The 3DS's processing power is...

I'm impressed. The 3DS line up of games is showing stuff like Paper Mario and Star Fox 64, where both games started out on the N64. Does this mean that the 3DS has a processing power equivalent to the N64 while being a handheld? Probably even better. Also, considering the kind of stuff that we've been getting for the DS (the jewels in the rough, at least- not the neglected stuff), all of this is making me pretty excited. That's pretty darn great, if you ask me.

Oh, yeah. I just found out that the 3DS existed so... there any confirmation about reverse compatibility?

You do know the DS was pretty comparable to the N64 right?

The 3DS is rumored to be pushing PS3/360 power.

Man, what did I just write? I just wrote that I didn't even know the 3DS existed until about a few minutes ago. How would I know that? -_-

They were heavily exagerrating when they said the 3ds is as powerful as the ps3/360 at least graphically. Just looking at the trailers you can tell it is around psp/ps2 quality. And I think it was confirmed that it has reverse compatibility.

Yes, it's backward compatable with the DS and the one or two DSi games out there, and since this is the next generation of DS, rather than another remodel, I would say that a Virtual Handheld will probably be a reality this time.

I said "rumored" to be "pushing" PS3/360 processing power.

Do you realize how expensive it is putting technology on an hand held with that power? The battery life is also of a concern.

^ Do YOU know how expensive that is?
