3DS Battery life

So disappointed… Read today that the Nintendo 3DS *max* batter life span is 3,5 hours. Wtf! Can we use extra battery packs or something?

gametrailers invisible walls segment today said it's more like 1 and a half hours with the 3D on if i recall.

dammit, i always hate this time in nintendo handheld releases.

i'm always fucking tempting to get the new gameboy, knowing full well, there's only one god damn game i'll ever buy for the thing, it's always the same series, pokemon.

yeah yeah, i guess i'm an addict or something, but.... eh, it's one of the rare game series where i can't just accidentally beat it in like 20 minutes and it's honestly one of the best JRPGs period as well.

then again, those AR card things seem pretty cool too assuming it's more than just some cheap trick or 3D animated .gif equivalent, would be awesome to see publishers who aren't nintendo really pick up on the little cards and use them in interesting ways, but.... will they?

as of so far, no one really knows and i can't even find much speculation either.

i should point out that gametrailers pretty much featured the 3DS that has now arrived for them on this week's invisible walls segment and they said it's a pretty solid three to four hours with the 3D stuff on, like 5-8 with it off, honestly.... that's still downright pathetic though i mean let's be honest, IF i buy one of these things, it's not going to be to play games with the 3D off which brings me to another point i haven't found really much about yet which is...

is the 3D functionality backwards compatible with DS, DS-Lite, or even DSi titles at all?
i can't make heads or tails of whether or not it is at this point, it seems like it should be able to 3Dify games that weren't built for it to some lesser extent that might be almost negligible, but... who knows i'm just speculating on how the 3D works whether developers have to "develop 3D" or if it can accent non-3D games with even minimal 3D touches at all.

if anyone happens to pick one up feel free to type us a book on the 3DS in general here, the battery life thing is going to a HUGE hurdle for me personally though.
oh and, it's obvious and almost obligatory that the launch games are probably some of the worst shovelware excuses for games you'll ever see outside of facebook so that doesn't really need mentioning.

In all of the articles I've read so far, the 3D ability is only capable with games designed for the 3DS, but, you can play older games on it.

The biggest thing that caught my eye was that while most people liked the 3D gaming, they only played in 3D for short periods of time as their eyes tired out, usually within half an hour.

I'm just hoping that this means the DS XL gets cheaper soon.

if you wind up buying one let me know on the reverse compatible 3D thing.

also, make sure to note whether you have a horrible headache (and if so after how long playing) or go blind from the 3D.

we'll be looking to get the DS XL if we decide to upgrade for Shy Jr. She has a DS Lite and I have a PSP, we share both devices. I can't do 3D due to my eye condition, so yeah, we'll be the un-coolest parents ever.

I just like the bigger screens, much more comfortable on the ol' eyeballs. Besides, I've always been the type to wait on new technology, see how other people review a product.

yeah i don't want to be a guinea pig either until it's shown it won't destroy your eyes.

honestly, it seems quite retarded that it didn't get a capacitive touch screen with this hardware revision too.

i just finished a project this morning that renders the 3DS completely and totally obsolete at any rate



seriously though, i've been putting off making a pair of these for minecraft and some other stuff for a while now, this tempts me to buy one of those 120hz refresh rate monitors and nvidia's special shutter glasses WAY too much.
