AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAND?

I don't care about quadcore shizs with PowerVR videochips.

It's a phone without mobile connection. Wait, it does have 3G. So then it's a phone.

I want pure gaming experience, and Nintendo's expert at that. Sony isn't even close to their heels. Even the newcomer Microsoft is lightyears ahead Sony now.

uh I didn't know about the warnings for children under 6. I already pre-ordered one for my daughter since I can sell the dsi XL right now for $200+~ (with all the crap i got free).

One question though... will the current versions like DSi XL be able to play the new Zelda game with those new graphics or the 3Ds only can play those games or take advantage of better graphics?

I guess I can just cancel pre-order or hope it solds out first day it comes out and then I resell it for more.

Seeing as the 3DS is a brand new system and not just another DS revision, its games will only be playable on 3DS. Ocarina of Time 3D is a 3DS game.

Also, there's a slider on the side of the system that can be used to turn the 3D off entirely, eliminating any health risks.

I have a DSi XL that I got for Christmas, so I probably won't be upgrading to a 3DS until they release a revision ("3DS Lite") at a lower price.

I'm really not sure what you mean. The DS versions don't have much more going on than r/e/s did. SoulSilver/HeartGold feel the most polished, but they still have that old-game feel which is great. Even platinum was pretty fun. I mean, not trying to knock you, you're a pokemon fan!
