The Nintendo 3DS: What's so great about it?

Updated on May 22, 2011

Sure it plays games in 3D and all, but what else is so great about it? Is this not the 3rd DS version since the original release? How can this system possibly be something I'd want to buy?

These are all valid objections to getting the Nintendo 3DS, but there are actually some good reasons to buy the console. Maybe the benefits and new features will outweight the objections that a person might have. So what exactly is so great about the Nintendo 3DS?


The cost

It will cost you almost nothing to get the Nintendo 3DS. In fact, you may not even have to pay anything if you trade your original DS system and a few games. Even if you had to buy it without a trade-in; it still wouldn't be bad.

The games

I know that the games for the Nintendo 3DS will be addicting. Game developers will be making games that take advantage of the new 3D technology. There will be many games that are unique and innovative thanks to the new technology in the Nintendo 3DS.

The Nintendo 3DS has AR technology

You may not be familiar with AR, (augmented reality) but many are saying that it is also the next big thing in gaming. AR is computer generated graphics mixed with real world scenarios. There will be a link to another post on AR technology in this hub.

Nintendo is leading the way for more AR games to be produced. The technology is there; it just needs to be improved and used by developers. Can you imagine what it would be like to get an update on your DS from an alert system using GPS saying that there are rare Pokémon sighted in your area?

The technology is there, it just needs to be integrated into actual gaming.

So why should you get a 3DS?

The Nintendo 3DS is more than just another system. It is the system that will lead other developers into a new generation of gaming. There is a lot of potential in the technology that is used for the 3DS. The concept is there; it just needs to be exploited.
