      The newest handheld gaming console that Nintendo has put on the table. The Nintendo 3DS. The successor to the widely popular Nintendo DS has alot more features than it’s predecessor.

      It features two cameras on the back of the console that let you shoot in 3D straight to the device. Imagine capturing photos of your friends and yourself in 3D! Obviously a very nifty feature.

      Using technology never before seen on a console it’s got a 3D screen that lets you enjoy 3D games and movies without having to wear glasses. I sometimes actually almost dropped the 3DS in surprise while playing Pilot Wings. Just can’t wait too get the Street

      Fighter IV 3DS version to see Hadoukens in 3D. The downside to this is it takes time for you to get used to it. My eyes started to strain after the first 2 hours of gameplay and I had to turn off the 3D mode just to let my eyes rest.

      There’s a new Circle Pad, located above the + Control Pad, Nintendo 3DS offers full analog control in 3D game worlds. Which makes things easier when you’re playing adventure or RPG games since the Cross D-bad kinda hurts your fingers after a while.

      It’s got a Motion Sensor and Gyro Sensor so you can move the handheld console to control ...

      • your games beyond just pressing buttons. Kind of like the PS3’s Six-Axis controller, you can tilt your 3DS around for more interactive gameplay.

        It has backwards compatible with your old Nintendo DS games. Though the initial loading time is significantly slower you will still be able to play your beloved Pokemon Games on the 3DS with full functionality.

        Nintendo 3DS dimensions

        Height: 2.9 inches (73mm)

        Width: 5.3 inches (134mm)

        Depth: 0.8 inches (20mm)

        Weight: 8 ounces (226g)

        Though with all the features of the 3DS the significant backdraw is the battery life. With 3D more turned on you only have roughly 2-3 hours of play time which is of course(if you’re a

        hardcore gamer like me) severely lacking.

        The verdict: Even with the short battery life(you have to hope for a third-party company who will make an actual battery upgrade, the 3DS is a really good buy. That is if it were around $150-$200. At $249.99 the battery kills it. But then again, playing games like Street Fighter IV and Tom Clancy’s Splinter Cell 3D in actual 3D does seem very appealing. If you’re a practical hardcore gamer, I’d wait for either Nintendo to do something about the battery life or for a third-party battery pack before buying one. Otherwise go out and get yourself a new 3DS which is being launched as we speak.
