Unveil Nintendo 3DS ... Game Changer

The Nintendo 3DS unveil event happened this morning in NYC and it was an exciting one! The unveil was lead by President of Nintedo Reggie Fils-Aime.

The device will hit retail March 27th at a price point of $249.99 in cosmo black and aqua blue.

Here are some of the features:

*Glasses free (the obvious notable feature) Note - there is a 3D slider button to increase or decrease the 3D capability

*Ability to create your own Mii – like the Wii offers except this time you can actually use the camera to really get a hands on custom avatar and then fine tune from there

*Charging cradle – different than the other DS models

*Street Pass – allows you to swap info (if enabled) with friends and others

*Ability to create 3D photos

*Expandable memory slot (2GB included)

Other notables

*The 3DS has the look and feel as the others in the DS lineup. There are a few added buttons like a home button and an analog button for added movement and the screen is 10% larger.

*Built in pedometer encouraging and tracking movement. Enough steps can earn you coins for bonus content.

*At launch there will be a bunch of games including but not limited to; Zelda (fingers crossed for gold cartridge, Nintendogs and Cats, Steeldiver and Pilotwings Resort (similar in fashion to Wii Sports Resort). 30 titles will be available by June.

Let's just hope all those reports of getting sick and or not recommendations of not using for more than a half hour for kids under six stay at bay.

Can’t really argue with their pitch of it being in a category of its own. Welcome back into the gaming world Nintendo!
