Win a Nintendo 3DS

Posted on Feb 18 2011 - 1:29pm by Richard Sharp

Gadgets and Gizmos are delighted to let our readers know that Argos have provided you with the chance to win a brand new Nintendo 3DS portable gaming console worth £219.99.

About the Nintendo 3DS

The Nintendo 3DS launches on the 25th March with pre-orders available now. Nintendo’s latest offering will come with dual screens, one of which will be 3D enabled – the best thing is that you don’t need to wear glasses for the 3D to work.

The 3DS now has three cameras, two rear facing and one front facing. The extra camera allows users to control certain games using motion while the inbuilt gyroscope allows movement by tilting or twisting the device much like the Apple iPhone. Both 3D enabled and current games will work on the 3DS and users will also be able to download new content including 3D films and add-ons.
