lol okay now

I would say it is when it comes to hardware. Since psp already had 1 analog and vita has a better touchscreen.

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

Pc has both FF9 and Zelda.

True, but not legally.

[QUOTE="GoldenElementXL"]They sold me twice. Launch 3DS then the 3DS XL. Epak_

Same here, never owned two of the same console before. I'm trying to sell the OG at the moment though, nobody seems to want it. :(

I plan on keeping my OG 3DS when I get a 3DS XL I'm just going to transfer my profile to my XL and then keep my OG one for Trades and so I can always street pass with my self.

All in all I'm glad I picked up an XL instead of a Vita.

You missed the point

I meant 3DS is what PS1 and N64 were for their time

Took years for Zelda and FF7-8-9 to be on PC

Like it would take years (or never) for Zelda Link to past 2, Bravely Default etc to be on PC (i doubt the latter will ever be on PC)

FF9 and Zelda are not exclusive to PC and appeared there years after PS1 and N64 originals, so what does that have to do with Bravely Default and 3DS Zelda ?

I've had it since launch, and have enjoyed it since then :) Despite the dry spell in the beginning, there was enough there to keep me occupied. Now it's on fire with the amount of software, and I doubt I can keep up this year.

I bought a ps vita and 3ds early on and after several months I came to the conclusion that handhelds and their games don't appeal to me. I feel that they provide lesser experiences, so anytime I wanted to play games at home I often chose my pc or ps3 over my handhelds. Taking them outside wasn't even an option unless I was traveling because of the overall bulk of the devices. They just weren't convenient to bring along with me.

I need games worth getting that will turn me away from the Vita, they are getting there, but they are now spouting re-releases now instead of continuing output. Oh, and they already gave up on the promise of getting more western devs on board.

[QUOTE="finalstar2007"]

[QUOTE="charizard1605"] 3DS... below $99? The DSi just went to $99 last year.Bigboi500

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

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.

It's finalstar, anything not Sony but good he bashes by saying he will wait for a cheaper price.

Nintendo has sold me on the fact that they're clueless when it comes to making consoles, but on nothing else.

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.

Nah, I'd like to say that the main feature of any gaming system is the games. The 3D was one of its biggest selling points/gimmicks, but in no way should its inclusion stop anyone informed from not making a purchase.

Notice I said when it comes to hardware since that is what the discussion was about. But you are right games are the main reason we own these systems.

lol, it'll be funny--if I do end up picking a 3DS up, it'll be the first time I've stepped into a gamestop since BF3 was released; I thought installing it via DVD would be quicker :roll:

I've had a 3DS since Day One. It's a great system. That being said, its library is nothing compared to what the DS had at this point in its life cycle.

[QUOTE="Ly_the_Fairy"]

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.

whiskeystrike

20 o.O

20 games I have interest in, and if I did not have my PC (in all of its awesomeness it actually can satisfy 100% of my gaming time), and if I had money, and time, I'd probably buy them all.

If I got a 3DS I'd realistically get around to maybe a handful of them :P But still worth it to me :)

Yeah, there's finally enough games I'd play to make it worth owning one. Though I still prefer my Vita over my 3DS.

Yes, Nintendo has sold me. Unfortunately, I don't have the money yet. I really want to play Fire Emblem Awakening, Mario Kart 7, and Super Mario 3D Land. I also am looking forward to Pokemon X and Y, and Bravely Default.

It was growing on me then I came to my senses.

But i guess with Layton Azran, Bravely Default and a new Zelda will go way ahead of anything DS did in its whole life time
