Would you pay more for better cameras?

Say they released two versions of the 3DS at launch, one with exactly the specs we've seen, and one with 5 Megapixel cameras and capable of capturing 3D video as well, with say 16 or 32 gigs of internal memory (versus none or almost none). Maybe another $100?

Who would buy the second version?

I'd consider it...

If they included 3D video recording, I would die of dehydration because I ran out of drool.

The internal memory doesnt matter, if it can support SDHC external memory, then thats fine. But 5 Mpixel is nice.

It would be pointless.

At least pointless for Nintendo and majority of users. The two outside cameras are the ones for taking pictures with. Except now they're 3D, which can be only viewed by a few actual screens. Not to mention you can never print a 3D picture unless it got converted.

The inside camera has a REVERSED image. Pointless for phototaking unless you reverse the image back. This camera is built for gameplay uses. It's like staring in a mirror, the image is wrong.

Lets not get started on the fact that the resolution is still higher than the 3DS can show on either screen. If you care anything about pictures you'd buy a proper camera and carry it around. The only thing mobile phone cameras have done is in taking record of people typically doing stupid things in groups or on the off chance you see something news worthy like a tornado or on the scale of say a terrorist attack.

if you want quality bring a proper camera. If you on holiday bring a proper camera. If you wish to capture memories in visual form bring a proper camera. If you like hanging with friends and taking pictures of them hanging over your shoulder, I suggest you bring a proper camera.

If you want something other than a proper camera, then use the mobile phone you're more likely to have than a DSi. Unless of course you don't actually use a mobile phone, in which case get a proper camera. Or use the 0.3 MP camera's the DSi has which are still perfectly fine.

Or maybe people just want to have fun with a cool 3D picture gimmick and don't need a "point" but would be willing to pay more to have a neat 3D recording feature that no device has ever had before because it would be entertaining.

I dunno.
