This is my 3rd 3DS unit after my launch date black 3DS which I've recently sold to a friend and my pink and white 3DS XL. This pink 3DS has got to be my favorite colour design of all. I got this 3DS to get around the region locking that all 3DS users who enjoy JRPGs are plagued by. I won this off the play-asia auction and it was an extremely pleasant experience. The unit works great and has a great library of games for me to choose from. If you enjoy playing JRPGs, then you should definitely buy a Japanese unit to complement your US/ EU/ AUS unit.
I bought the Mysty Pink 3DS because one it's pink, and two because I want to play Japanese 3DS games and Nintendo decided to region lock the 3DS, which I think is so stupid. I love this thing. The 3D hurts my eyes, so I turn it off. I like how I can do that. Also, it comes with a 2 GB memory card, which you can, of course, upgrade.
It plays games really well and I would recommend it to anyone who wants a 3DS and have the ability to play Japanese games on it.
For those of you unaware, this console was previously only available on Konami's site and you could only purchase one when you won a spot through a raffle ticket draw which makes this limited edition special compared to the rest of the retail limited.
The console is also Region Locked to Japan which means all of the 3ds games you can play on this will have to be ones for the Japan region. No other regions unfortunately, so think very carefully before snatching this one up for yourself.
Got it as a christmas gift during 2012, can't say I have any complaints. Despite it being stock black in colour, the special snake skin design on the outer shell makes up for it. The console itself just screams beauty, looking very sleek and sexy.
The special limited edition pack comes with the usual gear, Japanese 3ds charger, charging dock, instruction manuals, a copy of Metal Gear Solid 3: Snake Eater for the 3ds and of course the Limited Edition Console itself. I got it second hand so it was missing the special MGS themed filed holders which was supposed to come in the set. The game included is also one of the few games to support the slide pad/circle pad pro that's sold seperately.
Also note that due to its snake skin pattern, the outer shell picks up less noticeable finger print smudges. I doubt this was intentional but I think we can all appreciate less finger residue on our precious consoles.
Overall, it's an amazing looking piece of hardware. I wouldn't think twice picking this one over another 3ds model or even a 3ds LL. Plus, it's a must have when you are a die hard MGS fan. So if you're fine with importing all your games and are content with your console and games being all in the Japanese language this pack is an awesome pick for you! Hope this helped ;)
I a big Nintendo fince since i have memory, and this console really blow me out when all that new and originally stuff that include.
The augmented reality is realy cool, the camera detection and the 3D pics is amazing, the 3D effect is great and of course all the great tittles for 3DS make the console a master piece that do you have tu need.
The only thing better than a 3DS is a 3DS XL xD ^^
I like my 3DS, but I liked my DS a lot more. Region-locking really sucks...
The produce wich i bought is good only the battery discharge early respect to other nintendo i nave.
Looks great feels great and it goes well with my video game collection.
fun extras, good game collection, easy controls, A+
Very fun to play with, although if you're new to the 3D, you may get a small headache for the first little while, and the region lock can get a little irritating. Overall, though, the fun that you get out of the 3DS far outweighs those problems.
I had a Black 3DS that I got before this color was released, when I learned about the system transfer and how I could keep my ambassador status I bought this one right away and it works perfectly.
The console is awesome, everything is high quality and its beautiful. The 3D doesn't hurt my eyes, but thats because I'm used to it now, it only hurts the first day, then the eyes adjust to it and its just second nature.
Amazing games, perfect design and is nintendo... what more I want
I am RPG lover...this console provide me to enjoy a lot of great RPG game..:D
It's a shame that the 3DS is region locked. I bought the NTSC-J system solely for playing Fire Emblem: Kakusei on it, I also own a PAL system. Very dissapointing that download play in games such as Mario Kart 7 doesn't work between different regions. It's like Nintendo treats their customers as cavemen who never leave their continent.
The build quality of the 3DS should be better. The d-pad is stiff, start/select buttons are hard to reach and less responsive then on previous Nintendo handhelds and the 3D slider is too loose. I also liked the stylus placement, matte colour and smoother form factor of the DSi more. All this issues seem to be adressed in the 3DS XL so I regret a bit that I didn't hold off with the purchase.
