Nintendo has just revealed a new 3DS revision during the latest Nintendo Direct.
Still no second analog sick Fail
yeeeeeeaaaaaah. now im not going to bother with the console. Nintendo released the console with no games and no services at 250. then 2 months later dropped the price. now a few more months they reveal a 2nd analog add on. another few months (basically a year after launch) nintendo ALREADY releases a revision, its a massive smack in the face right after another to the original owners like my brother, and to top it off they still dont include the 2nd analog stick. this means that in a few more months or a year they will make ANOTHER revision with another analog stick. good job nintendo, not..... its a shame too, the 3ds is just about to start getting some good games
I was hoping for a Lite, thinner version. But instead they made it bigger :/ I'm fine with a larger display, but not at the expense of an enormously huge system! A second circle pad would have been great too.
Expect this to sell in drones, more sales = more games for the 3DS xD omg Kingdom hearts will look so beautiful on that screen
Not a huge problem, I'm sure they'll include 2 analog sticks in revision #6 :P
@Haha123 Not to be a debbie downer or anything but actually it's going to look worse on that screen due to the exact same images being stretched over a larger area.
Apple says Hi! Get used to it.
but it is odd that they didnt use the extra space for a 2nd pad. then again, they have gone this long without the need for one in existing games that maybe they felt putting one now would cause confusion to their fan base. if anything it could have sparked interest in the circle-pad add on. thus engaging developers into using it. Oh well. I guess we will see a circle-pad XL on the market soon.
@TheLeapist Have you ever played DSi XL? The graphics actually look better, even with this "bigger with same resolution" thing.
No 2nd analogue? :( thing is bigger, the frankenstick-add-on would work with this model?
Yeah, I like the bigger screen, but without a 2nd analog stick that's just not enough to make me trade in my current 3DS for this new model.
I dont mind the lack of a second analog stick. My main gripe is that i want to be able to put my digital video and .avi files on the sd card to play on the system. Not sure why Nintendo won't let us. They would look great on that bigger screen.
3DS is where the portable games are. Anyway, I guess only hardware that sells can actually have a revision.
Lol, jealous of the Vita? 3DS is good, but both systems have a wonderful lineup of games. Acting like Nintendo's is better is just sad when anyone can see that both offer amazing games.
I didn't mention Vita, but since you did, why would anyone be jealous of it?
Well, I have a Vita and a 3DS.... the support (first party and third party support) is 100x better on the 3DS.... I can't wait for Professor Layton, Luigi's Mansion, Kingdom Hearts, NSMB2, Fire Emblem, Castlevania and some other amazing games.
don't forget phoenix wright and elite beat agents!
I knew this was coming since they announced the original 3DS. But no 2nd analog nub like PSP!? Bigger Screen Bigger Pixels like the DSiXL? No AC adapter? Does this mean Nintendo is expecting Nintendo 3DS owners to buy this. Does this mean the next Nintendo handheld PS Vita beater is not too far way next year? http://www.product-reviews.... This all happening too fast!
if anything Nintendo fucked up by announcing a second stick, why do we need to have more shite when we already have a circle pad, d-pad, YBXA L&R AND a touch screen?! Is that not enough for developers to utilise?!
A second analog stick would totally screw everyone who has already bought a regular 3Ds, with game development focusing on that add-on, gamers would be forced to buy a peripheral or the new revision for future games. So its good that nintendo didn't listen to the crybabies of the interwebz.
but people are still forced to buy the tacky 2nd analog add-on.....and now they need to make another add on this this 3ds is even bigger. i guess you guys rather buy the add on then a new console, but not everyone likes the inconvinience of an incomplete handheld
No troll Lucretia. Nobody is forced to buy the add-on. I have a 3DS since it launched and for me there is no need for a second analog.
Lol, imagine this already big thing with a circle pad add-on :D
You'd think there would have been a second stick with that kind of design as it oddly seems to resemble a... Wii U Gamepad??
No 2nd circle pad. Glad I didn't wait for the revision and went ahead and got one.
Meh I don't have one. So the XL version is a better choice.
That thing is huge compared to the regular!!
This is pretty good, The screen was a bit small so this is nothing but an improvement! Nintendoeverthing.com has broken advertisements now?!
Are you on Firefox? I know the site never worked right for me when I used Firefox.
No I'm using chrome. It's stupid how when they say "you can skip it" you press SKIP and it just reloads the time back to 30 seconds!
A year later & Nintendo is already making a new model 3DS....geez. Still does not add the 2nd nub....lame. Screen still smaller than the Vita too.
well I guess the vita just lost Japan. Its good though, Im not forced to buy it, I do want a bigger screen, so i'll see, maybe in the future.
A bigger screen wasn't the "revision" they needed. A second nub would have made more sense. If anything, you can charge the same amount it would be if you were to buy an original 3DS and second nub add-on. I will say the bigger screen looks nice, though. I wonder if it's the same resolution as the original?
LOL. Nintendo is the Activision of handheld.
