    I wonder why Nintendo didn't realize this would happen with some of the 3DS' commercials.
    Still, just look at it!
    Surely the different look of the outer shell and addition of some new control methods says something about it being more than a regular DS with a 3D screen.

    Cool your jets there, sonny, not everyone loves what everyone else loves. If you want to talk more about OoT and why I seemingly belong in Hell or something because of my attitude towards it, shoot me a PM. Anymore more talk about me and my apparently blasphemous statement will be ignored in this topic.

    But, anyway, Nintendo's ad campaigns lately have been focusing on other things than the 3D component (almost ignoring it, actually). The latest batch of TV ads promote the upcoming software line-up, and most of the online ads I've seen are showing off the horridly bland eShop. Initially, Nintendo was heavily touting the 3D component of the system, but it seems even they have shifted focus. I do think by this point in time people are starting to see that the 3D of the 3DS isn't really a vital part as much as the internals pumping out nice looking, [hopefully] fun games.

    Some of the earlier ads put an emphasis on 3D, and not so much on other things.
    Maybe that's why some people think the only new thing is a 3D screen.

    I also noticed that. The first adverts were all "3d WITHOUT glasses! WITHOUT glasses!"
    The new adverts NEVER even mention the 3D OR the 3D cameras at all.

    I haven't talked to someone in person about the 3DS in a while, so the other two posts I wrote above where based on previous conversations from when the 3DS was launched and the week or so after.
    School is starting soon for me.
    This gives me a chance too ask around again and see what my classmates say about it now compared to before the summertime and will hopefully see a difference.

    don't worry, i know XD
    I'm just a little suprised. I've seen people not be too much of a fan, but never dislike it, but there you go. enjoy Luigi's mansion when you get it though :)

    I remember being in Target, near the 3DS demo station and a kid(10 or 11) was playing the Zelda Demo, his Dad walked up and asked how the 3D effects were. The kid said "There pretty good! Especially the plants!" I kinda walked by and said "Here the 3D isnt turned on" (I slid the slider all the way up) They were really impressed by it! I told them they can adjust the slider for what they want, or even turn 3D off all together. The Father said that they were looking at getting one. I also said its not just a DS with 3D, it has way better graphics. They thanked me as I walked away. It felt pretty good to help them out and was able to maybe encourage them to purchase one then or later on.

    Haha I know right!? I always tend to help people in stores even though I dont work there. People need to understand its basically a portable Gamecube/Wii in there hands with 3D capabilities. It felt really good though, I was thinking Wow, they didnt even have 3D on and they liked it!