This is one of best games for 3DS!; I don't know why Monster Hunter series switching side from Sony PS to Nintendo....
If you have Nintendo 3DS and you like Action-Hunting games, then you must have this game, especially for MonHun fans. :D
I'll admit, I was put off of the 3DS system when it first came out, and now that it's slightly more affordable with a better array of games I decided to go for it.
Play-Asia is always my go-to place for importing games and game systems, it's also where I got my mint green PSP 2000.
The color is beautiful white, and would probably not show scratches.
The hinge is sturdier than the DSi and the buttons are much easier to press, and have a less chance of getting stuck like I had with the DSi.
ahkina.tumblr.com for a full review later!
Its a JPN 3DS thats bundled with MHTri G. I would have not purchased this if Tri G wasn't included or if MHTri G was localised.
Buy only if you feel your a DIE hard MH fan and have other games with no chance of localization in sight.
The color I got is red, glossy, and shiny! Its a MUST HAVE if your a monster hunter fan (:
And it was totally worth it for me! :)
I already own a European 3DS, but I really wanted to play the Game Kingdom Hearts before its Western Release and I am so happy that I spent my money for this!
This System can also read Nintendo DS (
The ice white look is very sexy! ;) I thought i would have a lot of trouble with it you know by cleaning it because it's white. but i haven't had any trouble with it since i got it! play asia rules! :D
this is a must have for those that will play games from Japan
I, as I enjoy mine.
this console is incredible.
thanks play asia are the best
it has 3 different types of aqua which makes it look really pretty,and the system is amazing itself too.
This 3DS version is a MUST for color and if you want also enjoy Japan gamesn version.
I already own a European 3DS.
MY COMPLIMENTS for Play Asia Services!
Very Good communication, quick delivery, perfect item!
This is the best console so far! I love the 3DS effect although it's restricted to only looking it straight but soon will get use to it.
This is my first 3DS system and I love it. Now to get some yen cards so I can buy games from the eshop!
A very good console and exceeded my expectation
Works great for games, and it's also really handy for browsing the internet. The initial connection speed is much faster than my computer's, and although the browser is somewhat slow and gives fairly frequent error messages, it's not so much that it's more than a mild annoyance. I like the notepad and sound alteration functions, too.
To me, this Nintendo 3DS is the best handheld game console. It has many exciting games to be played. I bought it from play-asia.com. They shipped it fast in good condition.
This is my second 3DS, in addition to my US 3DS, so no surprises. Shipped in perfect conditon, with Monster Hunter 3G (Tri-G) the red is a new color for me, and is very nice. Recommended.
If you get a neat and tidy 3DS, take this!
Finally, if you have friends, use 3DS. It will help you to develop friendship.
I am a huge Monster Hunter fan and waited and waited for CAPCOM to announce a local versions for the US. That announcement never came. Soon as I saw this decent priced bundle, I had to have it. Although the 3DS screen is very, very tiny, it's a great little handheld. I would 100% recommend this to any Monster Hunter! MH3G is the best Monster Hunter to date, I just wish the screen was bigger.
KH Fan Club not wait for buy the game.
I love 3ds because i remember nitendo have bring a lot of funs for me when i was a little boy, the first game system i bought is the GBA. i also have buy the nds after it came out. that one is japanese version of the 3ds, i love it also and i choose the red one.
BEST IMPORT SYSTEM HANDS DOWN..... FAVORITE SYSTEM GOOD GAMES AND GOOD COLOR...
If you are familiar and love the DS then you'll love the 3DS. The 3DS comes with lots of pre-loaded content and even more free apps and demos in the Nintendo eshop. The Japanese 3DS offers 3D TV and lots of more demos as oppose to the American 3DS. This 3DS is a must have for importers since the 3DS is region locked but what the Japanese 3DS offers eases the pain from region locking. Overall, it's a good system with great potential.
Lovely color and great console with many features, especially 3d screen. Cannot miss it
If you are learning Japanese this can be a great study tool. Increase your vocabulary by playing the street pass mii plaza. Learn how to say your hobby is getting fit, or you like dogs. :) And who doesn't need to learn how to say they escaped from a big boss in a game?
