I haven't heard or read anyone hating on the 3DS much at all since the year it launched.

The 3DS has a strong line-up of first and third-party games already, and this year has especially been a blessing for it. However, it will continue to get even better, with a portable Super Smash Bros. contributing tremendously.

The DS is/was my favourite console. The 3DS had a slow start with little support. The XL made some key hardware changes making it an better all round console. I love my XL. I haven't played on my PS3/360 for ages due to the impressive quality software, that has been released since the start of the year.

The only people I've ever heard speaking negatively about the XL, are people who got a standard 3DS - pre-XL release.

What ever you are saying, is not especially clear to me. The folks who started with a regular 3DS have an advantage in terms of perspective; I would be more inclined to hear their opinion, personally.

EDIT
@kkslider5552000 you've said a lot of quotable things, but now one is in my sig!

Miyamoto on his desire to focus more on the (hard)core Nintendo fan.

[The casual] attitude is, ‘okay, I am the customer. You are supposed to entertain me.’ [...] and to me it’s kind of a pathetic thing.

Ok, I'll simplify and clarify:
The only time I've ever heard anything bad said about the '3D DS' - Is when people with a standard 3DS try to pick faults with the XL.

I haven't seen to many people dogging the 3DS. Most of it's software gets good ratings and the hardware is very solid. I just don't know where you heard about all these people who hate the system.......... Untitled

Very hard to fight with this... but I love my XL more. <3

As for people hating on the 3DS? Are they by any chance people who live under rocks or in caves? Because I haven't heard anyone hating on the 3DS, except for 2011 when it had its slow launch period which faded after a few months.

The 3DS is a brilliant console, there are very few titles I'd call shovelware, except for the very obvious ones on the eShop and the licensed games of course.

I retake this topic because, for what I've seen that the hate against the 3ds has been degenerated very badly in the last 3 days... VERY BADLY

I think it has to do with Nintendo lacking a clear business direction as opposed to anything hardware or software related.

One word 2DS. Combine that and the so-far flop of Wii U and people are back on the hate train with Nintendo.

The 3DS XL pixelated? Man, i love that screen. It's like little balls all over the screen, and it is a thing of pure artwork for me.

Hey there. I've seen that many people hate this console, and seriously I don't get why, it has so many good games. Now let me give an opinion on the games I've played on it.

-Zelda Ocarina of Time 3d: Awesome remake for an awesome game (and more accessible than the original thanks to the touch screen options), 5 stars;
-Star Fox 64 3d: good remake for an another great classic, too bad that it lacks online modes, 4 stars;
-Super Mario 3d Land, a really good platform game even if is a little bit easy in the first half, 4.5 stars;
-Mario Kart 7, my favorite Mario Kart game by far (expecially for the designs of the tracks), 4.5 stars;
-Kid Icarus Uprising, THE BEST GAME EVER MADE. 5 stars;
-New Super Mario Bros 2, useless, 1 star;
-Paper Mario Sticker Star, despite it's flaws I really liked it, 4 stars;
-Luigi's Mansion 2, a great sequel for a very good game, 5 stars;
-Fire Emblem Awakening: great story, great gameplay, 5 stars;
-Animal Crossing New Leaf: a really nice game to pass time without too much worries, 4.5 stars;
-Mario & Luigi Dream Team Bros.: great gameplay, and very good humor, 5 stars.

And those are only the games I've played, because it has many other great games like Professor Layton, Resident Evil Revelations (even it's not an exclusive anymore), Kingdom Hearts Dream Drop Distance, Shin Megami Tensei IV and others. Also there are many other games on the way like Pokemon X & Y, Zelda A Link Between Worlds, Layton VS Phoenix Wright, Bravely Default and Monster Hunter 4.

IMHO a console must be judged by the games it has, the 3ds has A LOT of games, maybe some are better than others, but for me only one (of the IMPORTANT games) is bad (NSMB2). This console is good, stop to say is bad.

I think what he means is that general people you know tend to hate on the 3DS because you can't play Call of Duty or a HD version of Fifa. I know I have friends who tell me that the 3DS sucks and all they do is play the same games day in and day out.

The 3DS is actually my favourite console including PS3 and Xbox 360, because as far as playability is concerned, I feel that the 3DS has much more to offer, and also has the best franchises backing it.
I'm not worried about achievements or trophies whatsoever and take more enjoyment out of playing a game like Pokemon where the collecting aspect of the game is addictive, not just playing a crappy game because they have easy achievements/trophies.

@tchaten I have owned my Cosmos black since launch and not once regretted purchasing it. Whilst there was a lull for the first 6 months for games, it has now grown to be the best handheld on the market, and for me, the best console you can buy

Favourite games of all time: Sonic 2, Super Mario World, Super Mario 64, Final Fantasy 7, THe Legend of Zelda: Link's Awakening, Red Dead Redemption, Grand Theft Auto: Vice City, Halo 3, Uncharted 2: Among Thieves, The Last Of Us.
