You have ten seconds to post five legitimate reasons why you still don't have or haven't purchased a 3DS yet.
>240p resolution in 2015 is inexcusable
>same old Mario, Pokemon, and Zelda rehashes
>no games I want to play
>typical Nintendo lockdown shit
>why buy a handheld at all when a phone or tablet does all the same stuff and more and is more socially acceptable?
>tfw no good 3DS games are coming out this year
because 2 of the only games I want are rune factory and SMT, which are region locked away from me. I generally don't like first party nintendo games.
maybe when a good pirate card comes out.
>Own a 3DS XL
>Bought a Gateway a few days ago and it's coming in the mail
What should I download?
Not an overwhelming amount of games I like.
Expensive as fuck games.
So. Yeah. Mostly it's money related. Though the 3DS really is ridiculously fucking expensive for the lackluster hardware. Like, what the fuck Nintendo? ridiculous.
>I said first party Nintendo games
Doesn't matter retard. You put all Nintendo games in the same bowl and make it sound like "Nintendo games" is one single franchise.
Please tell me what you don't like about each single Nintendo franchise.
After all these years of good games, you don't need anything else for awhile.
Are you a neet? Will you beat all these titles in a week?
Take your time man. Enjoy and savor these games.
>Buy 3DS XL
>A couple of months later the new 3ds comes out and is better in every way
Fucking why? Why can't they just release the definitive version of a system when it first comes out? Design oversights? Easy cash grab?
>tfw I'm unemployed
Though I'm considering getting one once I start working in a few weeks.
>implying I didn't
It's pretty shit, though. I don't like JRPGs, and the only JRPG I wanted wasn't a JRPG (paper mario). I don't go anywhere, and I have MK8 and Smash 4 Wii U, so I don't have any reason to play MK7 or Smash 4 3DS. Luigi's mansion 2 was "mobilized," and I stopped playing pokemon after gen 3. ALBW is pretty good though

I don't like any of the games, not of any kind. From someone who didn't grow up with them apart from the GB+GBA, they all look absolute trash. Almost convinced that it's purely nostalgia fags fueling this insanely shit hardware now.
Every First party game Monster Hunter Etrian Odyssey and Fantasy Life. I would say Rune Factory 4 and Zero Escape Virtue last reward but those games need to be purchased. Mainly because those two games never got sequels because of poor sales and were actually really good.
Not him. But I don't like particularly like platformers, fighting games, racing games, tactical turn based games, pokemon and zelda.
Not saying there aren't a lot of interesting 3DS games. But outside those genres and series, there aren't a whole lot great first party stuff on there that appeal to me.
I'm more annoyed with how much more expensive the revisions are compared to the original versions.
At least price it accordingly instead of charging 60 bucks for a shitty nub and some ram.
im waiting to for better piracy carts
Like every Nintendo product after the release of the Gamecube (meaning the Gamecube was the last good Nintendo console), it is a terrible piece of hardware that was outdated at launch and is only worth purchasing for its good library of games.
Nintendo would rather manufacture cheap hardware and sell it for triple the production cost than actually develop a decent piece of hardware. And the funny thing is they won't even learn their lesson after the Wii U's failure.
The gateway works fine, but it's just a bit too fiddly.
Every time you turn it on, you need to use your 3DS browser to be able to play the roms
albeit you can just use sleep mode
>when a phone or tablet does all the same stuff
As opposed to those the 3DS actually has a lot of games worth playing.
>and is more socially acceptable
I don't know which kind of shithole you live in, but here nobody looks down upon you when you play games in public, actually quite a few people actually react interested when I play on the train.
But I guess it all comes down to the fact that I actually wash myself.
Well. Being able to play decent games is one reason.
Not defending the absolutely awful hardware of the 3DS. Just, I haven't played a cell phone game that compares to a handheld console one. At least one that isn't stuff like Solitare and Mahjong.
cause that's apples and oranges.
Phones don't have good dedicated games. Just small time wasters and ports, plus it's a fucking phone made for being a phone in mind.
It's a PC verus Console debate.
All you get are some exclusives and emulators.
PCs are made for doing a multitude of things, not strictly for gaming and in that, it suffers. Consoles and handhelds were made for one thing, games. All that power is going to the game, no matter how much.
With touch screen controls. Which is the one thing more disgusting than the 3DS hardware.
Unless you bring some peripheral that makes you look like a mongoloid.
And I've already emulated games up to DS and PSP. Why would I want to do it on a tiny screen with unusable controls?
Yeah but you shouldn't leverage a purchase on one single aspect if other things also matter to you. It's not like you even are obligated to buy a system at any point in time if you don't want one.
