The 3ds has pros and cons

Advantages3d, Two cameras, backwords compatible with ds and dsi games, and can have expanded memory with sd

DisadvantagesNo skype or youtube, slightly bulky.

"...a 3d video player called nintendo video which commonly features videos of music videos and short films or short animations, It plays four videos that change every few days.The 3ds can upload pictures to facebook with it's internet browser. However it is still behind when compared to the psvita. I would recommend buying it to play games, not if you want internet features such as skype or youtube. It has pin locked parent controls. Also the 3ds does ..." Read review

Is a Nintendo 3DS worth it? Or should you stay with your DSi?

AdvantagesEasy to carry, user friendly interface, a very social gaming platform, great online play

DisadvantagesCan hurt wrists from holding after a while, some may find the controls are strange

"I received a Nintendo 3DS about a year after they had come out onto the market. I was very excited about it at the time. At first it seemed perfect and great, but eventually I began to see the flaws. Though they are minor for me, they may be major for someone else, and that's something you should keep in mind before you buy. First off, not everybody can see the 3D feature on the Nintendo 3DS. Some games incorporate the 3D excellently and make great ..." Read review

Good console, but can strain eyes!

Advantagesgood value, good quality, 3d pictures, two cameras, listen to music, make mii's

Disadvantagesneeds more variety of games, strain eyes

"this is a good console, i got it the day it came out for my birthday present and bought ridge racer 3d with it. I played it with 3d on and after 30 mins my eyes realy started to strain, it notes this on the user manual. Best thing to do is play with 3d for a little bit of time then switch the 3d off. It needs more variety of games. You can also surf the web when the software has updated and also you can take and view pictures. You can make mii's and ..." Read review

3DS is Nintendo's best handheld yet!

Advantages3DS has some great games out, with lots to offer in the near future. Can play nearly all DS games.

DisadvantagesSome people may not be able to fully appreciate the 3D effect due to eye conditions

"...the first game to complete Nintendo puzzles, and in the second you use the Miis you collected to defeat the enemy ghosts which give you rewards such as hats for your Mii) *Built in internet explorer Overall I would highly recommend the 3DS to anyone who is a fan of games, either casual or hardcore. After a slow start earlier on in the year the 3DS software is really picking up and now there are games to cater to any age, gender and skill level with ..." Read review

Nintendo 3ds worth the upgrade? Review with images

AdvantagesGreat for kids. Graphics look great

Disadvantages3d hurts eyes after some time

"While playing with the 3ds, I was amazed at the quality of the product. It feels sturdy in the hand and it was a change from the previous ds lineup. The 3d for this product was a bit annoying at time. It seems cool to have the feature but it hurts your eyes at times and I feel that it shouldn't be turned on the entire time. In my opinion, this product is great just don't expect the 3d to be the "best." I would recommend this product to anyone who ..." Read review

Amazing Handheld Review with images

AdvantageseShop, 3D effect, Analog, Motion controls, wi-fi

DisadvantagesSlow Internet, No flash on the internet

"...It's backwards compatible with Nintendo DS and Nintendo DSi games, except the select games that use the Gameboy Advance slot such as Guitar Hero: On Tour. The graphics compete with Microsoft's Xbox 360! They're crisp, bright, and beautiful. With the 3D effect on, it's an awesome experience. Not to mention the eShop where you can buy virtual console games as well as apps and downloadable games made for the 3DS and the DSi! ..." Read review

A good handheld, but phones will kill it

Advantages3D is good if you get the right setting, some aspects are quite fun (e.g. augmented reality)

Disadvantagesgames are not fantastic but would be good for kids

"Before the 3DS was launched, there was massive hype for the first console that has 3D that doesnt require glasses. Being a tech geek, i had to get one for myself! The first thing that struck me was hearing all of the news about people feeling sick with the 3D. Firstly, the console has a 3D slider to adjust the settings to suit you, as everyone will perceive the 3D differently. Secondly, when you start the 3DS for the first time, it takes you through ..."

Nintendo 3Ds. Is it worth the money?

Advantages3D is cool, Menu and button layout is easy to use,

DisadvantagesBattery life, distorts original ds games, game selection

"...for months awaiting it's release. Nintendo had originally announced an amazing line-up of games to be released for the system including a remake of Zelda Ocarina of Time. I rushed to the store and purchased a unit as soon as I could. At first I was thrilled! The 3D function was very new and exciting and you did not need any sort of glasses for the effect. I had a bunch of fun creating my "Mii" character and navigating the incredibly easy to use menus. ..." Read review

Fantastic, innovative idea, somewhat short on satisfaction.

Advantagesnew technology, visually satisfying, easy to use, online is awesome, old 64 games are back

Disadvantagescan hurt your eyes a little, low battery life

"When I first heard of the 3ds I was exstatic. I was so excited to see gamin move into the next generation. As far as visual expectations the 3ds is perfect. It is sometimes hard to keep it at the perfect distance from you face but it looks so great when it is. This gives gameplay a whole new feel and you really feel into the games. In my opinion the 3ds is a great idea and I highly recommend giving it a try. I think however that it is simply a start ..." Read review

3D Gaming

AdvantagesReally good

DisadvantagesExpensive but worth the money

"The Nintendo 3DS is a portable game console produced by Nintendo, with the amazing ability of bein able to display "3D effects without the need for any special glasses". I got my Nintendo 3DS from Amazon for a reasonable £184.99. I chose the black one as it's a classy colour, but there are other colours available - blue, red, purple, orange and gold. My boyfriend has the green which he gave to me too which is rather childish. The 3DS is a great ..." Read review

Nintendo 3DS

AdvantagesEasy to Handle learning and useful

DisadvantagesNothing

"I love the 3DS, It brings gaming to life and really encourages kids to become more self involved in things. In my opinion its a great console and should be respected more as a console and as a tool. From my point of view i think that the price could be lower as it would be more appealing but still its great :) also i think that for adults it can be appealing to because its just not for kids its for the whole community as a whole. i love the design ..."

Nintendo 3DS is a fun handheld game that is hard to put down.

AdvantagesBattery stays charged, Camera takes good pictures.

DisadvantagesQuality can be a bit "iffy" on some games

"...that have also purchased a Nintendo 3DS, and I have heard nothing but positive comments about it. My boyfriend's younger sisters and brothers each have one. They love to exchange games and chat with each other on it. It is definitely great for long trips, friends houses, and even at home when you have nothing to do. I highly recommend this product for anyone who has even considered getting this. It is an absolutely GREAT game! :) ..." Read review
