Hi /v/ wondering if getting a 3ds is worth it. I had the original ds when it first came out and I stopped using it after ~5yrs of having it and never got back into handhelds. A lot of the games look really good but I want to hear your opinions. Don't have a Wii u and always liked Nintendo.

I see it generally for $150 for regular and $180 for xl. Is xl worth it? Also any good sites to buy this?

>$180 for xl
I got a refurbished one off the nintendo site for $90 in 2014. Works and feels like new
>>
>>324322367
Fuck no. Only has a handful of good games you may not even like.
The library is pretty terrible too. It's a bunch of carry over sequels without the quality and ports.
>>
>>324322491
Worth the money?
>>
>>324323003
On the bright side though, you can hack it and get all of the dozen games worth playing.
>>
>>324323010
Only if you homebrew it. The games aren't worth the price and a lot of the good ones are regionlocked.
>>
>>324323063
>dozen
Eh...Maybe before they ported half the library like Revelations, Ace Attourney and Azure Gunvolt
>>
>>324323292
You can also inject GBA VC games, so that's something at least.
>>
>>32432314
Being a poorfag...
Don't listen to this faggot OP.
If you can buy it OP then do it.
>>
>>324323292

if you install cfw on your 3ds you can install and play jap games
>>
>>324322367
Way too expensive, get it cheaper. The console sucks and the games wont last you long.
>>
>>324323063
Is that something where Nintendo can patch it so it doesn't work? Would online still work?

>>324323003
I can think of 5 off the top of my head I'd play

The games are stay a bit on the expensive side.
If you're a new buyer, it's either the 2DS or a "New" 3DS.
2DS if you're strapped on money.
N3DS if you want stuff to load moderately faster. Just note with the N3DS there's no charger that comes with it.
If you got young ones that pry over your shoulder, go with the N3DSXL.

eventually they'll patch it so you can't do it if you update to the latest firmware, but if you've already downgraded you're golden.

Once you've downgraded, you'll use an emunand. Nintendo can't tell the difference, and the emunand can upgrade or go online like normal

>>324323697
pirate all the software

So you have to buy a charger as well?

>>324323557
I see it for $125 refurbished. That moderate? Also any sites worth checking other than like amazon or just going to my local vidya store?
>>
I'd say so just for the emulation.
If you have a DS2 it should work with no tinkering.
>>
>>324324201
Only for the N3DS. Ninty's logic is that everyone already has the original, so there's no point in adding it. In other words, they wanna Jew you even more.
You could also find one on craigslist with a charger for less.
>>
>>324324662
Yeah on their website its $125 for n3dsxl and they have a charger for 5. I guess I'll go for it

The rest of the games I'm interested in are DS games or some shit. Like the Ace Attorney games and so forth. I kind of regret buying the New 3DS. I really just wish Vita didn't have jewy memory cards and more weeb games.

Would you recommend the vita over it?

Idk, man. They both kinda suck in their own little ways to me. lol.

I know that people on here say that Vita has not games and 3DS has a shit ton, but I'm not sure I feel that way entirely. I don't really give a fuck about Mario, Zelda and the rest of the first parties. That may be what keeps me from fully liking the 3DS over the Vita, but there's also the graphics and using the stylus. With Monhon4, I like the game, but hate the controls. It just makes me wish for it to be on a console. Same with Xenoblade. I don't get that with the Vita unless the game is trying to utilize backpads. The memory cards are a jew from hell and back on the Vita, though. There's no excuse for it and it's really insulting to consumers. It's hard to look at the price of them and know that they have actually been CUT from what they used to be. Most of the Vita sales on games are digital (of-fucking-course), so you have to delete your games a lot unless you get a big card for a large chunk of money.
>>
>>324323360
why would someone go out and buy a 3DS for GBA games if they have a computer, smartphone or tablet they could easily play them on?

Why would I buy a 3DS if I could buy a DS and a flashcart if I wanted to play GBA games?

