Ok, first impression, wtf is this? www.telegraph.co.uk/technology…
I think Nintendo forgot the meaning of 'handheld' and 'easily portable' there; if I'm going to be honest it looks like it needs a freakin' laptop bag to carry it around. I thought handheld meant you can shove it in your pocket when your mother enters the room, not accidently mistake it for your tablet o.o
It.. It looks like a tabletop arcade system and an old GameBoy Advance had a child..

Either that or its a deformed DS classic... *Cringe*
Enough about bashing its looks though, lets move onto the console's price compared to what it is actually worth.
The device is said to be able to able to play all available DS and 3DS games, but heres the doozy.. No 3D effects. What the actual f--
According to my sources 'The device will cost £109.99 in the UK and $130 - $40 less than the 3D version - in the US. '
Uh.. My personal opinion here: If you already had the games and consoles, why the heck would you want to buy this thing!?
I mean sure, if you don't own the DS or 3DS(do those people still exist? o.o) this would be great, or if you're a determined console collector you might find this an exciting little.. handheld(?) from Nintendo?
Perhaps this would even be a great little invention for a youngster. It's bulky, has no hinges to destroy and looks like it can take more of a bashing than the DS and 3DS.
What do you guys think? To buy or not to buy?
