About this item

This Midnight Purple Nintendo 3DS includes two screens. The bottom touch screen makes use of a telescoping stylus that is stored in the portable game system itself. The top screen displays 3D visuals to the naked eye — looking at the screen is like peering through a window into a world where characters and objects have true depth. The Midnight Purple 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.

    I actually traded in my pink 3ds for the midnight purple version and I love it. The darker color helps keep it from looking dirty from fingerprints and other wear. It almost has an aqua shimmer to it when the light hits it.

    My 9 year old son loves it. It is performing well. He's had it for over a month now. I'm glad I got it rather than the XL because this one fits in his little hands better. Lots of additional online options. He likes being able to trade Pokemons with other players around the world. I like the parental controls. He uses it all the time. So, it's definitely worth the money.

    on the original gs on the bottom there is a slot for gameboy games. I was wonderiong if i could play my gameboy games on the nintendo 3ds.

    • A. Yes, you can. But not in the traditional way that you used to play games via cartridges. The difference is that you will have to download the games for Gameboy and Gameboy Advance from the Nintendo eShop. These are electronic versions of the games and not the older cartridge versions. So, in other words if you or your son has a lot of older cartridge based Gameboy or Gameboy Advance games sitting around at home, you CANNOT play them on the 3DS since there is no cartridge slot for these games. You will have to buy the electronic versions of the same games from Nintendo. You can do this right on the 3DS system using a WiFi connection. You will need a router to take advantage of the 3DS wireless features. Fortunately, all or most of the older Gameboy and GBA games are cheap in electronic form and only about $3-4 for most games. Not every game is available, however, but more are released about once a week. Keep this in mind. And in the meantime, you can sell all your old cartridge Gameboy and Gameboy Advance games on eBay to get money for the electronic download versions.

    • A. According to Nintendo.com: Nintendo DS and Nintendo DSi games will be displayed in 2D graphics. Select Nintendo DS games that use accessories in the Game Boy Advance slot of the Nintendo DS system are not compatible with the Nintendo 3DS system.
