The only thing that would make me get one is if a game comes out that's only for the new Nintendo 3DS that I really want. Otherwise, I'm fine with my Nintendo 3DS.

I play AC:NL, Mario Kart 7, and sometimes Pokemon. :)

The name definitely could have been better. I would have gone with 3DSi or something, since most people already know the difference between the DS and the DSi, it would make it pretty clear what the New 3DS is. I can see it now...

"Hey Mom, I want a New 3DS for my birthday!"
"Oh, but what's wrong with the one you have now?!"
"Um, nothing, I just want an upgrade Mom!"
"Er, okay then!"
Birthday Day
"It's a... It's a..! 3DS XL?! But I already have one!"
"But, you asked for a new 3DS, and that's what that is. A brand new 3DS right out of the box!"

Okay, I'm sure that won't happen a whole lot, but it's bound to happen at some point. I can also see people thinking it's Nintendo's next gen system.

I like makin' games!
Future Pinball games!
Petit Computer games!!
and SmileBASIC games!
Waiting for Kirby Air Ride 2. One day, it will come. One day...

These two look sweet!

I wonder if the small one will have the same size of screens as the normal 3ds, or if they will be bigger.

Yeah I don’t know either.

Oh look! A Morphloggery.
Oh! eShop Gurus.

@Hernandez When did you buy your XL? You may be able to return it and get your money back.

My SD Card with the game on it is just as physical as your cartridge with the game on it.
I love Nintendo, that's why I criticize them so harshly.

I feel like there is less of a reason to get the New3DS than there was to get a DSi when that came out... Unless you just really want Xenoblade Chronicles on 3DS. I won't get Xenoblade Chronicles 3D unless the Wii version blows my mind hole.

People keep saying the Xbox One doesn't have Backwards Compatibility.
I don't think they know what Backwards Compatibility means...

Well depends, Xenoblade is a ay bigger game than anything on the DSi was and it sounds like this just going to be the first of many games that will be exclusive to the new line of handhelds.

While it sucks for the West, everything hinges on if Nintendo can get Japan to upgrade to the new models in mass which is why they're launching before christmas and with bundled spcial options. If Japan gets the new than developers won't be as reluctant to support it.

WAT!

We will see what happens, just currently there isn't as many reasons to upgrade as there were for DSi (which I still didn't upgrade). I almost wish they just called this New3DS a new generation and said it was backwards compatible with 3DS and DS. then I think developers would be more interested in it and consumers would have less of a fear of buying a new system to play things their old system could... but I guess that isn't a problem for PS4 and XBO

I have a feeling this'll all blow over like it did with the 2DS. No-one complains about that anymore.

Anyway I'M REALLY HAPPY FOR THIS

Plus it'll more than likely get a name change to avoid confusion here, New is not the Japanese word for New.

If you're following me here.

I will update this when Half Life 3 arrives. [Started 17/11/2015]

My only complaint is the second uh, nub? Whatever it is, it doesn't look very comfortable to use. Other than that, depending on when it comes out and if the price is right, I'll probably pick it up since I still have the original.

They're all technically in the same generation. The 3DS has only had three years compared to the ~5 that other consoles get. Why do you want it to end so early?

I don't want to buy a system for 1 game. I have a 3DS XL already. I know I am not being forced to upgrade, just I don't like the idea of not being able to play 3DS games because they required the extra power. If it was a new generation then I would know the new system and extra power would be used by everyone. It is more of a personal thing than any real logic.

Well the days of confusing shoppers are long behind them then......

I'm guessing xenoblade chronicles will be the only exclusive. OR they'll need to come up with a new name for it. It just seems like a bizarre move to split the install base at this point. When they have games like pokemon and probably smash bros selling around 10 million, why make new games that will have a higher development cost but will only sell a fraction of that?

Yeah, I doubt it. Battery technology tends to constantly improve, not quite as fast as processing power but still impressively. Which is why the 3DS has more or less the same power intake as the DS, and the Vita has more or less the same power intake as the PSP (there might be slight differences, but all of their batteries are 5V I believe)

Converted from Sony to Nintendo during 7th gen and never looked back.

@TrueWiiMaster I agree here and I got no issues that they shouldn't make a new 3DS. If anything, I really want to get this as it looks to be the definitive version of the 3DS line up. That said, why did they include new buttons? what will they call the new 3DS? Just New? Because that creates a problem with the 3ds users already. What is the reason that Xenoblade can't run on the original when Nintendo can just reduce the pixels to 360 and make adjustments to the graphic power?

Look man, I've still yet to get the Wii U and I really do want to get that thing, but now I gotta get this new 3DS to play the next Metroid, Pokemon or Mario game even though the brand isn't different?

btw, I can't seem to find where the slot for the SD card is for the new 3ds? Is it something where you have to unscrew it and then place it or something?

I don't think it's just about resolution. Xenoblade features big environments, large enemies, and many characters on screen at once. After watching the video, I'd say the 3DS version is already a significant downgrade of the Wii version anyway.

At the moment we have no reason to think that every future 3DS game will only work with the new 3DS. I expect the new 3DS to work a lot like the N64 expansion pack. A few games will need it, and some will be better with it, but it won't affect most games. This isn't the 3DS's successor, but an upgrade to the 3DS.

The new 3DS uses micro SD cards, and you insert them under the removable (and swappable) face plates.

That's not how improvements in battered work at all. New XL is 5 to 7, and new 3DS is 5 to 6 depending on your brightness and 3D settings.

It looks like the new 3DS will feature an auto-dimmer to help, too, automatically dimming the brightness when you're in a dark room.
