It is so great that Nintendo of America made official that in its first day, the 3DS already was the most selled Nintendo console on its release date! They will not publish the numbers until April 14 because they want to publish the sales number foer its first week. In Japan (God HELP THEM!!!) in its first hours, it sold over 400,000 consoles!!!
-It has the ability to produce 3D effects without the need of special glasses.
-You can play Nintendo DS games in it.
-It is compatible with the Nintendo DS's and DSi's software.
-Its price right now is of $250.00
-It weighs 230 grams (about 8 ounces).
-It has three cameras: one 2D on the fron, and TWO 3D cameras on the back. :D
-It has the same buttons of the DS, but also it has new ones (Cicle Pad, 3-axis acceloremeter, 3-axis gyroscope, 3D depth slider, Wireless communications switch).
-About the 3D depth slider, if you don't like 3D or it gives you problems, with this you can adjust the 3D effect, even leaving it in 2D!!!
-It has a 2GB memory inside it.
-Its battery lasts between 3-5 hours.
-It comes with pre-loaded applications, like a Mii creator, which can connect with the Wii's Mii Channel.
Nintendo has publicly stated that the 3D mode of the 3DS is not intended for use by children ages six and younger, citing possible harm to their vision. Nintendo suggests that younger players use the device's 2D mode instead, although the American Optometric Association has assured parents that 3D gaming in moderation would not be harmful for children. Nintendo has stated that a parental control involving a PIN will allow parents to disable autostereoscopic effects. Don't worry!!! It is still really awesome to play in 2D, and it is for your own health!.
