Except the 3DS is just a sub-iterartion like the PS4 Pro and Xbox One X. Just like the PS4/PS4 Pro and Xbox One/Xbox One X are in the same ecosystems, the DS/DSi/2DS/2DS XL/3DS/3DS XL are all presently for sale in the same ecosystem.

The 3DS being able to play original DS games is touted as a backwards compatibility feature. And you cannot play 3DS games on a regular DS. They're not in the same ecosystem at all.

JEECE344d ago

No. Stop with this nonsense. We know you don't actually even believe it. That's like saying the Ps2 was a sub-iteration of the PS1 becasue they were sold simultaneously for awhile and the ps2 played Ps1 games. Your argument fails because the DS can't play 3DS games.

But you can play 3DS games on 2DS. It's no different than Pro and X. Both play all the same games one just doesn't have 3d.

Switch sells 10 million "oh wow, Switch is outselling the PS4 by a landslide!" The PS4 ACTUALLY outsells the 3DS " meh, it's fake news for these reasons that I'm about to pull out of my butt"

@dcbronco The 2DS is not the vanilla DS. It is the 3DS hardware without the 3D screen technology.

The 2DS and the original DS line are not the same thing at all.

This is why Nintendo consumers are so confused, they don’t even know what console belongs to what’s generation...🤦🏾 ;‍♂️

This person most likely thinks the Wii and Wii U are the same...😂

DialgaMarine343d ago (Edited 343d ago )

No. Pro and X are the same as New 3DS. 3DS line is it’s own generation, otherwise it wouldn’t have its own software. That’s just a lame excuse to discredit how well PS4 is doing.

You are just flat out factually wrong.

Saying the 3DS is the same as DS is like saying the PS4 is the same as PS3 or the NES is the same as SNES.

You are a bit misinformed.

I suggest googling some data to see what I'm talking about. We all mess stuff's all good, but yea it's not the same at all.

Two different systems, but because of similar name some think the same.

I'm happy for Sony, but not that happy. That's a little strange.

The PlayStation brand will always be the true leader of traditional console gaming industry. Leader critically, commercialy, cutting edge technology, new game design, innovation, ground breaking storytelling, 3rd party games, first exclusive new IPs, etc etc.

Septic. Bow down to the Father of Gaming!

Septic344d ago

Lol how am I trolling? Haha you kids 🤣

WeAreLegion344d ago

On an unrelated note, I miss Goozex. :/

Felsager343d ago

Septic, just shut up.

You obviously are jealous that we made a better choice (PS4) than yours. So grow up and stop being so salty. Get your PS4

georeo343d ago

I don't comment that much, but dang seems no one likes you here. I see people talking about you a lot. What happen?

BIGBOSS08343d ago

Shut up and go ask your daddy to buy you a ps4.

a home console beating a portable in japan is pretty good.

saint_seya344d ago

Didnt beat 3DS in JP, is worldwide sales. Total amount of sold PS4's in the world surpassed 3DS

zivtheawesome344d ago

OH YOU'RE RIGHT! i feel like an idiot now.

Uken12343d ago

Still impressive.

But certain regions support certain products more. United States people buy shit like Madden, South Americans and Europeans buy shit like FIFA.

This gif is timeless, but still very appropriate. Congrats to PS and the community.
