Nintendo recently accounced a brand new and innovative handheld device. This device will change the way the world plays video games – It is the NINTENDO 3DS. The FIRST handheld that brings 3D gaming to lif – and guess what -There are NO STUPID GLASSES TO WEAR!
Just about every single store is accepting pre-orders for the 3DS that will be released on March 27,2011.
However, if you want one of these bad boys, I suggest you secure your pre-order.
Here is some info about the 3DS
Nintendo 3DS is a groundbreaking hardware release that brings 3D gaming to the handheld market for the first time. The fourth major release in the DS product line, the Nintendo 3DS utilizes 3D Slider functionality and an improved top LCD display to present a glasses-free 3D effect on compatible games, while giving players the option to moderate the effect as they see fit. Taken together with additional features including full analog control in 3D game environments, motion and gyro sensors that transfer the movements of the handheld into the game, 3D camera functionality, an adjustable stylus and full backwards compatibility and you have not only a must-have system, but a revolution in handheld gaming.
As with every new gaming device – there are already many of these items being sold on ebay. One thing you probably DON’T know is that – PEOPLE ARE ALREADY MAKING MONEY! If you search completed auctions on ebay, you will see that MANY auctions are already selling for more than $250. Does this make any sense to you? Well, it should. It means that this is an item that has “easy money” associated with it.
This is is not even sold out and still making money. Amazon is selling the Nintendo 3DS for $249.99 and ebay has auctions that ended for about $260 already.
This product will most definitely sell out – Dont be kicking yourself in the ass in a few months when this becomes the hottest item and biggest seller. I personally recommend buying it from Amazon since they have free shipping and no tax in most states. You will not get charged until the item ships, in case you are low on $$ right now. Also, if for some reason this item does not sell out – you can always return it
