"Awesome update to the DS line."4.5 starson by electroplid
Pros: Widescreen, great resolution, pre-installed software, backwards capability, 3D photo taking
Cons: limited viewing range, low-res cameras, have to wait for online features.
Summary: I've had the 3DS for little over 12 hours or so, but I'm already in love! Playing games in 3D is really cool and fun. Of course some games fare better than others due to the precise nature of the viewing area. I have Lego Star Wars, Pilotwings and Super Monkey Ball and all of those look great in 3D.
I really like taking 3D pictures and I totally wish the cameras could have been at least 2 Megapixel. I mean, seriously. However, the daytime and outdoor pictures seem to look pretty good and the camera does offer some neat customization features to help you get the most out of the lenses.
I'm a bit bummed out that there is no internet yet, but I'm sure that when it is enabled it will be really cool. The OK Go video is a great hint at the possibilities of 3D video on the 3DS.
It's a really hot package, and I recommend, but I understand that $250 is a lot to pay for some people. Perhaps as more games come online nad the internet features get more realized, it will seem like a better value. You'll get few complaints from me right now :)
