    The 3DS

    So with the Switch coming out, does this mean the end for the 3DS? I only just bought one!

    switch is a home console not a portable one, it has some portable features but its going to be more limited, they are trying to thin the line between home and mobile gaming but the way the switch is designed the line will still be present.
    3DS still has a huge library of 3DS and backwards compatible DS games to explore, and I am told good things on the eShop though I havent gotten many games form there myself currently.
    the next generation of console nintendo may design to be fully portable and also connect to a TV but the switch will have limited powers on the go, though it looks pretty good for party games and things with low processing power.

    Supposedly not: eurogamer.net/art…tch

    No.

    Will be 3 years at least before its stop selling new

    The 3DS has a huge catalog and will continue to have game releases but I believe it won't be refreshed any further and eventually replaced by Switch. Pokemon Sun and Moon are being released for Switch which is clear tell-tale sign coupled with the push to show Switch being mobile.

    I can't imagine people carrying the Switch about with them like they do the 3DS. No matter how much they tried to portray this in the announcement trailer!

    People carry iPads, phablets and kindles just fine. It'll likely be equivalent to a 6-7 inch tablet. No biggie.

    The 3DS will outlive the WiiU as it's a success with millions of happy customers. Switch will come but it won't kill off the 3DS.

    I think Switch could be a flop. It's not really a home or portable console which could create problems. It will need some killer titles to have some impact on the public not just Wii U ports and the odd AAA title.

    They've only just released a new version of the 3DS?
