3 DS Japan Ad

It's the end of a long week, and perhaps you're taking a break from your weekend activities — gaming, perhaps? Now is the perfect time, then, to read a product description for 3DS that was clearly written by an individual that's never used one.

The following product description is from Sears, a retailer that covers a lot of bases in its stores. It seems that it's not necessarily a master of every product, based on the following description from its website.

When it comes to handheld gaming, you can't beat the three-dimensional fun of the Nintendo 3DS. While other handheld gaming systems focus on graphics and sound, Nintendo looked for a new and creative way to play games, this time in 3D. The technology in the Nintendo 3DS allows the user to view games and content in 3D without having to wear those silly glasses. Basically, the screen sends a different image to each eye so that you get the full effect of objects flying at you in three dimensions.

On the surface, the Nintendo 3DS might not look so different from its predecessor, the Nintendo DS. It still has two screens and the traditional game play buttons. However, this version, aside from offering three dimensional pictures, has a few added features to enhance your gaming experience. The 3DS has a built-in gyroscope, which means that moving your device will affect game play as much as hitting the down button. The 3DS also has 3 cameras so that you can get a clear picture every time. Plus, the 3DS allows you to project your games onto images of your room, which is pretty cool if you want to incorporate real-life objects into your gaming experience.

If you want to do something besides game, the 3DS can do that, too. You have the opportunity to download games and look at online content from your Nintendo DS. Additionally, the DS has a built-in GPS, which means you don't have to buy a separate Garmin or Tom-Tom when you take a road trip. You can also take a trip down memory lane by downloading and playing games from older systems like the Game Boy Advance, as well as games from the popular NES and Super NES console systems.

If you want a handheld gaming device that is easily to personalize and fun for the whole family, then a Nintendo 3DS should be exactly what you need. With a great variety of games for just about anyone, it is a fun and light-hearted system that can also produce realistic graphics and game play. You can play many of your favorite Wii games as well as games from the classic Nintendo systems anytime you want and anywhere you are, making this the ultimate accessory for long road trips and endless flights.

If the 3DS did work as a full-on GPS device in addition to playing SNES, Game Boy Advance and even Wii games, then its impressive sales would surely be on a whole new level. Unfortunately not even the New Nintendo 3DS has those capabilities.

Thanks for the laughs, Sears.
