Nintendo 3DS...Whoop Dee Doo

The Nintendo 3DS is hitting the market on March 27th with a hefty price of $250. What's the big hype about again? Oh yeah...glasses-free 3D capability. Other than that, the new 3DS looks pretty much the same as the previous DSi with the usual dual-screen, d-pad, and DS slot. I have to admit though, the glasses-free 3D handheld system is revolutionary, but that's what we said about the iPad and iPod, until other companies released similar products that were just as efficient for a LOWER price. $250 for a regular DSi with 3D capabilities and neat little analog stick is asking for quite a lot. It'll probably be wiser to wait and see what Sony has in store for us.

  1. Pretty good. This piece has a voice that I don't see in your B-boy pieces and it really works! Not only do you open this up culturally by mentioning the iPod and iPad (things that non-gamers can relate to), but you also build an argument here. This is especially stunning because in most of your B-boy pieces you just tell the information without really pushing any sort of worldview or larger point other than that B-boying is awesome. Very good work. Can't wait to see how you do in the upcoming exercises!
