The Nintendo 3DS Is Awesome. Sort of...

GameJudgment's Patrick O'Rourke said,

"I genuninely like the Nintendo 3DS, but it's definitely far from perfect.

I picked one up for $169 just before the price drop. Cosco decided it would be a great idea to lower the price early. This allowed me to get a 3DS for the discounted price and still qualify for Nintendo's ambassador program - I totally worked the system yo."

I honestly think the 3DS is a great little system, Nintendo needs to release AAA franchises for the thing.

It is some nice hardware. It's a shame it's got screens so much smaller than my DS. That... that really sucks ass. But hardware-wise, it's very nice.

Of course, the main problem most people have with the 3DS isn't hardware, it's software.

How are the screens smaller than the DS? They aren't....

@Pat: you do realize the Nintendo DS has something like 4 different models, right? DS, DS Lite, DSi and DSi XL.

Here are the screen sizes:

DS: two 3.0" screens
DS Lite: two 3.0" screens
DSi: two 3.25" screens
DSi XL: two 4.2" screens

The 3DS has a 3.53" screen and a 3.02" screen. The DSi has a larger touch screen than the 3DS, and both of the DSi XL screens are much, much larger than the two 3DS screens.

I have a DSi XL. Comparing the screen size, 3DS may have better resolution, but so much smaller it's hard to crack it open after playing a game on my DS for a while.

I love my 3ds it is an amazing system! The games are coming and I'm looking forward to most of them..I also think this author should have spent a little more time with the system before writing this article..he would have seen that you can move every single icon around and that u can also go to your friends list,internet,notifications,an d game notes while a game or app is paused(you can also use the camera while using most apps).

You can move the icons around? I wasn't able to. How did you do it?

Simply hold down on one with your stylus(or finger)for more than a second and it will pop up..then drag it wherever you want it.
