The Nintendo 3DS is based on a custom Pica200 graphics processor from a Japanese start-up Digital Media Professionals (DMP). It has two screens; the top screen is a 3.53-inch 5:3 3D screen with a resolution of 800x240 pixels (400x240 pixels per eye, WQVGA) that is able to produce a stereoscopic three-dimensional effect without 3D glasses, while the bottom screen is a 3.02-inch 4:3 non-3D touch panel with a resolution of 320x240 pixels (QVGA). The 3DS weighs approximately 8 oz. and, when closed, is 5.3 inches wide, 2.9 inches long, and 0.8 inches tall.

The system features several additions to the design of the original DS, including a slider on the side of the device that adjusts the intensity of the 3D effect, a round nub analog input called the "Slide Pad", an accelerometer, and a gyroscope. In addition, there is an infra-red communicator port situated on the top of the unit.

The 3DS has two cameras on the outside of the device, capable of taking 3D photos and capturing 3D video, as well as a camera positioned above the top screen that faces the player; both cameras have a resolution of 640x480 pixels (0.3 Megapixel). The system also has 3D movie playback capability.

Compatible with both Nintendo DS and DSi games, and a new generation of 3DS games.

This is a great console
I have had this system since Sep. 2011. I love every minute I play on it. It is a good size. It does not take up much space when carrying it. The games, first party and third party, are great. I barely used the 3D because it is to harsh on my eyes and it never looked good to me. I bought a Japanese model because I wanted to play and receive games and content that are not offered from Nintendo of America. One of the best choices I made.

Great handheld
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.

Looks good
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
