Buyers Remorse: Nintendo 3DS

Rely on Horror: "Any early-adopter can tell you that there’s nothing worse than it. That feeling that you get when you show off a new ‘totally awesome’ gadget to your friends and/or family and they kind of look back at you with a half-hearted smile and a totally unenthusiastic “That’s really cool…” (3DS, Nintendo DS)

If you purchase expensive toys for the joy of others and not yourself...well...you have only yourself to blame. Right? ;)

3DS already has a handful of great retail games and new downloadable ones every week. I think any Nintendo fan (at this point) would be thrilled with Ocarina, Pilotwings, Mercenaries 3D, Street Fighter, Ridge Racer and Nintendogs + Cats, along with DSi and Game Boy content.

Eh...I'll wait for the Pokemon Grey 3DS bundle to come out.

Watch Ninty release a 3DS Lite in a year for $199 and give it an advanced 3D effect which enables the player to get the 3D effect from multiple angles.

nintendo fans.. ok maybe nintendo fans like these games but i find them underwhelming.

ocarina was a good game, still is a good game, and i still have it. if i want to play it i see no reason to buy it again. mercenaries is uh... a minigame? a minigame that i already have on gamecube and ps3... while i havnt played the 3ds streetfighter, im gonna assume that its pretty much the same thing as the other 500 versions of street fighter. nintendogs (+ cats?) is dumb, nothing else to say about it. pilotwings and ridge racer are the games that i see as the most original and something that would make me want to buy the console, that, to me, is a pretty weak offering.

zelda and resident evil are probably the only games that im sure i would like, but i decided not to buy a 3ds for it because i already have it. also, two games? maybe four games? thats not much of a library.

theyre doing horrible on providing content for their hardware. they really need to start working on this. get me some rpgs

When the 3DS came out, everyone praised it and showered it with love. Anyone who didn't want a 3DS was an "anti-Nintendo fanboy".

But now it's several months later and we know the truth: 3DS game sales are stagnant, 3DS hardware sales are stagnant, and the 3d effect is nothing special, if we're being honest. Apparently even the pro-3DS people out there didn't believe what they preached.

I get buyers remorse on everything I buy. because after I buy it I think i could have gotten something else

I never understood why people get consoles Day 1. Obviously a console's software lineup gets better with age since developers eventually find ways to max out the consoles potential.

Why pay for a console at its HIGHEST price to get the LOWEST quality games when you can wait two years and get the console at a discount and enjoy HIGHER quality games? Seems like common sense to me.
