SURPRISE INDEAD, HOPE YOU WEREN’T WAITING ON THE PERFECT DS? BECAUSE WE SURE DIDN’T GET IT. THIS STRANGE ALMOST DOOR JAMB LOOKING THING IS WHAT WE GOT FOR CHRISTMAS FROM NINTENDO, AND IT CAN’T HELP BUT STRIKE ONE AS ODD. SO LETS TAKE A GOOD LONG LOOK AT IT AND SEE WHAT WE GOT.
ANYTHING NEW INSIDE?
Sadly the answer here is no.
Nintendo basically made a 3DS without the 3D, so I guess the naming scheme could use a little more creativity. Moving on from there it gets even weirder, it can still take 3D pictures, but you can’t actually view them. Also jump on over to the official site and you will be greeted by its cheaper, and no real details from there.
So it’s a door jamb, but it plays games?
Play 3DS or DS titles and take pictures including 3D pictures, just there is no 3D available to view them. Wait what? All the specs are the same too? Yes from ram to screen resolution its the same. Just no 3D, no clam shell, and $40 cheaper.
Being cheaper doesn’t help that there is no real screen protection, and it’s about as hideous as it gets. Face it you get a DSI or 3DS for gaming and web browsing and all the quirky add ons, while being able to fold it up into sleep mode and take it on the go. Where as with this thing I cant help but worry will it even fit in anything other than a back pack.
OKAY SO WHATS THE POINT IN IT?
I hate to say it but I get why they came out with it, doesn’t help me like it any better though.
Nintendo needs Pokémon to sell, and it will as always, but they needed a cheaper system that lacked the (inappropriate for children 3D) to push it in more people’s budgets.
Yep its a money thing.
Not meant to stick around or even be remembered!
Just for money.
SO IS IT A SCAM AND HOW COULD HAVE NINTENDO DONE BETTER?
This would have been better to me!
If Nintendo did this design and selling point, well it would have done wonders by comparison. The difference would be legit new idea, over a quick money gimmick. I would go on about the clamshell design should have stayed but that’s a 50 – 50, but to make a tablet design without a tablet design is what still gets to me. I wish it would have been clam shell or all one screen. Yet they didn’t so it does in fact feel like a scam!
But that’s the smaller point, what I really wished they did was this.
Lets face it we ALL wanted this instead.
If Nintendo made something more like this and finally upgraded the cameras (and maybe a few other specs), well maybe my Christmas list would have one more thing on it. Truth is we all wanted an analog stick on the DS, and when the 3DS did it we all rejoiced. Soon after we realized its awkward without a second one and so we waited for it, and still we wait.
So I guess in the end the biggest gripe some Nintendo and DS fans will have is that Nintendo didn’t listen to us very well.
But in the end thanks to its October 12th release being the same with Pokémon X and Y, Nintendo found a way to push these titles in far more homes. So there for this console will be a success.
HERE HOPING WE GET A PROPER UPGRADE NEXT GO ROUND, BUT TILL THAN THIS IS WHAT WE GOT.
