IN PICTURES: Nintendo 3DS unboxing
Nintendo launched its newest handheld console yesterday in Australia - the 3DS. Promising glasses-free 3D action, the console is selling like hotcakes around the world. We take a look at what's in the box.
By pointing the 3DS camera at these cards, you're able to play games that take place in the real-world environment. It has to be seen to be believed.
An explanation of the age classifications in Australia. Notice how there's no R18+ rating?
The top screen there is the 3DS's main weapon. Glasses-free 3D. And yes, it does work.
Inside the manual - bright, cheerful characters try to entice people to read the dull text.
These little avatars, or "Miis," play a big role on the 3DS. This Mii here is ARN Features Editor, Matthew Sainsbury.
And this is the console itself. Stylish and solid like a tank. It's a good first impression.
The unopened box. We were surprised at how bulky and heavy it was... but man does it look good.
This small, cardboard wallet holds augmented reality cards.
The power cord is there, in tact. Just as well, because this thing needs constant recharging.
The big, bulky manuals. Does anyone still read these?
