Many gamers will be neither here nor there about the 3DS and that’s understandable. The DS has been revolutionary both in its popularity and the way developers have conquered its limitation with creative flair. It’s not however a technical masterpiece in and of itself. Long time gamers out there will own a DS with a screen so scratched from overuse you can barely see what you’re doing, the chances are though that you’ve used your DS less and less over the last couple of years. So why should you upgrade to another DS, with a bit of a gimmick and a hefty price tag? My knee jerk reaction to the £230 price tag was “But I could buy a proper console for that!” Having now been to the 3DS preview event I know that buying the 3DS is buying the future. It. Is. Amazing.
