IGN has made a top ten list of stuff they think the 3DS needs to stay viable in the coming years.

10 - GBA & SNES VC Games. One of Nintendo's biggest ways to compete with iOS on the digital front, is with their backlog of classic games, so SNES & GBA games would be great leverage.

9 - Miiverse. It's great on Wii U, and it'd be great to get that cool community feeling on 3DS.

8 - Intergrated Second Circle Pad. The lack of it just limits how complex 3DS games can get.

7 - More Colors. Japan has loads more than the west, & introducing more would only up sales.

6 - Nintendo Network ID's. If your 3DS breaks, you need a way to transfer all your data.

5 - Non Gaming Apps. YouTube & Skype would work wonderfully on 3DS (and the 3D offers a way to watch YouTube in new ways).

4 - Original Core Zelda, Metroid, & Pokémon releases. This one is pretty self explanitory.

3 - Western Third Party Support. The support it's getting from Capcom, Tecmo Koei, ect., is great, but to thrive in the west, they need to get the likes of Activision, EA, ect., on board.

2 - Cheaper eShop. eShop has some good content (and the Mario games are worth $40), but the pricing is a bit off putting when compared to prices on iOS, which is also filled with quality.

1 - Better eShop Design. The eShop is needlessly confusing to navigate, & not as user friendly as digital shops such as the App Store.

I feel the opposite way... The App Store confuses the hack out of me while the eShop is just fun for me to navigate.
And NNIDs will come with Miiverse.
Plus we really, really don't need double analog sticks. If we do then we need the L/R Z buttons. I thought we sorted that out with the 3DS XL. D:

At this point, there's no reason for this. So many have already bought the 3DS that releasing a different version would offset them :P

Not another one of these! I agree with some points, like GBA and SNES eShop games but those will come in time. As for the 2nd Circle pad, Really?

More colors? That shouldn't even be in the top ten. Especially not ahead of GBA/SNES VC and MiiVerse.

The eShop is as awkward and confusing as the AppStore. The only difference is that the eShop never closes itself at random times.... At least not yet.

Ok, you know they were reaching when 2 systems' worth of Virtual Console games and Miiverse, something that was confirmed for 3DS by Nintendo a while ago, are on the list.

Honestly only half of these are really "needed" in any real way. The rest are pretty blatantly "we read complaints on a message board once!"

And seriously numbers 1-9 is "stop pretending region locking is a good idea".

it's more about 3DS being successful rather than being better, I assume.

Yeah, they said they're things they think it needs in order to stay viable.

BTW, I didn't rewrite their article word for word (obviously), I just summerized their main points.

Exactly, and the only way to get better is to be successful. It's like math guys!

I agree with all the things listed. And honestly, I don't think the app thing is much of a concern, I think they just mean they want the eShop to be better organised, not for it to get the same apps as on iOS.

Probably better to read them in their full context.

I have to say a lot of this is common knowledge - apart from the 2nd analogue stick. It isn't going to happen, IGN.

Thanks for posting the link (I'm on my 3DS, so I was unable to copy & paste the link).

Inside-the-box thinking that just can't imagine the possibility of gaming without dual sticks.

I think its a bit too late for the 2nd analog which should have been included as standard from day 1 imo but oh well, definitely agree that eshop is way too expensive though, I don't even check eshop any more and have no immediate plans to buy anything from it, steam and gog.com have been getting my money instead with there proper sales not the half hearted attempt at sales like on eshop.

there's nothing that's certain... of that you can be certain

With Nintendo being lenient about the Wii U shop and devs setting prices, there is the possibility of extending this to the 3DS as well. We may see sales sooner than expected