In one sentence, I love this handheld. It is advanced yet simple. Has all the capabilities that you would like in a handheld. At the beginning, there weren't much games on it, but games begin to follow as time passes. Right now, there are so many hits and famous names such as Resident Evil and Zelda.
The built of the console is not great. The sound quality is good and now it supports the virtual surround system. The graphics are good comparable to that of the gamecube.
Overall , good gaming experience.
Got this as a gift for my girlfriend and she loved it
I'm loving the 3DS so far. I still have so much to do even without a game! Mainly bought it for Kingdom Hearts 3D: Dream Drop Distance, but I'm definitely going to have a lot of fun with other games as well!
I bought this for kingdom hearts 3d.... and I can't wait to play it.....I have been playing zelda ocarina of time with and besides getting use to the 3d during battles I have enjoyed the system very much.
Sadly that its being Region Lock, but still a great console to have
Bought it for Project Mirai, can't wait!!!!
Great limited edition, a must get item if you love Gundam and a Gundam collector. Great 3ds effect for the game and money well spent. This was worth my money.
Absolutely loving the 3ds. It's got some great games for it already, even if it's pretty new. Happy with my purchase from Playasia.
This system is packed with features, and innovation. The augmented reality games are near impossible to describe to someone, you just have to see it in action. It can take 3d pictures, and with a software update it can also take 3d movies. I could go on ad nauseum about the goodies Nintendo has packed into this machine.
That said, the system does have some drawbacks.
The construction of the system feels cheap. The hinge on the system can sometimes allow the top screen to slam into the bottom screen, resulting in 2 vertical scratches on the 3d display. Invest in a protection filter.
The internet browser on this machine is quite frankly, broken. Until it is fixed I just cannot give this system 5 stars, however incredible and cutting edge it may be.
HTML5 and Flash simply do not work on it. Nintendo does not want their customers watching video content for free and playing Flash based games. What this means is that about 90% of the websites you like to visit just won't work on this machine.
If you're like me and like to travel light, this is a serious drawback. I don't like carrying around multiple expensive electronic devices, and Nintendo's decision to deliberately cripple their internet browser has ensured that my 3DS stays at home comfortably sitting on its charging dock.
I recently emailed Nintendo of America to level criticisms at them for this decision (their competitor, Sony, at least has a browser that works) and they basically told me to go pound sand. They have no intentions of making the 3DS internet browser work with modern websites.
Dang I love this, thought I dont own any Japanese 3DS games, it can play your DS games, and your Japanese DSi enhancement games I do plan on getting KH3D thats one of the main reasons I got this. Also the menu isnt hard just if you have the US version one you can Just follow that and look at the Japanese and US version one at the same time to get the menu memorized :3
Despite being region locked, it's still easy to get used to reading the 3DS home menu in Japanese. liked the augmented reality games and cards, but the cards didn't exactly "move", only had a series of poses.
Bought it from Indonesia with the courier shipping. Arrived in only 3 days, working great.
as monster hunter came to it i liked it even more
like it feel good
Overall best present to give to your gammer boyfriend AND is a very nice and stylish color. I've gotten it in perfect timing as well
SUPER FAST SHIPPING, AND NICE CUSTOMER SERVICE. the item is packed well and look amazing.
Like it, but wish that it is not region locked
overall is good, nice 3d effect and so on, but the battery life is bit low when playing games that requires 3d.
If you don't already know, the 3DS is region-locked. This means that a japanese 3DS will only play japanese games. That said, the 3DS in general already has a decent library of games, with more coming in the near future. The actual 3D effect of the system is nice, but I keep it off to save battery. In other words, it's purely eye candy. Most likely, if you're already looking at this, you probably have an idea of what kinda games you want. I personally recommend it to anyone who likes VIDEO GAMES.
The system is powerful and it is pretty amazing at what it can do, but I am surprised at how short the battery life is. I always liked how Nintendo battery life was pretty great.
can it ship to india
Perfect item, very fast delivery!
at first I was not a big fan of the 3ds, but with the release of new games such as Monster Hunter tri 3G 3ds and upcoming titles that seem to push this handheld system to the limits. and with the release of newer titles its almost guaranteed this is something you want to have in you back pocket at all times
updating the systems itself, you can do tons of stuff
I love the StreetPass when traveling.
