Web: - Hi- Res images of the unboxing here! Twitter This is the long awaited Nintendo 3DS unboxing.

Subscribe to the channel for the Nintendo 3DS review. Here are some details on the 3DS - The Nintendo 3DS system opens up a whole new world of eye-popping gameplay possibilities. The stereoscopic 3D display of the upper screen gives objects within the game world a feeling of space and depth that extends far into the back of the screen. It becomes easier to see the position of characters and obstacles in the world, making many game experiences even more intuitive for all types of players.
