I was super excited for the 3DS, I was told it was the next handheld console which would replace the DS. That it may or may not be compatible with the DS chips.

After seeing it, I got the impression it was just the next iteration of DS. Along the lines of Phat, Lite, DSi... now 3DS? I really hope I'm wrong, but with it being nearly identical to already existing DS systems, and the 3D being optional, I can't quite see this as a new console on it's own.

Please tell me I'm mistaken, as I have a distate for the same products being relabeled and resold with only small changes.

BTW: I'm not hating on it, I'm still very excited for this, just disappointed that it seems to be another re-label.

That being said, I'm completely stoked over the games coming out for it. especially Kid Icarus! And quite a few of those leaked games, if those are official.

The 3DS is a brand new system. It is not another design of the DS.

You are mistaken. It's a new system, but luckily, it maintains the compatibility with the previous DS games. :D

There's also movies you can watch using the 3d effect as well like How to Train your Dragon.

See Game Boy --> GBC. Two entirely different systems, but still in the same "family". They were both GameBoys, just different iterations.

The DS and the 3DS are just two different systems in the "DS family".
Has anyone really been far even as decided to use even go want to do look more like? ~ Devsman
