My first impression is that it is frustrating because lots of stuff is not working. But slowly stuff is starting to work, this is to be expected. A couple of things that are bothering me is there's no podcast gamplay and lots of the video's just won't play. I hope these problems get fixed soon, with out hearing and seeing some of the people that work here the site feels very sterile.
For me there are no games I want for the 3ds, so why pay $250+tax to play ds games? Plus I absolutly love the bigger screens on my dsi xl, so I am waiting to see if nintendo will releases a 3ds xl. Here's my advice, hardware doesn't matter as much as the games do. Don't waste your money just because its popular and new. Buy it if it lets you play the games you want to play.The less you spend on hardware the more you can spend on games.
