    Is anybody else somewhat disappointed from the announcement?

    Here are some things that I'm worried/let down about:
    - Price.
    - Only GB/GBA/GBC Virtual Console?
    - Release date.
    - For the price, the unit looks somewhat cheap.
    - The re-addition of the volume "slider", as opposed to the excellent DSi and DSi XL volume buttons.

    However, I'm happy about:
    - Tag mode.
    - Swapping your DSiWare games to the 3DS.
    - Mii's!
    - The games mostly look fantastic visually, excluding that crummy Japanese baseball title.
    - Strong major titles from major developers.
    - The non-fingerprint attracting material coming back from the DSi.

    I think that the release date, let alone the price, are hardly nitpicking.
    No need to take offense, I'm not attacking the 3DS at all. This is just discussion.

    What do you mean by "only"? What other games could they have put on the VC? [​IMG]

    It's like a portable wii with 3D + multitasking+GBA+GBC+GB virtual Consol (so far maybe more will come remember wii didn't have that many different game systems in the start) + 3D camera + tons of more fun stuff.
    I think the it's a fair price. Late release date? hmm i rather wait a little more and let them make the 3DS better. There must be a reason for a late release, probably nintendo is not done with the 3DS yet. Often longer to release=development=more stuff [​IMG]

    I have nothing to complain about

    Release date is perfect for me. It means that the quality of the launch titles will be higher than if they were released sooner, look at most of the Wii launch titles and see the rush jobs there. Publishers have the choice to have six more months to polish these titles up and six months extra time is better than no extra time.

    Price is fine by me and expected seeing the DSi LL was 20000 yen last year at launch and at its core is pretty much 6 year old tech that wasn't that cutting edge when released back then.

    3DS is far more advanced in many ways and has more packed with it. I would like to have known how much games will cost, I'd pay £30-£35 depending on the title but I wouldn't pay PS3/360 prices at all seeing 3DS games wont cost as much the make.

    Only GB/GBC/GBA? Only? Nintendo has only announced those SO FAR! Remember that the Wii VC didn't have as many consoles on it like it does now. I'm really hoping for some Neo Geo Pocket Colour titles and maybe some Virtual Boy...they have to finally have the excellent Wario Land VB on machine that will actuall sell.

    However there is supposed to be separate announcements today for other Nintendo regions so maybe we'll get more details.

    I think the price is pretty good, I wouldn't mind paying about $200 for it, considering I spent much more on other shit, and it looks okay to me, a friend of mine went to E3, and he said it didn't feel too bad, it actually felt pretty nice in the hand. I wouldn't to get protection for it too, considering my sister is messy and is dangerous to handhelds, and my little cousin that I'm babysitting is even worse. Release date isn't too bad for me, either, and the games and the new features are spectacular! I wouldn't mind selling my PSP for it.

    EDIT: fixed some stuffs.

    I suppose there is some hope that they'll announce more VC consoles, but you'd think that the information given to Japan audiences would be mainly the same as given to other countires. Of course, excluding exact release dates and pricing. But here's hoping that they'll add in some more consoles.

    I don't see this happening when they've already done OoT & StarFox 64. I can imagine them getting a fair amount of criticism for it. Other devs would probably want to do the same, make existing N64 games look a little better, keep costs down and charge full price at retail.

    It also depends on N64 emulation, I know PSP can't emulate quite a lot of games at the moment and we really just don't know what is in this thing until Nintendo tell us.

    I guess that would be better, too. And there will probably be a SSB game out for 3DS, which would make things even better.

    I hope you realize that EVERYONE says for EVERY console gen for a handheld in Nintendo's realm that "Oh there will be a SSB game!" There isn't. They adamantly are keeping it as a console franchise. And really, who would want to play it elsewhere? It works fantastically as a local multiplayer game and not the same experience on a bunch of handhelds. Sitting in a room with three other buds beating the crap out of each other in SSB is one of the few great pleasures you can get from local multiplayer.

    It'll be lowered for the release in america.
    Japan has stuff at a higher price.
    You can't just translate the japanese price and be like ZOMFG THE AMERICAN PRICE IS SO MUCH.

    Yeah I seem to recall the director of the series saying they will only be doing each game on better hardware then the last entry. Saying that, that MGS3D video is showing stuff I've not ever seen done on the Wii.

    i think you meant fuck.

    also yeah dickish price, seriously out of wack - you know the games aren't for free, so buying some 2-3 games on launch with it will set you back like what about 450$ ... ooookaaaay.

    They COULD put SBB on the 3DS.
    But they COULD not put it on the 3DS.
    They're most likely not though cause it's a Home Console franchise (french fries [​IMG])
    But yes the game would look good on the 3DS cause of the 3D, especially when you pause and zoom in.
