From E3 to this Divas and Dorks exclusive interview with Nintendo…
I had the pleasure of first hearing about the Nintendo 3Ds online and through E3 but during yesterday’s event, Senior Marketing Support Specialist – JC gave me a hands-on demonstration of the Nintendo 3Ds and I have to say it was phenomenal! From the design, ease of use and entertainment/fun factors – if you’re looking for a gaming system that keeps you interested in playing for hours at a time, the Nintendo 3Ds is definitely the way to go!
