I can't believe I haven't posted here yet. It looks really good, and I am so getting this. I hope it sells out well. :P

Looks pretty sweet to me. I gave bad credit for what it really looks like. But still...it pisses me off that Nintendo would release basically an updated version of the Nintendo DS...

Not exactly. It's not ANOTHER DS, it's the successor to the DS. It would be odd to leave behind the dual screens when thinking of a successor to a system with dual screens.

Now from DS/Lite to DSi is an upgrade to the DS because it uses similar looks, and uses the same games (97% of them). It's just an upgrade when you are talking about going from 67mhz to 133mhz or from 3in to 3.25in or from 4 brightness to 5 brightness, or even from DS menu to DSi menu. All and all, it's just an upgrade since it uses similar technology and works with the same games.

From DS to 3DS is another story. It's not simply an upgrade because of the large-scale changes to the system. From 67mhz to (from what I've heard) about 2.5ghz is a big change, from 4:3 to 16:9 is a difference (welll, on the top screen ;) ), from a 256x192 camera to a 640x480 camera resolution is a bbig change, from 2D to 3D dimensions wouldn't just be an upgrade. Going from no motion sensing to having motion sensing and gyro sensing isn't for an everyday upgrade. And going from a maximum 512megabyte card to a 2+GB gamecard is a large difference.

Sorry, I had to explain. XD

Remind me what a gyro sensor is again. ^_^"

The Home button on the Bottom Screen reminds me of the Wii's bottom screen. :P
Did they move the vol. control slider onto the top screen?
And the 360 degree slider looks awesome - though it repositions the left hand for Dpad games, making Dpad + L button play difficult...
That power button is precariously positioned - hopefully it has the 1 second press delay, otherwise... :\

"A gyroscope is a device for measuring or maintaining orientation, based on the principles of conservation of angular momentum."

Lol, I'm not sure that it helps. ^_^

And I have been researching a bit on some games that are going to be on 3DS, and their release dates are interesting. I think that the 3DS will come this year possibly in the US first according to some release dates for some games. For example, on GameSpot, Assassin's Creed: Lost Legacy is TBA 2010, which possibly means that the game will launch sometime this year. Which means that the 3DS could release this year for the US. It can't be released just in Japan this year, because Japan doesn't get these Assassin's Creed games and if they do, they never get it first. It always comes first in North America. I don't know, but it sounds like a possibility.

And here's the 3DS game case!

In the EB Games Australian website, the 3DS is priced at 348$ australian dollars. That's equivalent to 302 USD. I Hope that's not true. That's too much.

For a release price, given the tech in it, it's probably just a tad too much. But the prices will fall eventually, won't they?

Relx, reduce the size of your last image - it's too big.

VSM: I spolierized the image.

News: 3DS fixes Nintendo's piracy problem - THQ - ComputerAndVideoGames.com

"I actually asked Nintendo to explain the technology and they said it's very difficult to do so because it's so sophisticated," he continued. "They combated the piracy on Dsi, which they don't believe is cracked yet - but they know they've been hurt across the world and they believe the 3DS has got technology that can stop that.

Looks like if the 3DS games are cartridges then that means there will be no loading time which is really rare for a system stronger than the Wii... Anyway I hope 3DS games don't lag like PSP games do since a lot of PSP games have a lot lag at most times. >.>

I must admit, I am not a fan of the 3D function - what ever happened to good old 2D, eh? Back in the day, I tell you, we didn't need all these flashy 3D effects. But I am looking forward to the line-up of games it has.

Um, the PSP games don't lag.

I've been playing them/pirating them for a good 2 years and I've only had it lag once and that was because it was a crappy rip of the game.

Some do. Well, pirated games not as much because there's no on-board loader like for UMD's and there's no problems with things like dust or small particles like for UMD's, but most major games do lag terribly. Besides, there are barely any 60fps games on PSP in fact, I can't think of any.  ;/
