i'd assume it'd be on the touchscreen, yoshdude, so you could tap buttons and rearrange your stuff (3DSware, 3DS camera app, 3DS sound, etc.) as you chose, just like on the DSi. even if it were to pause the game like on the Wii, i'd still expect it to be on the touchscreen so that you could hit the 'exit game' or 'resume game' buttons.

AVGN episodes are even better if you played the games back in the day. :3 I remember i used to have a friend who lived nearby when i was little, these dumb bible games were the only kinds of games they were allowed to have for their NES (even SMB was 'too violent', lol). we spent hours trying to beat those games... it really sucked, lol.

all right, guys, i know there were a lot of babes on-stage during Nintendo's E3 conference, but it's time for everyone to cool down. we've got kids visiting this site and the forums regularly, and we need to keep the topics a bit more G-rated than this.

@Adam: hotcakes probably wouldn't be super-popular, but okonomiyaki, perhaps. :3 either way, those people who hadn't played video games in a long time or ever have all come out from under their rocks to try the Wii. they're gonna look at K'nex and wonder what's so great about it if it's still doing what the Wii's already done game-wise.

@Braz: how is K'nex much cheaper? i think i missed that part of the price-of-new-360+price-of-new-peripheral+price-of-games-that-don't-suck equation...

@Adam: there's no way Wii Sports would've been such a phenomenon had it not been bundled with the Wii. It's decent enough as something to show what the console can do gameplay-wise (first with just the Wii, then WSR with the M+), but on its own... there are more interesting games to play, really.

i do agree with you that a sports game or a lame no-pedal racer will not be a draw to K'nex, though. even if people don't own a Wii, they've had more than enough chance to try one out for themselves to see what motion controls can be like. i think it's gonna be a 'been there, done that, what else have you got?' kind of thing. they'd have to bundle it with the fitness game or the dance game they showed during their conference to really get people interested in it for its games rather than its sheer novelty.

@Magi: funny that you bring up the thrown controllers... lol, i keep thinking some moron is gonna run or jump into their TV and knock it over on accident during a game like that hurdle-jumping race they showed, or even that adventure game with the coins to collect. whatever happens, i certainly hope they youtube it so we can all watch and laugh :3

It's not just the expense, a 3D touch screen would be destroyed very quickly, the moment the player needs to touch an object that is "deeper" within the 3D image than the physical touch screen surface.

not to mention that multiple sources have already said that if you're not looking dead-on at the 3D screen, it's a little bit blurred/fuzzy. I think it would be hard to concentrate on keeping both screens at the exact point you'd need to be able to see them both in clear 3D, not to mention how bad it'd be for those of us who don't like to play our DSes open flat. coming off'a the Lite's propensity for cracked hinges, i know i haven't opened my DSi all the way like that but once, and i'd be leery of doing it with a 3DS too.
