I don't really understand why the camera would be placed just above the top screen. To me it just seems like waste of space that the top screen could use. Why not just put it in between the two screens like the DSi? :/

Either way, I'm still really excited for this handheld.
I wonder what's for DINNER?

Just keep in mind that it wasn't the final design... they could still change some things, right?

I'm just disappointed that the top screen looks so blurry in all the videos I've seen... Stupid 3D effect, you ruined it all with your innovative "No glasses needed" 3D!!!!


I love you though.... please be available for demo play in stores soon!

No not all I actually like the placement better. My laptop has its web camera above the screen and it works fine.
Waiting for more info on: Golden Sun Dark Dawn, Pokemon: White/Black Version, LoZ: Skyward Sword, 3DS, and Dragon Quest X.

Are you kidding? That's just because to a camera, that has one eye, so it sees both eye's pictures. It's not actually blurry.

Nope, it is the final design

Anyways, this isn't as bad as how the 3DS looks closed, since it has 3 distinctive colors that make it look like a inedible badly constructed sandwich.

Are you trying to say that if a camera had two "eyes" camera's that we would be able to see the 3D effect?


Without having a special screen or 3D glasses? :P

No he's saying that unless you are looking at it in person it will be blurry

That's not to say there couldn't be a slight nip and tuck here or there - or that there won't be changes made under the hood - but it sounds like the current design of the 3DS is, by and large, how things will stay.

That sounds like there still might be small changes... You never know what'll happen with Nintendo.

Yeah, the only way to properly film the 3DS' top screen is to have the 3D turned off.
