Things to know about the Nintendo 3DS

Today 3DS games will hit the shelves five days before the 3DS sys­tem itself. Such games will include The Sims, Mad­den, Ridge Rac­er, and Ghost Recon to name a few. So in light of the upcom­ing release here is a few things to note about the 3DS.
— The 3DS is back­ward com­pat­i­ble with all DS games (non-3DS games will not use the 3D effect)
— Nin­ten­do added a left joy­stick for bet­ter move­ment and accu­ra­cy
— Added “Home” but­ton. This will pause the game allow­ing you to to access oth­er items like the Nin­ten­do shop with­out hav­ing to stop the game
— The light for bat­tery now shows oth­ers col­ors for oth­er noti­fi­ca­tions. Red- low bat­tery, Green — nor­mal, Orange — Friend, Blue — Wi-Fi
— The 3D effect can be turned up, turned down, or com­plete­ly turned off
— The top screen is 10% larg­er than that of the DSI mod­el
— Like the DSI mod­el comes stan­dard with cam­eras. Three instead of two (one inside , two out­side) allow­ing the abil­i­ty to take 3D pic­tures
— The 3DS will come with a charg­ing cra­dle
— Built in motion sen­sors for side to side, up and down, as well as tilt­ing (games will use the dif­fer­ent effects)
— Will include a 2GB SD card
The Ninte­do 3DS will be 249.99 and games around 39.99. Will it be the next big thing or will it pull a PSP Go?
