I absolutely HATE the DS, because I dislike side-scrolling games :/

But this hatred is not the same for the 3DS :)

Opinions?

The DS can handle 3D games you know, just throwing that out there. ;)

LOL @ Homer ^

I know that you can't really expect much from a handheld system, but it had like really bad graphics too. I mean, why couldn't the DS just had awesome graphics like the PSP?

Because it would cost more therefore limiting there market. Wonder why the PSP is a financle failure?

Probably because it only has 1 analog stick. But the new one is supposed to have 2 :)

The DS had no control sticks and is a finacle success (most succecful console ever), it is cheap and affordable which broadened their market, same with the Wii. Both consoles were n average around $100 cheaper than their competiters.

Any way my favourite game on the DS is by far the New Super Mario Brothers Wii!:D

But whenever the 3DS comes out with an analog stick, along with the N64 remixed games, I bet it's gonna hit sky high :D

According to gameshop owner it's going to be like the Wii, being in very high demand.
