So I've been thinking whether I should buy a Nintendo 3DS or not. Some of my friends are saying that it's a rip-off while others say it's worth it. I never brought a DSi...(can't trust China)
Can I hear your opinions? Should I buy one or not? (I have a semi-broken DS Lite...)
The 3DS is first of all, not simply a DS with 3D. It is not a 64 bit system, and the graphics are quite good, with or without 3D. The 3D is admittedly a gimmick, but you cna turn it on and off at will, and looks pretty cool.
The game selection is a tad limited now, with a few good 3DS games for it (Mario Kart 7, Super Mario 3D Land are the only two original first party games) but lots of games are lined up for release this year, like Resident Evil Revilations and Kid Icarus Uprising. Also, all DS games are compatible, as well as DSiware all on the eshop. The eshop by the way, is Nintendo's best online interface, and has a better lineup than retail.
Streepass is great, since you can exchange content and gameplay records with othe 3DS players, and spotpass downloads sweet sawg while you have it in sleep mode.
The system has got to be the best console for most content predownloaded, since you get multiple apps (music/camera/chat system) and games like AR cards and the like.
The system is well worth your money, and the system can always get new firmware, like how it added the eshop, 3D video recording, and soon to be DLC.
