Our First Few Days with the Surprisingly Joyful Nintendo 3DS

The Nintendo 3DS is the next big thing in video games. The new portable gaming system from Nintendo lets you play games in 3D, without the need for special glasses, but there's much more to it than that.

We've had two of the first North American 3DS systems for several days and we've discovered a host of mostly excellent surprises. Our favorite discovery made our desks come alive. (You'll see.) We're sharing as much about the 3DS with you as we can, in advance of the $250 system's North American launch on March 27.
