Nope.. 3DS has nothing that interest me other than the new pokemon ( which is still the exact same thing i played when i was a kid, capture pokemons, gym and tournament ).

i'll wait for Black Friday deals tho and if dosent go below $99 then i'll only settle with the PS4 this year in terms of new hardware

3DS... below $99? The DSi just went to $99 last year.

maybe i'm getting old but the library isn't as great as everyone says it is when you have one and are thinking of what game to buy..

#54 Posted by Ballroompirate (23021 posts) -

I had one last year for work (working 14.5 hours a day can get really boring) but I traded it after I left that job. Gonna pick up another 3DS here shortly since they announced LTTP 2 and I need to play the new Fire Emblem game, been playing my friends copy when he isn't playing it.

Back it up. I thought Layton was done?

Anyway, yeah, they sold me the instant X&Y were announced.

I loved it right up until I played on one and found the thumbstick to be crippling.

well, 3d pokemon game is the game ive always wanted...so yes.. But ive owned a 3ds since xmas, so i dont need nintendo enticing me. The line up is indeed amazing. Smash 4 + Pokemon x/y alone is enough to warrant a purchase
#58 Posted by topgunmv (10246 posts) -
Nope, most of the games either look like complete ass, have a terrible framerate, or both. Someone should remind nintendo that 2d sprite games can have "3d" too.
#59 Posted by Cherokee_Jack (32198 posts) -
Yeah, owning a Wii U has made me really appreciate the 3DS.

The last game had a pretty obvious set-up for a sequel at the end.

Yep. Bought, owned, and lovin' it.

Then no 3DS, no big deal im not missing much, they'll release pokemon on the next DS handheld like always so till the next handheld lol

#63 Posted by gamefan67 (9902 posts) -
They sold me after they announced the 3DS. I ran out, bought one and quickly found out that me and handheld gaming just dont mix. Plenty of interesting games are coming out or have already come out so I might have to try again.

3DS has great RPGs like Rune Factory 4, Eterian Odyssey 4, Soul Hackers, SMT IV, Bravely Default: FF, DQVII Remake. How can you say you're "not missing much"? If those games were on a Sony platform you'd make a ton of threads about how good they'll be.

#65 Posted by Ly_the_Fairy (8652 posts) -

Nintendo sold me on it months ago, but they have not sold one to me yet :(

There are about 20 games I'd play (not that I'd have time to play them all I'm sure), and plenty more coming.

Would be dope if they can revive the Breath of Fire series onto the 3DS....soooo much much nerdgasm to be had if they did.

They sold me twice. Launch 3DS then the 3DS XL.

As of the Nintendo Direct back 3 days ago, yes. 
Took 2 years but they finally have me sold on a 3DS from the inclusion of the 3rd installment of Yoshi's Island and the new Zelda game.

 

#71 Posted by YoshiYogurt (5978 posts) -
Yep I have one of course. The library of games is simply amazing.
#72 Posted by YoshiYogurt (5978 posts) -
literally zero interest in the 3DS. I look at the 3DS and its like looking at a toasterNengo_Flow
The vita is the toaster. Overpriced with a small library. The 3DS is getting so many games, I don't even have time to play them.
#73 Posted by 2Chalupas (5152 posts) -
I bought that Limited Edition Yellow XL for $159. Haven't even opened it yet (will probably do that when Luigi gets to me, since if you register Luigi and the system you get Super Mario Land 3D to play for free). Not so sure how "into it" I'll be since I honestly have never really been into handheld gaming - most of the type of games found on handhelds don't interest me anymore anyway (i.e. I can't sink the time necessary into JRPG's).
#74 Posted by LegatoSkyheart (25519 posts) -

I was sold the day I saw Ocarina of Time and Star Fox 64 3D.

This is sort of nonsense.

People used to say same thing about PSP vs. DS. But for the most part, both systems had small libraries of relevant/quality games. However last gen it was practically a tie if you pulled out the best games. Unfortunately neither system ever really got my attention, and even at the end of the lifecycles when the systems got uber cheap I just shrugged my shoulders at them. 

The difference right now is a little bigger for 3DS, but it's still not that big of a deal. From what I see 3DS has about 15 games that I "would play" if I had time, and Vita has about 10 games that could possibly be worth my time (assuming I could bother allocating time to a handheld). It's not much of a difference and still a very small, paltry library compared to the larger world of gaming. I honestly don't even know why I bought a handheld at all, but I just happened to buy a 3DS because there was a cool limited edition version for $159. :roll:

#76 Posted by FlamesOfGrey (7511 posts) -

No, and if someone bought me one I'd sell it! :twisted:

That's nonsense. You can put all sorts of things in a toaster. Bread, bagels, English muffins, hamburger buns, pop tarts. You can get those dumb sleeves and make grilled cheese in it.
#78 Posted by Karpetburnz (548 posts) -

I plan on getting a 3DS for Pokemon X and Y

#79 Posted by TheWalkingGhost (5410 posts) -

Of course. I just don't have the money for one right now.

