The Nintendo 3DS Red is set to be one of the top sellers this Xmas 2011 and we also think that the Cherry Red version will be the most popular however you can also get the system in black as well.
The Nintendo 3DS is a brand new hand held gaming console and is the fourth major release from the DS product line with the major changes being that the new 3DS utilizes 3D Slider functionality and it also gives you an improved LCD display which will actually give you a 3D effect on games without having to wear 3D glasses.
The 3D Screen as with previous models of handhelds by Nintendo has an upper and lower LCD display with a “clamshell” layout. The lower screen gives you touchscreen technology which makes it easier to pick options and is 3.02″ (2.42″ wide x 1.81″ high) with a 320x 240 pixel resolution. The screen is also capable of displaying 16.77 million colors!
However the top screen is where the REAL technology is and you will get a 3.02″ wide x 1.81″ high screen that will give you the same 16.77 million color display but it also gives you a 3D display so it adds depth to gameplay.
There is also a built in 3D depth slider and this will allow you to adjust the 3D effect to your liking. The games do look better with 3D but if you don’t like it with the slider you can turn the effect off and have it in retro 2D if you prefer! Another awesome feature is that you get a built in 3D camera and the pixel count is quite high so the quality will be very good. You get 300,000 pixels that make up your pictures.
In short if you are looking for the ultimate handheld games console then you need to give the Nintendo 3DS Red a look, of course you don’t HAVE to go with the red color. This is set to be one of the top toys for Xmas 2011 and with big discounts in place for the festive period as well.
Here is a look at what you get in the Nintendo 3DS box:
Nintendo 3DS system, Nintendo 3DS charging cradle, Nintendo 3DS AC adapter, Nintendo 3DS stylus, SD Memory Card (2 GB), six AR card(s) (view the cards using the outer cameras to play supported AR games), Quick-Start Guide, Operations Manual (including warranty).
A word of caution however:
If you are planning on picking up the Nintendo 3DS for Xmas 2011 make sure you are quick as these do not look like they will be in stock for long! There is a HUGE demand for these consoles and you should order early to avoid disappointment.
Wait until you see the awesome new software that you get with the system called StreetPass…
