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.

I still play my 3ds cause I don't have a switch yet:(

I still play my 3DS regularly because there are a few of my favorite games that I can’t get for switch, for example Animal Crossing and Professor Layton.

Nintendo wants to still make touch screen games that's why
MagicalMusic34 (1 month ago)
Sure do still play my 3DS. Love the thing. Also, I spent like $500 on it so I ain’t about to waste all that money! :)

It was a stupid decision to buy a 3ds XL should’ve just waited

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 second topic 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). ^-^
Matthew Tran (2 months ago)
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 $300 haha
Jaime Mariscal (2 months ago)
It is simple. Not everybody is rich and decides to get a switch for 300$. C'mon, 3ds is half the price, great games, and the games are like 40$ at it's max. While switch makes it's max 60.

At some point we need to let go of the past and move on. Or else we would still be on the NES and the idea of SNES is mind blowing.

Rumoster279 (3 months ago)
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

Nintendo still has a lot of money to be made from a plethora of 3DS games. A new "DS" console will help keep that pipeline open as much as possible.

M B (4 months ago)
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
Fennec Besixdouze (7 months ago)
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.

Brad K (8 months ago)
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.

Photon (10 months ago)
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.

I think you should re-think saying "canada & northamerica" since canada is in northamerica. And by the way you're right, I dont play my 3ds again.

Darkone539 (10 months ago)
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

There needs to be a new Rune Factory game on the Switch at some point. I still play Rune Factory 4, Pokemon, etc. It's even better since Silver was brought to the vc.

Dude, everyone has or had some type of a DS. Of course they will keep making it as its such a great item. Also its a portable console (smaller and lighter than Switch) which means games on the go. PS It has backwards compatibility with old DS and Gameboy (which are digital I believe) games

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.
Reicconn (1 year ago)
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.

did everyone forget about the XDS what place will that have with the switch they said it could play wii u games and is also portable thats why i am questioning how long the switch will last
Kyle Kilgore (1 year ago)
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

Rudy Acosta (1 year ago)
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.
Max Dogy (1 year ago)

Darkshoe (1 year ago)
The Switch did not come to replace 3DS, Nintendo is traditional and always has a portable and an active console. For me, 2DS is a great opportunity, I'm in a country without official Nintendo representation and the price are good.

J_ Accel (1 year ago)
the reason it's good because almost every 3ds breaks via hinge and this muthafucker most likely will be fixed the main problem with the ds family. I've had every ds and all broke via ONLY hinge it's retarded and also there's a bsod( black screen of death ) issue where it powers on but only shows the backlights on 3ds (all but instead new 3ds has a blue screen) with this new 2ds xl , it'll be the last chance to prevent all these problems. also the circle pad can be broken too easily happen to me in smash...anyways it's not me being "rough" I take care of my shit case closed buy the "new" 2ds XL.
