    The most important thing for me is and always was that it is simply far more powerful. In the end, graphical and processing power is what defines a generational leap, not extraneous features.

    The circle pad is a big step in the second most important direction, controls.

    Glad you made fhis thread too as i'm sick of hearing “it's just a DSi with 3D effects”.

    So Nintendo in the unlikely event that any of your employees are reading this... don't only talk about the non-glasses 3D and get mentioning the stuff in that list.

    A lot of the things you've listed the 3ds currently can't do!

    The list is good idea.

    But plays movies, um I've got 1 3d clip, im sure everyone else is in the same boat. Netflix will be available in Usa only, so no point in touting it until a euro and Japan version arrives.

    I am however looking forward to 3d video recording, possible web video features if they are released in UK, eshop for games and demos. Online streetpass would be cool, seems most focus have only a couple of streetpass hits, or the ability to use streetpass miis on a daily or weekly basis rather than just once in street quest.

    Has anyone else seen this case at school before? *3 days before 3DS comes out* "It's just another ds, just 3D and more expensive." *Day after the 3DS comes out* "GOD I WILL DO ANYTHING FOR A 3DS!!!!!!"

    P.S. It is so sad how many cases of this I have seen.... I want to smack these people across the face, kick em' in the crouch, tie them to a rock and burn them until they're roasty toasty!!!!!! (The last part made me chuckle....)

    42. It is the successor of the DS series. AKA, a new generation.

    I have a different scenario at school. They say "It's just 3D, besides, you have to wear special glasses to see the effect."

    When I tell my friends that I generally don't turn the 3D on, some ask "Why did you buy it, then?"
    I reply by saying that it's much more than 3D and can do a lot more compared to what the previous DS systems could do.
    This is similar to some calling the DSi a "DS with a camera taped to it."

    46. Extemely portable design
    47. Much more sophisticated Home Screen.
    48. Power Saving options...for the most part, that's great!
    49. Game Notes during gameplay
    50. SD card to actually expand your storage space on your Home Screen.
    51. Augmented Reality Gaming
    52. It's the newest Nintendo console, what are thinking asking that kind-of question? The 3D is an appealing factor, but again, this is Nintendo, they do s*** right! In no way at all has any Nintendo system consisted of one particular improvement.

    Next time someone asks that kind-of question, hand that person your 3DS, after trying it out for more than 3 hours or so. I'd say they'll have their opinion straightened out...

    Wait "Z"...assuming you were refering to the controls, where is this Z button? Unless Z is a variable in which could refer to any number of things...or maybe I'm thinking to far into it, either way, the 3DS is considerably more than just a 3D version of a DS...silly kids...

    ROFL yeah you went to far into it but it's great when something can have more than one meaning don't ya think?

    ANywho yeah i was reffering to the comment right before me who said 'IT's just 3D!' so I said it's not just 3D it's x, y and z! 3 dimensions.

    But hmmm now that you think about it, it's not just 3D, it's not just a handheld, and although it's mainly only video games it's also: <deep breath>

    motion control
    acelerometer
    circle pad
    streetpass
    conectivity
    video
    pictures
    music
    one friend code
    lots of friends
    internet play
    home button
    AR !!! (and soon to be used with HUGE AR cards)
    there's also an IR port that hasn't been said what it's for (maybe WiiU control)
    eShop! (with virtual console, dsi ware and soon to be 3dsware!) (and as of 09/01 free games!!)
    spotpass content (which gives you the best feeling of satisfaction)

    hmmm i know i'm missing something but I love my 3DS!!!!!

    I have read every single post.
    3D is just 3D though. 3DS is awesome, and works. I love it.
    If 3DS did not have 3D, it would not sell at all well what with VITA coming out soon.
    3D is the only thing on top of gamecube graphics in my hand that makes me want a 3DS.


    but just in case you didn't understand... I was just having a laugh, or lul, or whatever.

    Hmph...I laughed...and yes I suppose the factor here that separates this Nintendo device from others to come is mainly then stereoscopic 3D functionality, of course if you really want to get a tad more specific, well...the list. It's there as refrence material for when you feel the need to tell somebody what else the 3DS has to offr other than the 3D.
