Sears’ Description of the 3DS Must be Seen to be Believed

Sears is retailer obviously out of touch with the industry and nowhere is that more apparent then on their own site.

Makes sense. The last time Sears was relevant, Tim Allen had a coke habit. Or was that afterwards? I don't know, Tim Allen does a lot of coke, though.

“When it comes to handheld gaming, you can’t beat the three-dimensional fun of the Nintendo 3DS. While other handheld gaming systems focus on graphics and sound, Nintendo looked for a new and creative way to play games, this time in 3D. The technology in the Nintendo 3DS allows the user to view games and content in 3D without having to wear those silly glasses. Basically, the screen sends a different image to each eye so that you get the full effect of objects flying at you in three dimensions.

It still has two screens and the traditional game play buttons. However, this version, aside from offering three dimensional pictures, has a few added features to enhance your gaming experience. The 3DS has a built-in gyroscope, which means that moving your device will affect game play as much as hitting the down button. The 3DS also has 3 cameras so that you can get a clear picture every time. Plus, the 3DS allows you to project your games onto images of your room, which is pretty cool if you want to incorporate real-life objects into your gaming experience.

If you want to do something besides game, the 3DS can do that, too. You have the opportunity to download games and look at online content from your Nintendo DS. Additionally, the DS has a built-in GPS, which means you don’t have to buy a separate Garmin or Tom-Tom when you take a road trip. You can also take a trip down memory lane by downloading and playing games from older systems like Game Boy Advance, as well as games from the popular NES and Super NES console systems.

If you want a handheld gaming device that is easily to personalize and fun for the whole family, then a Nintendo 3DS should be exactly what you need. With a great variety of games for just about anyone, it is a fun and light-hearted system that can also produce realistic graphics and game play. You can play many of your favorite Wii games as well as games from the classic Nintendo systems anytime you want and anywhere you are, making this the ultimate accessory for long road trips and endless flights.

If you want to get started with a fin pocket-sized gaming adventure, then come to Sears, where we will outfit you with everything you need to have the ultimate Nintendo 3DS experience. Start with a console and a few games, then customize your device so no one else in the family feels entitled to play on your system. You can opt for decorative covers and cases, as well as custom stylus options that fit every personality. Don’t forget to add on extra charger options and other accessories to round out your experience. Browse your great selection to pick out something you will love and play with for years to come.”

Was that actually on the Sears website, because I couldn't find it in there.

I only go to Sears for games for two reasons

1 They normally put extra stock of pretty new games on clearance for 10 dollars. I got Mass Effect 3 a few weeks after release for $9.99 :P

2 People forget about them. So when a game is selling out they normally have it. They had a PS4 still in stock when everyone was going nuts trying to find one lol

Not the first time I read a butchered product description in a circular or website. My favorite was a description of GTAIV that was available at a Local TJ MAXX. It described it as a game thats soul purpose was to kill prostitutes and take their money for points...I still laugh at that to the day....

On PS4's launch day the consoles couldn't be found anywhere in my town. My buddy actually went to Sears and they had 5 just sitting there.

So this guy is right, when people think video games, apparently Sears is the last place anyone thinks of.
