I’m a big sucker for Nintendo products but the 3DS was their first hand held console that I thought, wait, wtf? I never see movies in 3D they give me a migraine so a 3D games console was out of the question. I bought a DS lite years ago and I upgraded to a DSiXL a few months ago, why do I need a new DS? The DS was already in my bad books. It seems that they’ve completely thrown the idea of the seal of approval out of the window. 90% of DS games are rubbish. Their mostly iPhone ports but they charge you £20!
So anyway, on I went ignoring the 3DS. Until I saw an announcement for a purple one. That got me interested. Ugh its 3D though. I reminded myself and went back into Blissful ignorance. Then I started looking at the games. A new Zelda came out, I was pretty jealous. Then Kingdom hearts, more annoyed now, then mario tennis, I LOVED the gameboy version. Then the final straw (thats a pun), Harvest Moon, the tale of two cities. Yes the game has been remade for the 3DS and is actually a DS title but I have one word for you, Alpacas and bumble bees. SOLD I’m having me a 3DS I said. And I did.
Some people have been saying its pretty big. When its open it feels like just the right amount of screen, and closed, its the same size as a galaxy note!
