It's called a gyro 'cause you have to gyrate your hips.

The thing is, a gyrometer combined with 3D that only works in a specific position?
C'mon.

Yes, just move your body rather than the 3DS...

That is sill kinda awkward in some situations.

Who said you need to have 3D on? Besides, 3D-Mode tends to lower the quality of the scene, you lose anti-aliasing and the quality of texture filters greatly decreases.

Yeah, I noticed that the 3D mode kinda makes the anti-aliasing terrible.
I just wish that they removed the 3D so they could either lower the price or have better specs.

Remember that Nintendo is aiming towards a more casual audience that are more attracted to innovation over high-specs.

I don't think they would make it that much cheaper without the 3D.

Apparently, but it's the main appeal of the 3DS. :/ Good thing they're going to lower the price to $169 in 3 days. ^-^

Is anyone going to walmart today? I heard the price dropped at walmart earlier (today). I bought the 3DS at it's original price when it first came out, but I was thinking of getting it at Walmart today, and giving it to my older bro since his birthday is coming up soon.

I'm not sure if that Walmart thing is a rumor or not, because the price drop will only be effective August 12...

You sound like someone I know, anyway, the rumors are True, I just bought a second 3ds at walmart for the new price. Before you get mad at me for doing it, I actually did get the my first one when it first came out, this second one is going to be a birthday present for my older brother, of course I'm going to connect it to the internet before the 12th.

Looks like Mario/Zelda games will be coming to non-Nintendo platforms in a matter of time.

The rift highlights the dilemma President Satoru Iwata faces as consumers shun Nintendo devices to play games on iPhones, iPads and Facebook Inc.ís website. The flop of the 3DS debut prompted the company to slash prices 40 percent in Japan starting today, the first time the games developer has resorted to such a move within six months of a productís debut.

I doubt that really. That's not what Nintendo does.

The Dreamcast was never as popular as the PS2, Xbox, or GC; thus they gave up on making consoles and only made software from then on.

Nintendo is still capable of releasing first-party titles under their own consoles, however.

Rather sad considering the Dreamcast and Sega Saturn before it were the superior consoles to their competition. Just developers couldn't be bothered to learn how to utilize the hardware without a 100% documented toolset, I mean... where's the fun in that?

This is just too hilarious, I can't keep myself from posting this here.

Nintendo is going to release an official 3DS add-on...

Can you guess what it is?



No, it's not a third screen. Although I wouldn't be surprised.

Yup. it' is just about the culmination of their toils in one horrendous accessory. I just hope future AAA Titles for the console don't require this terrible accessory.

It may look ugly but i think it will kill 2 birds with one stone as far as I'm concerned, a bigger grip (this will make SSFIV feel a little closer to the console counterpart Im used too), and a second thumbstick!

Except you can use the buttons on the right side of the system on the PSV


Im sure nintendo put the same buttons on the side of the new peripheral, the same thing happened with the wii motion plus add-on.

But jeez, the aesthetics of the thing are seriously botched...

A bigger grip?
You'd be better off wrapping your 3DS with grip tape, it'd certainly look more aesthetically pleasing.
The 3DS should have come with this second thumbstick, except without it protruding an inch out.

I heard that nintendo are planning to release aversion of the 3DS without 3D, and I think I also heard that it would have dual sticks.

for me, this is good news, I really dislike 3D, I hope it dies as quick as it got popular.
