Anyone else originally expect a DSi with 3D function?

Nintendo blew me away and definitely stole e3 this year. The Gamecube/Wii graphics coupled with the analog nub, I definitely didn't see that coming.

Before the reveal of the 3DS I had heard rumors of MGS on the platform. I literally had a nightmare about playing MGS with the DS's horrid 3D. Then I saw the video of MGS3 on the 3DS, and all my fears were swept away.

Yeah, it even puts the Ps2 original to shame.

3DS was always supposed to be a whole new system, not just another DS redesign.

Why did people not get that?

^Probably has something to do with the fact that DS is in the name.

I knew it was going to be a new system and not a DS redesign, but I didn't expect the huge jump in graphical abilities that we've seen thus far. I was really expecting something more along the lines of the current DS, maybe just with better AA or something.

They were different systems but the DS has had 4 different versions of it. I wouldn't think it would be uncommon if people thought the 3DS was just another redesign.

Hell, they made the DSi XL just to make it bigger, do you think it would be unexpected if they just slapped on 3D? Nintendo's starting to gain my respect again.
