About five months ago, I had bought a new game for my Nintendo DS Lite. The problem was, it wasn't where I had left it. We tore the house apart looking for it and all this time later, still have not found it. I know somebody who probably stole it, but never mind that...
I was going to get a new DS, and since the 3DS is probably the newest one, I was thinking of getting it. The only thing is, I'm wondering if it's really worth it. Some games are awesome in 3D, but others are just not meant for it. I read in my GameInformer some good reviews, and some not-so-good reviews.
I wouldn't recommend 3ds either. I don't know about you but I wasn't impressed by the 3ds when I went to look at it in the store. Honestly, I didn't see any bloody difference. (I mean I didn't have 3ds and regular ds side by side running the same exact game, then I think the difference would be more obvious) but just from looking at how it looks and remember what the games look on my DSlite, I honestly don't see what all the hype is about.
I have an old DS (the fat one) that the touch screen has stopped working on. I am in a similar situation as I am unsure whether to get a DSLite, a DSi or a 3DS. The DS Lites and DSi's I have seen are around $100-$120, while the 3DS is $250. I am not sure if the extra $100 is worth it. Right now just to be able to play the games I own I cannot see spending the extra money, but I know I will kick myself if in 6-12 months when the 3DS has a larger library and some game comes out I really want, but would have to drop another $250 to play. Right now I really can't justify the 3DS, as there is no game I feel is a must have, so the DSi is looking like the best option, and if that killer app comes out, I will just hope I am in a better financial situation to procure it.
Plus the money saved over getting the 3DS could replace my Gamecube that got stolen, I have been wanting to play through the Resident Evil series again.