Maybe great to you but not to me... Eterian Odyssey 4 and Soul Hackers are both first person RPG ( first person RPG's are never enjoyable to me ), i was not able to like any of the SMT games on PS2 so i doubt that would change with the 3DS.. Bravely Default and pokemon are both interesting but not worth $160+tax+$40+tax just yet and rune factory? lol the PS3 game they relesed wasnt that interesting so i doubt i'd like the 3DS one.

again its all about what you prefer and 3DS has nothing interesting so again to reply to TC, no nothing got me very intersted to get one.

even if those games were on Vita i would only get Bravely Default.

#82 Posted by Heil68 (45125 posts) -
Nope, not yet. ;)
#83 Posted by GD1551 (9155 posts) -

Nope, the only game that looks remotely interesting is Ace Attorney 5.

#84 Posted by ConanTheStoner (5587 posts) -

No.  The games are there and the price is reasonable.  But every time I buy a handheld it ends up in a drawer, never to be used.  I've owned a DS since launch and probably played it for about 30 hours.

#85 Posted by MirkoS77 (7572 posts) -
On software, yea. But I'm not buying one until their fourth and final hardware revision hits: The 3DS, super duper XXILV Lite Bowser wowzer edition. Then I'll pick it up, have the best hardware and games for cheap, and have a huge backlog.
#86 Posted by lilasianwonder (5964 posts) -

Bought one when back when I heard Fire Emblem was coming out.

#87 Posted by I_Even_Lift (57 posts) -
I thought so the other day when all hype was going on, but not now. Still have to get a Wii U and a PS4 this year!
#88 Posted by loosingENDS (11826 posts) -

3DS is becoming better than PS1 and N64 combined

And those are my top systems of all time

Imagine a system that would have both FF9 and Zelda, 3DS is the first such system on earth AND does it with next gen graphics and 3D effect on top

And on top of all that it also gets a huge number of super quality amazing other titles like Fire Emblem, Layton etc and offers full DS games compatibility

#89 Posted by Dead-Memories (6586 posts) -

I bought one when Fire Emblem Awakening came out, enjoyed the hell out of that game; just recently bought Revelations, also a great game. The 3D works surprisingly well also. My next game is going to be Monster Hunter Ultimate for sure over the summer. It's a great system. 

#90 Posted by Goyoshi12 (9687 posts) -

Nope.

Shouldn't feel too bad, though. I haven't been sold on an Xbox, PS3, Wii, Wii U, or PS Vita either.

Pc has both FF9 and Zelda.

I had my doubts on whether it was a good decision but thanks to Luigis Mansion, being amazing and the games coming out this year it has made me very happy to own one and with Smash Bros being made as well for it who needs a Wii U.

You mean expensive, overpriced implies they are making a fortune on them, like the memory cards. Smaller library is a given since vita came out later, but it still has more games in my interest. So while you don't have time to play all your 3ds games, I would have time to spare with no games left since I only like 3 games that are on it.
#94 Posted by yokofox33 (29867 posts) -

I've had a 3DS since launch. Initially the system was a letdown, but now the games that have come out and will continue to come out are making it my favorite system overall. I have close to 10 games I've pre-ordered or will pre-order within the coming months.

#95 Posted by jsmoke03 (12923 posts) -

nintendo hasnt sold me on a handheld since gba

#96 Posted by gameofthering (10309 posts) -

I got it at launch. Still only got 5 games for atm.

#97 Posted by Nohtnym (1552 posts) -

No need. When I want to play something on the move, I just use iphone.

#98 Posted by V3rciS (2215 posts) -

Yes alrdy bought one but damn there are so many games I have to play not only on 3ds and my wallet is alrdy crying. Need to fix my economics first

[QUOTE="ZetA_LatA"]

No. The 3D messes with my eyes and spending money on a system where the main feature is more harmful than good won't happen.

You can just turn it off. I've played 3DS games on a friend's system and never once have I felt as if the 3D effect was a necessary element to the game. 

It's actually very useful for Super Mario 3D Land. Not necessary but definitely helps.

I'm thinking about getting it for Pokemon X/Y. Don't care too much about the other games except maybe Super Mario 3D Land and my brother already got that.
