Wow, the new position for the D-Pad sucks!
Expand all images
>> No. 792 [Edit]
It's kinda low, but i'm betting most games will use the analog anyways and i'm betting there will be a setting to use the analog in normal DS games. (sorta like how you could chose the screen on the old DS for GBA games)
>> No. 793 [Edit]
I'm really interested to see if the new DS will be region-locked, since the DSi is region-locked. For example: you can't play the DS version of [email protected] on a non-japanese DSi.

Hm. Well, it doesn't look too bad, it's just that the buttons are so much higher than it.

It probably will, but don't people have patches or something?
>> No. 796 [Edit]
The d-pad probably won't be a problem. I'm not sure what's new about it, though, because it's in the same place it's been since it was revealed back at E3. Capcom said they were giving feedback to Nintendo about the d-pad while developing Super Street Fighter IV 3DS, and it was changed over time.

It actually had a small size increase between the E3 reveal and the October event where the Japanese launch details were announced.
>> No. 797 [Edit]
>>796
I remember Nintendo saying they would be improving the design until the launch date because honestly that design is really unappealing. Unless they're pulling that "release new refined and shinier model in 6 months" again.

This looks exactly like the one shown at E3.

Seems like 3DS is going to be region-locked. Not really that surprising, given DSi was, but it still sucks. Can only hope that someone will crack it eventually.

Well, this seems like the definitive design. I'm rather disappointed I must say.

Also, the battery should only last 3-5 hours they said.
>> No. 930 [Edit]
>>928
The battery length is questionable. Nintendo tends to be very conservative with their estimated battery ranges, and the 3-5 figure wasn't specific at all, though it likely means at max brightness + wi-fi/spot pass whatever stuff enabled.

I put down my preorder today at Toys-R-Us. I'm somewhere around #3-#5 in the system for preorders, so I think I'm guaranteed a launch unit. If not, I'll just camp out for one of the midnight launchs.
>> No. 931 [Edit]
>>910
This is very disappointing.

But I wanted to wait a year or so anyway. When the DS came out I thought it would get tons of visual novels simply because the design seemed to be perfect for it. But it turned out that the PSP would became the portable console of your choice in regards of VN.

There something about it sitting the bed and reading some VN before sleeping. So, I'll wait how the PSP2 will turning out.
>> No. 941 [Edit]
I'm betting the 3-5 hour battery life is with max brightness, wi-fi, and making use of the 3D cameras.

Give it like 4 months and there'll be a new version with a better battery anyways.

I don't think Nintendo have ever put a better battery in any of their handheld redesigns. Sans GBA SP, which was their first rechargeable battery, I believe.

I'm surprised NA is getting it last. Going to be a long two months wait, but if Pilotwings and Steel Diver are at launch, it'll be worth it.

I have found quite a few interesting games on the Wii and DS. Actually, the DS is the only console I play besides the PC. Not our fault you only see the casual games or only like hardcore HD games for hardcore HD gamers such as yourself.

Looks like Nintendo of America is enforcing some policy where every game must have this shitty 3D warning on the front of the box. Now people are really going to bitch about how viewing 3D at young ages is potentially harmful. The Steel Diver boxart is nice, but the 3D warning label is an eyesore.

http://www.wired.com/gamelife/2011/02/nintendo-3ds-ar-games/

Nintendo really needs to make some sort of picture/video sharing site like they did with Flipnote Studio for that Graffiti program. You could access the site from your DS and download (if it even supports that) 3D pictures or videos straight to your DS. At least, in theory.

Surechigai Densetsu (StreetPass Legend) footage finally shown. The way it works is you hire heroes using the game coins you earn through the 3DS's pedomete and then send them to save the captured king (which is one of your Miis, I believe).

There are different levels of heroes, up to 3, presumably, and they have different attacks. The battle screen lets you choose three options (maybe more): Magic, Attack (Sword), and Leave. There were two magic options. The first is called "Black Magic" and would've made the enemy fall asleep, and the second (the one shown in the battle with two ghosts) is called "Blue Magic" and is a water attack. The sword does three consecutive attacks, and leaving lets you leave the battle and fight the enemy later.

It looks like the heroes are fickle and will just up and leave when they want, too. The text shown when the one leaves after the water attack is "The wandering hero was tired and left".

The treasure box at the end of the first battle with the Mario hat can be used to dress up your own Miis with.

