    Default I am not impressed with the new 3DS.

    It's selling horribly everywhere. (Besides Japan of course.) People have argued it's because parents are worried that their child might ruin their vision from it.

    Or maybe it just sucks. It's not even 3D, just stereoscopic. I mean, in 1838 that was pretty bad ass, but I'm not about to spend a quarter of a grand for this outdated technology in 2011. It won't sell and this "3D revolution" is going to pitter out like it has in the movie industry.

    the vita looks fucking awesome. the only downside is that they replaced the xmb. and 'vita'.

    I simply won't buy it for the price; I find it appalling that it's being sold for twice what the Wii is being sold for, just because it's 3D. If I ever do get it, it'll be a year or two from now, when the price has dropped at least $100.

    the 3D isn't essentially the reason to get a 3DS ironicially. its mostly the new software coming up. the 3D is simply a bonus.

    PS: the vita has 3 main flaws (in order from least problematic to most)

    3. not an original launch title announced. all the games are either rip offs (from god of war and mario kart) or remakes with less graphical attentiveness (uncharted), but the 3DS did have its share of unoriginal launch titles as well, so this one is low on the list.

    2. the lack of creative design. it has almost no changes astheticially from its predacessor, and it looks a bit too bulky for a portable system.

    1. the back touch "screen". ok, this thing fails on MANY levels. it not only disables you from holding the system in a comfortable manner without interrupting the gameplay, but it makes the dual shock analogs they have added harder to control with the implemented back touch "screen". its a concept that will not work in execution, i have great faith in that. its a waste of space that could be more suited to comfortably resting your hands on.

    i dont really see like most people do. while your brain combines the sensory inputs from your two eyes into a single cohesive picture, mine doesnt and i get two images, one per eye. i tend to look at the image through my left eye and ignore my right. a consequence of this is that the optical illusion that 3d pictures employ doesnt work on me.

    johnny depp cant see 3d too so hey at least i have something in common with johnny depp.

    3 and 2 are faults shared by the 3ds. no one can really ascertain the validity of 1 until the device actually comes out.

    If that's the case, why wouldn't I just wait for the new Wii U? Now that, I'll pay $350 for.

    Both my brother and I can't see 3D on the 3DS because it doesn't work on people with glasses. So yeah, I'm just glad that it's him and not me who bought it.

    There isn't actually a fat, Italian plumber running around inside it either, it's just a bunch of frames played at a fast rate to give the illusion of movement! Whodda thought?

    I'm not buying the 3DS. It hurts my eyes and the price to value ratio isn't adding up to a good purchase in my eyes. I'll just stick with my DSi XL and wait and see if another item in the DS series comes out.

    No here me out, your willing to buy things that remind you of YOUR child hood, it makes you nostalgic. I am willing to bet the reason you got the wii was some remake for some game. But when it comes to brand new childhood things, that you never started to enjoy during your own childhood, then you totally hate it. This is a basic concept for all generations.

    hey duggout, isnt stereoscopy the only possible visual illusion for 3D since the eye's only sense of depth is the combination of 2 images, which is the solid definition of stereoscopy?

    and the 3DS did it cleverly.

    No its one image in front of another, there is a bit of a diference.

    3D technology involves tricking both eyes to see diferent things, and the brain combines them together to create the illusion of 3D.
