    Okay... I just noticed that... I didn't find a stylus in my 3DS box, but every damn list says it had to be in there somewhere.
    But... I can't seem to find it! Where the hell did Nintendo hide it? (I feel so stupid right now... :X)

    Maybe they put all the extra styluses with the packages containing screen protectors and kits XD

    I had went to but screen protectors but I had to buy a mini kit with screen protectors, three stylus, cloths, and a game container thing

    You still have to use a stylus? Lame. I was hoping that the technology would be good enough we dont have to use them anymore.

    Nope, sorry. The technology isn't good enough yet for our fingers to shrink to the size necessary for precise touch-screen gestures.

    (Biting sarcasm aside, you can use your fingers in almost any DS or 3DS game (some exceptions like Elite Beat Agents and this Ouendan game I've heard so much about lately), just don't expect to be perfectly accurate.)

    Getting tired of people saying this...Nintendo could have easily went with a capacitative touchscreen, but they didn't for good reason.

    But as for finding the stylus...couldn't you have just felt up the 3DS?

    Ur so funnay wit ur sarcamsm and ztuff heehehehhe


    I'd love to see you playing Pokémon Rangers, EBA, DS Zelda games and other games that require good touch screen control properly with your fingers.

    Not to mention some people (myself included)don't like using their fingers on games.

    I think it's really stupid they put the stylus in the top left side of the DS. I'll keep trying to pull it out of the right side as it is in the DS lite. [​IMG]

    agreed. but I can't help but believe that they put it there because it was the only availible place to put it. The top right side has the charging port, the right side has the wireless switch, although that's not a good excuse. Maybe it was simply because it would ruin the layer-based design if they put it on either side.

    The 3DS screen is small enough as it is, using your fingers with a capacitive screen would just get in the way.
