Just curious...is the 3DS' battery life better than the DSi's when regular DS games are played? I think my DSi's battery has lost some of its juice that it runs out quickly now (just charged 6 hours ago and it already ran out - I was playing on lowest brightness and Wi-Fi off and I didn't play it straight)

Thanks

The battery life is better then when the 3DS plays games in 3D... I get about 7-8 hours for DS games. Maybe more, but I can't be too sure.

Still worse then the DSi.

yes
Oh wow how shocking. I guess I'm gonna stick with my DSi. Pity I preferred playing with the much more comfortable 3DS buttons

They should have improved the battery life for 3DS. I could play at least 11 hours in my DS Lite (DS games), and around 17 hours for GBA games. I love the 3DS and I'm going to get one soon, but I think they did a terrible job hardware-wise.
