By now most gamers have heard the news. Nintendo has announced the new 3DS is coming out relatively soon. The big question on everyone’s mind is why didn’t they announce this at E3 and what does this mean for the original 3DS?
It means it could have a bundle with New Super Mario Bros. 2 included!
it means its finally time for me to buy one
It means that it's going to be another form of the 3DS but with bigger screens.
it means nintendo is doing its usual 5-6 revisions a hand held generation, so people who dont own one yet should wait till atleast the 5th revision
It means they love Capcom that the release a platform, similar to how rerelease games, with slightly better screen size and whatnot. Seriously, they should stop this trend, lest they get that same 3DS backlash in which a lot of people thought it was another platform upgrade rather than a successor to the DS.
it means the annual handheld release nintendo does?
What's a 3DS?
Seriously though... It is now what it should have been at launch. Previous screen was so small. This could end up in one of my boys hands.
It looks pretty cool, big 3D screen.
I'll wait for the 3ds xl purple. Also I wonder if they fixed the crashing issue with harvest moon for the 3ds....?
"Gamers everywhere are asking where is the second analog stick? If Nintendo had added this there would be no doubt that the system would be a must have." This means that Nintendo dont want to screw those people who have a 3DS. People rage about an early price cut, and the ambassador program was created. Now imagine if Nintendo started selling a console, bigger, better battery, two sticks, L2 & R2 (remember the addon has two extra buttons. But this only means nobody really cared about it), and for a better price, only one year later? Even a Nintendo fan like me would be really mad. Not only that, but the second stick is an option. I dont know if there are more, but I only know about three games using it. If Nintendo put it on the new model, the developers would start using it more, and then, it'd stop being an option, so, again, people with old 3DS wont be able to play games designed for dual sticks, they'll have to buy the addon, or buy the new console. The "must have" line would be deadly serious, in a bad way. And man, that would be a punch in the balls for many wallets around the world, taking in account that the 3DS is selling very, very good, despite what haters say. Another proof the console is doing fine, even without the second stick. So, if you put the second stick, it wont be a revision. It'll be a new console, with exclusive games designed for it. And that, for Nintendo and for every other company, would be too much.
It means the Vita will now outsell the 3DS like it was supposed to lol
