Take my money!
Unless you're a collector/enthusiast, I see no point of buying this since the "New" 3DS consoles are just around the corner.
Yeah I'm with you. This NES version is for pure nostalgia/collectible action. If money isn't a concern I'd buy it for sure, but I'd rather wait on the new model with new buttons and joysticks.
The packaging alone makes me want to throw money at it. Guess I'm nostalgic
I am guilty of the same my friend it looks sooo tempting!! But that persona 3ds though....
Sadly, you should have revealed this BEFORE revealing new 3DS hardware. Why would I knowingly purchase an inferior product (that most who are interested probably already have) as opposed to something that is going to be released in the near future that I know is more powerful? Great item, terrible timing. I'll pass
Or better yet, why not make this for the NEW 3DS?
I'm going to go with No. The Super 3DS is right around the corner but I'll admit the system looks great so if it wasn't for the S3DS I would say yes.
I don't like it but the packaging looks really awesome.
I like your avatar lol
Does it come in new?
Controller design at the top. lol
Hahaha! I laughed at that myself its that box that gives it that extra punch to the nostalgia.
They should skin their WiiU instead.
I think they did it better with the NES themed GBA SP. This ones alright but the interior design is just so bland.
Not seen the interior but yeah they should have put the NES controller on the inside in some form.
It's literally just grey with red buttons
If you really need to play smash bros buy a 2ds, get new 3ds when it comes out.
Could've been the New 3DS and more people would really want one.
The retro nes 3ds is nice. Only thing is that the "New 3DS" is around the corner. Whi nintendo has slightly upgraded everything. I really hate the fact that they are approaching the handhelds like the iphone is being treated by apple. Except people who are still on the fence on getting a 3ds get jipped by the practices.
I'd absolutely love one but why they couldn't have waited until they had the NEW 3DS XL's out, hey ho maybe they'll do a SNES version for the new ones ;) specially as they are borrowing the coloured buttons ;)
The box art is better than the system itself! The system just has a controller on it? Why not make the outside look like an new and the inside a controller?
