        Which is really sad here.T_T

      • It’s from their press kit, not one from the community. :)

  • If only 3DS could support pressure sensitivity. I was pretty disappointed when i found out, after buying Colors! : (

    • The 3ds doesnt support pressure sensitivity? Really? I mean the DS version could…

    • Suicunesol

      Are you sure about that? Link please?

      My own Google searches yield opposite results. There is no reason why 3DS’s resistive touchscreen wouldn’t be pressure sensitive.

      EDIT: Nevermind, found it. It isn’t pressure sensitive after all.

        Ah crap.. I thought that was also the point for resistive screens :P
