I wandered into GameStop today and realized that the 3DS launched this past weekend. I had no intention of buying since the price was so high. Was talking to the guys about it and they had just gotten a demo unit in so I fired it up.
The 3D effect has to be seen to be believed. It's 100% amazing. After just viewing the system menu in 3D I had to have it. I bought Street Fighter as well and it looks freakin' fantastic.
If you're a gamer and haven't checked out the 3DS yet get to your local store and check it out. It's crazy. Youtube has some Resident Evil: Mercenaries videos and while you don't get the 3D effect from Youtube you do get an idea of what the system is capable of.
The 3DS gives me headaches. I always just turned the 3D effect off (an absolute requirement on such a headache-inducing device), but I'm sure the kids will love it. Kids are obsessed with 3D.
But will the kids get headaches too? That's the question...
