The Nintendo 3DS....

So I'm unsure how many of you around here are gamers, but I was wondering if anyone here actually owns the 3DS? I swore to myself I wouldn't buy another Nintendo system near launch, or at all for that matter (I was disappointed with the Wii), but damn Ocarina of Time! I love that game so much and have a ton of great memories playing that game growing up which is what really tempts me to pick the updated version of it. I just can't get past paying 250$ to do that (Should get a used Ibanez RG!!). It would be nice to get an opinion from someone who owns the thing and not a die hard gaming fanboy from a video game site.

Like I said though not really sure how many around here are big into games D:

Re: The Nintendo 3DS....


My nephew has one (he's a college student but nintendo super geek.. might wear a Zelda tshirt on his eventual wedding day) and i though the display was terrible... the the 3D just wont give a good focal plane and it's super distracting. Not fun. Poor sales are no surprise, which is good as games will be recompiled for DS/DSi.

Of the 5 kids (he was the oldest) that were there at the time none of them liked it or wanted to buy it (my little one wanted and got a DSiXL for her 7th bday after seeing it). Maybe if it was $129 but it's priced way wrong... glen

Re: The Nintendo 3DS....

Yeah I was REALLY surprised when they announced the pricing of the unit. Nintendo has always been on the cheaper side. Really strange for them to release a 250$ unit. I've seen very few people think that's a decent price for the system. It seems even the people that REALLY like it still feel it was too much money, but bought it anyway.

Re: The Nintendo 3DS....

I own one and have really enjoyed it. The 3d has a definitely sweet spot, but once you get used to that it works surprisingly well. I specifically bought it for the 90s remakes (Zelda, Starfox, Mario Kart) and so far I'm loving the old zelda.
