I don't have any information on this topic, but I think that this was a useless update, all they really did was add 3D graphics and make it a bit bigger... 

The 3DS makes a few advancements from the Nintendo DS installment. I've heard that it's running on the Nvidia Terga platform so it's most certainly not just an upgrade from the standard DS. Apparently the LCD screens are 3DLCDs, but I've never used one myself =. But, yeah.

gameboy -> gba - bigger, full colour screen, more buttons

gba -> ds - bigger, two screens, one touch, wifi

ds -> 3ds - bigger, 3D screen, motion detection, more input (thumb slider thing + cameras), and then the better online/wifi communication stuff (communicating all the time no matter what game you're in etc)

and then of course each one getting technically better power wise. I think it's a good enough successor. Definitely not just a DSi like upgrade.

Just before they got to the 3DS stuff at the press conference, I thought meh, I won't get one for a while.

Now seeing it I really want one XD

All the 3rd party support is extremely epic too.

(BTW I've used a 3D screen on a Japanese phone about  year ago and didn't like it, but I trust nintendo to deliver what's just right for gamers. Proof starts with the 3D "volume" slider I guess)

kid Icarus looked amazing for a ds game.. that 3ds is going to blow other 3d systems away, especially the ones that require glasses rofl..

im looking forward to the starfox 64 remake on it.

id like to see some actual footage of it though.

They don't really allow you to take any shots of the screens, as of course you cant view the real deal like that and so don't want people judging it just from that, and of course with it just being a 64 remake a video wouldn't do much lol

Looks like there's at long last going to be an OoT remake too lol

Nothing dealing with the motion controls right now it seems though

And yeah, PS3 needs you to have what? A PS3, eye, move + extra bit?, 3D TV, glasses... lol >_<

Would probably be very nice if I could get all of that stuff, but nintendo building it into their hardware as the main features and having the games built around that is a smart move imo, as in reality, I'm never going to be able to enjoy all the best the PS3 has to offer :/ But I will easily with he 3DS I feel :D

though.. we wont dont know what kind of 3d the 3ds uses... some say its not the pop out of the screen 3d :D

i actually wouldn't mind that if it doesn't..

And yeah, PS3 needs you to have what? A PS3, eye, move + extra bit?, 3D TV, glasses... lol >_<

yea, they are requiring a good bit stuff for just few extras. i know that if i want motion controlled games, ill stick to the wii. i think ps3 could have done better than do something already done.

There are different kinds of 3D now? :D

If it doesn't have the factor of depth, then it'd just be 2D, like it has been up until now lol

If it does, then it's 3D, and everyone's talking about that depth.

What else is there?

Not as if all that's new is 3D-ness though :[

I thought the 3D it may be gimmicky, but glad to hear it's all working awesomely :[

@Crim: yeah, not so attractive when it's nothing new >_<

Also this made me lol: http://art.penny-arcade.com/photos/903426984_Tg2it-L.jpg

That's a DSi game. It uses the camera to detect how you're moving the DS then just moves the camera in the scene in the game, so it's as if the DS's screens are a window into a 3D world, where you can move the point of view around but just moving the DS around, quite naturally.

The game play is 3D, like 99% of games today, just the method of moving the DS to move the camera makes things look rather natural and cool.

The 3DS uses a 3D screen, so you do not only see the horizontal and vertical planes like a normal screen, but the depth plane too, just like seeing a film in 3D, just without the glasses (so no need to carry an extra accessory around and no loss in screen brightness etc).

You need two eyes to comprehend depth and the any 3D films/games, including the 3DS has two different versions of what its displaying for each eye. You see one with one eye, one with the other, therefore enabling even a film or a game to be viewed in 3D and for you to actually see depth.

That DSi game is completely different. The 3DS IS the "jump out" type, as that's the only type of real 3D there is, as the 3rd dimension would be... depth (going in and out, not left and right or up and down). You can see no real depth on the DSi, or on that video, as your computer's screen wouldn't be a 3D one (unless it is of course lol, but then that video's not made for it so again it'd still just be 2D emulating a 3D effect of things getting smaller as they go off into the distance, like all "3D" games have been up until recently.)

Listen to some of the 3DS impression videos:

Yeah, I really want need one too lol

I'll be in Japan from November, which while is a VERY good thing, also means my money will soon probably completely disappear (from the fact that I'll need a new phone, which while I could probably get a year or tow old one for free, I probably wouldn't be able to resist getting the newest one >_< and have rent/food etc to pay/buy >_<)

Apparently Nintendo are going to publicise release date(s) and pricing plans... on the last day of September I think it was? (Check all the big game sites for confirmation if needed)
