Advantages: good graphics and 3d
Disadvantages: not many 3d games at the moment and can hurt your eyes
when i heard that Nintendo were bringing out their very first 3D gaming console i said "no way are they doing that!" i thought to myself that surely a handheld gaming device with a 3D capability surly they cant of done that already since it was only about 6 months ago that they had brought out the DsXL, so as soon as i got home that night i rushed upstairs onto my laptop and searched for this unique new and innovative console and sure enough there it was NINTENDO- due to bring out first ever handheld 3d console, and i will tell you the truth i was absolutely gobsmacked especially when i saw the price how much were they charging for this surly it would be about 500 pounds? no? 400? no? Its how much!! that right Nintendo were only charging 200 pounds for the new and unique product, so of course i had to go out a buy one and so here's the verdict.
A week into buying the 3ds i started to find it a bit tiresome i could only play on it for a certain amount of time otherwise i would get bad migraines and then of course there was the fact that it had just been released so therefore there was only about 4 3d games currently released for this console and while these games were out there and could be show in 3d unfortunately any other 2d games could not be played on the console in 3d so in my eyes it was just like any other ds apart from it had the capability to play some 3d mini games and for about the first 4 months of the release there wasn't even an app store for this console so you couldn't even download extra mini games to play and because of it being brand new not many people had it so the street pass functions on the console were pretty rubbish and therefore the console started to get used less and less until eventually it just sat there gathering dust in the corner of the room. So what happened later....
eventually about 8 months down the line i decided i would take it away on holiday with me when i did this the experience of this console had completely changed the street pass functions were now working much much better and the store was now open so i could download some more 3d mini games. i also went into game and some other game shops while i was away and found to my delight that there was now about 16 3d games out and even more due to be released and on top of all this extra accessories and that sort of stuff for the console was now out and i loved it....
since then i have never put it down and also after a little while 2-3 weeks the headaches started to stop and i really started to use it i took it everywhere and used it constantly for taking photos and storing images on here. this console turned out to be a really good spend and if you go to the shops today you will get amazing graphics in 3d mini games front and back camera with editing software a music player and other applications to download onto the device and all this will cost you roughly £140.00 (price taken from Tesco website)
so all in all it turned out to be a good purchase however there are and will be much much better handheld gaming consoles out there to use and hopefully Nintendo will find a way like they always do to improve their product so everyone can make the most out of it. Out of ten i would give this a rating of 7 out of ten.
Summary: pretty nifty
