Product Description

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.

This review is not about the 3DS itself - I have not yet had the chance to experience its full glory - but rather about the process of ordering it on Amazon.

I received my 3DS today (in Flame Red, which is a great color btw - not as pink as the photos make it look) and it is not a USA system! This means I cannot register it for Club Nintendo or even (according to customer support) play a large number of games produced for Nintendo USA. Nintendo support was very nice - they sold me a refurbished 3DS XL for $158 after tax and waived an expedited shipping fee, so it will arrive in a couple of days. That's awesome. But I did have to spend an hour on the phone with them figuring out the mystery of my foreign 3DS system, and now I have to deal with putting everything back in the box and sending it back to Amazon. Angry face.

Save yourself the trouble and BUY LOCALLY IF YOU CAN. Make sure you are getting a US system (assuming you live in the US)!!! The serial code will start with "CW" if it is a US system. I'm an expert now, obviously.

5.0 out of 5 stars Impressive device! September 18, 2011
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
With an impressive fall game line up and great online shop content, the Nintendo 3DS is a promising device. I think it is a great leap forward into portable gaming and most likely the future. The 3D effect looks great while not being overly exaggerated. My only complaint is that the viewing angle is a bit slim, but easily tolerated as long as you aren't running any marathons while playing games. One of the key features to me is the "Nintendo Video" app available at the eShop. You get free 3D content delivered and some very creative 3D animations. The AR games included are interesting as well by using the dual cameras for game play. Hopefully there are some title games that can use the AR ability as well. (Mario kart on your dining table anybody?) I got mine in red (The best color) and to me it could be the most beautiful color ever released by Nintendo. Ease of use is key here and the analog stick is a great addition. Sound is pretty decent with a good surrounding effect. I look forward to new titles and believe that this is a step in the right direction for a company who started the mobile revolution.

3.0 out of 5 stars 3D Coming Along October 29, 2011
By Russ
Fun: 3.0 out of 5 stars   
Very impressive 3D graphics. The cards that come with the unit create 3D experiences which are interesting. Not sure that there are many 3D games or features for adults. Seems that market needs to be developed.

5.0 out of 5 stars AWESOME December 17, 2013

People argue about the battery life and that people should buy the XL and whatnot. I personally do not want a huge 3DS laying in my pocket and prefer a more compact, portable handheld. The original 3DS is comfortable in the hands, though using the circle pad after a long time it does stress my thumb a bit, but you get used to it. I LOVE the red color, it really pops. Sadly I could not buy this red one in stores so I bought one online and do not regret it at all. I found the 3D effect to be harsh on your eyes after awhile, so I just leave it off.

Strangely, the one I ordered has writing on the back of the 3DS in just pure Spanish, really don't know why. It also says "Anatel." Other than that it still works fine in English and DOES play games in English, so there is no problem there.

Mine also came with a charging stand, and I really like that it did.

Overall I really love this 3DS system and can't wait to play Super Smash Bros for 3DS on this baby.
