    I liked the way that the 3DS words come with red, it is so cool, and i guess that the system reminds me of the Wii system.

    I was under the impression that you could multitask, is that not the case anymore?

    That actually looks really cool. You can tell where things would pop out of the screen at you. Man, I can't wait to get my hands on it [​IMG]

    I personally like the little 3DS intro for every game.


    Still, very similar to the DS and the Wii. I hoped that they would do something a bit... more... different?

    You CAN multitask. Apparently, it doesn't apply to every software. Game notepad, web browser and some other applications will definetly be allowed while playing.

    On the other hand, games themselves (meaning not only (3)DS(i)Ware but AR games and probably Mii Plaza too) are not allowed.

    I wish the video embedded properly but at least the source link worked!

    (after watching) This is definitely the best and most informative 3DS video so far, although I'm now concerned about frequent "take a break" prompts, yuck.

    Fixed, the quote tag was preventing the video to show properly

    Thank you.


    I'm sure that some really powerful things like the cameras and games can't be run simultaneously. It only makes sense.

    I can't seem to find your point.

    (no negativity in that, just wondering)

    Although I do not like the warning things, I might lesson to it. O.o [​IMG]

    What he means is that even a really powerful console like the PS3 can't fully multi-task.

    It probably can. Sony most likely wasn't bright enough to program it.

    Actually, the PS3 really does have "true" multi-tasking in the sense that the game is really just paused and is taking up as much resources as if you were playing it.

    the sound card sounds SOOOOO much BETTER!!!!
    and the interface looks like a copy of the wii'
    the "home menu" and all
    even the game plays game related music when selected
    AWESOME!!!!!
