My 3d is always off cause it kills battery life, i only use it on the road, and if im on the road there is no way i can keep it still to have the effect be good anyway, so its better if its just off.
Thats it though, it SHOULD be an addon. I love that, if you want to use it, its there if you dont, dont . Its not trying to force anything on you like Ninty did with Wii and at the very least there addon works better than the comp(Kinect notwithstanding) and at least they support their addons, alot more than i can say that Ninty did for Motion+ and that sold way more. SO what was Ninty's excuse. It is completly irrelevant how much people use what cause as we seen with this gen that doesnt always equal support. Which is the most important thing right? Dont care about "innovation" or who did it first. I only care about who does it better and if it works. 3rd party shovelware is companies taking advantage of people who like things like WiiFIt, thats all that was and the MADE money on it, especially the no name guys. IT was that cheap to make. They didnt bet on the wrong horse, they made games they knew woulld SELL on Wii.
THe 3ds was never dead, we just had to high expectations and it seems some still do. We thought the 3d was going to sell it, it didnt, we gotta to deal with that. Same with WII U the controller ISNT sellign the system, thats just the way it is. I know some wish it wasnt so.
Not at all, I have never tried to pass my opinion off as facts, I even stated in my reply as opinions with the word in there lol. I clearly stated that it's not for everybody and is not perfect by any means, but it's definitely a new way to play games and just like all ways of controlling games, will require time to get it right. I'm also simply saying that graphical improvements is bland due to the nature of it being expected, not that it won't improve our gaming quality, these are all very seperate things but you seem to want to lump them together for some reason, kinda strange. o_O;
You must have a first gen 3DS :-/ in that case yeah it sucks, I have a XL personally and the battery life is not bad if I just keep brightness at 3 on my end.
Seriously man, Motion+ didn't sell that well either considering how many wiimotes were out there when it came out, it's only okay now because they put WM+ in all Wiimotes now. The problem is support would be shit without them being the standard and that's why I'll never have a Move or an Eye. One thing Nintendo was smart about was the plug-in port on the Wiimote where you can just plug in cheap game pads into it, but that's about it.
I have no verdict because I don't think the 8th gen would do really well overall, and I want to be wrong on this, please let me be wrong :( Anyways, I was merely talking about the word "bland." It seems more like you meant "niche."