Great System! I only got one game so far that all that has come in... I have ordered three... the one I am playing now is one piece... It's supper koo! I wish I had just wated for the Japanese system all along an not bought my U.S. model. I'm happy though that I have both systems now. I connect everyday and play the mii games with my U.S. Mii and My Japanese Mii so it work out having two systems lol.
Wow the 3ds is simply amazing I'm glad I sold my US 3ds to buy the white ice 3ds with monster hunter 3G which I perfer the Japanese version now I can get great games from Japan. Thanks again play-aisa for the great severices. If anyone's looking to buy 3ds go with a Japanese 3ds better games (⌒▽⌒)
The nintendo three Ds is a great game system with many fun games. The unit offers additional features like music and online add ons that make it a versatile and useful gaming unit.
i was really amazed by the 3d effect, but its a real battery juice drainer.. But to play mh tri on a handheld, its a sold. Thanks play-asia!
Nintendo's latest portable device, is acool gadget, where you can apreciate 3D effects, and have fun playing with it.
I think that foar a portable device region lock is no good, but I'm sure future tittles with make for what it now lacks.
I never expect that this 3D effect was amazing.
It was astonishing, amazing, and fascinating
YOU WILL NEVER KNOW before you play it.
I feel rather mixed about 3DS. The region lock is a real killer for a handheld console it's predecessor had not such non-sense. I don't think I can see the 3D effect right (I do not "feel it") even with full 3D effects, the buttons feel rather small and the slide pad doesn't have the kind of grip I have with say, PSP's analog stick.
On the other side of the coin it's got games I want to play and that's Monster Hunter. The games seem to look great in general, the wider screen is enjoyable and the Flare Red color really looks stylish. It's got plenty of random stuff, but I think I'll be just satisfied with the games the console's getting.
What's even better is that I can buy a local DSi charger and it will work with the Japanese 3DS just fine, saving me tons of money from power converters.
Maybe with time I'll get used to the size of the buttons among other flaws I am feeling with the console right now. I'd recommend getting the system, but choose the region-specific console wisely because otherwise you probably won't get much out of the console, even with the couple of funny Mii features and rather scant e-shop.
Playasia Hello friends, I enjoyed the Nintendo 3DS, it is very beautiful and very entertaining and educational, even if you have not bought any games you have fun with it, and you give perfectly within programmed, it came intact and meet you in really well with us here at beasil, thanks you guys are playasia 10 .... Thanks and see you next purchase .....
All i can say is, WOW. The build of this device just makes you want to lick it! Really?! It fits awesomely in your hand and the interface, the 3d apps, the eShop, the whole ecosystem and experience is sooo much better than my Lite or what I've seen of the DSi. If you are not buying one of these soon, you are missing out!
Even though the system itself is definately attractive and all but like everyone else I had in mind that it still lacks the number of game titles to play quite since its release. So I was hesitating to get one but then 3ds Pink has totally changed my mind. I'm so glad that I waited for pink to come out, i knew nintendo would release it at some stage but not this soon..
Well still in need of lots of brand new games but just a couple of months to go for those epic titles to play on my 3ds!
It's simply terrific, i couldn't be happier with it.
I gotta admit, I was pretty surprised by how entertaining this thing was. I only bought it to prepare for Monster Hunter 3G. Before that, I had no interest in owning one. But I've been having a blast with it since I got it.
Although it does have some flaws such as the battery life and region locking, it's still a pretty mean machine. And judging by the recent TGS 11 announcements, there are some good things coming now.
It's worth checking out or dusting off. ;D
It is great, I bought for the game Monster Hunter Tri 3G, I love the system so so much, thanks a lot.
The system is really not all that great. There are very few American games that are worth playing, and the ones that are worth playing are generally games that are over a decade old.
If you feel like you must get a Nintendo 3DS, buy a Japanese one. Japan already has plenty of good games for the system and there are more great games on the way such as Monster Hunter and Hatsune Miku.
