    Honestly I enjoy it a great deal. I owned a PSP before and I am enjoying the style games on this better for a handheld. The 3D effect is cool but its really extra. The console itself is a true successor to the DS and everything it entails. I am hoping for an e-mail app soon however. Just so I can leave my laptop at home on vacation (I dont own a smart phone).

    Count me in im a 3DS owner too.

    Super Street Fighter IV is a direct port of the playstation 3 and 360 game, the only difference is the backgrounds look a little less sharp but the characters are almost the same and the framerate is buttery smooth.

    Zelda Ocarina of Time is another great game too. They redid all the textures and re did the controls to fit the 3DS, looks much better than the original but its a shame the music and sound effects are mostly the same.

    The online is much better as you only need one friend code. Im waiting for some new apps but next year they should have the software locked down. The eshop is a little expensive but im in the ambassador program so i will be getting the free games! All you had to do was log into the eshop before a certain date to get the free games.

    On ebay you can buy new screens, shells/cases, hinges, sometimes they come as a kit

    I just added you and will be adding you as a friend. Only thing is I have Zelda right now and nothing else that uses two players. However when I do youll already be on there.

    All in all I really enjoy this thing and am looking forward to all the cool stuff comming.

    Im looking forward to getting those ambassador games in September, also Starfox 64 3DS although for some reason in Europe the N64 game was called Lylat Wars.

    Thanks for the add, should come in handy for when they release some decent multiplayer games the wifi connection works surprisingly well on the 3DS.

    Cool. I have a feeling this clubhouse will consist of just you and me :laugh: I thought more people would have asked to join by now.

    Anyway what games do you have? All I have is Zelda so far and looking at your Mii card thats what you play too.

    Super Street Fighter IV
    Super Monkey Ball 3D
    Zelda Ocarina of Time

    Monkey Ball its not so good the motion controls seemed like they would be great but are fiddly.

    LOL at that picture, i see they photo shopped a second analogue stick onto the 3DS. Im not sure how this second add on analogue will attach or work but its a shame they didn't just do that in the first place.

    FML i knew they would do something like this. Hopefully some places offer a trade up or Nintendo might offer a trade up. HIGHLY doubt it but i would trade up if i could to this new 3DS.

    Game or HMV i guess might do a trade up. Yeah im pretty pissed too and i knew they would revamp the system eventually but this soon and a second stick that's pretty shitty for us that own one.

    Honestly I'm more worried about my wife. It took forever for her to cave and let me get one for me and the kids. The original DS whet years without a major revision now this?! Ill never but another console if they do this.
