OK. I SUPPOSE YOU'LL BE RECOMMENDING A VITA, BECAUSE SCREEN RESOLUTION IS, LIKE, MORE IMPORTANT THAN GAMES ON A HANDHELD CONSOLE, YEAH?

Simply cannot knock this console and the selection of games on it, brilliant!

Yes, I got this for £127.99 back in May. The Yoshi design is fun, and despite what some may think I don't mind. I wish it was green all over, but whatever, even now it's a good price. This is definitely a real step up from the standard 3DS.

The 3DS has shared a similar fate to the DS. In a sense, zero to hero. Both consoles didn't have good launches at all, but the Nintendo DS eventually became a big seller and had an amazing library of games, despite being much less powerful than the PlayStation Portable. The 3DS emerged from the rubble and is getting a brilliant library of games. This might be a surprise to boneheads like madmaxpayne, but the Nintendo recently sold more 3DS units than the PS4 or the Xbox One. Now, the PlayStation Vita... oh dear, oh dear. Same fate as the PSP—history is repeating itself.

This is what separates Sony and Nintendo. Want to know why Nintendo kicks **** in the portable market? Sony spends a lot of money on hardware development, but in terms of software it pales in comparison to Nintendo. Sony relies on third-party games. Even with portable consoles, people usually play games indoors. So, why would Steve buy Borderlands 2 on the Vita for a higher price when he can get it on the PS3 for a cheaper price with better graphics and controls? Many of the Vita's AAA titles are multi-platform. You see, console games are meant for people who sit down and spend a lot of time in a single sitting. Sure, the 3DS has games like this such as the RPG "Bravely Default", but many games are pick-up-and-play.

Regardless, Nintendo were smart to continue with the clamshell design (there is the 2DS, but that's more robust with children in mind) and it has the added bonus of effectively making any game pick-up-and-play. This is because closing the "clamshell" instantly puts the game into a sleep mode, then the player can put it in their pocket, bag, etc., without a fear of damaging the screen. Now, the main point is the amount of Nintendo's in-house exclusive titles. Nintendo always produce high-quality games that were made for the intended platform. This is why there is a different version of the new Smash Brothers. If anybody thinks Nintendo games are kiddy, you haven't looked far. There are various titles suited for different demographics, but if you're an open gamer you can enjoy all. If Nintendo games don't tickle your fancy, Nintendo has strong relations with various developers. By the way, I'm a PC gamer and don't play any home Nintendo consoles. But for any ignoramuses who will instantly throw insults at the 3DS, using a great Capcom 3DS exclusive, I shall say...

For the sake of knowledge the vita has a sleep mode you just press the lock button. I've had ffx on sleep for says it's great.


Now I love me some ds action too but since I've gotten my vita it's surprised me how good it really is.

Think I need to grab another 3ds though at some point and since I love yoshi and don't have the money for this it makes me sad on the inside, great deal op.

But... But... IGN said the 3DS is doomed to failure. How can this be the biggest selling handheld out there at the moment? I'm confused.

That article is even older than your HUKD account, and you've been here for 2 years+. In addition, that's only 3DS, not including the XL or 2DS.

When I got my 3DS XL last year i was shocked at first how bad the resolution was in comparison to a tablet. But I got used to it and the games are great, therefore it does not bother me so much anymore. And yes,I love it that I can just close the lid and quickly put it away.
