"It's a huge change, there is potential!"4.5 starson by unitm07
Pros: 3D effect works, Wide upper screen, Tad higher res out of screens, more security features, telescoping stylus, nice UI, Pseudo-Surround sound added
Cons: Short battery life, low res cameras
Summary: So far, it's a really nice upgrade from the regular DSi. Though, admitted that it has a lot of the features that the previous model has. But with all the support its getting from developers, it has so much more it'll be able to do. The 3D works to a T, but some of my friends who have seen it do get eye strain, some real easily, but as soon as you adjust the display, it's easy on them. Only one has actually got a headache from it within 15 minutes of playing with it. The Pseudo-Surround sound also works for it being "pseudo". The AR games are a blast. It's unfortunate though, that nintendo for some reason didn't include Pictochat into it, not even a local version. Battery isn't too bad, though I've only played street fighter 4 on it (still have all of my regular DS games). The Stylus is in a strang position than what I'm used to, but that'll quickly change. The pictures that I take look alright on the 3DS, of course, as soon as I backup the photos on my computer, they do look a little grainy. I love how the memory of the system can finally integrate with the memory of the SD card, helpful in the voice notes app. So, the system is a refresh for some folks, but it's great if you want to something that may pack a punch later on of the system's life.
