The New Nintendo 3DS went on sale in Japan this weekend and it appears as though a lot of gamers decided to rush out and upgrade with most stores in Tokyo alone selling out of the product. So now the New Nintendo 3DS is out what do those who purchased it think to the new device? Here’s some thoughts.

Thoughts on the new C-stick

  • “The C-stick is actually pretty good!”
  • “It’s much better than I’d imagined.”
  • “I thought the C-stick would be useful, but it really is totally different to what I’d imagined. The rubber feels very hard on the tip of my thumb.”
  • “The C-stick is pretty much as I expected it would be. Those of you who have used a Thinkpad laptop’s red button can probably imagine how it feels.

The larger, improved screens

  • “The new anti-blur screen far exceeded my expectations.”
  • “The 3-D screen is superb! It’s so much easier to see.”
  • “I was surprised at how much better the new 3-D screen works.”
  • “Colours on the New LL’s screen are deeper than the old model.”
  • “The whites are a kind of pee-yellow…”
  • “The New 3DS’ screens seem yellower than the old 3DS’.”
  • “Yup, Nintennyo [nyo means urine in Japanese] 3DS.”

The wood effect

  • “A lot of people are saying good things about the wood-effect [cover].”
  • “[Nintendo] should just launch the New 3DS in wood as standard.”
  • “I changed my covers from standard black to wood-effect–it’s really cool. I like the way, when [the 3DS is closed], it almost doesn’t look like a portable games console.”

More thoughts

  • “Moving to the Home menu is super fast”
  • “Overall, the console is much speedier than the old one.”
  • “Launching and closing applications, opening the browser etc is much faster.”
  • “It doesn’t feel as good [to touch] as the old one.”
  • “The New 3DS feels cheaper than the old model to me. It’s more toy-like.”
  • “How does the slide pad feel compared to those on previous models?”
    > “The same.”
    > “The slide pad’s surround is now shallower, so it looks easier to clean. The pad itself hasn’t really changed.”
  • “The Start and Select buttons are now much more accessible.”
  • “The speakers seem a bit more powerful now.”
  • “I’m seriously impressed at how the sound quality has improved between the LL and New LL.”
  • “I tried loading the Niconico Douga app. Compared to the Vita version it’s pretty bad, but I guess it can’t be helped.”
  • “Monster Hunter on the New 3DS is just too good.”
  • “I have no regrets about upgrading.”

Thanks, Michelle

        • Hello there. I was avoiding your video since I thought it’s just a generic piece of shit, but since you posted it a billion times, I checked it out since it’s so short, and goddammit, it’s fucking awesome. But I saw that you put a link that shows someone impersonating me and you thought it was me you were arguing. All in all, I made an actual profile and I wanted to tell you that I really like that you made a video about me…..well, it’s an image, but you know what I mean.

          I would like for you to make more videos about me, you’ve boosted my ego and I thank you for that. I’ll eventually remove this “A.K.A Đonko” part because I used that nickname as a joke on one of my friends who we call that, but I thought that you need to understand who I am, so that I don’t have to explain that I’m the former Đonko to everyone….That’s it. Oh yeah, could you also remake that video and call me “Noa” and not “Đonko”. I would very much appreciate that.

You get the golden deal since you were so nice enough to compliment my video in an incredibly obvious saracstic tone, which really means you are actually insulting me in a salty manner in the corners of your blindly GENIUS brain, so I gave you the golden opportunity of a deal to heal yourself. It’s a once in a lifetime opportunity pumpkin. ;)

                Oh, and if you want to be even more facetious, here’s a little tidbit you can say next time you want to attempt subtlety:

  2. This made my head hurt. Nintendo NEEDS to port this game to the PSVita. Many of us Sony fans don’t want to buy an underpowered console like the Nintendo 3DS, but we would gladly buy a quality title like Smash Bros. Not only would it be benefical for both fans and Nintendo, but probably also REQUIRED by US anititrust law, since Nintendo has a monopoly on games like Smash Bros. by virtue of having no competing title.

    • Will first if all SSB U is better than 3Ds version. Nintendo was stupid to put the game in the 3Ds to begin with let alone release it on the 3Ds first. Nintendo is stupid though.

Hell, Halo as well considering that it has no competition what so ever (no, CoD is an Arcady shooter and Killzone is a fucking joke that should’ve died after the first one.) Let’s also get LBP, and Forza since GT has gone to shit.

    • 1. You are a retard.

      2. SSB uses Nintendo exclusive characters, which Sony can’t afford to pay for.

      3. SSB has always, and will always, be for Nintendo systems only. Not only is it tradition, but it only makes sense marketing-wise.

      4. Why would Nintendo put a popular game on sony systems, thus helping their competition? They made the game, they choose where it goes.

      5. There is no breach of the anti-trust law. That is bogus, and the reason is because Sony already released its own fighting game using Sony-exclusive characters called “Playstation All-Stars.” It’s not Nintendo’s fault it didn’t do well at all.

      6. If you want to play the game and don’t want to pay for a new console, then get a fucking emulator for the PC– an experimental 3DS emulator is already in the works, and has already worked for some games. If you’re really such a cheap bastard that you don’t want to pay for a new system MUCH cheaper than the PS Vita or PS4, then go for an emulation.

      7. Are you really so desperate to play a single game by Nintendo that you have resorted to port-begging? a. that’s pathetic, and b. that’s never going to happen, so c. your way out of your ass and realize that you’re going to have to, *dramatic gasp* actually spend some money to play one of their games on a NINTENDO system. Oh, the horror!

      8. You’re a retard

      9. You’re still a retard

      10. If you still didn’t understand this, please review reason number 1, 8, 9, and 10 until you do.

    • Yea, that part sounded disappointing, hopefully they are comparing it to good smartphone displays. Then, it wouldn’t be so bad.
      And smartphones are have a cooler white (blue-ish) anyway, which would make warmer white (yellow-ish) very noticeable. One is not really better than the other but I’d prefer the cooler tone.

          I won’t be buying it launch day however, since there aren’t any upcoming exclusive titles announced yet besides the Xenoblade Chronicles port. Hopefully we’ll see many games being developed for it at E3. I’m really hoping for a Super Mario Sunshine sequel.

  4. Iffy about Nintendo technology now…they think cheap and unique, but many people especially in western countries see it as weak and gimmick. Wii might sale best last Gen, but it damage Nintendo image, Wii u is doing the same with its weak hardware right now. The 3ds is great, but does it sale better than iPhones, iPod, and iPad…i still like Nintendo, but they DO NOT understand western countries. Wii u sale most in Japan, but western countries ps4 and Xbox 1 out sale it but double or triple the sale. I believe Nintendo always hold back their technologies when they could make it stronger and faster what the Majority consumer wants TODAY, people today look at YouTube review and see graphics comparison it will turn them away from Nintendo graphics looking like 360 or ps3. Only the fans will support Nintendo. In the future I hope Nintendo change their ways, and think powerful and unique instead of cheap and unique.

Of course some expected a new browser to see hentai or apps to download Videos and music. Just look at it. Nintendo is close in making a one Handle one console on your very own eyes. in one of the nintendo direct they speak about it, in how they wish to have both in one and bring a Revolution in a new generation.
