So the 3DS is pretty cool. It doesn't seem like the ground-breaking technological achievement that it has been portrayed as at times, but I can see how it could make for some pretty unique game mechanics. The 3D doesn't really add that level of "pop" that I was anticipating, but it does give a much better sense of depth-of-field, especially given the smaller screen real estate of a portable system. It certainly has a lot of promise as a platform, even if we cut the brand on the bottom out of the equation. I'm pretty disappointed with the launch lineup, and equally disappointed that Nintendo felt that it was acceptable to use its position and past success as a means to clear out initial stock without any real software to back the platform. The only thing I was really looking forward to with the 3DS was the opportunity to revisit some of the classics with A WHOLE NEW DIMENSION, but now that I have had the opportunity to experience the technology for a good amount of time, I'm pretty excited to see what new concepts people will be able to do with this platform.
Currently I have SSF4 and Rayman, but I've only really been playing SF so far. I might do an actual review of the 3DS or some games if I have some free time, but that probably won't happen.
