimistic. I mean we all know our Big N, right ? Nevertheless, thanks in advance.

Is the system really region locked (doubt Nintendo will be willing to say)? Can you make Miis with unrealistic hair and eyes (I want a Mii with blue hair, so what?)?

@cjt:
I'm quite sure if the 3DS and its software sell well and they can improve battery life, brightness and so on there will be another model. And as fast as technology progresses i am quite sure in about a year or two we could see a 3DS XL. But i bet it's too early to have serious plans about that.

@LTD I totally agree - we'll see a bigger-screened version in future, and I would say it's probably already at the prototype stage, but there's no way they're going to announce a redesign at the launch event for the original machine.

toys r us just told me nintendo are not planning releasing exact price information at tomorrows event but using it to show games to public! Price may be revealed in a march press conference for Europe and England.

I hope this is not true.

Also gamestop tell me street fighter, nintendogs, pro evo, kid icarus and dj hero are likely launch titles in England.

I think they are just reading off confirmed games, not launch day titles unfortunatly.

One thing that I'd like to know is how heavy it is. Normally, weight isn't a problem for me, but I've had my pants sag constantly when trying to take my DS on the go.
Seeing people carrying 3DSs (in commercials) almost exclusively in bags has made my worries increase ten fold.

Will there be a 3DS XL version? There is no going back to the tiny screen once you've owned an XL......if there is no XL version, then no 3DS for me.
