RE: The 3DS - asdvj - 06-17-2010 04:56 AM
but what about GBA and before?
RE: The 3DS - aicragoee - 06-17-2010 06:11 AM
no hopes for that
RE: The 3DS - asdvj - 06-17-2010 06:40 AM
well looks like i will have to emulate them.

I really doubt the system will enable us to create and playback our own video content (lol "our own" indeed). I believe GBATMW will still have relevance until the day they can match or exceed what we have available.
It would probably require a sophisticated firmware hack to enable user video playback from SD card storage.

GBA won't be there. Geeze. Can't you people ever stop whining about it? The system was good, but has been dead for 2 years now. Obviously Nintendo won't add support for it if they know no one's going to use the feature anyways. Just use your good old GBA, DSPhat or DSLite. There's enough systems that have a GBA game slot or that can emulate the GBA (heck, even the iPlayer and Supercard DSTWO can, and they're just flashcards with an extra processor).

The 3DS won't have a GBA slot, sure, but I bet they'll make GBA titles available for purchase/download as 3DSWare (or whatever they end up calling it). With hardware upscaling to the 3DS resolution

firstly it i was the only one who asked whether this was capable of playing GBA and secondly i was not whining about it only asking if i can play it on the 3DS
in this technological age people want a device that can do everything. by your logic we should all have separate devices for taking pictures (camera), talking to people (phone), Listening to music or watching videos (media player) instead of just one device that can do it all.

Even the best phone camera is no match for a simple point and shoot. I don't know many people who take any serious holiday photos with a phone camera.
GBA games are pretty old. There hasn't been any serious development for the platform since 2004. Backwards compatibility is nice, but given how technology has developed you're using up a lot of space for something that can be shrunk down considerably. I wouldn't be surprised if they have a downloadable store for GBA games, but it just doesn't make sense (given the competition for ever smaller devices) to have a giant GBA slot.

It looks like people will be able to install their games onto their memory cards. This will probably be exploited pretty quickly.
It looks like The 3DS will be made for video playback.
Quote:Any 3D movie you see in the theaters has a variety of trailers of upcoming 3D movies. Nintendo went to Dreamworks, Disney, and Warner Bros. to show off those trailers on the 3DS, and the video quality was spectacular. How to Train Your Dragon, The Legend of the Guardians, and Tangled played back with as good 3D as you'd get on the big screen…but on the little 3DS LCD screen and without glasses. It was a great showcase of the system's video compression capabilities and a fun tease that we'll be able to watch 3D video content on the devicehttp://ds.ign.com/articles/109/1099595p1.html
I'm curious to what will happen, now that videos on the DS will start becoming mainstream.

it also has an SD Card slot, so maybe you can use homebrew like the wii.

Only after they crack it. The DSi also has an SD card slot, but still no homebrew
I've been reading hands-on reports and first impressions and some things are bugging me. I wrote this in a thread on GBATemp so I'll just copy paste it:
I'm a bit skeptical towards this particular 3D technology employed on the 3DS, and what it will render possible (and more importantly, impossible). People are all impressed by the 3D, but... there are these offhanded, dismissinve comments, nothing big, "oh it's a tiny detail, really, you won't notice it next to this glorious 3D", that keep popping up in every review I've seen, that are giving me doubts.
The 3d effect is only visible at a certain angle and a certain distance from the screen, and there's a limited area (a "sweet spot", someone called it) where the 3D is visible. Maybe too limited.
Tilting the console takes you out of that range and the image breaks. That wouldn't be so bad if you always held it straight, but it sort of defeats the point of the tilt sensors. Developers might be forced to choose between motion controls and 3D effects. It would also make that headtracking effect impossible. Try to look behind an obstacle and the image breaks. Devs would have to choose between that and 3D in a scene.
Also, the few people that even noticed the bottom screen commented that switching from the top to bottom screen took a while for your eyes to readjust, and frequent switching with the 3D on would be a headache. If that's really the case, developers might start avoiding the bottom screen entirely. And after all, who needs the touch screen when you have the analog nub?[/sarcasm]
And you can't turn the console sideways and hold it as a book any more, because that breaks the 3D. That's another control scheme out the window.
Again, these are only my fears, and it might turn out they're either exaggerated or solved by the time the console comes out, but still. What if.

Updates on Price;
“I have to refrain from talking specifically about the price point. What I can confirm is that, in terms of the production costs, it will cost more than the costs for the Nintendo DS today. Having said that, we believe we will produce enough value worthy of the production cost. We do not think we have to sell the products below cost.”Satoru Iwata.
RE: The 3DS - JLSYber - 06-20-2010 11:00 AM
So, it'll be around $200.
RE: The 3DS - RueGorE - 06-20-2010 03:38 PM
They can't possibly price this at or more than the Wii.... can they?

no. if they do then that isn't good business. they can price this at nearly the same price.
but then agani they can say that the reason for the price is because of the 3D.
RE: The 3DS - JLSYber - 06-20-2010 03:50 PM
As long as it's not too much over $200 I'm not to disapointed.

Why do you want GBA compatibility, I know that the GBA had some great games but the time for that is over go and buy a GBA if you want to play those games.
RE: The 3DS - chechiarts - 06-20-2010 04:37 PM
i will only buy it if the price is 200 or below i am not made of money you know[/u]
