GR: The 3DS hit its stride this year with games from the house Mario did the plumbing for and plenty of excellent third-party offerings. Who will win this prestigious third-dimensional award?
I can't believe suckers are paying so much money for this on iPhone. I love it on 3DS though.
What's the price difference between the iOS and 3DS version? Odd that the iOS version is more expensive - usually iOS games are cheaper than their console counterparts.
The difference is that the 3DS version is something of a fixed cost, where as the iOS version is "bite size". If you only want like 5 songs, then it costs less for iOS than 3DS. If you want them all, then it costs a little under half for the 3DS. Don't have exact figures, but it all comes down to how many songs you want.
Does it really count as an exclusive if it's on iOS?
Depends on when this was decided by the site I guess. It was only recently announced and then immediatly released on ios I believe. @Obnoxious_informer It starts much cheaper, but they only give you like 2 or 3 songs and you have to buy more individually. If you buy everything for either(3DS ver. + all dlc OR ios ver. + all content) the ios version has less contet and costs more to obtain it all.
3DS got the best handheld exclusives!!
mhh dont know i got a 3dsxl last week with Tales of the abyss looking forward to Fire emblem but after that there isnt much.. or are there some good titles in the pipeline? on my Vita though there are far more games im looking forward too ^^
Monster Hunter Animal Crossing Luigis Mansion Bravely Default Smash Bros Professor Layton Shin Megami Tensai 4 and Soul Hackers I dont really know what there is to look forward to on the vita that I cant play on my ps3
Etrian Odessey IV, Animal crossing New Leaf(sometime next year...@.@). And I am just gonna throw out Pokemon mystery dungeon because it was just announced today/yesterday. Devil survivors soul hackers is coming... I want to say March... Monster hunter is March. And there is also Luigi's Mansion... I know I am missing at least one coming soon... hmmm...(Edit: Rembered one; Ace Attorney 5. EDIT Edit: CastleVania!! I think that was the one...) @hahaBravely Default isn't confirmed, though I am almost certain it will be. And I don't see SB releasing this year.
@Haha123 "I dont really know what there is to look forward to on the vita that I cant play on my ps3" Well that might be your preference but mine are games like Tear Away, Killzone Mercenary and Soul Sacrifice which are games that you cant find on the PS3. :) But we all know what kind of a person you are. "Vita is in the same position as the PS3 when launched People waiting for price cut People waiting for exclusives not ports 10 million in first year is wishful thinking #4" "Already doing better then the vita... but I thought the vita/ps3 combo would destroy the wiiu?.. #8" "GOTY! Finally the vita has a system seller to destroy the 3DS all hail the epic grafxx and dual sticks!!! #1" Ha ha ha @cpayne 93 " Smash bros will be good but I would rather have the console version." I find it funny how people (like Ha Ha) act like ports are terrible for handhelds when the 3DS is getting a port of Super Smash Brothers and on top of that there's no cross buy feature like on the Vita which means that if you want to play the game on both Nintendo platforms you will have to buy the same game twice.
@Master Smash may have a cross buy like setup. For all we know, the 3ds and WiiU versions will be completely separate standalone games that can interact with each other. So making comments like the ones you made don't make sense yet: because we know nothing about it.
Eh, the only one of those I'm looking forward to is luigi's mansion. Im getting freedom unite on the vita because my friends have it, none of my friends have a 3ds, and thats a game you need friends for. Smash bros will be good but I would rather have the console version. On Vita i want Soul Sacrifice, Tearaway, and Killzone Mercenary. Can't play those one the ps3.
Best is either kid icarus, re revelations or paper Mario IMO. Paper Mario rocks it's better than expected and I love t e sticker concept
It's obviously Kingdom Hearts. I loved it so much.
I hope that Square brings over Bravely Default, so that it may be a contender for this award in 2013~
