    I sure hope so. That'd be the most uncomfortable-looking analog nub I've ever seen that wasn't attached to a PSP.

    you need 2 cameras for a 3d picture that someone else posted in a thread that 3ds might have a 3d camera
    3ds is all about perspective and you have to see from 2 different angles to create a 3d image
    so therefore there are 2 cameras at 2 angles to make a 3d camera or image

    Obviously fake, looks waaayy too similar to NDS lite. And also i wouldnt expect it to be that thin. I would expect atleast the width of the phat ds.

    the 2 cameras make sense, but I gotta say that if the 3ds is even remotely like this, well I'm rather underimpressed. Its looks like a new dsi more than a next generation handheld. Props to the OP for posting though, its kinda fun to speculate.

    As said above, the buttons give it away. They're flat [​IMG] It's either hilariously fake, one of the worst console designs ever, or a terrible image.

    Oh I'd also like to point out how having the power button so close to the analog nub is a big "wtf".

    This is the worst design I've ever seen, because it looks exactly like a DSi. I can't believe they bothered to make a magazine spoof just for this piece of shit.

    If this is true then it would suck.....

    If it's fake let the lord be praised.

    its just a DSi with larger screens and an analog nub, which, as somebody pointed out, is way too close to the power button.
    "Now lets just walk backwards to get to the save point, and... FFFFFFFFFFFFFFF-!"
    Who could possibly fall for this?
