wow the end is coming quicker than i expected. sad news but good news because i think it shows nintendos confidence in the switch

follow your heart <3


It shows that people who want a 3DS now buy a 2DS instead of a 3DS. I never liked the 3D effect that much when it works fine and it doesn't make my eyes and my head hurt (and it doesn't happen often that it works fine anyway) I notice it only for a few minutes then after that I just get used to it and don't even see the difference with a traditional screen anymore. I have a New 3DS XL because back then it was the only one with SNES virtual console, but now I guess that New 2DS can run SNES games too so I would buy a New 2DS if I had to choose now.

This is how I expected it to go. Nintendo is going to quietly start fading out different versions of the 3DS. The new 2DS XL is probably the last version of the console and it will probably be the last to go. But probably not until early 2020.

I have New 3DS and keep 3D to minimum, there is other things too that are better than in original 3DS.

It all started from Game&Watch.

It's kind of strange that a system whose original idea/main gimmick was 3D will no longer have any models that actually use it. Sounds like it might even be signaling the end of the 3DS's lifespan.

just your average Nintendo fanboy

I wonder if this has anything to do with it: in my corner of Europe, handheld game popularity isn't that high in general from what I've noticed. It's hard to find much of anything for the 3ds or even a 3ds to begin with (I had to hunt all over town for a New 2DS and finally found a computer store that had exactly one of them, and I don't live in the middle of nowhere either). Not much online either unless I use Amazon, at least for something that isn't a very popular game. Also noticed games here tend to be more expensive than the eShop anyway, so I usually don't bother with physical copies unless there's a special deal going on. No big deal for me, but it could be a deal-breaker for a parent buying one for their child since it's not easily accessible at a glance.

I liked the 3ds too...

And my thoughts of it over my 2ds...

If people say Nintendo consoles are bad, ignore them. They are diverse handhelds
