1up: Nintendo Direct Unlikely to Reveal Redesigned 3DS Tomorrow

A series of Nintendo Direct events are set to take place tomorrow, as creatively announced today through Swapnote messages sent out to 3DS owners. This is the third time Nintendo Direct is taking place and as Nintendo of America and Europe will each be hosting their own videos, as opposed to a broadcast only in Japanese, we should be getting much more information that is of interest to those outside of Japan.

The story is too old to be commented.

redesign eh?

I was just about to pick up a 3DS, guess I'll wait to see what this version looks like.

Me too, hopefully it comes out before KH DDD is released.

I'm just waiting for it to be announced so i can finally buy it, i don't want to buy the god awful 'circle pad pro'.

darthv722043d ago

there would be room below the face buttons to add another circle pad.

Id get the circle pad pro anyways as a collectors item. It is so obscure that it could be a collectable one day.

@darth
The fact that it is so obscure (Intentionally: Nintendo seems to be actively downplaying it.) seemst topoints to a revision with a built in second stick being unlikely.
After all, why increase the cost of manufacturing including an under used optional feature no one needs?
Such a revision won't be a realistic option until the CPP gains wide acceptence and usage from consumers and devs alike, thus proving it absolutely neccesary.

Thing hasn't even been out a year...

ronin4life2043d ago

The article is saying why there won't be a revision announced soon, and to be honest, I don't see a revision happening for at least a year.

dark-hollow2043d ago

I think its. The habit to release redesigns every year in the handheld life span.

Ds
Ds lite
dsi
Dsi XL

Even Sony do the same
PSP 1000
PSP 2000
PSP 3000
PSP go.

With the ds, the second revision came 2 years after.
It was about the Same amount of time for the dsi after.
Only the dsi to dsixl was a single year.

They need to drop the price another 20 bucks or even more and watch it destroy the Vita. lol

Give me a 3DS phone and I'll be good.

Knight_Cid2043d ago

its destroying everything right now

no system in 2011 sold more than it did. And it was only on the market 9 months or so

ronin4life2043d ago

Nintendo has always said, even before launch, that there could be games made without 3d, so I don't see how continuing to say that suddenly points to a revision with toned down 3d.

gtxgamer22043d ago

why didnt they do that in the first place

Dojan1232043d ago

Just bought one last month......