Red color is so intense!
Got it for 3D. The effect works well, but may give some people headaches. Got it before price drop so I now have free virtual console games (not in 3D).
Playing Zelda OoT now, utilizes 3DS functions well, for eg accelerometer/gyro to aim your slingshot.
3D camera works well too.
Needs more games, wish the games would be cheaper though.
A great console, but there isn't a great selection of games for it yet, and the 3D effect takes some time to get used to.
Not to be a harbinger of bad news but the 3DS can give headaches and sickness.
This doesn't happen for everyone, but it did for me. I thought feeling a bit ill was due to my eyes not being used to it. But after having it for several months it didn't change, even if I had a break.
Conclusion: If the 3D is a big reason you want it, try it out for an hour first. This will give you a good indication on how it affects you.
The handheld is a very good system and the graphics look sharper in 2D, but if you can't play without 3D then just try it out.
I was originally skeptical on how this would look, much to my delight it looks amazing. It is otherwise the same as the Aqua Blue and Cosmo Black.
Generally not much to say that hasn't already been said, but the Flare Red feels more comfortable to hold and feels like it was built sturdier(buttons, sliders, analog etc). Not too hard to navigate through the japanese menus.
The 3DS is a great handheld to own but the library of games is a little small. The only true reason to buy one right now is Legend Of Zelda: Ocarina of Time but a Mario games is due at the end of the years so maybe wait until then.
I'm loving the 3DS. The 3D effect is very nice. I find it a little hard to focus on it when it's turned on to full though so I also love how you can adjust the intensity of the 3D, or turn it off completely if you like.
The Aqua Blue colour is also very nice.
I'm looking forward to seeing some new games come out for it because so far the only game I've bought is Zelda: OoT.
What can I say? I purchased this with the smoothest transaction ever, got it delivered safely and quickly, and everything was boxed in a professional mannor.
The 3DS itself is a great console. All the features are great.
Since I get eyestrain from the 3D mode, I play all my games in 2D. The resolution is actually higher playing in 2D (well, for Zelda it is), so you win either way.
If you're considering buying a 3DS from play-asia, I recommend it!
i wanted to wait it out for a nicer colour but decided to splurge on one instead. not regretting it one bit, the 3DS is well built and look great!! the 3D effect really immerses you into the games. GET ONE!!
Still too early to get one as there's not much games...
I haven't bought any games for it yet, but it has a couple games built in, which is nice, since the games I want aren't released yet.
The 3d effect is impressive.
The Blue version is a really pretty colour, and looks much better in person, than on a monitor.
i love it so far even though i dont got any 3ds games for it but it does have afew mini game which u can enjoy if u dont got a 3ds game one the best features are the AR cards the mp3 players and the ability to taje 3D photos this is a must to buy
the 3D graphics is very nice, it also can play US NDS game, I had try the pokemon black in it and it was work. this is a awesome system to have, and the taking picture in 3D is fun~~~~
Cool 3DS, but short in games~
fantastic console.waiting for tales to come out now.
First Nintendo that I bought after GBA, try it then will like it.
It was fantastic. Everything that I was expecting about it, was supered. I love it.
Really Amazing!!! the best portable of the great N, the 3d effect is incredible!!...... thank you play-asia!!! I´m happy : )
First naked 3d effect in the game conosle, it brings people good experience with game play, very impressive!! I like it!
This new console is an excellent product and I sure that its future will be great!
This piece on handheld console it's just totally MAGIC! I mean, I have never seen something like this before. The graphics it's too real to say it with words! You just gotta experience it yourself!
Remember, with the 3DS; it's not just DIVERSION, it's IMMERSION!
First off, the 3D effect is as spectacular as people say it is. It works great and looks fantastic. However, I have noticed some amount of ghosting, which is generally visible if you look for it unless you are at _exactly_ the right angle (both horizontally _and_ vertically); in some cases I can't completely rid myself of the ghosting effect - for instance, the magnifying glass in Professor Layton and the Mask of Miracles (apparently not available in the US?) always has at least a very slight double when it's resting in the background, even at the best of angles. As I say, though, if the angle is good, you won't notice it unless you're pretty much straining to find it. And it doesn't detract from how great the 3D is.
