I really cannot believe this. Nintendo is going to sucker you all in again, and being the consumer whores you are all (Sorry, its true, who will be the first to get one?!!?! WHO CARES) you will all flock to buy a new 3ds, when lets be honest, this thing will just be another gimmick system. I warned you all that the DSI was the same thing, but nay, you all thought it would be the next coming, and yet I ask, what has been so great about the DSI? What greatness that camera has achieved! And not to mention card slot! Amazingly, I have experienced all the great aspects of the DS without owning a DSI, why you ask is that? No major game company will release a full huge hit game DSI only, or they cut out more than half of their consumer base. The DSI is a gimmick just as the 3ds will be. Do you ever think there will be a zelda, pokemon, etc DSI exclusive? Hah. Utter ignorance. Every major DS title will be compatible on all DS systems, it would be bad business otherwise. The 3DS will be no different, they would need to overhaul the DS so drastically that, it would (and the only way the 3ds could be decent) be a whole new system. Now while I agree that portables are great for 3d, as its a single person experience and can really provide an immersed experience, Nintendo will fail at it, and provide another game system with a gimmick, and unless some wholly amazing game is released in 3d when the system launches, the 3d will fall into the gimmick graveyard with the cameras, and printers, and card scanners. Not to mention the price point of a 3d handheld has to be pretty high, and thus sacrifices one of the major advantages the DS has, as it is cheaper than the PSP. What will we ultimately see when the 3ds comes out? We'll get a handheld, probably with a good set of titles, where the 3d is hardly used, or if it is, it will be half assed. Cheesy 3-d cart racing, 900,9876 JRPGS that have some half assed 3d effects. Nintendo has never panned out on anything for the DS/DSI except a solid library of games. Lets look at some of the features. Wi-fi- Not nearly used as often or as robustly as it could be. Camera- When was the last time you actually used it? SD slot- Don't even know why they put it in there. The DSI XL- I am not sure why this entire system was made I use the alarm clock function on my DS more than anything else, atleast they got that right. Nintendo, is simply following apple's game plan of periodic hardware improvements, so they can extend the life of a product whilst driving sales, sadly atleast apple does improve on their products, smaller, more storage, touch screen, bigger screen etc. all Nintendo has been doing is adding gimmick to the last actual improvement of the DS which was the DS lite, the DS lite made sense. The rest of this bull like the DSI, DSI XL, and eventually the 3ds are there to do one thing, make more money with as little effort on nintendo's part as possible. If that weren't the case, Wi-fi would be more solid, you'd have a reason to use that camera, and there would be really deep solid games to DL for the DSI. I can't wait for you all to buy this when it comes out, and then kick yourselves in the ass when you realize you just bought another more expensive DS to end up playing the same games that every one else is playing on their DS 's and DS lites. Nintendo has you all eating out of their hand, disgusting. Open your eyes, or we'll be buying new gimmick DS's for the next 5 years. Moots. You've been warned.
