It wouldn't be a rehash, but to that end it probably won't happen. They're pushing out their online TCG game, so there's no reason to make it. However, I hope it comes out for Virtual Console.

Pokemon Snap is a gimme. It has to come out, it will sell the gyroscope. There are so many more pokemon to make use of. It's perfect.

I just realised something...

I have still NOT seen a single person playing 3DS in my local area. There had been plenty of DSi, and even recently the large versions. But I have yet to see an actual 3DS being played, anywhere.

Not a good sign, surely.

Yeah, and I really hope Nintendo starts making things with online play instead of forcing us to local... because star fox? really? that's just lame, nobody around me even has a 3ds for the download play

I've never seen anyone play a DS or anything above that in my local area.

Not a good sign at all.
...For my social life.

That's a good point, sir. I did have one random StreetPass one day, but out and about I've seen a DSi XL and a few DS Lites being played, but no 3DS. My close friends all have them, but that's something I never thought of.

I have StreetPass on around the city centre, and i easily get over 15, sometimes 20. It's pretty popular here, and i hear bigger in London.

& i've spent too much time revisiting Metroid.

I've tried playing Metroid, but it's crashed on me 2-3 times now, even after re-downloading. Hope it gets fixed with that update...


I also want them to change them to widescreen. Those 2 bars on the sides of the top screen bug me enough as it is with DS games~ > 3 <

With DS games, you can hold Start and Select while selecting it on the menu, and you'll have it in widescreen. Tried this with the new Ambassador VC titles and it didn't work.

Also, widescreen DS games are blurrier than the scaled version, obviously. Nothing to complain about though.

How far into the game does it crash on you?

Nintendo's 3DS Slide Pad is Like a Cradle



Quote:
Based off initial descriptions, Nintendo's new slide pad attachment for the 3DS appeared to be a little device that sticks off one side of the system. This is incorrect. Images from Weekly Famitsu, which got the scoop on the item, show that the device looks more like a cradle.

Officially the "Kakuchou Slide Pad," or "Expansion Slide Pad," the 3DS sits inside the cradle. Everything lines up so that the second slide pad is to the immediate right of the four face buttons. The slide pad itself appears to be smaller than the system's main slide pad.

It's unclear if Nintendo made the device specifically for Monster Hunter 3G, but the device is introduced in Famitsu's reveal article on the new 3DS Monster Hunter game.

Famitsu interviewed Monster Hunter series supervisor Ryozo Tsujimoto about MHP3G and the slide pad expansion. The device provides a good grip on the system, said Tsujimoto. He jokingly referred to the expansion as a "secret weapon" which will allow you to play the game with the same feeling as playing Monster Hunter 3 on Wii.

Monster Hunter 3G is scheduled for release at the end of the year and will go playable at the Tokyo Game Show next week. The slide pad expansion is currently without a release date
Lord....

I suddenly have no doubt that they're going to release a new system with second analog stick and name it either 3DL (Less) or 3DN (None).

And what will happen to the these so called Ambassador?



Edit: Looks ugly as hell btw

Even if a new system comes out, it will still be 3DS. They'll probably add a new portion to it though, like 3DS+.

A new little attachment is supposed to relate to the Ambassadors... how?
They're the ones that got the 3DS early, kind of as an apology for the price drop.

Well if it adds in extra battery time, hell yeah!
I wonder how it works, does it use SDIO, bluetooth, IR, or does the PSU port actually allow data transfer.
Chances are that it will be bundled with Monster Hunter 3G/TriG

Nintendo would release a new system with 2nd analog stick just a few months after 3ds. Ambassador or should I said early adaptor would be screwed with 3ds + gundam size peripheral. Not to mention that they need to paid again for it ($10 cost? I'm calling it bs). If the rumour is true, Nintendo would ditch the 3d capabilities.

So where is the plus in all that?

How Nintendo going to compensate all these so called ambassador/ early adaptor they screwed over?

and do you really believed these 20 games they're offering really worth $80 ?

I'd like to remind everyone of how every Nintendo handheld has upgraded itself throughout the years. Yes, each handheld goes through about 3-5 upgrades. However, this does not happen immediately- it's spaced out so that all consumers don't feel cheated.

The next 3DS update won't arrive until Spring next year at the very earliest. By that time, very few will even care about all this "Ambassador" and "Dual Circle Pads" triviality. Personally, I don't even care right now. The 3DS works well and the Ambassador program was just a nice way for Nintendo to give back. Most companies wouldn't even consider such a program, so does it really matter how much the games are valued? We're not even getting 20 budget titles.

Buy a console from Microsoft or Sony and see if they give back like Nintendo did. We have no right to hate on what's given to us for free.

Most people consider those who bough the original 1st gen DS to be stuck with an ugly piece of plastic after the re-design.

This is not news. You can't expect any electrical hardware to stay up to date forever. My laptop was brand new Jan 2010, but it now can't run ANY new PC games. This is just a fact of life.

The only question is are you willing to wait for the upgrade. And how long are you willing to wait; because there is no point waiting for the next improvement if you want to play games today.

The problem with 3DS of course, is that there is a lack of "must have" titles that made more people willing to make the leap. People ARE waiting for the next hardware upgrade because there isn't anything they desperately want to play. And if their desired game is, say, two years away from release, then they might as well wait for those two years before buying a 3DS. By then, the old 3DS would be much cheaper and the next upgrade would be available. And they would not miss any game time at all either.

While I mostly agree with your assessment, I disagree that people will waiting that long. With the Monster Hunter announcement, the 3DS now has a killer Winter 2011 lineup in Japan that also includes Mario Kart, Inazuma Eleven, and Super Mario that's going to eclipse anything else that comes out on other platforms, Vita included.

I don't see that attachment as a precursor to the 3DS's next revision (although I do believe that dual sticks will be on that), but rather as a mere tool to encourage users to switch over to the 3DS without having to sacrifice much control. Since it's an optional add-on for the device, I doubt that it's going to be really heavily pushed.

Cannot remember but it took quite a while until they decided to release a new remote revision with build in motion plus.
I'm certain that nintendo will not release a new 3ds anytime soon, mainly because of technology costs and size.
