    And please as if nintendo would come out with something that would harm people. They learned their lesson with the virtual boy.

    It seems that Nintendo is going into the whole 3D craze as well. I blame hollywood for this (not really). Anyway, I'm not sure if I'll get it in day one because I'm still saving my money for Disneyland.

    It's about time.

    Though I'm dying to see the hard specs of the device itself..

    It's funny because I remember nintendo complaining that 3D would immerse a gamer into a game too much. Now they're using it.

    Show me games or I don't care. It's too early for me to able to judge the system based on it's library, so I am not really interested. (Pokemon Gen 5 would be a good start, though I would probably be irritaed about having to buy a new handheld for it, so 5th gen would have to be a big step up.)

    In the article it specifically says Nintendo is looking up possible health side effects.

    Oh...I just got the "pun". 3DS as in 3D graphics. Haha. Wonder what the "S" stands for unless it's just there to connect this console to the normal DS. Anyway, not the kind of thing I was expecting to see this early. Apparently it won't be released for quite a while, which is a bummer. Some people were hoping to see Pokemon's Gen 5 on that thing. I want to see what the 3DS can handle

    Yup. That and giving kids siezures right?

    3D doesn't seem very refreshing to me. It's new to the game market, yes, but a gimmick's a gimmick, and it really doesn't seem worth it to spend my hard-earned $160+ on a system that relies on 3D alone as it's main hook when a newer version is just gonna come out 12 to 18 months later.

    Miyamoto felt the same way with CD based games, now he uses it. You just are forced to keep up with the times if you want to stay in business.

    Thats probably why they don't want people to use the 3D lens since most gamers like to play for a long time. We are warned not to play for more than an hour without breaks but we ignore that already.

    You can bet Pokemon games will be on the 3DS at some point. Pokemon is a major franchise and money maker so why not? Seems like a dumb move on their part if they don't make good use of it. I also remember hearing that some developers received the kits for the DS successor so they are most likely working on something.

    Note that 5th Gen doesn't just mean the new games coming out at the end of 2010.

    Another rumor!

    This information comes from Nikkei, which is generally a very reliable source of information. Just to be sure, though, I’m marking these details as speculation…

    - Analog Stick
    - vibration pack
    - tilt sensor under decision
    - wireless connection speed up
    - battery life up
    - smaller than 4″ screen
    Source

    That's interesting.... an analog stick?

    When I say I don't want 3D in the main Pokemon games, I mean the cheap gimmicky pop-out-of-the-screen stuff that is enough to put an epileptic in the emergency room in five minutes flat. I'm fine with 3D in-game models, and I in fact want Game Freak to put more of those into the fifth generation games.

    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.

    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.

    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).

    I think the 3DS proves Nintendo can still be ahead of the competition in technology. It may be a bit weird to use on car journeys though.

    I've stuck with the Phat since my first Phat. My sister bought a DS Lite, and I got her Phat to replace my busted Phat. So yeah. I'm a Phat person and proud.

    Nintendo is about innovation - The GameBoy was an early handheld, the DS was a first to utilize touch technology, the Wii of course took advantage of motion control, so now a 3D video game on a handheld without the use of glasses is, quite simply, innovation, not gimmicks.

    I do agree with Dattebayo, though - just another company hopping on the 3d bandwagon.

    Well, I would assume that this one would also have a Double Screen feature.

    Wow. This seems like a cool new Nintendo handheld. Good thing it has backwards compatibility with the DS and DSi. I'll be sure to get it when the time comes. So, it is supposed to go on sale between Apr. 2010 and Mar. 2011?

    That would never happen as you'd have to pay for it. And nintendo would never want to charge people.

    I'm really disappointed with this news, it's bad enough 3D is starting to become the norm in Theaters and now there's a 3D Tv that's come out too, but a 3D Nintendo console? I can't enjoy any of it. Why? Because 3D literally makes me nauseous.

    My only hope is that Nintendo has figured out a new way of 3D that will not have severe side effects for people like myself. If they haven't, well then at least thank goodness the 5th gen is supposedly coming out on the DS so I can enjoy that because once they switch to the 3DS I will no longer be able to follow the pokemon franchise

    Darn it, I hate 3D if it takes over I will never be able to watch movies or play video games again... T_T

    I never have a problem with 3D, but I hope for the people who become nauseous, or have seizures, etc. that Nintendo will include an off Setting for this New console. Also, NO ANALOG STICK! I hate those things, after a few hours, my thumbs become tired, and after a few days of playing hours at a time, I am unable to play due to the muscles tearing. Also, I know it's not going to happen, but I wish they would include a button select system that operates by voice command, that way when I get a mosquito bite, I can still play. LOL :P

    This is no innovation. This technology is not new. It is a gimmick. In order for Nintendo to use this and remain cheap it wont be to it's full potential and will quickly be outpaced. They're doing it to get sales, that's all.

    It's not that kind of 3D.

    It's this kind:

    Sunshine remake seems even more likely with the announcement of the analog stick-Which I hope doesn't replace the dpad, but won't be too upset if it does (I use classic controllers analog stick for Super Mario World and it plays just as good).

    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.

    What I meant by App Store was like the app store but only with games. It seems possible, the App Store is making a ton of money, and Nintendo has copied things because they made money before (Miyamoto said online play was just a fad, though we got it on wii/ds). I mean, it is the only advantage the iTouch has over a normal iPod other than internet and youtube.

    Some people are believing in SSBDS again. Analog stick seems to slightly boost this rumor, and since Nintendo's added DLC to wifi since Brawl, that'd be a plus. But I still doubt it.

    So far all I can gather is that it’s in 3D and a bit fancier. They’ll need a better gimmick than that to get me to cough up the dough. I didn't even bother with the DSi. :V