This is just a rumor and more than likely completely false. Nintendo isn't going to ruin the trade-in business and have retailers abandon them. In addition to that, console manufacturers have yet to brick any of their systems intentionally, because it borders on illegality and would cause tons of negative press.

you know companies like Nintendo don't make money off resales of used systems right? that all goes to gamestop or whenever you sell it to.
Nintendo makes money from selling new systems, as such, it only makes sense they would have some small writing on a user manual stating that piracy and other illegal use of the system can void not only a warranty, but a user agreement, both of which people never bother to read and always ignore.
This would mean, you'd have to buy another 3ds, and give Nintendo more money.
>> No. 1737 [Edit]
>>1734
You're missing the point. This was a baseless fear being thrown around by a single Japanese retailer stating that Nintendo will brick 3DS's if someone's 3DS shows that the user has used a device that can enable piracy in the gamelog that the 3DS features. Any console manufacturer can brick your console if they so choose to if they are aware that your console is playing pirated games. They don't, though, and the most that happens is that your console will banned from accessing online play. Retailers wouldn't stock the device if Nintendo ever was intentionally bricking consoles, because it would ruin any chances of having those consoles being traded-in.

Plus it's near illegal, for the very reason you pointed out. That is, if you intentionally damage the device so that is unusable in order to force the user to buy a new one.

I really do not understand Nintendos approach on the 3DS, mobile gaming was already huge(especially in Japan)in 2005 when the DS came out.Why would I pay 7 euro for a NESgame crippled with DRM?
>> No. 4245 [Edit]

Truth to be told I wouldn't mind paying that for a good NES game. Actually, I'd be willing to pay more for an average NES game than for an average game that comes out nowadays. But that's kinda besides the point I guess.

heh, seems yet another bloody slightly different variation of the DS will be coming out soon.
I almost feel sorry for Nintendo's user base, but don't, becuase they bring this onto themselves, it's their own fault letting Nintendo sucker them time and time again, then ask for more.
At this rate, common vegetables will have longer shelf lives then Nintendo's consoles.
But at least Nintendo is admitting their mistake with this whole 3D crap.
Microsoft is still out there lying about how successful kinect is, just like Sony is still pushing that wii ripoff.

Nintendo is on thin enough ice as it is, I doubt they will piss off their core audience even more by revising the 3DS this early.

>I doubt they will piss off their core audience even more
That's the thing, they don't care.
Nintendo can put out a new DS every 6 months and their audience would still line up for the new version.
But one does have to give that audience some credit in spite of their willingness to pay over and over for the same exact Mario game re-released on different consoles, they're not complete retards, Nintendo knows this.
It's why they aren't scraping 3D completely, just "downplaying it", if they took 3D out of the 3DS, some Nintendo fan boys might realise it would be just the same system as the DSi ...which was practically the same console as the DS light, with a few gizmo's added.

One has to remember here, Microsoft and Sony make money off the games, Unlike them, Nintendo makes money off their system sales.
so it's not crazy to think they'd want to keep putting out new versions of the system as they market it as something new.

>New DS every 6 months
That is a bit absurd. There were what, 4 in 6-7 years? How many did the PSP have again? 1000 + 2000+ 3000 + that PSPGO abomination. The wii has never had a revision, just colour changes, while the PS3 and 360 have slim editions.

>Downplaying 3D
I don't think anyone cares about 3D, but having a new analog stick/circle pad would mean that people who own the single pad would not be able to play the games. Nintendo would not survive that, no way in hell.

>Nintendo makes money off their system sales.
Source? I was under the impression that they made money off their Mario and Pokemon games, both series sharing spot #1 and #2 for most profitable franchises of all time respectively.

Hell the DSi was a fucking dumb idea, but that was so many years after the original DS and included so few games that I don't think anyone even cared. Nintendo can't do digital distro and they know it.

Anyway, sorry if I sounded like a dick but you shouldn't hate on Nintendo for made up stuff. You have plenty more things to hate them for, like birthing motion controls and creating the most popular console of all time that is sustained by shovelware.

>the most popular console of all time

I thought PS2 was Sony's console?

But yeah, Nintendo isn't stupid enough to actually change the console to the point where older models won't be able to play new games. They might release a new version of their consoles every month but it's not like anybody forces you to buy all of them, most of the changes are cosmetic, not much different from releasing different colors of their consoles. I bought DS just a few months after it was released and I'm still using that unit.

sony didn't really market 3000 as being a completely different system, it still has the same name, only tech nerds can tell the difference between 2000 and 3000, you can't even tell the difference between 3000 and 2000 from the outside, that's not even their official names, that number comes from a product code you have to open up the system to see.
but yeah, '2000' as it were, was their slim, which is what they called it, psp slim.
I'm sure if we busted open a few DS from over the years, we'd find some different product numbers in there also, upping the about of versions.
heck, if you want to play it like that, we could technically count every color each of the systems as being different versions.
Every system, portable or not, gets a slim version after a few years, but they still remain able to play the same games.
first gen psp games work with slim and the other way around.
Correctly me if I'm wrong here, but are there not games labeled as only working on dsi? would 3DS games work on a original DS?
But you're completely right about the pspgo, that peace of shit was a joke.
I know they wanted to cut down on piracy, which practically killed the psp in America, but making it incompatible with umd games was bs. you shouldn't have to rebuy the game you already bought.
can't play old psp games on a go, although you play them the other way around, kind of strange...
lucky though, they seem to have 'downplayed' the pspgo, which can be picked up fairly cheap now since no one wants that useless peace of junk, and they're still selling umd games in stores, all be it not many, becuase psp has no games lol.

when it comes down to it, we've got pspfat (original), psp slim, and pspgo (full of fail!).
in the other side of the ring, we've got DS (original) DSlight (their slim version) DSI (I dunno lolmo) 3DS (their failure like pspgo) and whatever it is they might be coming out with soon.
Putting it like that, I can see now the DS only has one more version over the psp, so I guess they're both a much of crap!

