Real 3D Graphics. No Glasses Needed.

Introducing the Nintendo 3DS system. Experience incredible gameplay featuring real 3D graphics, with no need for special glasses. Nintendo 3DS is a breakthrough in portable entertainment, a truly cutting-edge piece of hardware. It has to be seen to be believed.


Product Features

Nintendo 3DS

3D Screen
The Nintendo 3DS system opens up a whole new world of eye-popping gameplay possibilities. The stereoscopic 3D display of the upper screen gives objects within the game world a feeling of space and depth that extends far into the back of the screen. It becomes easier to see the position of characters and obstacles in the world, making many game experiences even more intuitive for all types of players.

Nintendo 3DS

3D Depth Slider
A built-in 3D Depth Slider allows you to immediately adjust the intensity of the 3D settings on the Nintendo 3DS system to your liking. The 3D effect can also be turned down completely—all Nintendo 3DS games and applications can be played in 2D, and look better than any Nintendo handheld before it.

Nintendo 3DS

Motion Sensor and Gyro Sensor
Portable play control reaches a new level with these amazing features, allowing for new and unique gameplay mechanics. A built-in motion sensor and gyro sensor can react to the motion and tilt of the system, so whether players are twisting their systems side to side or moving them up and down, their motion-compatible Nintendo 3DS games respond instantly.

Nintendo 3DS

Two Screens
Game graphics have never looked better on a Nintendo handheld system, thanks to the two screens of the Nintendo 3DS system.
A widescreen display on the top screen shows 800x240 pixel resolution, allocating 400 pixels for each eye to create the 3D effect.
The bottom LCD touchscreen operates at a resolution of 320x240—with both screens capable of displaying a brilliant 16.77 million colors.

Nintendo 3DS

Analog Control
With the Circle Pad, located above the + Control Pad, Nintendo 3DS offers full analog control in 3D game worlds. Combined with the touchscreen, traditional buttons, camera and microphone input, and advanced motion control of the motion sensor and gyro sensor, the potential is extraordinary.

3D Camera
The Nintendo 3DS system uses its two outer cameras to see the world in 3D, much like the human eye. This allows for the creation of 3D photos, 3D video, and even 3D stop-motion animations, that make for an eye-popping addition to your next photo op.

Nintendo 3DS
Nintendo 3DS

All Nintendo 3DS systems come with a stylus to allow for precise touch controls on the bottom screen. The original Nintendo 3DS comes with an adjustable stylus that can be shortened or lengthened to your liking, while the Nintendo 3DS XL comes with a comfortable, full-sized stylus.

Nintendo 3DS

SD Memory Card Included
Every Nintendo 3DS system comes packed with a SD memory card*. You can use this SD memory card to store your 3D photos, and sound recordings created on the Nintendo 3DS system, and music** from your PC. You can also use it to store games downloaded from the Nintendo eShop. The Nintendo 3DS system has SDHC card compatibility to increase your storage space even further.
* Nintendo 3DS systems come with a 2GB SD memory card and Nintendo 3DS XL systems come with a 4GB SD memory card.
** Nintendo 3DS is compatible with MP3 and AAC file formats.

Nintendo 3DS

Backwards Compatibility
Almost all existing Nintendo DS and Nintendo DSi games can be played on a Nintendo 3DS system in 2D. With backwards compatibility, your existing portable games look and play just as well*.
* Nintendo DS and Nintendo DSi games will be displayed in 2D graphics. Select Nintendo DS games that use accessories in the Game Boy™ Advance slot of the Nintendo DS system are not compatible with the Nintendo 3DS system.

5 out of 5 eggsVery happy with my purchase

Pros: Lovely finish, the color is just as it's labeled.

Everything came as advertises, no pieces were missing and it was in perfect condition.

Price point was very good and honestly it was worth buying through a reputable place like Newegg rather than shelling out more money at a local game store for the conveniance of getting it immediately.

Cons: I never make use of the 3D feature since it's fairly harsh on my eyes but this isn't enough to take away an egg this is personal preference.

5 out of 5 eggsNewegg never disappoints me

Cons: None

5 out of 5 eggsLoving it

Pros: Very advanced compared to previous models of the Nintendo handheld devices.

Stays connected to Wi-Fi even in sleep mode

Gives the heads up that the 3-D feature can be quit hazardous to certain people. (Heed this warning)

Lastly the newer look makes it look more sleek

Cons: The 3-D feature of this can really hurt your eyes if you are looking at it for too long. I don't recommend using this 3-D feature if you get headache's easily.

4 out of 5 eggsAll as expected

Pros: Finally a color that my wife can live with.

Super Mario 3D Land is awesome, and pretty much one of the few reasons I'd consider getting one for myself.

Cheap entertainment for the retro gaming adults and goofy game loving kids in the family.

Tons of available accessories.

A good number of great games are available right now. Xmas is easy this year.

Cons: Power socket is a little loose. This is possibly to alleviate damage from clumsy individuals tripping on the power cord. It clicks in, but has a bit of wiggle, almost too much in my opinion. I'll keep an eye on it.

No included USB charging/transfer cable (to charge from a JuiceBox or USB car charger). This would also be helpful to manage data on the 3DS internal storage as well as the SD card without having to either remove the SD card, or use other means to gain access to the internal storage (game saves). Yeah, I know, piracy concerns... USB charge cables can be found (I picked one up for ~$8.00 elsewhere) and a card reader is cheap (I payed ~$2.00 for mine), but it's just more junk on the desk/in drawers.

I'm still not convinced that 3D ANYTHING is more than a gimmick at the moment. It looks OK in some games, in others it's just irritating.

Other Thoughts: Jump on this if you are a retro fan, have kids, or just need to kill some time on business trips (and a certain "angry fowl" game on your phone just isn't cutting it for the 10,000,000th time).

For the money, you can't go wrong with the entertainment value for the whole family. The kids love it (Pokemon White and Black), the wife loves it (Mario everything), and I find it to be acceptable (I'll play whatever is in reach).

Last but not least; find a good case for your 3DS. I don't believe the finish on the top of the case will last long if you have younger kids (or a clumsy spouse).
