Sarcastic Gamer takes a step back from the 3DS hype and concludes that it is highly unlikely that you will ever need a 3DS or use it to it's fullest extent.
From the article: "I picked up the original DS at launch. I had incredibly high hopes for a console that had such a unique selling point. This was a game system that you could interact with by touching. The DS seemed to have some revolutionary properties with amazing potential. Sure, the launch games were either a re-hash of an existing product or a poorly executed, but we’re used to that. Developers needed time to get their act together, to implement the control scheme into the gameplay.
This never happened.
This isn’t a hippy-cosmic “material possessions don’t make you truly happy” kind of statement. I literally mean you don’t need a 3DS; plus, I’m happy to tell you exactly why."
