Well I went to Bestbuy sunday and picked up my 3DS:D It's amazing so far. I love all the new features, and the 3D is very cool and works better than some people say it does. A lot of people say that your eyes need a few seconds to "focus", well mine sure don't. Once you get in the "right place" to view 3D it instantly becomes 3D, no problems going cross-eyed or anything;) At first I thought my system had a glitch, the symbols on the top screen of the home menu would constantly change the speed at which they move, but then I found out that it speeds up when it detects noise. You'd think Nintendo would have told people about that so they wouldn't think there system was messed up:| I don't have any games yet(I'm broke so I'm gonna wait for Mario kart 3DS this holiday season), but the small games already installed are pretty fun. AR games are REALLY cool, but don't have 'that" much to them. 3D is really cool during gameplay, but can be a little blurry when viewing the world around you through the camera(it needs time to "load" the image if you move it around too fast). 3D pictures are really cool, just don't get any objects too close to the system(within one foot). The best way to describe the 3D is to imagine the screen as a box the same width and height of the screen, but with depth. Any object can either go back into the screen or pop-out of the screen. I have noticed that if an object pops "too far out" of the screen it can take time for your eyes to adjust, but that's very rare and the only time I've had problems with it is in AR games when I make a character pop WAY out:lol: The screen "might" make your eyes feel kinda weird if you spend too long on it the first time you try it, but you eventually have no problems with it(atleast if your eyes are like mine:P) The best part is that your sisters can't watch you over your shoulder because the blurred image hurts their eyes:lol: The friend system is very cool, you have your own personla "card" you have your mii on and your favorite game title on. When you register friends you see their "card" in your friend list and it turns orange when there online. The battery lasts long enough for my daily activities very easily, so it's not like you'll see the battery start to drain when the 3D is on. The graphics are excellent, WAY better than the DSi;) I love the home button, it can be really nice when wanting to change applications or exit a game for a second to do something;) I love the 3 slider, but the "depth" of 3D doesn't matter 'that" much. You can barely tell it changes depth, but it still does to an extent.
If anyone has a 3DS I'd love to exchange friend codes:D Mine is 3093-7076-1108.
BTW, did anyone see the latest news article on gamespots home page, the error messages that people are getting:? I don't have any problems with mine, nor do most people, but it's kinda scary. I'm glad I have a 90 day warranty on it.
