    What is the most common reason do you think people have for not wanting the 3DS?
    The options listed are real reasons I have seen various people post in verious forums.

    EDIT: Finally got option 4 to fit in one line.
    EDIT 2: I forgot to mention I have had one full pre-ordered since early January, please don't think I'm someone that objects to the 3DS.

    The launch titles, the fact that people don't realize it's not another revision of the DS, the price, and the fact that OoT isn't a launch title.

    I think people think the NGP is better because of graphics and all that stuff. Well guess what? They r two different things!! 3DS has 2 screens and 3 cameras!! 3ds has 3D. how much more different can it get?

    That's one of the options.
    All of the choices I posted came from various posts around GBATemp, as to why people aren't getting a 3DS.

    Last time I visited my parents and mentioned I had a 3DS pre-ordered first thing my dad mentioned that they're a bit expensive (at the time they were still ~£230 in the shops, i had a £200 pre-order) and that seems to be putting off the majority of people I know.

    Seems alot of people don't realise it's a new console, and are just assuming it yet another release of the DS (which after having the phat/lite/i/xl it's hardly surprising some may think that)

    See the option with "numerous things" in it, that basically means a combination of two or more of the things listed.

    Really? You DON'T have a battery life option?

    That's pretty sad.

    With the Nyko thing coming on launch, it's pretty useless, as everyone that said the battery is too short said they'll just get the Nyko thing. Vote for something else, I'll edit it in a way that works. Either that, or vote for Next Version, which will very likely have longer battery life, since Nintendo knows it's too short.

    EDIT: Modified.

    A majority of people don't even know how things like the Nyko even work. Since you are talking about the general public, you should have battery life in there.

    I was at a 3DS demo event. I heard one of the Nintendo reps pitching the 3DS as 'a DSi, but with a 3D screen'. I facepalmed.

    And this is why everyone thinks it's just another DS revision.

    I'd have interrupted him and corrected the customers he was talking to. He's just downright ignorant of the 3DS knowledge, he shouldn't be pitching something he doesn't know about.

    Yeah but that happens so much in electronics/computer/cellphones every sales person seems like an idiot to me. When they come up asking if I need help I basically make there knowledge of whatever it is look like garbage, then they look at me in 'awww' lol and I walk away. [​IMG]

    People tell me about this all the time like oh I was looking at cellphones and he could tell me these answers. Then I explain it to them and there like $hit why couldn't the person just say that to me you need to work there hahaha. Maybe if I could make good money as a little sales assoc. ... yeah right.

    People complaining about the price just makes me think of spoilt little kids bitching about how hard it will be to get their parents to fork out for it. For us working class folks, it's a not cheap but hey, nothing is these days.

    I think the launch titles are extremely boring, I probably won't even buy any of them. I'd rather give the new pokemon a try and just be content with whatever built in content to try the 3D out. Being someone who skipped the DSi, the technology leap does make it seem like a new console for me but I can see why someone would think that not much has really changed besides the 3D part.

    I have had one on preorder for weeks though, just to make sure the context of my post is right.

    Only reason I won't buy it is because I can't see the 3d effect, because of a lazy eye [​IMG]
