    The 3DS is the most amazing handheld device I have heard about in gaming history! I'll tell you why.

    - 3D without glasses
    That alone is amazing. Especially in a portable handheld. Imagine playing an FPS with depth. You can guage how far the enemies are from you or simply experience the wow of the 3D visuals literally popping out of the screen. The 3D Slider is a wonderful idea. It works perfectly with a handheld system. I don't think I need to elaborate on this anymore. It basically sells itself!

    - The Design
    The 3DS simply put is beautiful. Everything looks so elegant. It doesn't look like a Fisher Price toy (Wii) or an Apple device (DS Lite). I normally wouldn't rave over the design of a device without seeing it in person first but this is an exception. This deserves to be praised. It's simply wonderful!

    - Game Selection
    Resident Evil: Revelations has the most amazing graphics I've seen on a handheld system. Metal Gear Solid: Snake Eater looks amazing! I'm glad Kojima is making it into an actual 3DS game! Mario Kart 3DS is an obvious choice. I hope to see how Nintendo makes use of 3D visuals in Mario Kart. Star Fox 3DS is great and all but the single 3DS title that makes this a must-buy is Zelda: Ocarina of Time!

    - Awesome Top Screen

    The touch screen might not be anything special but the top one sure is! It's a beautiful 15:9 screen. The PSP's screen is mediocre compared to this one. This one is much better! Sexy 16:9 15:9 top screen combined with an awesome touch screen. That's epic win!

    - Versatility

    The vast amount of stuff packed into this handheld device is shocking. This is what I'll carry on long car trips and when on the bus. No need for me to bring a media player. I can watch 3D movies and play music straight on this! Tag Mode will allow me to get in game bonuses. It even works when the 3DS is in sleep-mode!

    tl;dr version: Nintendo is god and god made awesome device.[/endfanboyrant]

    Hater? Me? I was talking to metamaster. He created a thread preaching the dangers of 3D and how we're all going to permanently lose depth perception.

    I hope they've improved the touchscreen as well, so it includes multi-touch and pressure sensing.

    Wow really? OoT was a solid good game, I'll agree that but a remake of a game almost everyone has played...is a must-buy? Pass. Kid Icarus looks so much better.

    I'd rather Majora's Mask. Ah well, we'll probably get it a year after OoT.

    The depth perception thing is the only "issue" with the 3DS. It can be avoided by turning off the 3D. Don't get me wrong, it's an exceptional system, with incredible features.

    Words can't describe how happy I'd be if that came true.

    Next thing you know it, the 3DS will get an advanced app store, super awesome ui customization, can call people with a built in phone app, and can make my cat talk [​IMG]

    wait, forget about the talking cat part, my dsl can do that.

    Yep!
    It's immediately obvious! If you want extra confirmation, when it comes out and I get it I'll make an updated version of the article.

    I don't want to ruin my eyes lol. This is long term anyway so you wouldn't notice it at first. But anyways, I didn't mean to start a war, let's just accept that we have different opinions and leave it at that.
