    As cool as this is the slate design is annoying to me, these things should be able to fit in your pocket...

Now get cross platform virtual console games that have different features on each device and now we are cooking with plasma!

    No more worrying about broken hinges. That's a good reason to get it for kids

    Yeah. It makes a nice gift for young kids. It's a good idea but of no interest to me.

    I'm going to get one to keep at home, while my standard 3ds will be my portable!

    Cool, a good price discount too. I don't want the 3D aspect of 3DS, so this may lure me.
