Man after playing with my nephew's 3DSXL the other day I was shocked at how slick this machine is. Then I hit the virtual console and fell deeper in lust for this device. So I grabbed one yesterday and a few games....wow Ninetendo really stepped up with this device. Up to 32 gig of extra storage with Micro SD. Easily Replacable battery pack. wifi, built in google chrome browser.
This isnt the locked down Handheld I was expecting. And I havent even started looking into homebrew modded game cartridges to load up music or movies fast and dirty.
I believe the DS was the number one selling gaming console of all time. mostly because of how easily it was to mod and use it for multiple things. I think Nintendo quickly figured that out and embraced it....also nice that it will play lots of 2ds or 3ds games. and the virtual games are like $5-10 bucks or less...
