I don't think you can play Monster Hunter 4 on a phone can you ?

For anyone interested in emulating DS games on android, DraStic works really well

All this"why would anyone buy this" is a bit strange......remind me? what is the current state of 3DS emulation any device other than a 3DS console?

Or are the people asking this not actually sure what this is? as using "DS" to describe it makes me think they might not realise what they are talking about....

Ohh, and to actually answer the question of who buys it.....the answer is 52 million people, and more than triple that if you combine it with the original DS.

So it's quite a few too many people to say "who". ;-)

I thought the 3D was a reference to the level of 'D'amage that this unit does to children's eyes on a scale of 1-3.
I must say that when I had a go I s#it myself thinking a sprite type goblin thing was coming out of the screen - woooah

Ha ha!!! They may have to change the meaning of the "D" to your much more accurate definition. :-)

Although, the "New 3DS" (Brilliant name once again Nintendo, way to make anyone but avid Nintendo followers have absolutely no idea what you are selling - see "Wii U" also for better example of how NOT to name your product, have it fail miserably and then abandon it like it wasn't ALL your fault) is a massive improvement in the sense of the migraine inducing 3D of the first 3DS console.

It was better yesterday with their 20x points scheme as it would have meant £28 back in points

Thanx just ordered 1

People who hate mobile games and there crap controls, Love Nintendo games and I can use my phone for other things

Bashstreet

I don't think you can play Monster Hunter 4 on a phone can you ?



Or any other 3ds game

Tactile controls. **** touch screens.

can you get candy crush for 3ds though?

Yeah because flappy bird is anywhere near the depth of a Pokémon, Monster Hunter, Zelda or Fire Emblem game.

Whoops - I didn't mean to start this level of debate. I was simply stating the obvious that these are good for ages 2-8 in terms of entertainment but will require the user to wear glasses for the rest of their life. Btw if you are still playing on one of these older than 10 then you will always be playing with one of these - and of course yourself as you will be living with mom and dad forever

This isn't 2012.

The 3d has now been stabilised and many don't even use it.

Who in the right mind would buy a Nintendo!? They are the absolute worst for gaming. My Samsung Galaxy S2 would be much better at gaming. Nintendos are the worst of the worst, so boring with ridiculously stupid games!!

Were you dropped as a baby? Or were you just born stupid?

The ignorance of some people here is astounding!

Oh dear I am slightly older than 8 (about 30+ years older), don't live with my parents (own my own house & married). And I love my New 3DS XL. OK it may not have Super Hi-Res display but it does have proper tactile controls, excellent 3D and Zelda and Mario games that easily give 40+ hours of high quality, in depth gameplay. I have DrasticDS but it just doesn't compare. But then what would I know as I have only been a gamer for over 30 years

Are Nintendo still alive, wow

All these negative comments are by people who have never own this console or previous models. That reminds me i got two more worlds to finish on Super Mario 3D Land

This might put some peoples noses out of joint but are there any good backup and playback mechanisms for this console yet? I gave up on my standard 3DS fairly quickly because unlike my DS Lite there was no easy way to carry all my games on one cartridge so it was either carry a bunch of them or be stuck with one all day. The day I stopped using it was the day I lost my Mario Kart cartridge and it wasn't so much having to re-buy it that annoyed me it was losing all my 3 star records etc.

Dropped as a baby but I've grown up - unlike the baby game players

What's the point of having 3d if no one has it turned on - eh?

brilly

can you get candy crush for 3ds though?



You can get Pokemon Shuffle which is free to play and very similar to Candy Crush,

However that's coming out on Android soon too.

That's the whole point of the 'New' 3DS, it now works really well and is actually usable.
