Couldn't stand it personally ... I'm not a huge mobile device junkie to begin with (though you can pry my iPod and my Droid out of my cold dead hands).

I've tried the 3DS a couple of times and it never made me think "wow, i wish Splinter Cell was on here".

MGS3 is one of my favorite games of all time, I actually prefer the game play and story over MGS4. I would LOVE an updated version but it's not worth buying a 3DS for. I'll continue hoping for an HD remake on PS3.

I'm passing on the 3DS. Holding out for an NGP.

Yeah, I can';t wait to get my hands on an NGP, looks amazing, and I'm sure we'll have our minds blown at E3 in June.

Of course it is :) though hardcore is a subjective term

yes it is...but if you want a lot of "hardcore :)" games, you have to wait for a while.. by the end of this year it will be best handheld for me that I ever had :) at the moment it's good too, but there's a lack of games..system is cool though
