<3 Susan too. The 3DS is either one amazing product or Susan is one amazing actor, <3 either way :)

One thing I'm curious about though, if they have working hardware on display already, why will the ordinary folk have to wait until next year? Why such a long period?

I agree, I got through the water temple without a guide, map, or compass. It's not that bad.

Back on topic, I am interested to try out this 3DS myself.

Well, when asked about the battery life, the guy from Nintendo said they are still tweaking it, so it's not the finished model, just a working one for demonstration. Also, I doubt most of the announced games are finished yet, and they probably want a strong list of launch titles.

Edit: Not to mention, Nintendo has two titles coming this holiday, along with Epic Mickey, a big third party exclusive. Maybe they were afraid an entire new handheld would overshadow their holiday title when it comes to the gift rush?

It really is that damn cool, I swear. You can see me taking a 3D picture of a Nintendo booth person, and it really, genuinely works. Absolutely amazing stuff.

from what I heard the big tweek for it will be making it easier to switch between the items in it, in other words instead of having to constantly go to the start screen to put on the boots or take something off etc etc there will be a quick press button for the boots or something, I think its mostly gonna be the same but the item switching wont be as much of a pain

I can't remember where I read it now, but it has a lot to do with the items... They didn't like how you had to keep pausing and going through the inventory to take them on and off, and they are going to fix that with the touch screen by just having a button right there to take them on or off.

When that woman lifted the 3DS, the visuals looked amazing! Here's hoping Majora's Mask will be remade too. I loved that game. :)

If they just follow their new item select system they made for Wind Waker and Twilight Princess they should be fine. But if their talking about lowwering the difficulty thats fine but they better make it so you can select your difficulty: Easy, Normal, Master Quest.

I frankly cant wait to let the 3D of the 3DS tickle my eyeballs. Nintendo released all their krakens and I'm screaming in glee for each one.

They have to ramp up production so the shelves will be stocked. Apple has the same problem every time Job's lays a golden turd.

I second that. I found it hard, but I liked it that way. Damn.

Regarding the 3DS: Okay you got me, now tell me the price!

Edit: Oh crap. Thread necromancy. Didn't see this thread was that old at all.
