I just feel like the format is so limited, with almost no potential for a narrative at all, that it's mostly impossible for them to catch up to what games can currently achieve.

There's a reason why "arcade" means what it does - designates games designed to be played in short spurts without much of an "experience."  In that way, fighters are in the same category as puzzle games,  part of the picture, but kind of done to death.

Everything has been done to death.

MS did this 9 years ago.

As stated already, Nintendo actually did it first.

But this time when Nintendo did it, it's innovative. You can change both the top AND the bottom plates! Swappable face plates and...uh, butt plates. REVOLUTIONARY. It's the amazing feature you never knew you always wanted.

Bask in the ingenuity of Nintendo's top hardware R&D; butt plates. Let's see Sony or Microsoft top THAT.

Nintendo just won this generation.

That being said, I am a little surprised at the response the device is getting. I wanted Sony to do a similar thing with the PSP Go (namely, the second stick) and the internet cried at how dumb it would be to "split the userbase." But then Nintendo comes out and does the same thing (with extra horsepower!) and the internet cheers.

Humans confound me.

The "internet cheers" huh? Have you read this thread? A large majority of the reaction is talking it down. Not cheering. More like jeering.

That said, yes. Humans are confounding.

A camera stick, some extra buttons, double the ram, and a boosted processor.  Plus a better web browser that cost 30 cents to unlock if you want to go to sites Nintendo doesn't deem appropriate.

Also improved stereoscopic 3D that tracks your eye movement so you don't have to babysit that "sweet spot" to get the 3D effect.

And the biggest feature ever (for the smaller version anyway): CHANGEABLE FACEPLATES!!! You can decorate the outside of your 3DS with several different kinds of decals, and really show the world just what kind of a nerd....erm, GAMER you are! OMG, this is a revolutionary evolution. Tweet your Twitters and Face your Books on all Your Tubes about this folks. Nintendo just changed the face of gaming again...literally....!

There are also customizable homescreen backgrounds coming (like the PSP and Vita had/have) but the "regular" 3DS units will be able to do this too with a new upcoming firmware update.
