Im currently waiting in my car parked in my wife's workplace parking lot. I brought the 3DS cause why not? I never take it out. Outdoors, I find everything around me too distracting, interfering with my enjoyment or concentration.
The 3DS has really weak screen brightness, i think this is a huge flaw on the Nintendo 3DS. I barely make out what's going on, so it would be better to take it out at night.
Is there anyone that actually enjoys their 3DS outside their house?
Yeah, if the system had more screen brightness, at least twice as bright, I would take it outside more often. Seriously, Nintendo f****d up big time. It's a portable handheld console, it's only natural people will try to play it outdoors (whether it's day or nightime).
It's even more puzzling considering they actually designed it with Spotpass, pedometer, and whatnot. They should've addressed this problem in the New Nintendo 3DS. It's built on a budget of about 200 dollars or so, they were more than capable to do this. I mean, even my 70 dollar cellphone is at least 3 times brighter, including an extra small boost of brightness with an "Outdoors" mode.
Aside from this, I don't have any other problems with the system, I freaking love my 3DS.
I played it away from home quite a lot when I was a student last year, usually between classes. Now I still play it away from home in places where appropriate. When working out of town and staying in a hotel, or in a doctor's office or other, non job related, waiting room.
My current job leaves me with no opportunity to play while at work unless I'm done for the day and in a hotel room for the night. Since I don't play in the actual out of doors, I don't find I have issues with brightness.
