Comment: Did Luke Westaway do the motion capture for the original Resident Evil games?
Good: It's got a tone of Nintendo features which the DSi was missing, The graphics are much better than before
Bad: The camera is rely bad :-(
Comment: I think the main reason I like it is because I a gadget person and the 3DS tops the charts of the "I want" list. I Have been a big fan of Nintendo and like almost every one of their products (The DSi looked much better than it was). Overall I think its got a lot of potential especial with all the cool features that come packed in with the console (AR cards) but the camera quality is kind of annoying
Good: keeps Nintendo, a real games company, at the front
Bad: it will have significant physical side-effects on the player
Comment: I worked in virtual reality research for many years, also in Japan, and saw all the technologies Nintendo and other games companies, are now using. Simulated stereoscopic 3D has erratic effects on users, which include nausea (the 'barf zone') and headaches after 30 minutes+ play. Plus around 10% of the population don't need this as they don't see in stereo 3D naturally.
The SNES Virtuality headset in the 1990's needed an IPD (inter-pupilary distance) roller switch to allow for the fact that generated two-eye displays need to allow for the distance between the viewer's eyes being different, or the stereo effect causes more serious headaches and nausea.
I predict someone will sue soon ...
Good: 3D withough glasses
Bad: dont like games for nintendo ds's
Comment: doesn't really impress me
Bad: those people who who ruin it by saying its crap because theyre sony people
Good: Better graphics also 3d a lot of new stuff
Comment: well we'er talking about a truelly Revolutionary product with 3d photos,videos gyroscope streetpass,spotpass down games.great games as ocarina of time 3d,SSF IV,metal gear solid,resident evil,mario etc.
The only things i don't like is the price(250â‚¬)
And streetpass i don't want other people's mii's on my ds neither mine in others
Overall it's awesome i would totally recomend it to someone
Good: it will be brilliant for the children and adults alike, 3D without glasses at last
Bad: the people that moan about it, they are the ones that like to moan about everything
Comment: i am so looking forward to picking ares up on the 25th and cant wait to play with the family, all DS's are very esy to use as even my 3 year old little girl can play BUT it isn't easy to the point of being boring, WHY OH WHY do people say that not many people will buy it as they will, i reackon it will beat ipad 2 (im buying that to, as i love my ipad) as this is for aqlmost everyone from young children upto OAP's who want to play sudoko, allmost all DS games are brilliant and to see Sonic and Mario in 3D will be amazing, and the camara is that extra bonus mainly the 3D one, i know the pixals arnt the best, but you wouldn't hanve it as your main camara would you, so my final comment,
Good: the 3d
Comment: why is it when i asked the guy in my local game shop about the battery life he said 5-6 hours i dont think u charged it properly cus he had been on it all day i asked all the game shops they all said the same
Good: big leap from nintendo dsi in terms on getting a gyroscope, possible better internet browser for youtube, along side the aspect of 3d for amazing friends lol, and can be turned off to 2d :D
Bad: im not too concerned with batterly life, i reckon only bad aspect may be that the 3d has a limited viewing angle and the screen's on the device should have been bigger
Comment: already preordered, cant wait to get my hands on it :D
Good: not much
Bad: bad battery ,expensive games,n
Comment: not many people will buy this because the 3d is just a gimmick that will wear off fast especially with eye strain. you get 3 to 4 hours battery that is just pathetic this day and age the games are 35- 40 pounds each you can get a ps3 or xbox360. also this is a mobile games thing where people have there phones for games now like apple ios or android where games just as good as the 3ds and you get them from free on up
