We’re just weeks away from the UK release of the Nintendo 3DS. If you haven’t already pre-ordered one you’re unlikely to get it on launch day as it’s reportedly had over 100,000 out of the 185,000 units allocated for the UK pre-ordered and that figure is likely to rise even further before its release.
Interestingly enough the IPad 2 comes out on the very same day. Maybe Apple wants to piss on Nintendo’s parade or it simply doesn’t see it as competition. Either way it might be worth waiting a few months more before getting the 3DS or IPad.
The 3DS like all consoles when they first come out doesn’t really have any must have stand out games just yet, but give it a year and like the DS before it will have a library of games that really show what it can do.
As for the IPad 2 it doesn’t seem like much of an improvement. It has a reportedly average quality camera and a duel core processor. Apparently it can produce amazing graphics, but so far there are no examples. Maybe in a few months Epic Games or ID can produce another game that shows what it can do. Maybe the IPad 3 will have that “retina display”.
