“Easy, peasy, more than 3D.”

It has been a long time coming but the successor to the DS has finally arrived. When the DS first appeared on the scene it was the first handheld capable of rendering 3D graphics, something that was totally overlooked by the innovative dual screen approach, touch screen controls and a great games...

“Nintendo DSi version 1.5”

published 06/09/2011

Augmented reality is fun!

3D is hit or miss, basically a DS with 3D

What Nintendo have done is take the original DS, made some changes and add the number ‘3’ in front of it to make the Nintendo 3DS. I hate Nintendo for doing this because they always get away with it. You know that it is going to be pretty much the same deal as before, no revolution in anyway, but...

“Bright and Shiny”

published 08/06/2011

design, 3D, features

battery life, lack of games at the moment

Many people is mistook the 3DS for just another console in the DS series, much like the DSi which was just the same console with a few extra features. However, this is wrong! The 3DS is actually a completely new console, the only similarity being the touch screen design and of course the shared...

“A New Dimension”

published 27/03/2011

Forefront of technology

Little use buying now

Nintendo 3DS: Cosmos Black I’m sick. I originally pre-ordered my Nintendo 3DS on the basis that a possible shortage would mean I would be able to sell it on for more than face value, similar to what I did over 5 years back with my Xbox 360 (and considering what happened in Japan, this could...

Revolutionary

Not much variety in game titles

I bought the 3DS back in March only a day or two after it has been released. I paid £279.99 from HMV for the console itself, two games and a 'starter pack' which consisted of a hardcase, extra stylus' and screen protection equipment. I think that the launch price for the console was steep. This...

the novelty of 3d wears off quickly!

I am a fan of the Nintendo DS and have owned just about all of them - upgrading everytime a new one comes out (except for the DSi XL, which I didnt see the point of). I used to spend alot of time on trains or buses so a DS was perfect for passing the time. When I first heard about the 3DS i was a...

All the favourites in 3D!

0.3 megapixel camera

I wasn't sure about the Nintendo 3DS to start with. The TV advertisements didn't really give much away in terms of how it worked or what it looked like, as I guess it's pretty much impossible to portray 3D on a 2D screen. It was enough to get me interested though. I went down to one of the major...

I was unsure of the 3DS initially. I was not a fan of the DSi for the sheer lack of features and being more of a money scam for Nintendo, I was very suspicious of the 3DS being similarly, well, similar. I was certainly not in line the day it came out, but months later I decided to check it out at...

Where to begin. 3d for me was always something I thought was a pretty cool idea but a very novel one all the same. I had seen many 3D movies in theaters and am also lucky enough to have 3D capability at home in the form of the PS3. However, as exciting as it is playing your favorite titles in...

This is a great game console for you Nintendo lovers out there. At first i really didn't think that it was 3D at all! As soon as i bought my game Luigi's Mansion Dark moon, it was totally worth paying for. This counsel is hand held, so you can take it everywhere you go. A cool feature it does...

3D is amazing, lots of great features

expensive and the games are expensive

When i first heard about the Nintendo 3DS, i didn't really think much of it, i thought it was just another gimmick to make money. I had the original Nintendo DS and never uprgraded to any of the newer systems such as the DSi/DSLite, i was just totally satisfied with my good old plain and simple...

At first glance, it seemed to me the 3DS would be a fad that would die out quickly. 3D on a small screen, quite literally, is nothing compared to 3D on a big screen. However, I am a nintendo fan, and so I was generally swayed by the idea of a new nintendo console. So, I went out and bought it on...

Nintendo 3DS Overall this is a new gaming experience which you either think; "Wow thats so cool, it actually is in 3D!" or "The image just goes back in the screen a bit. Rubbish!". Now I am personally amazed with it exspecially playing the remake of Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time. As, I think...

“Improved DSi with 3D”

published 03/04/2011

2GB SD Card Included, 3D handheld

Limited launch features (internet/SD Card)

The 3DS is simler to the DSi but with improvements and of course, 3D capability, the hardware in the 3DS includes more RAM and no longer uses Nintendos own graphics chip, but none of this is needed to know by the average user of the 3DS. The 3DS comes with a 2GB SD Card, which should be more than...
