The Nintendo 3DS sixth months on

Nintendo Universe writes:

The Nintendo 3DS is an intriguing handheld gaming device. I had planned to get one, but did not pre-order a unit, nor did I think I would buy one during launch week. After talking to some of my friends online who had picked up a unit during launch, it really sparked my interest and I purchased a unit the Saturday after it was released.

six months on and still bored with the machine. I wish I never got this thing.

I think this is probably an indicator of your original purchasing decision and expectations, not the device itself. Why is it that a gamer's own decisions never factor into discussions about dissatisfaction of a system? Could it be that we're sometimes not willing to admit that we made a decision without thought of our own habits and desires?

I refuse to tolerate this "its the company's fault" attitude to systems. Its bullshit. The reality is that no one knows your gaming habits and expectations better than you and you had access to a ton of information out of the gate. If you aren't enjoying the system, its your own fault. If you insist on placing blame, cut the crap and put it where it belongs. You're the one who decided to make the purchase, not Nintendo.

So, in your opinion, a person is not allowed to criticize anything that he or she has purchased?

Unless DA_SHREDDER edited his comment, I don't see him blaming Nintendo for anything. He just said he's bored with the machine and wishes he never got it. That's a valid opinion.

People can criticize all they want. If their criticism doesn't make sense or doesn't inform others it should be taken with a grain of salt. Shredder's comments reveal a lot more than a problem with the machine and paint an unfair picture to those who may want to adopt.

Is it dead yet?

It had a rough start but its going to dominate the Holiday Season.

Not in Japan ; ) The vita will most likely dominate there. In the rest of the world, it will dominate though.

ronin4life3564d ago

Monster hunter tri G 3ds is releasing just a week before the vita in Japan.
It is also #4 in a recent famitsu poll of most wanted video games, a list in which only 1 vita game ranked in the top 25 (The new Persona 4 game, which I don't think is even releasing this year. Someone please verify this.)
I don't think it will dominate as much as you think. Of course, being a new piece of tech, it will still do incredibly well, regardless of how well the 3ds does

Knowing Nintendo's business practice history and specially now in bed with Capcom.... I am waiting for a 3DS + Lite + i + XL + redesign + price drop & decent library of available games.

meganick3564d ago

Do you always wait for redesigns? Every gaming machine gets redesigned these days including consoles.

miyamoto3563d ago (Edited 3563d ago )

yup ...i was very pleased with my PSP 3000 its slim, light, has TV out and loaded with Skype.
Same with PS3 slim...i waited. and am now satisfied.
I would do the same with PS Vita.

are you insane a redesign sure but a price drop? its already cheap as it is i expect no more then a 30 or 20 dollar price drop if it comes to fruition next 2 years

miyamoto3563d ago
