Are there any plans for an "upgraded" 3DS?

#1daftalive08Posted 8/24/2011 1:18:48 PM
I'm pretty interested in the games that have been released/announced but I feel the system itself is somewhat lacking

The battery life is the only thing that really gets me, though
is it really as bad as I've heard?

If the battery life is as bad as I've heard then I'll wait and see if Nintendo plan to give the next model (if there is one) a battery upgrade

My battery lasts 5 hours usually with 3D on, 3 Light setting, Wireless always on. It usually lasts the whole day since I put it to sleep when in school.

If battery is the only thing that matters, then you should probably never get a handheld. My Cell phone doesn't last as long as my 3DS...

But it seems all 3DS systems are different.

They're going to announce a new version of the 3DS without 3D on September 13. Maybe it will have a better battery as well.

If the battery bothers you get the nyko powerpak+. Just the battery though, the charge cradle isn't worth the plastic used to make it, much less an extra $5.

I'll bite - stop posting rumours as fact.

No they're not, that's a rumor and a stupid one at that.

They aren't doing this. They are having a press conference. There won't be a new model any time soon. Definitely not before the start of the Christmas buying season. That would be stupid.

Zelda themed 3DS

It's Rupee Green.
It plays the treasure chest theme when you open it.

Nintendo has no plans for a 3DS redesign just like they had no plans for a DS redesign 3 different times.

We all know how the "no plans" turned out.