Also, contrary to some reviews, there actually is more than one angle from which you can view the 3D effect; one angle on each side. If you move away from a centered position, the 3D effect becomes double-vision, and then moves back to 3D as you continue to move away. After moving further from that, there are no more 3D positions. However, the non-center 3D-capable viewing positions aren't really useful (they're just a side-effect of how the parallax barrier technology works), as onlookers would have to keep that position even when you shift the 3DS slightly or something, which isn't practically possible. And the 3D effect is slightly distorted from those viewing positions, since the left/right images were really meant to be combined in an immediately-forward position.
You also need to have it positioned at just the right vertical angle in order to get the brightness/contrast right.
Headaches and dizziness are frequently-reported problems. Just reduce the 3D effect, duh. That's why Nintendo had the foresight to make it so easily-adjustable. Personally, I don't seem to be as sensitive to such things as some are, and view most things at 100% "3D volume". When I do find my eyes "working" to look at distant parts, or feel dizzy, I find it's usually because I'm holding the 3DS closer to my eyes than the recommended distance; just hold it back at the recommended ~1 ft distance, and it's usually much easier to handle. And if not, just adjust the 3D volume to around 50%. One Ars Technica reviewer said he prefers 30%. I don't like that as much, but the 3D effect is still very strong even at that low level.
Of course, if you're in a situation where the 3DS is going to be moving around a lot relative to your vision, you're going to end up wanting to turn the 3D effect off altogether. Have you ever played a game that got intense enough that you find yourself actually moving the whole controller as you press the directional button, in a subconscious attempt to make your character jump out of the way of something? Well, do that with the 3DS, and you'll quickly be seeing double again until you reorient yourself (I had this happen once or twice on Splinter Cell 3D). For such games, you may find it handy to turn off 3D during particularly intense parts.
Is the battery life as bad as they say it is? ...Yes, yes it is. For me this actually isn't much of a problem, I mostly play it at home, or for less than an hour each way on my work commute by train. For road trips, I'm sure a cigarette-lighter adapter will serve. But it will definitely be a factor for some people, and yes, it's really abysmal. Certainly, forgetting to charge it each and every day that you use it, will certainly be painful the next day when you discover it doesn't last long enough to enjoy.
As some others have said, the 3D camera is fun, but not useful. They are crappy cameras, just good enough to show off the tech, or play "augmented reality" games (like the ones that ship inside the device), but not good for taking actual photos with that you'll want to show. For that, you might want to have a look at the Fujifilm FinePix Real 3D W3 Digital Camera with 3.5-Inch LCD; I've ordered one already, but it hasn't arrived yet. Reviews on Amazon seem pretty positive, though.
I'm loving my 3DS, though I'm still waiting for the really good games to come out, or at least the Nintendo Shop at the end of May, when I'll be able to download my favorite GameboyColor Zelda games, and (I hope) various interesting demos, videos, and/or mini games.
A couple of minor problems that I haven't seen mentioned often elsewhere: the power button is too easy to access. Pressing it (say, when you meant to press Start) quits your game. You can cancel the "power off" action, but doing so only brings you to the home menu (without your in-progress game in the background), so it's effectively an instant-kill switch for games. Not cool. I'm hoping a future firmware update might alleviate this; it brings up a menu, so it has got to be software-based.
The other is that the 3DS could really benefit from separated user profiles. The combination of the 3DS not offering profiles, and the games themselves often allowing for only a single save slot (I _hate_ when they do that), makes it harder to hand it to a friend to let them try things out for themselves.
This piece of 3D gadget is amazing. Because it really does give you 3D graphic without the need for glasses. But, because I've been playing with DSi XL for about a year and got used to it's large screen, this 3DS's screen feels small.
Apart from the screen, everything seem great.
The 3DS is smaller than even my DSL, which is amazing, since the 3DS is so much more powerful and has a lot more features.
The graphics are a lot better, and the 3D part is definitely interesting. I have yet to play a 3D game, but so far I've had fun playing around with the preloaded games.
