What does this mean for the Switch? What is the reason behind creating new hardware for such an old platform?

The thing is Nintendo was already competing against itself with the 3DS and Wii U most of the games on the Wii U had ports or sequels on the 3DS already. Now that the Wii U is dead, the Switch and 3DS are doing their own things.
I just rebought a New 3DSXL ($140 used on Letgo that came with Mario Kart 7) I had considered purchasing a New 2DS because it folds and it was more affordable than buying a new 3DS from a retail store. But I like having the option of playing in 3D as it’s a cool exclusive game mode. Playing Mario Kart 7 in 3D plays super well compared to Mario Kart DS, but not as beautiful as Mario Kart 8 Deluxe on the Switch.
the ds and the wii line should be shut down asap. the nintendo switch could be up to 100-150$ cheaper or put more stuff into it, but that will not happen.
see say you have 100$
you came out with a consale that is 25$
year later you make one that is 50 $
but you spend another 25 on the old opsolet consle,
you then nincress the price of the new to 75$ but that wont do so you incress it to 100$
but if you cut out the 25$ old upgraded new version of old consale and used that to the new new one
75$ instead of 50. then you can justify the price of a 100$
as you can see keeping a dead product alive, makes new prouduct more expensive cus your wasting money on a dead motor on a dead ship that at the bottom of the ocean. in short your wasteing time and makeing public mad.
sony on the other hand, just drops that shit and moves on, so when you pay 500 for a ps4 your paying good money.
the switch is an inovation to gameing consales, and have just killed and butchered the ps4 and xbox,
and pc also puts a nail into those 2 stupied consles coffen as well
so off topic tho
over all your paying for inovation in concale, with sony or xbox, your paying for quliaty which you will never get unless you go pc
ps4 and xbox are a poor mans pc, simple its a bums computor
pc is they way to go
now if you asked me pc vs switch..... i would say your fucking stupied, you can not compair those too things. there totally diffrent.
see ps4 only has tiny tiny bit of games only for ps4 that also aplys to xbox
but nintendo has lots and lots of exlusives
and pc is the same too, with there indi games
ps4 xbox= pc clones
switch= its own thing
as you can see, if your a bum poor person, then you must ask your self
1 do i have lots of friends
2 am i alone all the time
if you answer 2 then go with ps4 or xbox , bum pc
if you answered number 1 then go with a switch
number 2: all games are boring when playing with friends, theres no actual fun, and is only ment to solo entertain only as seen with bf3 and cod, as well as meany fighting games. the system is ment to be for solo play only.
number 1 nintendo is ment for ethire sigle or multiplyer. not solo player
a solo player is someone that plays singale player games, or online gameing
multyplayer is or a party of people playing on one system
mario tenis is fun to play with your friends, mario party as well . and smash bros
zelda is great if your by your self, pokemon is fun by your self or with friends.
see nintendo has ps4 and xbox beat in socilzing gameing due to all there games are built to be like that, while ps4 and xbox, are cheap pc and pc well you do not see 2 people siting at a pc desk on a tiny monitor playing street fighter do you, or dbz, or raceing, or bf3. no you see only one person playing it with a head set on, there friend is on there pc at home playing with you
those that do share and play on one pc, well by all means, your a rare fucking breed of gamer.
overall. if you dont have money, even if your alone, get a nintendo product, you wont regreat it later on, even if you are all alone, some day you may have a friend over, drinking beer, and what more fun, playing bf1, or playing smash bros with your friend while drunk and laghing..
I started gaming again in February of this year after a 3 year break! I dusted off my old 3DS (the one from initial release with the ambassadors games). ^-^
Then I found out and took interest about other 3DS models that were actually pretty cool like the “New” 3DS XL bcuz I was basically under a rock the whole time I was in school. LOL
I wanted to upgrade my handheld experience to something up to date, but I couldn’t afford a switch because it’s price tag (and the games are about $60 each plus tax). I also had a collection of DS and 3DS games just waiting to be played again. So I got the N3DS XL. (The bigger screen was a big point for me too).
Around that time, I discovered what Monster Hunter was and I’ve been playing MH4U ever since! Ive logged almost 130 hours on it and barely scratched the surface of the game haha!
I also got my friend addicted to MH4U and introduced him to the 3DS line up with the original 3DS as well as the “New” 2DS XL, (which he fell in love with immediately because of the lower price and sleeker feel, while retaining the processing power and screen quality of the N3DS XL). ^-^
Oh and I effectively paid $100 for a brand new N3DS XL and spent $50 total on miscellaneous accessories like case, screen protector, skin, travel bag, etc.
So $150 was more attractive to me than $300 haha
i mean i was literally playing Majora's mask my 2ds while watching this video and i'm saving up to buy a switch next year because i just like Nintendo and some things i just like to play on a smaller screen like stardew valley even though it's on the switch i decided to get in off steam because to me it just feels better and things like animal crossing i have it on my 2ds but it might come out on the switch but i probs won't buy it on the switch because iv'e always played animal crossing on a ds system
I'm not really bothered by high end graphics, I brought my original 2ds to replace my ds and I liked the fact it didn't fold so no wires to gradually break and render the upper screen useless. I'm also a retro game fan (and big collector of 16 bit games: master system, mega drive, snes, ps1, gba, psp, ds - collect them all ) I prefer pixel games to 3d. The switch currently does not interest me and it would take a much lower price and a new animal crossing game to change my mind. Everyone is different and amidst the comments I just wanted to show my support for the older generations of consoles and handhelds.
