    Some people this, some people that. Until "some people" is the majority of 3DS owners, it doesn't matter. It also isn't one design flaw. The touch screen wasn't made with thought to the top screen, the buttons under the touchscreen aren't sensitive enough for many people, and nobody even knows how Nintendo intended the hinge to be leaving the tightness all over the spectrum.

    It just seems he has a hatred for Nintendo and the 3ds and is completely biased against it. I'm not saying tthe 3ds is perfect but it sure isn't the piece of garbage he is making out to be and really people who complain about features not being added yet that can later be added with teh use of an online update are the same morons who demand the system be released as soon as possible. Who cares if the system is missing some features right now, they can and will still later be added via an update. I personally would rather be able to play with it soner and still get all the features eventually than play the exact same thing 3 months later.

    I'm against the release of incomplete products. Nintendo is better than this and I am pretty damn disappointed with them. I'm not gonna sugarcoat their fuck ups because of what is coming. All that matters is what is here now.

    one reason was definitely the games but also the price. U can justify the price with games but neither was justified. Infact i wanted to order one thru my bro but with the price and games, i decided let me wait and hope for something better

    Look even I can admit I didn't really know how many people feel this way nor do you. That some people could be most people, I do not really know.

    The matter is those people still bought them knowing very well those functions wasn't ready. That shows they look pass that.

    Doesn't even seem like it had enough room for the screens to match. They could have the top screen smaller, but then you complain about that.


    I can see those buttons can be manufactured wrong, but when made right you have to click them they're buttons. How do you know there many?


    And the last one what?

    Do you even own a 3DS?

    I didn't spend my money on an incomplete product. I know everything I do from the many owners of this forum. Many polls and "mah 3DS doesn't work right" threads are enough to give a more than fantastic idea of how well it works. The "if you don't own it, GTFO" mentality is only used when you are trying every last thing to ignore the fact that the 3DS isn't perfect.

    You can fanboy it up all you want. My opinion won't change.

    People complain about every single thing and that doesn't even mean they are the majority,
    the world is much bigger than this forum.

    My last comment on this is, I never said it was perfect,but it not as worst as you making it seem either.

    Granted, new products are always prone to problems like this when they first come out. As for the incomplete product, yes, it's a shame, esepcially the lack of the eshop. But the reason why I bought my 3DS is I see it as an investment. At E3, I saw many games that interested me. So when the time came and the 3DS was coming out, I bought it because I knew I was buying the games later on.

    And yes, the 3DS isn't perfect. Far from it actually. But many problem s seem to be isolated incidents or problems with early adopters.

    And you thought the 3DS had a worse launch than DS? Really? >__>

    They are only considered the majority because those that don't complain have no need to make a post about not complaining. [​IMG]

    So the 3DS doesn't have it's internet browser or eShop yet. So what? It will come, and soon too. Those weren't the reasons why the device is showing a drop in sales, so the absence of those features doesn't make it an incomplete product. If the 3DS launched, but couldn't display in 3D until a later update, then I would say it was launched as an incomplete product.

    Maybe they should have prolonged the release until more and better games were out. The launch selection has been terrible.

    I didn't find the launch lineup to be that bad; especially compared to the DS launch. And eh, that's what you get for being an early adopter. It was the same with the DS so I'm not worrying yet. I mean, look at the 3DS now and the amount of quality games that came out for it.

    At least the DS launch had Super Mario 64 which was a good 1st party title

    Steel Diver and Pilotwings doesn't cut it, and frankly should have been downloadable from the online store that should have launched with the 3DS. Street Figher IV is an awesome game, but it's an awesome game that almost everyone that was going to buy it has already bought.

    For the price of $250, there need to be at least 2 killer app games to get me to drop that kind of cash.

    3ds is really not what they thought it would be. its cool but it is far from great or mind blowing. the 3d looks good, but not enough to see a billion of em.

    plus not very many titles. they may be good titles, but not many at all.

    Yeah, and the 3DS will get Zelda soon. It sucks that it wasn't a launch title like they wanted but oh well.

    Street Fighter is still pretty good and so is Ridge Racer, actually.

    If they lowered the price to something that wouldn't cause me to starve for a month then sure.
    Right now its way too expensive.
    I mean really, who doesn't at least two DS systems or even three?

    Thing is way way too expensive. They should get that price lowered.

    Better games might be nice but when the console itself is too expensive then there's simply a lack of interest in anything that has to do with the console.

    PS3 did have some good games going for it, but no one really cared to take a look cause the machine itself was so expensive at first.

    Not to mention economies just about anywhere are having troubles, causing most people to completely skip entertainment all together.
    Minus some cheap stuff now and then.

    So ya, that price needs to lower down, stat.
    If not, then I guess I'll buy one in the next year or two.
    Besides, I'd rather have a 3DS-XL anyway.
    That thing is too small.

    What did they expect considering the 3DS is still a late Beta console! Think about it, no shop, no web browser, and a handful of poor games that are just a bit above shovelware quality. Heck, there have even been reports of games crashing and causing permanent filesystem corruption on the 3DS's NAND. It seems game companies are now releasing Beta level hardware, not just software and expecting to just "fix it later".