The 3D camera is also very nice. It was definitely beyond my expectation. I thought it was gimmicky, and maybe it is, but I kind of like it =)
The region lock thing really blows, because I play games from multi-regions. But it really shouldn't affect those who play games from one region.
First impression was WOW!!!
Then second thought after playing the pre-loaded games was meh...
Then played Pokemon Black in Japanese and I must say the games are what make the system great. With only a few 3DS games out, its still early to rate the system, but overall I am satisfied with the system. I wish it had a larger viewing angle because the 3D really strains my eyes.
The Nintendo 3DS is a great system.
Many options, 3D, 3D Camera, new games, and many more.
For me it is the best handeld since the original GB, what is great is that GB games will be available on it :D
The 3D effect is really stunning, you feel also the quality of the manufacturing courtesy of Nintendo.
I'm so happy with it !
Definitely get your hands on a 3DS. The 3D visuals are really great, and the console's built in features are enough to entertain you for hours (especially 顔シューティング and ARゲームズ). I was slightly disappointed that the console wasn't released with the eShoppe or the internet browser, but Nintendo has stated that these will be a part of an update in May
It's like a mirakle, being able to see 3D without 3D glasses, and for me who use glasses in my everyday life is this very comfortable. Fun to play with the AR-Cards, and other inbuilt games. Highly recommended.
The only bad thing about it is that it has region block.
I ordered the Nintendo3DS back when it was first posted and didn't have a price yet. After it was posted, I still ordered it at the high price of $492! The Nintendo3DS is just something you can't explain or show, you just have to play it for yourself to see!
Although there is not a whole lot you can do with the 3DS yet, a lot of cool features and games have been announced. Setting up the 3DS and navigating it was pretty easy. The first thing I did was use the AR cards. They were pretty fun watching the system distort the world and shoot stuff. The face shooters game was really cool, didn't like the idea of shooting faces, but overall, cool. You move around and aim the 3DS everywhere turning and such to shoot faces. It is really cool to play this game in the dark! Nintendo finally added MP3 support for the music player which was nice. I wish it played OGG format as well. It was nice to know you DO NOT need the charge cradle or anything to charge it. I just plug it into my DSi charger.
Some announced features were the 3DS shop and DSiWare channels on here which is supposed to be here by May 2011 where you can download GB / GBC games (some in 3D) and videochatting. I hope they bring the Virtual Boy library to the 3DS as well. I was curious if this system was really regionlocked, well, I put in Pokemon Black & White versions from North America, they came up and played just fine. It may be different for 3DS games. My first 3DS game was Super Monkey Ball 3D which was definitely one of the best launch titles I have seen. It was short, simple, fun, great music, and everyone wants to try it.
Nintendo3DS is definitely the future of gaming and I recommend everyone gets one!
It allows you to play American DS games. Like the Region Lock on the standard DS games between foreign systems... you CAN still play all your games. When the AR is released in the US for the 3DS it will allow a bypass so think twice before buying 2 DS'
I was reluctant at first to buy the nintendo 3ds but the only thing I can say is that the 3D is really something, the system feels light and not cheap at all, great response with the controls and its a well played for nintendo new handheld. It doesnt matter where you buy it, but if you were doubting to buy the system DON'T it's worth it.
Feels better than the DS lite. I don't quite like the gloss on the unit - it's everywhere. The 3D is pretty cool, though. If you haven't already, get games for it. The included content will keep you entertained for a little - being able to run the Internet browser in the future is going to be awesome.
More cheaper more cheaper!!
Im interested in 340 something...
Would it be that cheap?
The 3DS is was the best thing to happen since the Nintendo Wii. The graphics are amazing in both 2D and 3D. When i turn up the 3D volume its like there's another room(when I'm at the right distance of course) ; the 3DS is truly impeccable...
Knowing as regards the regional lock is a must-buy for every buyer of Japanese games. If the price is offensive but it's worth compared to other Nintendo portable design seem unrelated to the company. It is very beautiful. The whole industry will move in 2011 to 3DS
Its expensive but its worth it, sweet 3DS.... :3, 3D is really nice, great handheld unit ever.... :3
