It's great, but no friend codes at all would be better

The coins stuff was also confirmed. Basically you carry your 3DS around with you, and the pedometer in it will make you earn fictional coins that you can use to spend unlocking features in games. Pretty cool, and a nice incentive to have the machine with you.

Also a nice incentive to sit on the couch watching TV, getting my right hand even stronger

HMV and Game ( the two biggest video game retailers here in the UK) have just listed the 3DS as 229.99!!! The cheapest I've seen is Play.com who are listing it as 219.99!

Think I'm going into Game later and canceling my pre-order. Don't get me wrong, I do want one, but I'm not paying 230 for the base machine. I can only hope that closer to the date, the retailers will start some kind of price war... I hope.

Looks like the 3DS will be the perfect device for point and click adventures, choose your own adventures, and so on. Confirmed is an in-game notepad app that is part of the backgrounds OS.

In all, the background OS will have these functions, which pause the game you're playing when in use:

- Notepad app (write / squiggle down anything)
- Opera Web Browser (check up on the web, gamefaqs guides)
- Friend List (check up on friend status, see who is playing online and even join them)
- Street / Spot Pass notifier (see if there's any new data uploaded to your system as you were out and about)

Also of note, the way the menu system is setup is also confirgurable. You can have a single line of apps, dual lines and a whole page.

Nintendo's eShop (their new online promotion / sales store) is confirmed to be cash-based, doing away with Nintendo points.

The Nintendo eShop will use a cash-based system. Users can either input credit card information in the shop or purchase a Nintendo 3DS Prepaid Card at retail locations.

I can't wait for my 3DS to join my NDS, PSP, PSP Go, and various Android devices in my handheld graveyard.

Dead or Alive Dimensions will have a Metroid stage and Samus as a playable character. Another game that's looking boss.
