Gamers often look at a consoles library before deciding which to buy: does the 3ds have the best variety?
Does the 3DS have that diverse of a library? Most of the titles I see are either RPGs or something Nintendo published. I mean, I certainly believe the PS2 / 3 / Vita have more in terms of diversity.
it is. i wouldnt believe that the vita is anywhere near as diverse as the 3ds. the 3ds has genres that make genres say: "that's an actual genre!?". definitely not as diverse as the ps2, closer to the ps3 just not as hardcore. imo. i want one really bad.
you.. want me to list genres..? ?
Yes. What are the new genres you're talking about?
are there actually some good JRPGs on it? never heard of some amazing ones on 3DS. Other than Zelda i dont see what is worth it, but i might be wrong cause tbh i dont know much about 2DS library
@legion: th-that, that was more like only a joke tho...
The VITA lacks the "sim" genre (Fashion/AC/HM/RF on Nintendo) but I think the 3DS lacks more fighters, higher budget action games, racers and shooters.. maybe non cartoony sports too. Since quality can be very subjective, it can boil down to software and hardware sales as a more weighty statement. 3DS surely takes the crown with that.
ps2 has been around a lot longer though. For only being here since 2011 the 3DS has a lot of games worth playing.
3DS is definitely diverse; the Vita is as well, especially if you add in backwards compatibility for both platforms.
You can play PSP games on Vita?
Digital ones, yes. The Vita can also play certain PS1 classics.
Digital PsP games yes.
Nearly the entire PSP library is available on Vita, digitally of course. I can't think of any PSP games that are not available on Vita that I wanted to download with the exception of Valkyria Chronicles II (and even that can be put on PS Vita, but you have to do it in a runaround sort of way)
@admiralvic @AznGaara I see, Cheers. +1
Nowhere near PS1, PS2, or SNES libraries. It's a good library, but the original DS still has a better lineup.
If i have to choose, which handle to get is 3ds . Best gaming library so far. Vita is alright what saving vita right now, is ps plus.
i chose the vita bc of the power, oled and dual analogues, plus a lot of my favorite franchies. but if i had to pick a top 20 list of vita-only games, the list'd probably not make a full 20 i can recommend tbh. just around 20, probably a few more, if i were to include ports. i still love the thing, and its like an early ps3 as far as quality vs quanity atm, imo.
Yes, PS+ is a major reason I haven't ditched the VITA but I still prefer the system over the 3DS since I'm not too fond of most Nintendo offerings.
The only 2 games that intrest me on 3DS is Bravely Default and Fire Emblem.
i want it for Kid Icarus: uprising, zelda lbw, harvest moon NL, animal crossing nb, pilot wings, mario kart, the yoshi game comming out, resident evilR, personaQ (most impotantly), plus to try a lot of the Jrpgs/rps and platformers that look pretty good. nano assult actually looks amazing, like an intricate super stardust.
For handhelds it definitely is imo & for consoles its the ps2 imo.
I loved the PS2!
I don't get the question...is he asking out of all current handhelds? Consoles? Or all time?
Not really, "best" is subjective. I'm no longer interested in Mario, no longer interested in Zelda... From what I've heard, Bravely Default becomes incredibly tedious during the second half of the game, forcing you to fight the same bosses every chapter. The only game I'm REALLY interested in is Rune Factory 4, which is cancelled in Europe. And I can't import because of region locking. It certainly has an overexaggerated library.
PS2/PS3 have the best gaming library IMO.
Yes, no question - regarding the 3DS having the best gaming library. 3DS games coupled ability to play existing DS games on the same console/handheld, that AND an already good Virtual Console selection of games...yes, the 3DS is currently thee console/handheld to purchase if you don't want the wait for a large and current selection of games.
For me 3DS is one of the best handheld gaming system for all ages..
JOke?? Should i list games from other platforms? Should i post scores from metacritic? Ds, psp have better libraries. Let alone ps1/ps2/ps3/snes....
At this point in history, the 3DS doesn't have a single First Person shooter. There is only 1 even confirmed to be in development and it's a port of a DS game that's only coming out on the eShop. First Person shooters were voted the most popular gaming genre by Game Informer a couple years ago. You cannot call yourself diverse if you don't even cover the most popular genres. The 3DS is built for Japanese people, women, kids, and nerds. Western men are left a little unsatisfied at this point. Hopefully someone like EA or Ubisoft remedies that later this year, because we know the only thing Nintendo has planned for the system has you chasing butterflies or something