Why are you so retarded?
>>
>Hi /v/ wondering if getting a 3ds is worth it.

Right now it is, but tomorrow it won't be.
>>
>>324328270
Fuck, I don't know. It's just another option, so there's more to do besides just pirate 3DS games. SNES also works pretty well, way better than the PSP's emulator.
>>
>>324322367
Get a Vita. Has a bigger library, better specs, and is far more moddable with CFW.
>>
>>324327968
3DS owner here
the "3DS has games" comes from the following titles:
>Animal Crossing
>Pokemon
>Pushmo, Crashmo & Stretchmo
>EO
>MH
>Mario kart

There's Kid Icarus too but I am absolutely positive that it's just a meme because it has the worst controls of any rail shooter i've seen
>>
>>324328330
Because of the inevitable patch?
>>
>>324328586
Yeah, I'd be really surprised if 10.4 didn't come out tomorrow to fix everything

Still I'm glad I got my 2 3DS' hacked, shits glorious.

People always post the thing where Sony CEO says that they aren't doing Vita games anymore or whatever. But that's only for FIRST party titles and AAA shit. Like, you'll still get weebshit, indies and maybe small budget first party. I like the weebshit, but I don't know any Japanese at all. So anything I get has to be localized or whatever. People also complain about "ports", but there are some of them that are ports from PSP. I never owned one, so that doesn't bother me. I also like having the option of playing something like Hotline Miami 2 on a mobile platform instead of console if I so choose. That's one thing with 3DS. If there is an indie game that I want that is coming out, I pretty well can *expect* (within reason) that it'll come out on Vita around the same time as the PS4. 3DS seems to get them a lot later or never.

>>324328270
>Why would I buy a 3DS if I could buy a DS and a flashcart if I wanted to play GBA games?
Well, I didn't know about chink spyware cards until later in having the NEW 3DS and I didn't think that I'd care more about DS games. Thought 3DS was going to have a bunch of games that I'd like coming out.

>>324328542
Not really into any of those except Monhon. Mario Kart was fun for a little while on Wii U. Never played the *mo's though.

I honestly love the Vita more. I barely touch my New 3DS XL anymore except for the Jewish bunny game.
>>
>>324327329
Vita sucks mainly because of the memory cards and no recognizable games for the masses aside from ports. There's no advertising for the west other than websites.

3DS peaked when 2014 came. After that, nothing else that I cared for came to the system other than Mirai DX. Hacked the 2DS so I wouldn't deal with the region lock.
>>
>>324328542
Generally like those franchises. Also dig kirby

Idk, man... If you have an updated liste, then I'll save it. It's just what I had seen and saved.

>>324322367
Do it. There's a fantastic library of games, and it's an amazing handheld to boot. I went xl because my hands are big, and I'm very pleased with it.
>>
>>324329743
I was going to prove you wrong but the only big ticket game of 2015 was MH4U.

The rest of the releases were ports/remakes (Majora's Mask, Xenoblade), mobile freemium trash (Pokemon Shuffle, Jew Bunny Arcade) or shovelware (Etrian Mystery Dungeon, Codename Meme)

Not the person you're talking to, but what the fuck is up with that? If I wanted to play that shit, then I'd just use my phone. Shit is garb.
>>
>>324329769
>what's your reason
I like a lot of the games it has, even though some of them are ports (but really good ports, though). Not only that, but PS1 and PSP games are godlike on the Vita because of the customization options. It puts the 3DS to shame because Nintendo only has NES, GB/GBC and the Sega 3D Classics on the eShop and doesn't bother to put anything else on there. I don't hate the 3DS, but I feel it's pretty lacking compared to the DS. Most of Nintendo's output have been lazy sequels and remakes. Only thing I'm really looking forward to is the Dragon Quest VII remake.

Not into monster Hunter, so there was literally nothing else going on for the 3DS in 2015.
