    It's meh in my opinion. While using in-game graphics would have made it look bad to that kind of scale, using pre-rendered videos like those shown makes the system look like it can do much more than what it really can.

    i think it's okay, but it looks like a movie. not a gaming console.

    This. Sometimes I wonder why they just can't make something interesting like possible featured gameplay or the likes on ads. C'mon that TV ad looked pretty much something from the 90's except that it had a 3DS..

    This ad is a bit silly, in my opinion. It doesn't do much to show uninformed consumers what exactly the 3DS is, and what it's capable of. I've noticed that many people are automatically assuming that the 3DS isn't a new console, but yet another expansion to the DS line. This ad does little to clear up these misinformed masses. [​IMG]

    Also, the ad doesn't really highlight the 3D capabilities of the system, apart from its "take a look inside' tagline. I understand that actually showing us the 3D effects would be impossible with a standard TV, but a little emphasis on the 3D aspect would help. The ad simply seems like a generic game commercial, and it could just as easily been made into a regular DS or PSP commercial with little alteration. And heck, even with the "Take a look inside" tagline, the commercial could inadvertently imply that the 3DS isn't capable of having graphics that "pop out". That's no good!

    I don't think this will get many first-time-3DS-seers hyped. Try again, Nintendo! [​IMG]

    They should have stuck with the method they presented back at last year's E3 (where they attempted to have things pop out), but put more emphasis on the games.

    Warning: Spoilers inside!

    No but really, that was a dull commercial. They should've just played the video from E3. That one was cheesy, but better than this.

    Gotta' agree with geoflcl (as usual), they need to focus on the 3D aspect and that it's a new system.

    Yeah, to many people think it's another iteration of the DS.

    They are focusing on the 3D aspect...just not the popping out part of it. I'm sure most people will know it's a new system once it launches. But I guess having people know it sooner would raise the hype.
