Why you shouldn’t buy the 3DS. For those who think the opposite, there will be a counter article soon.
for me no cod to launch wiht is a dissaapoiny thing
Call of duty? Seems irrelevant really here.
wait its 2 bulky? lol wb the psp that thing cant even fit in a pocket and um this is the dumb ass article i have ever read lol and psp battery aint all that better lol its low and u cant even go online with the psp only with the browser and like 3 games...
You are running low on facts. You can go online just fine with a psp, better than current DS models actually. There are hundreds of PSP games, and some of the best titles are found on PSP. As for size...the 3ds is about the same size as the old PSP. http://www.youtube.com/watc... ^ go to the 2 minute mark of that video and see for yourself. ... and of course you forget about the pspgo, which is super compact.
@Parapraxis I'm sorry, but you lost me at pspgo. Go show me those hunderds of PSP games on the pspGo. Your facts are even more flawed "sir". Honestly both browsing capabilties of the ds/psp SUCK. If you can't watch a simple youtube video on your mobile browser...then it most definetly sucks. Its 2011 man. "and some of the best titles are found on PSP." Which titles? It took the PSP "years" to create games that weren't lame downgraded ports of console titles and yearly sports games. And please. Don't flash peace walker or GOW in my face. Those titles were released 3-4 years after the psp was released. Of course the DS is guilty as well. It to took years to release those solid and deep games we love on the ds.
3ds is a lil biggert then the ds lie dude and um i said not counting browsers i was talking about online games the psp has like 1 and i think its phantasy star if im not mistaken ds pawns psp in online gameing oh and to make note the new psp is even bigger then the psp 3000 lol
LOL "you lost me at pspgo." Good, you only missed the last 4 words then. You nintendo kids are always in denial.
Excuse me? Nintendo kids??? I own "both" Sony and Nintendo hardware. I own all the gameboys and a DSLite. I have a PSP2000. I also own a PS1 and a PS2(ps3 soon to come). So don't foolishly lump me into some lame category. I've enjoyed both japanese companies software/hardware. Maybe you are incapable of having the best of both co.'s yet I'm fortunately not chained to that ignorant mentallity of yours. There are awesome games on both the psp/ds. Yet there are many lame ass games on "both" handhelds. So in closing, you sir are clearly a lame fanboy. Blinded and incapable of of cross content.
um the psp also came out in 2005. It was pretty small for its tech. Your comparing old tech to new like the online. Psp has a lot of games that support online. Also the whole aspect of buying a 3ds is in the name. 3D. 2 hours battery life with 3d on is horrible.
3DS and Ds Lite are almost same size...but I don't expect much from trolls. 3DS 5.3 inches width DS Lite 5.2 inches width DSi 5.4 inches width Dsi XL 6.2 inches width NGP 7.2 inches width and 3.25 inches height...lol!
What does the PSP have to do with this? Article is right though, I'll wait for the 2nd version and get slightly better options.
BULKY????????? its as small as the lite even if the launch lineup sucks the launch window lineup is 10 times better than the ds ever was..........animal crossing,paper mario,mario kart by the end of the year? thats incredible lol at the sony ponies
I have no interest in the 3DS because I have no interest in the current blitz of gimmicky 3D. I'll wait for whatever comes after the 3DS or better yet I'll just buy the PSP2.
because of ngpeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee! God save our gracious playstation Long live our noble playstation God save the playstation Send Sony victorious Happy and glorious Long to reign over us God save the playstation
This is just kind of creepy
The 3DS is 2 expensive plus they have to improve battery life before i will consider buying it. That said once its 150€ with an average of 8 hours (with 3D off) then i will get it.
You realize how unrealistic that is? Even after seven years, the DS is still $150, the 3DS's technology is way more advanced, yet you want it to be priced the same?
Of course it will happen. As time goes on the tech will get cheaper. So in the end it will end up at 150€. And when that happens there will be a ton of used games for sale to its a huge win for me. Besides i feel that you are paying 100€ extra just for the 3D tech.
Shitty launch linenup would be my reason.
Bulky? Have you even tried the Best Buy demo? Damn thing is as small as a lite.
I could give a rats a$$ what this guy says i'm still getting the 3ds and the ngp.
Same here, people complaining how the NGP is for hardcore gamers and the 3DS is for kids dont know what they're missing. Get one and you miss out on the other
Don't care. Shopto took the money out of my account today and my 3DS along with SSFIV 3D Edition are getting dispatched to me tomorrow. Haters gonna hate.
Im not buying because im a gamer who like hardcore not this casual crap like Nintendo dogs. NGP's for em
ur not geting one cus ur a casul gamers who only likes violent games and men that take roids and are greased up for ur likeing and only play first person shooters. or anythign that shoots
What was the whole point of this? Its not even well thought out, most of the points are irrelevant and/or unrealistic. Just a small list that makes no impact on my purchase.
and nintendogs? last time i check thats noit the only game and infact is the only casul game on release? OH anf i guess since hana montana is on the psp, psp is for lil girls
I'm not buying the 3DS until they come out with a 3DS XL and might not even buy it then. NGP seems more and more attractive the more I think about the 3DS.
Why I shouldn't buy the 3DS...Kind of sounds like an article that was telling me why I shouldn't buy the PS3. I'm glad I bought the PS3 and I'll be glad when I buy the 3DS.
First Cheatcc with "why not to buy ps3" and now techtroids.com with "why you shouldn't buy the 3ds"
so badly.why do i have to choose either one? they both will have some crazy games.
