Nintendo 3DS hardware specs have been revealed at the Nintendo 3DS event. But we may need a little more battery life.

The Nintendo 3DS event has finally arrived in Tokyo. And while hundreds, or even thousands of gaming fans line up to test what the Nintendo 3DS has to offer, the company has released an updated list of the handheld’s hardware specs and shared that the battery life of the console can only last for 3-8 hours.

Battery life of the Nintendo 3DS will depend on the games the user will play. Play time for Nintendo 3DS games is 3 to 5 hours while DS games get a more generous play time with 5 to 8 hours. The handheld console will be released on February 26 with a price tag of ¥25,000 or roughly $300.

Everyone’s pretty much excited over the release of Nintendo’s highly anticipated handheld console, the Nintendo 3DS. But a couple of weeks right before it unleashes every detail it can squeeze out at the Nintendo 3DS Event this January, the company has already released health precautions that might not only damage the excitement, but also the gamers that would even be interested in playing it.

A recent study from a market research firm named Interpret show that the smart phones, which include a stellar cast of Apple’s iPhone, Google and Android OS tag team, plus new player Microsoft’s Windows Phone 7 platform are steadily gaining the approval as a popular alternative, if not mainstream handheld gaming platform, to DS and PSP.

In a US-based survey that Interpret used in their report, among the 9,000 people interviewed, 44% play games on their phones, a 53.2% increase compared to last year. What’s more mindboggling is 27.2% own both a phone and a PSP and DS.The handheld gaming titans’ popularity dropped by 13% but still dominates the market.
