I was thinking I should get a 3DS, but I'm not sure if it's really worth it. I was looking foreward to playing some of the remakes of older games, and seeing what new stuff they put out for the 3DS, but I'm not sure if I'm willing to pay $300 to play games I've already played. So if anybody else has a 3DS, what do you think? What are the ups, the downs, should I get one, or save my money? Thank you for your time.

Best Keep your concience as clean as you can, or charma will come with a blade in it's hand. It will strike all those who seek to gain without giving, and spare all of those who are weak and forgiving.

Dude, the battery is crap. Besides, it's the first model. Wait for the second one that will be cheaper, better battery, smaller, etc. Save your money or buy a PS3

I say wait on it because the battery stinks, but I've read that a third party is working on a better battery so there's that. Also, outside of Super Street Fighter 4 3D, the games library is mediocre at best, and down right lame at worst so wait for better games. And let's also see if the price will come down as well cause you could buy a console at that price.

I love the 3DS, I have one right next to me, and it's amazing. The AR games, camera, and FaceRaiders are all awesome in pack activities. The games are cool too, I have Asphalt and SSFIV, and the effects, graphics, and overall enjoyment is completely great. Well worth the $250.

I would get it, it is very promising, but I would buy the 3DS and then wait for the better games to come out, like the remake of Ocorina of Time in June, but it is worth the $250

The 3DS is a very goood system but yes, the battery dies very fast, i played the super street fighter 4 for it and it shocked me because it had the same graphics as the 360 so yes wait for the next model with a battery that can keep a charge.

absolutely not. It's not even the 2nd best handheld of the 21st century.

The PSP 3000 is worth more than the 3DS
The PSP-NGP will be loads better.
I prefered the GBA and original DS to the 3DS.

Why?

Because it messed with my already bad vision.

I borrowed it from a friend for a week as a trial. I will not be wasting money on it myself.

TheOmegaDragon :

I'm a fan of Nintendo, but I disagree with your statement. I think that this system is a flop, and I'm not afraid to make my opinion on that known. Being a fan doesn't mean you can't admit when something is bad.

That said, while I am a fan of Nintendo, I am also a Sony fan (Probably more of a Sony fan honestly). Sony's handhelds and consoles are better.

Silver- Use 300 bucks on a PS3 with some good games. That's my own reccomendation.

From what i've heard, the 3DS sucks if you use glasses or contacts, as it gives you a headache within 5 minutes. If you have 20/20 vision, it kicks butt because it doesn't give you a headache.

Either way, everyone isn't kidding when they say to wait for newer models- these things are enormously expensive right now, just wait about a year for the price to drop and then snag one, that's what i'm doing.

Never ever get the first release of a system. Even if they sit there and work out every kink, which most companies don't, there will still be some bugs that will be fixed in later releases.

Wow a lot of news, and info has come around since this thread was first posted, I don't know I never noticed before, but definietly get a brand new PS3 with that money and wait for the 3DS to go down in price. If you can get a PS3 for the amount it costs do it! Great game library, and it's a Blu-Ray player, 3D games, and motion controller. #DS is cool but I would rather buy the Playstation Vita as my next handheld since Gameboy Advance SP.

The 3DS is very worth it, but the initial game lineup was terrible. I would wait until better games come out, like this holiday, and see if the 3DS goes down in price before then. If you want to go the extra step and don't mind waiting a little longer, wait until the 3DS Lite (or whatever it will be) comes out.

It has been announced that the 3DS is suffering horribly in sales and is selling less than half under the DS. Unless they really start putting out some great titles, the 3DS will not survive. Nintendo sure isn't doing that well lately, is it?
