3DSi prediction of hardware

I am obsessed with new hardware, and I love to brainstorm what a new console could look like. So I downloaded a 3D modeling software and I'm working on a model of what I think the upgraded 3DS should look like. Lets get some things out of the way first...

1. The next 3DS model may or may not be close to being announced. The DS lite was released only a year after the DS phat only because the huge demand for the console cleared out the units that Nintendo was shipping. The 3DS sales haven't come close to overwhelming and Nintendo needs to sell these systems before they even think about making another.

2. It will be a substantial redesign. It's safe to assume the new model will include the new control methods added by the extension circle pad released in Japan and soon in the US. These are 2 more shoulder buttons (ZR and ZL) and a second analog stick. It is worth noting that the PS Vita only has one set of shoulder buttons. Once these controls are implemented on the system without an addon, I feel that developers will be more likely to use them. It will have to stay as a clamshell design to keep the 3D screen safe from scratches that could ruin the effect.

3. It is possible that multiple models will be tailored to different users. On model could trade off the 3D for a larger screen, better cameras, and more battery life. For people who have no intrest in 3D. The original model could still be sold as a core model for much cheaper.

Been a While...

I haven't really been posting often. Heres what games i've been playing.

inFamous 2: highy reccomend, great story, better graphics, awesome new powers, this game is the sequel everyone wanted. Alot of gameplay to be had playing through the game as good and evil and in the level creator.

LIMBO: reccomend, a very atmospheric game, the game plays well and though the platforming isnt hard the puzzels can leave you not knowing what to do. all around a fun, cheap, downloadable game.

Oblivion: highly reccomend, ive had it for two years and im still playing it religously. cant wait for skyrim, buy this game for a real bang for your buck. 300+ hours of gameplay

Battlefield BC2: somewhat reccomend, its a great online shooter but much slower pace then COD. If your a COD fan and love the high intensity fights in close quarters, dont play battlefield. If your new to the online fps genre i wouldnt reccomend it either. try battlefield heroes first, then buy if you like it. It didnt have enough unlocks or ranks to keep me intrested.

Metroid Prime Trilogy: buy!!!! 3 of the best games on the gamecube and wii put together in a package with upgraded controles. Easily 150+ hours of entertainment. I've had it for a while but i'm replaying metroid prime.

Looking forward to:

buying a 3DS when the price drops and playing OoT3D Star Fox 64 3D and Mario Kart 7.
