About this item

This aqua blue Nintendo 3DS includes two screens. The bottom touchscreen makes use of a telescoping stylus that is stored in the portable game system itself.

The aqua blue Nintendo 3DS also has a 3D Depth Slider that lets players select the level of 3D they enjoy most on this portable video game console. The 3D effect can be ratcheted up to the highest level, scaled back to a more moderate setting or even turned off completely, depending on the preference of the user. It also features inward-facing and dual outward-facing cameras, along with gyro and motion sensors for the ultimate gaming experience.

In this review i want to just comment on all the bad things mentioned about the 3DS either by certain reviewers or by people on forums. The battery life being horrible: This all is up to the type of person that is using the 3DS. If you just play games one to two hours at a time it won't effect you. Now if you're a marathon gamer this can be a problem. But there are solutions. If you go on long road trips i suggest buying a car charger for the 3DS. If you go on long flights i would suggest buying the battery add on for longer battery life. But i don't see this as much a problem as people say because there are solutions if you must have a longer battery life. Plus for me i haven't had to charge it much. I played for an hour and it was still full bars on the charge. People saying the 3D sweet spot is too small: I would have to disagree a lot on this one. Most normal people do not play their 3DS sideways. That's the only way you can not see the 3D well. Or you shake your system a lot while you play. I have stood at far distances and seen the 3D fine and also held it closer to my face and didn't have any problems. People who say the 3D is just a gimmick: At first i would have agreed with this. But after playing for awhile i would have to say it's more than a gimmick. Especially in games like pilotwings and ridge racer it helps a great deal when compared to 2D. It adds depth so that you can see how far you are from objects and turns which helps a great deal. Now games such as street fighter can be said it's a gimmick but unlike some people who have said they turn the 3D off most times i disagree. I hate turning the 3D off after seeing the life it brings to the games even street fighter. It adds another level of detail in my opinion. I do suggest tweaking the 3D slider to get to where you feel comfortable playing in 3D because for some it can be a discomfort on the highest setting. The only bad thing i would have to say is the launch lineup of games. But more games are coming and more to be seen come the electronic entertainment expo.

Purchased as a birthday present for our 9 year old. Beautiful graphics. Easy to use. LOVE the AR cards that come with it. We put the question card on the corner of our dining room table and ooohed and awwed as the 3ds made the table surface seem to sink and rise, followed by a pop out dragon that breathes fire at you. Just amazing to see it in action. Coolest handheld EVER! Now if I could just get it away from dad....

The 3D technology is incredible, and without the glasses!! It is so immersive and sometimes I lose track that it is in 3D... Then something is just so breathtaking I stop and say "WOW" out load. This gaming system cannot be explained it has to be experienced.

What an awesome way to interact with your environment. My kids love taking 3D pictures and then the faces go into a game and get all warped and distorted and you have to shoot them. Can't wait for Lego Pirates!

It's awesome! I like the camera feature and you can play games off of the cards. Must be careful, as it is quite addictive to children of all ages. 3D is totally awesome. Love the games in 3D.

  • A. Yes, it plays all DS titles I've tried, though obviously not in 3D. It doesn't have a slot for GB Advanced games, but does have an SD Card slot. With the wifi connection, you can download older titles that have been released on the DS download service, but only the demo's are free (and maybe other select games and apps).
