Don’t Buy the Nintendo 3DS For the 3D

A few reasons why you shouldn’t buy the Nintendo 3DS simply for the 3D. (3DS, Culture, Nintendo DS)

True, though I'll admit it IS an interesting feature but indeed not a mandatory one, games will look fine either way.

However, I really want to see what Zelda will look like popping out of the screen (same goes with MGS.)

Zelda > MGS

I disagree
Infiny  +   1645d ago
That's a matter of opinion, likewise, i also disagree. =P

Sorry little infiny, but I am stating a fact.

Some people might not like the same things you do so you need to respect other people's opinions.

Sorry "little Charizard", but if you want to "state a fact" then you must explain it, because you are just pointing out your opinion.

And like i said, preferences of games (and Hardwares.. lol *note that i am being sarcastic here*) are just a matter of opinion from person to person regardless of sales, reviews or whatever.

But let's be more "rational" then, if you want to compare a game by its "facts": no game is perfect. And honestly? Newer Zeldas didn't "catch me" like OoT or Link to the past, just like newer MGS didn't have the same effect on me like Snake Eater.

All of them are great games, but which one is better, is just a matter of opinion.

What a awkward comparison, but few games can stand up to snake eater so i have to disagree. You believing your opinion to be a fact says alot about your ability to think rationally.

There is no fact on your end , only BS .

A fact would be that both are genre defining , and manage to reinvente their genre each new game . But it stops there .

The rest is personal preference

its not even in the same league
not even story, action, character, place, year, technology, speech, music, type of boss, the way you play, puzzle, game play , how you finish it,

The 3D is just the bonus, i want it for all the others features. And Pokemon Gray3D lol.
Jio  +   1645d ago
Even if it didnt have 3D I would still get it, the features and games are amazing.

Cant wait for Snake Eater 3D!

With backwards ability of old games and we all know the 3DS is going end up with big 3rd party support as all nintendo handhelds do. It's going be a scrapeing for pennies year.

Who honestly cares about the 3D aspect to it? It's a bonus in everyone's mindset, but I honestly believe what has everyone interested in buying the system are the awesome graphics, the analog stick being implemented, and the amazing game line-up.

Ocarina of Time, Resident Evil, Metal Gear Solid, Star Fox and more are what pull me into buying the new handheld.

3D is just a nice add-on that everyone's throwing a fuss over now due to the side-effects. Nothing changes for me.
Infiny  +   1645d ago
Indeed, i completely agree with you.

I buying it for the games, not for the 3D (it's just an add-on);

It is now a "fact" (that's for you little charizard) that the 3D can give you headaches from long uses (more then 30 min), and i will probably play a LOT more then 30 min on 3DS on a roll, therefore, 3D will not be a "must buy" for me, but the games will.

Finally. People start to see things my way ^_^
Redempteur  +   1645d ago
i'm buying it for "professor layton vs phoenix wright ".
supersonicsaga  +   1645d ago
You really think that game is going to be localized anytime soon? Do we even have all of the Layton games here yet?
Redempteur  +   1645d ago
well i'm busy with other games so i'm not waiting ..

so games are system sellers and this consolde 3ds will be bought by me when some games will be available ..simple as that ..

it's not like i HAVE to buy it now .
Leonesaurus  +   1645d ago
Oh shit! I totally forgot that was coming out for the 3DS! O___O Yeah, I DEFINITELY gotta pick that up too!!
Gen0ne  +   1645d ago
3D MarioKart anyone??? Nobody's buying it for that? Shit, I'd kick an old lady's shin to get my hands on that.
Neo Nugget  +   1645d ago
Everybody has their game that they want to buy a 3DS for. For some it's MGS, others it's Zelda, mine just so happens to be Animal Crossing ^_^
ryan_s  +   1645d ago

i myself play handheld games for hours thats a big problem if i play it with 3d
kesvalk  +   1645d ago
