That's a step in the right direction, I guess. Why no nickname system? Is Nintendo really that worried about nicknames not being kid-friendly?

God damn, that Europe conference is boring as fuck. Lame jokes, terrible guest interaction... I can't watch it any more.

So, GameBoy and GameBoy Color games are (still and again) confirmed. Super Mario Land. Yaaaaaaay. If that's the only Mario title on launch, I'm going to be disappointed. That's how we'll get a Zelda game as well, I bet.

I'm pretty sure we'll see Super Mario Land, Link's Awakening and Tetris on launch. Hope they get Metroid II out there soon.

Oh, for those that want to try one out, Nintendo is shipping 5000 demo units. There are only like a million stores in the US alone that will be selling them, but you got a chance of being near one, right?

Let's not forget this great bit of news:

-Region locking (because Nintendo has been SO great about bringing over games this generation, right? ... right... ?)

-2.5-3.5 hour battery life

-3+ hours for a full charge

-No dual analogue

Fuck you, Nintendo. $250? For this shit? You're becoming overconfident again. Time for a big punch in the financial nose.

The DSi had partial region-lock.

The battery life thing is still up in the air, as we haven't gotten any details on it, like on what settings. Nintendo said the DSi would be only 4 or so hours, and then it turned out that was with maximum screen brightness and Wi-Fi constantly on. With lower settings, they posted much better battery life. This may still be the case... or not. We just don't know.

As for the charging time... big deal. There are other devices, game system and otherwise, that take just as long or longer. Hell the DS Lite was almost three hours.

Dual analogs... touch screen? And that's if some games even need to have two of them.

I think you're just being a grumpy puss for the hell of it. If anything, you should be unhappy with the lack of First party titles, like Paper Mario.

Ever played the PSP? After having a handheld with one analogue, you understand just how big a blunder it is, touch screen or no touch screen (I am one that hates touch screen for the record, never liked it on the DS).

Region locking should never exist on handhelds (or in general).

The price is absurd.

The listed battery life, until proven otherwise, is horrendous. No handheld should be that low.

Think what you like, but I am going off of stated facts. And these stated facts all point to a system that needs a revision before being purchased. Anyone who jumps in day 1, based off of THESE stats, is a sucker.

I'm holding out ont he 3DS for various reasons. The entry pricing point is one of them. I'm not going to pay $250 for a handheld system. I'll probably wait until the price drops a little. Also, I generally never buy the first gen of a particular technology. The majority of the kinks always seemed to get worked out by rev two. Lastly, I'm not really hip on the the hole 3D thing. I just feels like nothing more than a gimmick. Lastly, I generally buy used games about 75% of the time. I'd rather wait until a decent catalog of games has been built up.

I can agree with some of that (namely the need for Nintendo to clarify the battery issue), but I can think of a very good reason to avoid first-day purchase: the games.

Zelda and Paper Mario are slated for a Summer to Winter 2011 release. That's a really long time to wait for the guaranteed titles. The rest of the games everyone is really waiting for don't even have release estimates yet... the DS had the same kind of line-up: lots of third party bits with mediocre first party, but then got a lot more after the first year or so.

Not to mention that there could be any number of issues, like bad buttons, or loose hinges for the top, or defective screens. It's better to wait for others to go first and see what issues rise up before getting one yourself.

Plus, until I actually get to try it myself, I'm hesitant about the 3D effect. I can't really watch 3D movies, and most things 3D-related either aren't very effective with me, or cause minor headaches.

I am going to buy it day one, and I'm not too worried about any defects. I got a day-one DSi, and it had a problem with the screen and the stylus (The stylus was malformed; it made a huge scratch in the screen the first time I touched it), so I called nintendo and sent it to them. They sent me a new one, free of charge.

A few things that people don't seem to mention:

- Parental Controls for 3D. You can permanently turn off the 3D effect if you want, which will probably save battery life.