It's a very well known fact that Nintendo is selling systems for a profit, how can you think that's not true?
Just look at how much the wii costs, they've taken what, ten years to cut the price by $50 on hard wear that was outdated the day the thing came out?
Compare that to a system like ps3, which was sold at a lose at $600 (at the time, blu ray players cost $1,000+) now they're $250, that's $100 more then the current wii price, $50 more then the wii's original price.
This is because electronics fall in value as they age of course.
My point being, do you really think it costs $150 or more for them to make a wii today?

First time I heard about it. I might be misinformed, though.

Would Vita games work on PSP?

Also I love how you say that you could technically count even different colors and then proceed to count redesings
either way.

>>4188

That's a stupid way to measure popularity. Let's just go with units sold and in this regards PS2 has the upper hand.

>My point being, do you really think it costs $150 or more for them to make a wii today?

Sure it doesn't. Also, it doesn't change the fact that they make shittons of money selling new (and old, not that one could tell the difference) Pokemon/Mario games.

All the DSi added was a camera and an online store for small games/apps. It wasn't really a revision as all the actual games were still playable on the DS, it wasn't a revision of hardware mostly just a software thing.

The 3DS is the new gen of nintendo handheld. The DSi is to the DS as the 32x was the the mega drive.

MH on 3DS doesn't support online because the cradle blocks the wireless adapter.

Also Famitsu mentioned ONLY local multiplayer.

In a fucking 14 page long preview not even a single word about online.

Why?
Simple.
Because it doesn't support online.

And why do you think Japan is throwing a fit and laughing at MH Tri G?

Everyone already assumed it has no online.

Also Famitsu is teasing super-duper-turbo big reveal in next issue for Vita.

They are saying "THAT GAME" is going to be revealed.

Probably new MH.

And yes, this is a first party add-on by Nintendo. God, they are so fucked.

I have no idea what he means. The wireless on/off switch is covered, yes, but that won't affect whether you're connected online or not. It also covers the IR port, which is how the attachment is recognized by the 3DS, presumably.

It's too early to say whether Tri G will have online or not. In fact, it would be strange, given Capcom could charge a fee to play like they always have in Japan, and just about every 3DS game they've released already supports online play. The only reason why I could think they wouldn't support online is if they believe the server costs and maintenance would outweigh the number of people that paid for the service. Monster Hunter is popular in Japan for the local multiplayer, not online. It's also possible the Japanese release won't have online support, but the western one will, as Tatsunoko vs. Capcom did on Wii.

Also, the attachment isn't required to play Tri G, and Capcom have added the ability to control the camera via a d-pad on the 3DS touchscreen, as well as auto-facing monsters if you press another button also on the touchscreen. The scan illustrates this.

Standard canned response by western divisions. It just means they haven't announced it at this time, nothing to worry about yet, and the slidepad attachment has already been confirmed for release in Europe.

>A Nintendo UK spokesperson told us: "We can confirm that Nintendo does plan to release the attachment but that any further announcements on the attachment will be made at some later time by Nintendo."

Don't bother with the DSi if you are going to pirate games, just use a cheap DS lite and use the flashcart on that.

DSiXL is $170, regular DSi is $150. Refer to these two links to see which flashcarts are still supported by DSi XL and 3DS. The DSi XL list might be outdated, but the 3DS list should be up to date.

Here's a mockup from GAF. It's ugly, but it's not the monstrosity some were making it out to be, and it certainly looks comfortable. The press pictures Nintendo released were really unflattering. Also, Resident Evil: Revelations, Metal Gear Solid : Snake Eater 3D, Ace Combat 3D, Shin Sangoku Musou Versus, and Kingdom Hearts 3D are all going to support the addon.

Will buy when it's bundled next year with Monster Hunter Tri G for $50.

Now that the 3DS has a couple of games I'm interested in I decided to look into it and surprise surprise, Japan gets all the cool things while NA/Europe can only get jealous.

And when I say 'can only get jealous' I mean exactly that. Hard to believe it's actually region locked. Not being able to buy stuff at your local game store is bad enough but not being able to even import them (at a damn hefty price, too) is just ridiculous (of course you can technically import them but from my perspective there's no point in doing that).
