Nintendo 3DS


Though it's a bit pricey, the Nintendo 3DS successfully offers a glasses-less 3D experience that needs to be seen to be believed.

3D gaming without special (and expensive!) glasses ; 3D effect slider to adjust 3D for max comfort ; Shoots and displays 3D photographs ; Comes preinstalled with a bevy of software and a drop and charge dock ; Smaller screen means fewer 3D headaches

Launch lineup is lacklustre ; Low-resolution lenses provide grainy photos ; The 3D effect can "snap out" due to sensitive viewing angles and games that encourage movement ; Very short battery life ; Expensive

"Great console, 3D with no glasses with great potential"


Picture quality on the top screen is great and widescreen is welcome. The ability to adjust 3d depth via slider helps against fatigue (eyes). However the contrast to the quality on the bottom screen is evident and you wish for a clearer screen with...

3D with no glasses, build quality, clear screen (top)

No killer app, limited library of games

Nintendo 3DS- NDS


I only really want the console because of Zelda Ocarina of Time Remake. I don't really care about battery life because I usually don't play for more than 1 1/2 hours max. If travelling in a car. buy a $15 car charger and your ready to go. It plays...

Nintendo 3DS- NDS


Never really played a DS as I bought a PSP when it was released in October 2005 and never really found it practical for real "gaming on the go," mainly because of the pocket-straining dimensions.

Interesting concept; swathe of features

No games at the moment worthy of replacing my PSP for one; styling

Nintendo 3DS- NDS


I'm hoping it's worth the money... it's either going to be absolutely amazing or a complete and utter failure. I'm hoping the fact that it displays 3D doesn't turn too many developers off the console but the fact that the graphics are still well under...

3D, Analogue stick, Zelda: Ocarina of Time

Battery Life, Price, lack of release date titles