Well I actually have a reason.
Ive always wanted a 3DS because of the portable console and its amazing games on it but i would never get one because my dad hated the 3d.
He said it would ruin my eyes, so im glad nintendo released it because now i have one now and im so happy
This is idiotic analysis bud: Nintendo does not strategize the Switch as being primarily a portable handheld. They've stressed this time and time again. So dropping support for the 3DS line or slowing down their pursuit of game development ont he console would literally be Nintendo exiting the handheld gaming market. Nintendo is dominant in the handheld gaming market, leaving the market would be idiotic.
There is plenty of space right now for Nintendo to support 3DS as their portable and Switch as their main console for years to come. Both devices, in terms of both hardware and software, are selling gangbusters right now. They are not hurting each other, if anything the success of the 3DS has given people confidence in the Switch, and newcomers to Nintendo who have been absent since the Wii days and have come back in only recently are enjoying Nintendo so much they might be looking to pick up a 3DS as well. Nintendo has hit a groove with these two lines, they aren't cannibalizing each other at all, and Nintendo would have to be clueless to drop support for the 3DS right now.
A friend's 7 year old has put his 3DS through the wringer and it's still ticking, they bought it used and yeah it looks pretty rough but still works just fine; a Switch would not have held up. There is definitely a market, and will continue to be, for a less expensive but more robust portable that the DS lineup offers.
It is sort of a struggle especially when there is a portable and console to get games or both systems and I you have only one you can miss out on a lot. That is why I thought the switch would solve this problem because it is a hybrid. No more splitting developers, no more splitting consumers, and it is maybe cheaper or both since they don't have to worry about buying 2 things and buying games for both and developing for both and buying 2 developer kits. Not to mention, the 3ds is long lived, living through part of the wii, all of the wii u, and now part of the switch. I believed the switch would solve the problems I mention above but nope I guess not at all.
The 3ds family was 52% of Nintendo's income during the last shareholders report. Just let that sink in. Of course they aren't going to let it die. Phased out? Maybe but it's not going anywhere for years.
It's also not a bad thing. The ps3/Xbox 360 got games well the generations moved on. If they do move on it'll be the same situation.
Why buy a 2DS XL instead of a Switch? Let’s see here....
- Half the price
- Huge library of games
- More compact/portable
- Already own a PS4 for gaming on a TV that is wholly superior to a Switch (better performance, HDR, tons of excellent AAA games)
- Never played Zelda anything so I have no nostalgia itch I’m dying to scratch and plenty of good Zelda games for DS and Wii if I want to jump in
- No virtual console and no Netflix app yet for Switch
Is it just me who really wants at least the pokemon eShop virtual console releases to be on switch, I want to play on my much larger screen whilst sat back with my controller than looking at a relatively tiny screen with less comfortable controls in my opinion
The 2ds xl is not sexy its ugly
As 💩 the new 3ds xl is better they just knew the 3d was just to expensive they wanted to make something cheap so they would of lose 💰. Plus kids will be find
With the 3ds it's just bessnes reasons
I don't understand people asking for 3DS/DS backwards compatibility for the Switch. Those games are designed for a hardware device with *two* screens and would be awkward to display on the switch screen.
I actually sold my 3ds when the switch came out, not just because of the gamestop ad, but because of the fact that no, I do not need two mobile consoles. The 3ds library has gone downhill and all of the games seem to just be playing one silly excuse of a leap-frog.
Seriously don't understand how people hate 3D on the "New 3DS"... games like Zelda Majora's Mask, Super Smash Bros and even Pokemon Ruby Sapphire (Fuck you sun and moon for having no 3d) look so damn beautiful with 3D enabled. Yes, I hate low framerate, I play pc games in 165 fps on my 165hz monitor for god sake. Ye sure it is a good product for someone who is below 6 years old and doesn't own any of the consoles but the "New 3DS" is so much better... It has glorious 3D ffs
I knew I was going to buy a switch as soon as I got my hands on one and with that said I bought Zelda before I bought my switch. I also bought two pro controllers and now I have a switch coming with MARIO Kart.
I understand that this video is considered old at this point but I got a switch recent-ish. Since then I've brought both my ds and switch literally every where. I was in the middle of playing alpha sapphire when I got my switch and haven't played it once. It died in my bag and I charged it only for it to die again. I have a charging cord for it so if I want to play it bad enough I can but I haven't
Didn't Nintendo say that the switch won't in any way replace the 3ds/2ds Nintendo is doing what they always have one home console one handheld console, plus I feel like the switch was supposed to be more for home " but the fun doesn't have to stop at home if you have to go on a trip and dont want to wait to play that game you have waiting at home then just take it with you" or some thing of that nature. so I feel like they want you to have that what like 3 or so hours on that home console but then have that actual handheld for more long portable travel like air travel
With Zelda, disagea 5, Mario kart 8, and a few smaller titles like Minecraft, and binding of Isaac (just bought it, first time ever playing it and must say it's fucking crazy addicting), and now soon to be Splatoon 2, I'm fine with the software choices for now.
pokken comes out in September as well, followed by Mario in October.
that's pretty dope.
I actually really appreciate the new 2ds because I don't use the 3d feature at all. So it'd just be more money spent on a feature that I'll never use. I certain I speak for a lot of people when I say that I don't use the 3d feature. But who knows... I could be wrong.
