Good: Fantastic product the console graphics and a huge step foward from the DS and the analog stick is a great addition to the 3DS and helps the 3DS to play games with more difficult controls which isnt possible with a D pad. The 3D features are also fantastic and are suprsingly better than I imagined.
Bad: The battery life isn't high and the 3D is only at its best from a certain angle.
Comment: Great console overall. Release games are good and I would like to see the features of this console put into use in the far future.
Good: Amazing 3D Display, Futuristic Handheld
Bad: 2 Â½ Hour Battery Life
Comment: Recommend the new psp out christmas.
Good: the 3D
Bad: The size and the 3D sounds flimsy
Comment: I don't no its just not my type.Plus it look's to big. But don't get me wrong it will be a good console.
Comment: it could just be another iphone 4!!!
Good: They've gotten in early and will profit on the concept
Bad: 3D gaming in general is just a gimmick, poor viewing angles, bulky hardware, expensive
Comment: I just recently bought a DSi. I love how slim the device is, and it can play all upcoming DS games that I'm interested in. Personally I think that the rise of 3D is getting irritating, just another gimmick that can be used to raise prices or be implemented really poorly. I've heard that the viewing angles on the 3DS are very limited, and once you move it too far you lose the effect completely.
I'd like to see how well it is done, but I don't think I'll ever be buying one.
