It's time to say goodbye to the console which kept Nintendo afloat
Nope 3ds is immorta it will never die , just kidding.
Amazing library of games, but the hardware was a bit all over the place. Controversial 3D (which I liked) , a 1000 different models , one analogue stick on the original model, low resolution etc. The games were what made It absolutely brilliant. It has a library that matches any other Nintendo console. But now the Switch is here and it's much better than the 3DS and WiiU combined.
How is 3DS nearing 8 years and the premium model is still expensive as it is?
because it was still selling up until the Switch came out. Why would you lower the price when people were still buying it?
Because the Switch has been out for almost 2 years and 3DS sales have dramatically declined
Not like it matters when people are buying 2DS
3DS only sold a little over 3 million last year. That’s the lowest amount it ever performed in its lifetime. It’ll sell even less this year. You make that low point sound like it’s still flying off shelves and is still high demand. Something that old shouldn’t be still be $200 at premium. If Sony or Microsoft drop their base consoles to $200 this year, itd be hard for Nintendo to further continue justifying that price point
Developers are still bringing games out for the 3DS so I think it'll survive for a few more years
Maybe 1 or 2 years before nintendo say goodbye to 3ds
RIP Had a good time, but once i got my switch at launch it was locked away ever since I don't go back when new system drops, now if the switch was only connected to the tv i would of still used it....but switch do both and do it well so there was no need to keep the 3DS alive, it died for me the day i went to Walmart and came back home with a switch so the 3ds was never to be touched again. Can't get rid of it because it was a gift, i never get rid of gifts.
If only the 3DS games were on switch I would have kept it but sadly the 3DS still have them.
