i think the point he was making is that at the price you can buy a wii or for a little more you can have a ps3 or the new 360. at that price you might as well get a iphone/ipod touch for mobile gaming, unless you absolutely need to experience 3D. i think this is going to flop just like other 3D tech being released, once people see it they will say "meh, i don't need to drop 3 bills for that when my old ds works fine."

Nintendo is milking the DS console.. I'd rather just buy a PS3 or Xbox 360 for $300.

So, Nintendo releasing a new DS is milking, yet Sony releasing another PSP isn't?

Besides, the DS is in a different gaming category from the PS3/360/Wii. Those are Television home consoles. The DS (and PSP) are handheld portable consoles.

I think the release date will be in 2011, as Feburary of 2010 has already passed!

AR stands for Augmented Reality.  Basically, you can look at something with the 3DS camera, and it will digitally add to the live video feed.  Similar to this: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZKw_Mp5YkaE.

The cards are likely similar to the markers in that video, and the AR software is probably going to be comprised of interactive games.  Basically, it will be a free, totally awesome tech demo, right on the launch unit :D No complaints here!

What's AR technology, and why does it need cards?
