It's amazing how much you miss the 3D when you switch to a normal DS game.

I need to stop being a starving artist and get this thing immediately. If music equipment was not so expensive I might actually have had some cash saved over to grab one

I picked up the 3DS today and I was very surprised at how few people were actually buying them. I was expecting there to be massive line ups like there were for the Wii although with the 3DS I was able to get to a store 30 minutes before it opened and be second in line. The 3D effect is neat although I usually just turn it on for a few minutes at a time in an attempt to save battery life. It looks like friend codes are back though although I think that they might be universal this time (instead of game specific) although I can't confirm this since I don't have any 3DS games that use Wi-Fi at the moment. My friend code is 2148-8148-2848 in case anyone wants to add me as a friend.

I planning on picking one up, hopefully today, but I won't be getting any games. I figure that the packaged features will keep me busy for a little while, and frankly there wasn't any launch titles that really grabbed my attention.

Yeah, the code is universal.


I'm interested about the 3D/battery life thing. Unless I'm mistaken, wouldn't the amount of 3D effect you use have a consistant impact on the battery life except when completely disabled?

Little, what kills the screen is the processing power and the brightness.

We do have a small gamecube here after all.

I wonder if they added in support of patching through normal DS games to the 3DS network settings. :/

I want to play these games online too... but as it is now, I just can't have my router on WEP, it's just not secure enough, and in a few years, well, let's just say it won't get any better.

Might just have to try out the 3DS next time I go to GameStop, actually... I might wait to buy this one, however...

I stopped by Walmart, hoping that by some miracle they'd have a demo station, but no.
Weird though, as they had only really sold 3 or 4 of the consoles, afaik.

Got mine from breastbuy and they weren't really that swamped for it at all. This seems to be a rather lukewarm release. Also, you'll want to get games. The built in features are nice but a lot of stuff is still pending. There were a few things that reported requiring a future update. I haven't used the AR cards because it was dark by the time I got home, and the light in this room isn't bright enough for it to work.

I'm looking forward to it getting hacked and seeing what interesting homebrew comes around. I can see some neat 3D scene demo kind of things using the effect.

Also, I was worried about the effect not working for me because of my eyes but it works great but I need to turn it off to really usefully play it but it's good for cinematics and stuff.

Hello, Freud!

I'm currently saving up for one, but it's gonna be a few months before I can afford it. On the upside, more potential releases for me!

I still got one, despite anything I said.

From the 3D stuff I've tried, it is nifty. But I got an headache pretty fast.

But heh, waiting for homebrew to hit that thing, I suppose.

Since I don't have any 3DS games at the moment I've been using it to play a variety of original DS games, just seeing what they're like with the slider and how they look on the 3DS. The image quality is fairly disappointing for original DS games, I figured that even though the image was going to be bigger it would still look nice like is does on a DSi/XL although instead you get a blurry image and black bars on both sides of the top screen. Also, am I the only one who's worried about the black bars being burned into the screen after playing an original DS game for a long period of time, similar to what happens to some wide screen TVs? This is something that I haven't seen brought up at all anywhere on the internet...

Hold Start and Select while booting a DS game, Higsby.

Also, LCDs don't burn in.

Edit: Also, get in the car ride and look at the rotating icons on the home menu. It spins incredibly fast, but I can't make it do that by moving around my room or shaking it violently...

Edit2: Pull the stylus out and push it back in, it makes it spin.

I've tried this literally once, in an in-store kiosk (with Pilotwings Resort). The game looked fantastic, and if you set the 3D slider right the 3D made everything look even better. The 3D is very much a one-person thing, however. The angle of vision is quite small. (as everybody knew )
