    Well, the only reason I got a DSLite and DSi is the previous one would get broken somehow. The phat DS has a broken hinge, and the DSLite now has a broken hinge, a sticky R key and a messed up screen. D:

    Anyway... I'll probably get this eventually, but its features will determine how soon.

    Rather or not it's a gimmick depends on how the developers use it. For instance, the Wii's library is very "gimicky" because of how developers made games for it. Many party games relying on motion controls. The DS's games were all touch screen centered at first, too, so expect the 3DS's first few waves of titles to be 3D centered. But it'll quickly stop.

    That's all speculation though. I'll wait for E3 when Nintendo reveals the information.

    I just saw this kickarse video for a possibility of what 3D technology they could be using. Pray, pray this wasn't patented...

    Ontopic: I'm looking forward to this one, sounds like it's going to be awesome! I have a DSi now, but as long as the 3DS doesn't cost too much, I'll buy it. It's great to hear it has backwards compatibility too, so I won't have to carry around lots of different consoles

    I don't know for sure. But not only does it make the most sense it's really the only way to achieve 3D without glasses.

    No, that's not speculation. Some of it is, but the analog stick part wasn't.

    Yeah it is, Nintendo hasn't released any details of the console yet. The PR said they would release them at E3. If that isn't speculation I'd like the official source O_o

    I 'm really curious to see how 3D games can work. Especially in a handheld system and how it will affect Pokemon in general.

    The vibration and analog nub is awesome too, imagine the possibilities J/k, but analog nubs are way more precise than just buttons. And if you don't like them, there'll still be D-pad and buttons

    What exactly do you deem to be "precise" because if we're going reaction time here buttons react much quicker than analog sticks. Analog stick allow for greater movement, other than that there's not much.

    All I have to say is: Nintendo, don't screw this up.
    Meh, I'll probably still buy it.

    Guys, keep in mind the analog and rumble are just rumors.

    Can you not be nuisance for once? Like, no disrespect or anything, but everytime someone says something you totally lay an egg and try to explode with some funny insult but it only makes you look like an idiot. ._____.

    Besides that I'm really skeptical on the 3D thing, and how much the price will be. I hope it's around what a DS cost when it first came out. (the brick one, ladies, and gentlemen). Ahaha, The 3D thing, admittedly, kinda sounds something along the lines of a fail idea. But I'll have to see about that when it comes out. XD

    Hell yeah. HGSS had quite the amount of 3D models, which I was very pleased with. I very much hope we get more of these in the future.

    I love the rumors of a built-in Rumble Pack and Tilt controls though. Tilt controls would add a whole new dimension to the games. If this thing is powered by Tegra 2, it should be able to rival the Gamecube in graphic capabilities, which is a huge step up from the pixel-y DS.
    Ironically, in terms of graphics, I remember somewhere in some article stating that the DS was going to have GC like graphics. Look how that turned out.

    Also note how they said it was compatible with DS and DSi games, meaning that there are cameras in it. Hopefully they step up the game and make the cameras high-quality.
    Good lord, when you think about it, that's going to crank the Gen3-V compatibility list to about 20 games. No, I'm not kidding.

    Improved battery life and extended wireless capabilities are always a plus for me. IMO, Nintendo should work towards communicating with people all over the world without having to use a Wi-Fi connection (meaning you could be in the Amazon jungle and still be able to use the GTS in Pokemon).
    That's a bit much methinks...

    Considering the DS is gaining more popularity than the Wii, it's not surprising.

    I do agree with Dattebayo, though - just another company hopping on the 3d bandwagon.
    As long as they do it right, I could care less.

    We need to wait till E3... so try a little bit further than that. Like say... Early 11, maybe, for Japan.

    And here I thought we all knew Nintendo better than that.

    It's not that kind of 3D.

    Which isn't a bad thing, mind you.

    I wonder if its this 3d: http://gonintendo.com/viewstory.php?id=118193 or movie theater style 3d without glasses? Though, I doubt it's the 3d I linked to, because that could be achieved wth simply the accelometer it's confirmed to have.
    Either way, it would boost visual appeal.

    That sounds terrific on paper, but it loses something if you try and translate that to reality. These screens, supposedly won't be anywhere near the size of the XL and may not be that much larger than what the DSi gives us.

    With that in mind, what good are eye-popping graphics if the screens on which you're playing them aren't even 4 inches?

    You're leaping to a conclusion here. To date, the only titles to make use of the camera are DSiWare titles. Is it impossible that there will be some means of transferring your downloaded material to this 3DS? Not at all. Does their wording the announcement like that mean there will be cameras? Also not at all.

    Not to jump to any definites here, but I would say, for now, that including DSi software with the DS in that sentence is more to cover their bases, in the event that they release an actual, physical, DSi-only game card in the next year leading up to the 3DS, more so than I would take it as a guarantee of cameras built into the hardware.

    If it were that simple, they would. You know this, I'm sure, but wireless Internet without Wi-Fi means you need a cellular data connection, and including that usually means you either have to pay a monthly subscription cost or drive up the price of the unit exponentially. You can imagine why Nintendo wouldn't see either as worthwhile endeavors for a new handheld.

    It's probably also worth mentioning that cellular reception in the Amazon is probably still a bit spotty.

    Nintendo has never released a handheld for more than $190 American, which is what an XL costs. The DS launched at $150, the DS Lite at $130 and the DSi at $170. They wouldn't be developing a new handheld if they weren't positive they could sell it at a similar price point.

    It's also a possibility, however, that they use a camera for face tracking for 3D. Similar to what the DSi does right now.

    It's very much a possibility, certainly. The point was simply that just because they mentioned the hardware as having full compatibility with DS and DSi software is not, in and of itself, a guarantee of any other inclusions.

    When they say it's compatible with DSi software, do you think that includes DSiWare? Cause I'd hate to lose the games I've downloaded.

    Well as we're discussing right now it's not entirely clear. The PR makes it sound that way, but of course Nintendo may actually come out with DS games that only work on DSis.

    I read somewhere something about being backwards compatible with normal DS games, is this true?

    And with this I'm guessing I'm going to have to keep my DS lite or GBA if I want to play GBA games? Or is there a chance that this 3DS will be compatible with GBA games?

    Yes. That sort of thing really should be put in the first post so people can get the rundown, but I suppose I'm expecting too much.

    None. They aren't going to include backwards compatibility with a format that will be two generations defunct.
