3DS has three to five hours of battery life

So, it finally happened. Some 3DS news has occurred that's suddenly made me incredibly cynical about the system. Nintendo's Japanese 3DS site has revealed that the upcoming handheld sports a pathetic three to five hours of battery life.

This is how much life it has when playing 3DS games. The battery will last for five to eight hours when playing older DS games. The specs also state that the system takes 3.5 hours to charge, so depending on how quickly you can drain your battery, the 3DS can take longer to charge than it does to die. Nice.

Nintendo fans have always been able to hold superior battery life over the heads of PSP lovers, but it would appear that the graphical demands of 3D come with a great cost.

So ... that's bloody disappointing.
