Looking pretty awesome. I'm gonna need to know the launch games, the price, and the online features/capabilities before I day one this, though.

I'd pretend to not know how to use one of those things in an effort to get the 3DBabes to help me.

The hands-on video above is amazing. I've had a perpetual smile on my face since I started reading about everything an hour ago. I'm so stoked for Kid Icarus Uprising, Animal Crossing, Nintendogs + Cats, Assassin's Creed, and Paper Mario. I would be absolutely blown away if ALL these games are launch games.

I've been refreshing here to try to see the E3 conference today, but it's not working. Anyone know where I can see the whole Nintendo conference?

I highly doubt they will launch with that entire lineup. Expect one big title from Nintendo, a few smaller titles, some shovelware from Ubisoft, and maybe 1-2 truly good third party games.

There's no way they'd dump all of those at once. They'd cut into the sales of each other. Better to space it out.

Did they ever release a time frame on when we might expect the 3DS to be release?

I see what you're saying. I would hope that Kid Icarus Uprising would be a launch title, but I could see Nintendo going with more popular franchises, like Nintendogs+Cats and Paper Mario. Anyway, my hope is Animal Crossing and Kid Icarus.

I love all 3 colors. After I get my new tv I'm buying this, hopefully day one.


I'm all over Teal. But I tend to skin my systems, so I suppose black would make sense... We'll just have to see when more pics are released.

I believe it comes out late this year in Japan. The expectation is that it'll launch next year, earlyish.

I like the teal/black and red/black. I wish it would release for this Christmas, that would be wonderful.

I had an uprising in my pants when I saw Kid Icarus Uprising lol.


:lol:

I'm excited about this, but am also horribly disappointed in the form factor. It's sleek, but with edges like that, it's going to be near impossible to put some sort of protective shell around it. And something that glossy DEMANDS a shell.


Not worried about that here. They'll be all kinds of cases and armors for the 3DS at launch, I'm sure.

Remaking arguably the best games in their respective series? I think I could survive on happiness alone for the next few days, eschewing food and drink for pure elation.


Seriously, I'm with you. My husband was shocked at my level of excitement. I'm so stoked about all this. All the games look wicked and the handheld itself is snazzy as can be. The strong third-party support amazes me. Assassin's Creed on 3DS? :applause:

SHIT JUST GOT REAL.

I too was blown away by Kid Icarus. I was not expecting it to look so graphically amazing and rich.

Seriously, I did :bouncy: for about 15 minutes after I first saw the line-up of games for this thing.

Holy shit, Ocarina of time remake just made the 3DS a day one buy.

Not only that but there are alot of good games coming for it too. It actually looks like the system has some horsepower in it.

LOL horsepower, epona :)

No price announced and no killer apps so far. Kid Icarus seems kind of cool, and I'd like Paper Mario with the 3D effect (providing it's not just a remake), but not enough to buy it at launch. This is the first time I've said that about a new Nintendo platform in like 10 years.

no killer apps so far.


Kid Icarus, Zelda, Mario Kart, Pilotwings, Star Fox, Paper Mario, Metal Gear Solid, Resident Evil, Ninja Gaiden, Dead or Alive, Super Street Fighter IV, Bomberman, Professor Layton, Final Fantasy, Kingdom Hearts, probably others I'm forgetting...

And you're saying no killer app? I'm not even suggesting all of these are - I'm saying SURELY one of those is appealing. Just going by announcements alone, that's more than the launches of the Wii, DS, PSP, 360, and PS3 combined.

stupid question but are you going to have to wear the stupid 3d glasses while playing this game



it wouldnt shock me if the 3D fad last a few years some major eye problems come out of it.


watching a 3D movie for 2 hours not bad but wearing 3D glasses for 4 to 8 hours a day , you would think would really #$#$# up your eyes


(i even think back in the 80s the 3d fad died cause many people were complaing about major headaches and other problems after watching so much 3D at one time, now the Tech improved over time but still something to think about)

price point 249 easy

and did they really show the system or just videos of What the games look like.... if the system was even planned for this year in japan you would think they would have working units
WOOOO I STINK
