    Post any outrageous idea you might have.

    Personally, I'd love if the 3DS was waterproof. I can't count the amount of times I've spilled liquids on my DS lite.

    Middle of the ocean.
    To hack and code things for me. Also it can unbrick itself while allowing me access to free roms. [​IMG]

    Non super outrageous would have to be scratchproof and waterproof.

    1: casing similar to the bottom half of the DSiXL (the shiny plastic on the top half, the DSlite, and DSi is very annoying with sweaty hands)
    2: more common media support (mp3, JPG, PNG, GIF, and several video formats)
    3: more freedom over a wallpaper (DSi right now randomly grabs a photo, would be nice to select which images and to be able to load images from your PC)
    4: high speed peripheral port (external blu-ray drive ftw* [​IMG] , would also be nice for "custom controllers" like the guitar hero grip on the DS)


    *imagine watching 3D bluray movies on a 3DS, watching 3D avatar in the backseat of a car

    Two touch screens . Size of dsi xl . Great battery . Two joy sticks. Two extra buttons where xy and ab is at. Better internet to the point to play videos online.

    Edit: better built on the R and L button.

    Behind you.
    - Classic controller/wiimote support. (just like the psp go with the ps3 controller)
    - A lot of internal memory (4GB, 8GB, 16GB)
    - A media player with many features
    - wi-fi and 3G online gaming
    - Virtual console with: gb, gbc, gba, dsiware and some small DS games
    - Possibility to make an account so you don't have to buy your downloaded games over and over again
    - Nice GUI with themes
    - Home menu

    an accessory to play GB and GBA and N64 cartridges! and a phone xD

    and a lot of internal space and a good music player, so it can replace compete with the iPod in the music market!

    Completely ridiculous, but awesome:

    - The ability to be a transformer
    - A toast slot just so I can say it also cooks my breakfast
    - The ability to stream games from your Wii and play them anywhere (most likely resulting in an immediate ban on aircraft due to one idiot swinging his nunchuck on a plane)
    - It's own theme music every time I take it out of my pocket
    - The ability to turn itself into a TV remote, as well as a house lighting controller
    - The ability to order take-out when I'm hungry
    - Not only region-free, but capable of translating any game without a patch.
    - An invisibility cloak

    Nah just gimme virtual console and an external storage option and I'm set. Internal space can be so limited but I'd like a decent amount of that too. Dunno if it'll hold up well with the iPod for music but it will completely obliterate it and the iPad as far as gaming goes. I don't care what anyone says, app store games are meh. I find it boring playing games on my iPod touch.

    i like it to be drop-proof as well, i cant count the number of ways my electronics died because of that.
    Scratch-proof -> death by stylus [​IMG] Well, not yet, but i really should get a decent screen protector one of these days..

    and i guess that's it.

    Oo, and it comes with replaceable screens [​IMG]

    GBA compatibility might be nice.

    It would be cool if i can use it as portable media player as well.

    Other than that, i don really wish for anything [​IMG]

    nah, i would like it to be able to transform into an arm-guard when i am not using it, maybe it will integrate itself with one of my arm.

    and like u mentioned in irc, sure i dont mind it being made of steel, but only if it has the ability to transform itself into an armour or a weapon too [​IMG]

    That way i will have motivation to exercise haha [​IMG]

    -Messenger?
    -Multitasking, so you could switch from your game progress to like MSN screen?
    -3G would be awesome but IT IS NOT happening..
    -Support for video and music files like .AVI and .MP3 - So you could play videos and listen music _BEFORE_ it gets a flashcarts
    -2 ANALOG STICKS OR ATLEAST 1 !! IT IS MUST

    Well i would like it if you could give it custom designs (kind of like Flashcart Skins).
    And HD pixels and the carts to be in GB sizes (1GB cart, 2GB, 2.5GB, 5GB etc.) because i hate the games being like 134.22MB because it could be pushed more if the carts were better...
