Thank fuck for that.
We do need SDXC support
i'd still use my iPod.
glad to see that they're finally using mp3 now though.
Theres a reason most people call ipods "mp3 players" It's only like the most popular music format out there. Nintendo would be gay as Paul Reuben if they didn't support it.
Yeah SDXC support would have been a better choice. Console manufacturers seem to always be a step behind one one thing or another. lol. At least Nintendo finally puts out a new console rather than a 4th rehash of the same sh!t. My DSi is covered with a thick coat of dust. True it is far superior to the DS and DS Lite but the games essentially look the same And that DSi XL is a blunder. Too big clunky geeky looking gadget. I'll stick with the DSi and now the 3DS will be a welcome addition.
And also thank God for everything. An iPhone 4 costs $600, 3DS is only $250 and does everything and more than I would want from that overpriced Apple product. The current generation of iPod Touch is disappointing for me too because it doesn't have the aesthetics of the iPhone 4. Lame. lol. Nintendo will always win on the handheld market. The 3DS is pure absolute proof of that.
Would be interesting to me if the speakers don't suck like the DSi's did. Oh well, I have my iPod for music.
On the topic of SDXC, it would be nice, but honestly, how many of you even own an SDXC card? It's pointless to them because they don't think the audience they're trying to reach are going to buy $100+ SD cards to use for the 3DS, or already have one.
But if the 3ds lasts 4-5 years how much will the cards be then?
Ah, more costs for Nintendo. Seems like the 3DS isn't that cheap to produce at all. Has anyone taken a look at the MP3 licencing costs/royalty?
You're thinking about right now, in the present. In a few years, those cards will drop in price.
I've checked around, and saw that many SD card readers that have SDHC support have been known to be extended to SDXC support by updating the drivers/firmware. I know the Wii didn't have SDHC support until later on via system update, so it's possible they are capable of it again with the 3DS and SDXC support, but I dunno.
They're doing it right this time.
And 10,000 Sony fanboys cried that day...having lost one of the few legitimate advantages the PSP has over the ds
Wow did not know there was a licensing cost.
Hardware: decoder: $0.75 per unit? Wow, hefty
There are a lot of people in this world dude...
Already heard from another site, kinda useless if you think about it, you got phones, ipods whatever better suited listening to music. This is one featue I will not be using. Now if there was a video player or something yeah I'd love it!
$0.75 X roughly 2,000,000 units per region (US, UK, JP) which is a total of 6,000,000 3DS systems = $4,500,000. That's a LOT of money!
Well by that logic, they shouldn't make consoles at all! If one 3DS costs $200 to make (numbers pulled out of ass), that's $200 X roughly 2,000,000 units per region, that's a total of such a LOT of money, it makes your lot of money look miniscule in comparison. Initial investments are huge, they wouldn't even notice the extra $0.75 per unit. And besides, they could just charge an extra $1 per unit, and come out ahead
What else is in there?
I totally agree with you. Honestly, conversations like this makes me wonder exactly how much it cost to produce a console. When you think about R&D, production, advertisement, shipping, ect, it's insane! Starting with next gen, maybe the NPD should tally up this stuff.
