If You Have Ever Liked Anything Nintendo Has Ever Done, You Will Love the Nintendo 3DS,
This review is from: Nintendo 3DS - Cosmo Black (Video Game)
This is a run-down of all the most notable features in the Nintendo 3DS and how they stack up. I was probably too harsh on the StreetPass functionality as the technology itself is fantastic, but I am worried how well the feature will work in places that don't have high population densities. Still, a great system overall. Hopefully this video helps you decide if it's the type of device you want to own.
I do point out many criticisms of the system, but listen carefully for the many slices of praise. The criticism simply feels like it dominates because I have to justify it more than the praise, but I do think the 3DS is a great device.

Not a bad review, but I do honestly iwhs you could've been a little-less technical in your feedback on the system. Nevertheless, great points of the 3DS.

Yeah, probably not the greatest explanation for most people. I did make this review a couple of weeks ago though (I've had the 3DS for about a month), and it's really for a tech savvy audience who have been tracking the 3DS for a while. :)

David thanks for taking the time to do the review...Can you take a little constructive criticism? You need to slow down with your delivery and try not to rush your words together. It's not your accent but more of your delivery. I honestly could not listen to the entire review as I had to listen very intently to what some of the things you were saying.
Sorry if this offends you in anyway. I only would like to see future reviews from you that can be delivered in a fashion with clear precise pronunciation and in a delivery style that allows the listener to enjoy the review more.

Yeah, sorry about that. I get over excited when speaking. Especially when I'm delivering so much content.

He went to Japan and got it WAY early.

About the D-pad. DS games were designed for it, so they will be better played with it. When one little button press is required, you instead press a stick 100% of the way to the side? What about diagonal movement? Two buttons down. With analog, you might accidentally press just right or up for example.
