Nintendo 3DS Games

August 20, 2010

Nintendo 3DS is a brand new way of gaming for this generation of gamers. You do not have to wear glasses to experience the special effects in this gaming device. It is surely a revolutionary machine, which will alter the way we play games. Nintendo 3DS has a very cool backwards compatibility feature and more horsepower. The processing power of the 3D component in the upcoming Nintendo 3DS handheld device can be used efficiently for making better-looking games. Nintendo 3DS handheld device is slick and stylish. The players will have a third dimension to this game but they can also enjoy the standard 2D format.

DJ Hero 3D:

The physical turntable peripheral in this game is brought to a handheld portable device and you do not have to pay anything extra for the special attachments. It does not have GBA cart slot and even if it does there is no way to attach it to the latest handheld device from Nintendo. Note tracking becomes easier with the 3D effect and you can focus on the closer planes. The background fades and blurs effectively into nothing. Controls are handled with stylus and like the console version the notes flow down the track. The color-coded arrows will tell you whether to flick right or left. When you find long stretches of some colors you have to scrub your stylus and when you find circles you should tap. It is very satisfying and simple game.

Steel Diver:

The Steel Diver submarine warfare game was long expected in Nintendo DS, but launched in Nintendo 3DS. It has been reworked for the 3DS version. Shigeru Miyamoto says that this title is almost done and the 3DS version is expected soon.

Kingdom Hearts:

The kingdom hearts video demo starts with Sora sitting on a branch by the edge of ocean water. It continues with various familiar locations, which is inter-spliced with the shots of some characters from the game. The trailer shows the 3D port of Kingdom Hearts rather than a new 3DS title. The graphics in 3DS is very nice but the 3D effect looks very weak.

Paper Mario:

It has new features like chain chomp companion and peel-off badges for Mario. Otherwise, it looks like GameCube and N64 games. The 3D effects in this game are completely binary and it does not matter whether the 3D slider is on or off, there is no variance in the 3D effects.

Mario Kart:

This Mario Kart game comes with 3D graphics. It is not as good as the Wii version and visually it is underwhelming. The 3D effects will pop up when the players overlap but still it is an exciting game.


Nintendo's 3DS top screen shows the trailer of Rapunzel animated movie from Disney. It looks exactly like the theatrical version of the animated movie trailer, but it a lot smaller. There is nothing Earth-shattering in this game. If this device is capable of playing full 3D movies, it will be much more interesting.

Nintendo Wii Controller

My Station Nintendo Wii by into the deep of my soul

The video gaming field is undergoing explosive growth. More and more people are getting on board with the video gaming lifestyle and buying the new consoles which bring so many entertainment options right in to their own homes. In 2007, estimated sales of video gaming consoles were in the neighborhood of $480,000,000! A large part of this total figure is accounted for by sales of the Nintendo Wii.

Sadly, the Nintendo Wii has been difficult to come by for many, given the unprecedented level of demand for this console. There have been waiting lists for the Nintendo Wii which are months long! Video gaming enthusiasts are less than thrilled by the situation.

Since its release last year, Nintendo Wii availability has been nothing short of dismal around the holiday season. If one of the people on your shopping list was hoping for a Wii, they may end up being disappointed. Nintendo has tried to keep pace with the demand for this system, but it has been nearly impossible to do this because of the overwhelming demand on the part of video gamers for this revolutionary console.

Finding a Nintendo Wii has been more difficult in some parts of the world than in others. In the UK, stores have has considerable trouble keeping the consoles in stock ever since their release. Since the beginning of the year though, Nintendo Wii availability has been slowly increasing. It is now a possibility to go into a store and emerge with a Nintendo Wii console, which has been an unlikely event before now.

Problems With Nintendo Wii Availability:

  • Holiday rush – The holiday season created a demand for the Nintendo Wii which far outstripped the supply of these popular consoles, creating a shortage worldwide.
  • Disappointment for gamers – the lack of Nintendo Wii availability led to a lot of long faces this past holiday season.
  • Scams – criminals took advantage of the unprecedented demand for the Nintendo Wii by perpetrating swindles on unsuspecting gamers.
  • Deceptive marketing – unscrupulous shop owners used deceptive tactics to sell more Nintendo Wii gaming consoles.

Deceptive Marketing and Controversial Sales Tactics

Some unscrupulous retailers were using deceptive strategies to sell more Wii consoles during the early days of Nintendo Wii availability in the UK. Knowing that the Wii was difficult to find, some retailers used the old “this is the last one in stock” trick to get customers to buy immediately based on the scarcity of the item rather than thinking about the purchase.

Other retailers overstated their inventory levels and promised Nintendo Wii availability at a certain date – which ended up getting them into trouble when the Wii consoles were not there at the time which they had been promised to customers.

The low availability of the Nintendo Wii at the beginning led a lot of consumers to fall for the plots of swindlers. On more than one occasion, swindlers sold a Nintendo Wii either through a website of their own or via online auction sites. The customer, eager to get their hands on a Wii before everyone else would pay and then receive a box full of bricks rather than a Nintendo Wii as a result of being taken in by this swindle.

Now that the Wii has become more widely available, these sorts of scams are now rare. Nintendo Wii should continue to become more and more available and soon there will be no more waiting lists for the exciting gaming console, no matter what time of year it is and where you live.
