Re: Nintendo Announces 3DS - 3D w/o Glasses!

So which would you guys recommend: 2DS or the new 3DS?

I have $40 in Best Buy gift cards and am interested in checking out some of the back catalog; I've played around with a 3DS before and frankly wasn't impressed by the 3D effect; I'm also not a Smash Bros. fan so the C-Stick nor Amiibo support on the new 3DS isn't a selling point.

For someone who hasn't owned a portable Nintendo console since the original Game Boy, which is my best bet?

Re: Nintendo Announces 3DS - 3D w/o Glasses!

You can play any game you want on the 2DS for a lot less money. That said, the New 3DS is a noticeably more premium product and the 3D is enough improved that it's possible you'd end up appreciating it.

FYI, there was one publicized restock of the $99 Black Friday 3DS after the holidays. At that price I would definitely go for the New 3DS. Otherwise, it's hard to recommend the risk at the normal price, based on your described preferences.

The screen is bigger on the XL too.

Thanks for the feedback; my girlfriend is interested in some multiplayer gaming, so I think we're going with two 2Ds' instead of one new 3DS.

I haven't held the 2DS but the XL is good for larger hands. Plus you can turn the 3D off, so that shouldn't really factor into a purchase.

Re: Nintendo Announces 3DS - 3D w/o Glasses!

Just got the 3DS yesterday. Got Picross e and Pokémon Picross. Enjoying the heck yesterday. I got the New XL. I was surprised that they're hard to find, ended up getting it at $199.99 before tax at Gamestop.

It's too big for my hands, have to play it leaning the bottom on the desk. I'd get a regular size one but you can't find them anywhere and I really don't want to pay $200 for the $99 Black Friday one that sold out 3 hours BEFORE Black Friday when it randomly went up before the announced time (not that I'm bitter ). If I could find a regular-sized New Nintendo 3DS new I'd be all over it.

Love that it tells you how long you've played games. The 3D is awesome but it gives me a headache so so far I've kept it off.
