    why do nintendo not release system specs for the 3ds?
    Ign reported leaked specs and nintendo said nothing at all, not even the old rumour and speculation comment.
    We want to know what its capeable of, they keep saying we have to see it to understand... I know for a fact a spec sheet with a lot of detail would help me better understand than any advert.
    And whats the point of the charging cradle? Isnt it exactly the same as plugging it in directly?
    I am annoyed at the lack of information.

    Nintendo has always been reluctant, to say the least, to release the system specs, probably because it's just a bunch of numbers that has little to no bearing on what the system can actually do, and people tend to compare them to other bunches of numbers from other systems. None of which actually matter. The best way to see what the 3DS can do will be to pick up a 3DS and see what it does.

    What Veho said. Hardware has hardly been the main concern of Nintendo, especially 4 months from release. And the charging cradle is just for convenience.

    The average person doesn't give a fuck about the numbers inside, they just want to play some fun videogames. This is the majority of their user base.

    Therefore their announcements, being aimed at the majority, don't include that info.

    EDIT: Tired Rydian is tired.

    Nintendo knows how to make good use of hardware, especially those that aren't as powerful as what's out there right now.
