Product Description

Nintendo 3DS - Aqua Blue

Amazon.com

Modern handheld gaming has long been dominated by Nintendo and Sony. Each hardware manufacturer has multiple viable offerings derived either directly, or evolving from the respective DS and PlayStation Portable product lines. All of these devices are impressive multifunctional devices, with designs meant to encourage gameplay on the go, integration with the Internet, backwards compatibility to previous games, and so on, but each goes about this in different ways. Taking a few minutes to examine the main features, and getting more familiar with available options, accessories and possible limitations of each handheld is the optimal way to determine which is the best choice for a player.

Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
I've been a huge Nintendo fan since the GBA. So it stands to reason I'd get the 3DS. There are many good things about this system that make it an excellent purchase (perhaps not a "must buy" but a great purchase nonetheless!):

- Graphics are sharp, crisp, colors pop and overall it is ultra pleasing to the eye
- I love the color (I got Aqua Blue) and surprisingly it is not a fingerprint magnet
- Enhanced options and potentially netflix and some game boy and game boy color remakes virtual
- Analog stick is responsive, easy to use, and us fans can say Nintendo finally heard us!
- I was very surprised to hear a rich vibrant sound coming from this unit. I didn't have headphones on and it was much better than the DSiXL unit
- The menu navigations are good but the three buttons do take some getting used to
- The stylus feels classy and I love the adjustability of it - very nice for all types of hands

There are many other benefits to this system and my fellow reviewer's have covered most of them. I myself use the unit to play games - I typically don't take photo's or surf the web or do various other sort of extra things. Sleep mode would be a good example - where you can put your 3DS in sleep mode and it does various things. If you are interested in those then check out the excellent video reviews posted.

However I have a caveat for anyone that suffers from migraine's or headaches. I played for an hour and a half in 3D last night and I had a massive migraine this morning. I felt the beginnings of a headache last night but I didn't expect to be hit with the whole light sensitive, nausea and vomiting, misery of this morning. So I searched the net to find out if that was a potential issue and sure enough it is. Does that mean I won't play my 3DS?

5.0 out of 5 stars A great buy even if you do not like 3D! March 27, 2011
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
I just picked up my Aqua Blue 3DS and I am very pleased. The 3DS is not perfect by any means but I do think that it is a fine system so far. As I write this some features like Netflix are not available so I may come back and update this review when I can test these features out for myself.

The system feels comfortable to hold in my hands. The size isn't too far off from the DSi. The color has a sort of metallic look to it that is very classy though I do wish that Nintendo had given us more colors to choose from. There will undoubtedly be more colors to choose from in the future though. The color isn't exactly an aqua blue, it is more of a bluish-green.

The question that most of you probably have is whether or not the 3D effect works. Yes, it does but it will take some getting used to. Keep in mind that the 3D visuals depend on the system's camera to track your head and so you will need to look at the system from a specific point for the best results in 3D. It isn't that hard to keep your head in that spot but you may need some time to get used to this. The 3DS provides a glimpse into an actual game world so you are not just looking at 3D graphics, you can actually move the system and your view changes accordingly. For example, your character in the game may step into an in-game room and you can physically move your 3DS to the right and your view will shift as you move the system. It's a lot of fun and one of the included mini games will actually have you moving around your desk or kitchen table in order to look into a hole from the right angle.

At first your eyes might feel a little buggy after playing with the 3D effects. That is normal but you should get used to it after a few plays.

5.0 out of 5 stars The God of Handheld Games June 14, 2011
By Smarts
If you for something Awesome you found it. This is the greatest thing the the Nintendo company will give you for now. So make the best of it. The picture quality of the 3DS is amazing. The 3DS also can normal DS and DSi games too. If this your first time buying a DS and don't own any games you don't have to worry about it. The 3DS has built in games and activities. So go ahead and buy it.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Basic Review From My Son's Point of View January 2, 2012
Verified Purchase
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
An interview with my son about his 3DS. He is eight years old.
Q: How does the 3DS compare to the regular DS?
A: The 3DS has better software and animation. It seems like a mini Wii. I like the collapsible stylus much better. The cradle is cool...you can just lift it off.
Q: What is your favorite part of the new 3DS?
A: It has a camera and a special game that you move the camera around to shoot things around you. I like to take pictures of pictures in my house to make new characters.
Q: Is there anything about the new 3DS that you don't like?
A: It's more confusing than the old system, but I can get help from you when I need it.
Q: What would have been your color choice if you had had one (it was a Christmas present)?
A: Turquois
Q: What is your favorite game cartridge?
A: The Legend of Zelda - Ocarina of Time

Open comments from my son: It has Netflix and I like that much better. I like the whole thing. There are so many details that I cannot explain every single one.

Well, there you have it. Not as in depth as some other reviews, but certainly a different viewpoint.

One last question: What was your favorite Christmas present this year?
A: My skateboard
