    Are you getting the 3DS because it's the new handheld, because of the 3D effect, because of the good graphics, or some other reason?

    Dannyboy, nice job on your 100th post! I am getting it because of the capabilities they have for making good quality games (like this video of Resident Evil) compared to this, which has the best graphics on the DS that I've seen (but the cutscenes are just CGI animation). I am probably going to get Paper Mario first.

    I am getting it for the games, the portability, and the graphics. I am also getting it for the 3D effect! I tried out a 3D TV the other day, and it was awesome! I'm hoping the 3DS will be able to produce the effect similar to 3D TVs!

    Yeah, to put it simple: same with me (unlike those people that say everything on it is a gimmick)! Seriously, why do some people think that the Slide Pad is a gimmick, the 3D effect is a gimmick, and the movies are a gimmick? That's just like saying that good graphics is a gimmick (which it could be, depending on the quality of the games), and gameplay is a gimmick! >_< Then we'd just have 8-bit movies with 8-bit sounds, no voices and weird sound effects! But enough with my gimmick rant, I am getting it because of how good quality everything will be!

    My primary reason is the same as for why I buy any videogame hardware, the software. The 3DS has an excellent looking line-up of titles already from both Nintendo and third-party's. The graphics, 3D, motion control etc are good but it' still the software that is the determining factor for me.

    Well said.

    I've just updated this page and it pretty much shows all the reasons why I'm getting a 3DS.

    Professional interest? No, seriously, great range of games, probably the most powerful handheld at the moment, and it's in 3D - what's not to like?

    Really? That's really bad! I accidentally sprayed some of that liquid stuff in the compressed air cans on it, and it made that part really shiny and it looked brand new! o_O

    Wow, I'm assuming was in bad shape after that! About the compressed air stuff, NEVER try handling without proper safety! That stuff boils at -18˚F and can simultaneously burn and freeze you (the spraying it on the screen was just an accident, since I didn't know that it sprays out when it's upside-down)!

    Are you sure you'll be able to finish Resident Evil with 3D? It would be so. . . gross and horrifying, to put it simple!

    Why am I getting the 3DS?

    ...
    ....
    .....


    Because it's the latest generation of Nintendo systems, and it's a place where I'll get to play my precious Nintendo exclusives like Mario and Zelda, that's why. Even if 3D was the only thing it added, it would be an instant sell with me. All the other awesomeness it really turned out to have is really just icing on the cake.
