    Thinking of buying a 3DS...worth it?

    I currently have a black DS lite. I'll be keeping it to play pokemon GBA games.
    But there are some games for the 3DS that I'd really like to play. Is it worth it to buy one now? Or wait?

    I'm also thinking the new pokemon games will be for the 3DS, and I don't want to miss out on those.

    Well black 2 and white 2 are for the reg ds.
    Probably next gen will be 3ds. but I doubt that will come soon, maybe in like 2 years. But personally I don't really like the 3ds. When you try to play regular ds games on it. the graphics are worse. they become blurry,which sucks. I mean I have a friend who has one and would gladly lend to me to play one game, when the game I'm looking to play comes out. But if you want it to play say 1 or 2 3ds specific games, I wouldn't get one. I prefer my dsi. Had it for over 3 years now and still looks crisp, and works like new.

    The new Kingdom Hearts will be for the 3DS, not sure if it's out yet.

    the pokemon black 2 and white 2 might be for the 3ds, i've read a few things that sort of hint that way, namely the alternate formes of thundurs, landorus, and tornadus, and how you catch them, something to do with 3d ar cards or something


    but i have a 3ds, got it the day they lowered the price to 140? i forget, anyways, i got it so i could play starfox 64 3d or whatever, and also for zelda, ocarina of time, i ended up returning starfox to get my money back, it sucked majorly, zelda, i hardly play it, i think i have played it like 3 times since i got it, but if you like the 3d aspect, go for it, might find a few good 3d games, but also remember, only 3ds games will be in 3d, not any ds, or ds lite, or dsi or any of those types of games

    The only reason I'd play a 3DS would be for the new KH game, but I've heard they give a lot of people headaches after playing for a couple of hours so I'm not a huge fan. I have a DS lite and I love it, pokemon black and white are incredible and 2 is coming out soon :3

    uhm yeah, after reading some more about pokemon b2w2, they will be for the regular ds, at least for japan for now, and if it's like that there, it probably will be the same elsewhere

    and yes, if you play the 3ds on the 3d mode for an extended amount of time, it does give you a headache, but fortunately, you can turn the 3d mode on and off with a slider thing, so you can make it all the way 3d, or only a little 3d or completely off

    Honestly, I feel like if you buy one it will probably be something you barely touch and only play once in a while

    It's only $140, and if you have the disposable income to buy it, get it. It's an investment that will last a long time. Look how long the DS has been out, and they're still pumping out games for it.

    If it is to play Pokemon games, then it is TOTALLY worth it!
