Finally got a 3DS

#1MarioLinkNESPosted 8/14/2011 9:27:31 AM
Got it on the 11th actually. My question is why does everyone complain about the battery? I fully charged the system. Then I played OOT for 3 1/2 hours, watched netflex on it for 3 hours, played OOT again for about another hour, and have not charged it once since the charge, and I still don't have a red light. My only complaint is the volume. While watching netflex the sound is kind of quite. That is minor though.

Okay... seriously? I was with you on not having battery issues, but then I realized I never played more than 2 hours at a time. If I keep 3D up all the way it clunks out from 3-5 hours in. :P

Well, that explains it then. I did not have it up all the way. Not even half way. I did not realize the higher the 3d the faster it kills it. Thank you.

Whether the 3D slider is up 25% or 100%, the battery draw is the same. So you're claiming to have gotten 4.5hrs of 3D gaming along with 3 hours of Netflix streaming off of one charge. Yeah I don't buy it...

TC can't read time. Obviously since he watched netflix he had his wifi on. I'd say he got 3 hours tops on this.

LOL, I know right. I finished watching the first season of Xmen on it and my battery went to red. And it was fully charged and after playing an hours worth of gaming on it.

I don't see the point in getting MW3 when BF3 will be far more superior.
