Obviously it will make it better, but to answer your question, I don't think they've had a playable demo at any events yet.

He meant Mario Kart DS, not Mario Kart 3DS

Lol. Wow, I honestly didn't even read it. I should start doing that.

Edit:

My contribution to this topic: I played Metroid Prime: Hunters on my 3DS, and it made it easier to move.

Works great, the only thing I was disappointed about with DS games in general is that my router isn't recognised because of WPA2 security, in DS mode, it still only stuck using WEP or none.

It'll make the gameplay less painful on your thumb, that's for sure.

No extra sensitivity though; You're still going in those 8 directions.

Tried it out a few days after I got my 3DS. Definitely a lot easier to control. Metroid Prime Hunters, Custom Robo DS, and Animal Crossing also benefit from the analog control.

Mario Kart was the death of my DS phat like many N64 controllers before it... Eventually the R button and Dpad stopped working altogether. At first I didn't want to play it on the 3DS, but it's okay if you take it easy. The Dpad is a lot more durable than the DS lites, still not as good as the phat though. As for the analogue stick, it makes it feel better to drive but it's useless at a professional level. It would be like using the wii wheel in MKwii, huge disadvantage.

I tip my hat to anyone who can get a time like this using the analogue

Cool, thanks for the replies guys. I did indeed mean MArio Kart DS not the upcoming 3DS title.I probably should have mentioned that in the post instead of just the title. From the sounds of it, looks like the analog stick helps but does not function at full capabilities.Not surprised by this, MKDS was not programed to take advantage of analog controls.

  • The Real Jdbye @ The Real Jdbye:
    very dark scenes are more common than very bright scenes so i think i made the right choice

  • The Real Jdbye @ The Real Jdbye:
    there was also a sony with worse local dimming and the glow was really apparent
    Gift
  • SG854 @ SG854:
    Human vision is non linear anyway. 100 nits is about 50% of the peak output of a 10,000 nit display.

    "very dark scenes are more common than very bright scenes" not in the games i play

  • The Real Jdbye @ The Real Jdbye:
    really have to buy the top end model to get a tv that doesnt have any of those compromises and that would've had more dimming zones too but i am not made o money

  • The Real Jdbye @ The Real Jdbye:
    @Julie_Pilgrim "very bright" is essentially pure white

  • The Real Jdbye @ The Real Jdbye:
    pure white doesn't show up all that much it's mainly when looking at a bright sky

  • The Real Jdbye @ The Real Jdbye:
    and if the clouds in the sky have slightly less definition to them because i turned on the contrast enhancer who cares

    that's not important

    i can't tell the difference

  • The Real Jdbye @ The Real Jdbye:
    but i can certainly tell the difference with black crush if i'm watching a scifi movie and i can't see wtf is going on

  • SG854 @ SG854:
    Human vision is logarithmic, it's not linear. And nits doesn't tell the whole story of perceived brightness. OLED'S look brighter then LCD's even when both are set to the same nit values because of the higher contrast ratio on OLED's

    OLED's have a 3D look

    Charging port is more likely to fry up or battery fail before the display tbh lol

  • The Real Jdbye @ The Real Jdbye:
    "And nits doesn't tell the whole story of perceived brightness" it's not about perceived brightness it's about all HDR content in TV and movies being mastered for 1000 nits so it doesn't look right with anything lower, it's also about dynamic range

  • The Real Jdbye @ The Real Jdbye:
    "OLED's have a 3D look" no they don't lol
    Gift
  • SG854 @ SG854:
    As an owner of a OLED and you saying that you never seen an OLED I think I know what I'm talking about lol. I'm not talking about 3D as in 3D glasses. I'm talking about depth and pop in the picture

    I mean to be fair og vitas are still kicking and not many have suffered from pixel bleed and they're going on nearly 10 years
    Gift
  • SG854 @ SG854:
    OLED's can get away with a lower peak brightness and still provide punchy HDR because of their contrast ratio. Like I said human vision is logarithmic. The higher the peak brightness the diminishing returns in perceived brightness.

    Just get 5 years enjoyment out of it until Nintendy releases something and everyone forgets about switch games lol

  • SG854 @ SG854:
    @The Real Jdbye Oleds hit around 750 nits nowadays. The difference between a 1000 nit and a 750 nit isn't huge. It's only about a 4% increase in perceived brightness. Not huge at all. You'll need at least 2000 nit displays to notice a bigger difference.
    Gift
  • SG854 @ SG854:
    Read this thread it explains it. 1000 nits is not a huge jump from 750 the LG OLEDs can hit. As I said human vision is non linear.