- One Friend Code per system. When you meet up with someone IRL, you don't even have to exchange codes; you automatically add each other to your friends list. Speaking of which...

- Friends List. Nintendo hasn't said too much, but in the virtual tour (http://www.nintendo.com/3ds) the light turn orange for "Friend Online". It sounds like online gaming is a much larger focus this time around.

- Pedometer Points. When you walk around with the 3DS, you earn points or coins or tokens or something that you can use to buy stuff in games. Again, they haven't said much, but I really like the idea of walking around and being able to buy games or unlock features. Although it would be nice if we could use the 'Personal Trainer walking' pedometer, rather than lugging the whole system around, but I guess that's kind of the whole point with the 3DS, eh?

I'm really excited. I'll probably get either Steel Diver or Pilotwings at launch, and for sure I'll still be deep into Pokemon Black and White, so I'll have lots to play.

I just hope it's not too much higher than $250 here in Canada.

History says add about $30 for the system and $10 for the games. If the system is $300 Canadian, then fuck that. $1.00 USD = $0.994 CAD right now, there's no reason to jack up the prices at all. That's damn near parity.

On the topic of analog sticks on handhelds, what exactly was the problem with just one analog on the PSP? I owned one for 2 years and I didn't have a single problem with it in the slightest.

If it was due to camera concerns, well I can understand that, but then that lies with the software and not the hardware as much, since developers could figure out ways to work around that(ideally), but if it's because certain types of games(like FPSs) didn't work with that type of layout, well why are you trying to play a genre that doesn't usually translate well to handhelds?

Anyway, as for the 3DS I'm pretty excited. I think out of the whole NES/SNES/GB days, the GB had my favorite titles like Metroid II, Link's Awakening, etc. so it's great to have those games coming back. I'm not entirely thrilled with the launch lineup as I was hoping for Kid Icarus earlier. Also the price is kinda high, but I guess reasonable for the type of tech they're touting. It'll be interesting to see how many devs go for full 3d experiences and how many opt for the additional horsepower by disabling it.

On that note, the battery life could be pretty low to some people(I guess), but there's the backlighting, the 3d, and the wireless functionality to worry about, so chances are it could still be within reason.

I'll probably grab it around the end of the year/early next year when maybe more colors/next revision(if any) are announced.

I have no idea.

But she bounces in and then there's a flash of light... like a Pokéball in the GameCube/Wii games.

I'm going to name mine SAMUS, and then breed her for eggs and trade them.

Could you order from a US website and pay in US dollars? That does seem super low to mark up the price that much, given that the value is essentially the same.

Mmm....think I'll wait until Resident Evil: Revelations and the rest of the bigger-name titles come out before thinking about getting one. Launch titles don't impress me, and neither does the price for a handheld.

The only reason I'd want one earlier is to show it off at PAX East, and enough privileged fanboys are going to be doing that as is.

Given the current exchange rate, it would be cheaper, yes. Assuming that they don't tax it once it comes across the border.

Given the small size of the thing... what can they slim down at this point? Maybe a better battery... but other than that? I'm not denying it will happen, I just have to wonder what they will change.

I'm hoping the SD slot is SDXC compatible, so I can get a 64 gb card and put a fuckton of music on it.

I know it's SDHC compatible. How high can those cards go now, anyway?

So OoT3D is looking pretty good: http://ds.ign.com/articles/114/1144795p1.html

I was hoping that they really would go to town with this upgrade, like the upgrade to Metroid with Zero Mission. I wanted redesigned dungeons, new characters, whole new sections, etc. Even SM64DS was a pretty great upgrade, with 4 playable characters and 40 new stars. So far, OoT3D just looks too much like the original. I dunno, maybe the later sections are really great, but I wanted a new experience, not just the original with a new coat of paint, you know?

EDIT: Also, am I the only one annoyed that the hearts are on the bottom screen?

I give it a month, tops, before the system is compromised.
