Why You Should Not Buy A 3DS

The Nintendo 3DS is an amazing piece of hardware. Not only does it up the processing power in Nintendo's line of DS hardware, but it also brings with it a new online system, StreetPass, SpotPass, and AR compatibility. Oh, and you might have heard that it does glasses-free 3D as well. There are tons of features in Nintendo's newest little handheld, and its recent price drop to $170 might entice you to pick one up this holiday season. But before you bust out the charge card, there are a few things you should consider. Here are five reasons why you shouldn't pick up a Nintendo 3DS this fall.

Why such articles should stop, and haters should hate harder.

What amaze me is that the same people who got pissed about the ps3 doom article in 2007 (and rightfully so) are now bitching about the 3ds and how it's dead on arrival.

What happened to "give it time" "it has potential"???

Well, I'll just wait for the "potential" Kingdom Hearts Dream Drop Distance (gotta admit, that's a clever use of the word 3D) 3DS bundle.

Till then, meh. Too much stuff to buy to shell out for a Mario, KH and MGS3-less 3DS.

edit: Can't wait.

all iknow is if people actually sit down with one and play it and also check the features and play with them, they would see that its actually a very good hand held, people say it has no games, i say bull, i have 6 games at min and have had fun with ALL of them, i think more people will see that as the price right now is penny, even if you have to save for a while.

Like you can talk Charizard. You're one of the biggest trolls here.

Anyways, I do feel bad for early adoptors of the 3DS, but like I've said before, after the next iteration (3DS Lite) and it has a larger games library then this thing will sell.

Here are five reasons this article is stupid.
1). Every company puts out new iterations of hardware. How many PSP's were there last generation? How many iPod's are there by now? Exactly. And has it not crossed anybodies mind that the Vita will probably be in the same situation by having tons of hardware updates? Use your brains people.
2). The fact that he's mad because it lasts 4 hours with 3D on anyway is stupid. How many people are going to use 3D when they're walking down the street? I wouldn't on my 3DS or my Android once that comes out. It's just dumb. I think 6 hours is enough time for someone on the road. Plus most cars have outlets now too if you do need a charge.
3). M-Rated Game? Splinter Cell, two Resident Evil's, Metal Gear Solid, and more will come. Wait untill TGS's new announcements to start judging it's first year of games.
4). 3rd Party Games? Really? Super Street Fighter 4, Resident Evil Mercenaries, Metal Gear Solid, Revelations, Final Fantasy, Ace Combat, Mario and Sonic, Tetris, Cave Story 3D, Driver: renegade, Ridge Racer 3D, Asphalt 3D, Packman and Galaga Dimensions, Tekken 3D, Rayman Origins, Monster Hunter, Tales of the Abyss, Madden, FIFA, PES, DOA: Dimensions, Samurai Warriors and more.
5). The 3DS offers alot more than 3D and at the same price as what a DSi used to cost. I think it's a good value for someone that would never even use the 3D. It has Spotpass, Streetpass, Circle Pad, Motion Control, AR Games, Cameras, MP3, eShop, Netflix, Mii's, Nintendo Video, Friends List, Web Browser, and a ton more. Just because your not on board the 3D train doesn't mean you can't have fun with a 3DS. I think I just proved my point.

I fully agree, but I would add in... I love the irony of #4. Nintendo stepped back so 3rd party titles could shine and they didn't. Naturally now Nintendo is releasing all the titles we should have had, which is now a problem?

Jourdy2882690d ago

Crappy article is legit, but crappy.
Seriously, it was awful. No M-rated games? Um, seriously that's not what'll make a console any better, unique gameplay, interesting stories and games that are actually any good will.
