But that doesn't mean I will lie and say that switch has a massive amazing super library to play at this time. Buying a 2ds isn't going to keep anyone from buying a switch, it's an amazing purchase to keep you occupied until switch DOES get more games.

    All I did was laid out facts of what the 3DS has over the switch right now..Nothing I said was opinionated, it's just what exists. The fact of the matter is that 3DS offers MORE GAMING and more SOFTWARE FEATURES for a lot less. Yes using a 6 years old library is the point here, you have hundreds of good games to choose from on 3DS, its age is an advantage. The switch is having a soft launch and it's widely agreed it's library is thin this year. The 3DS is already getting nice games early this year plus there will be even more. There are games that are just waiting to get localized.

    Using games switch MIGHT get, not announced and will come in the far future isn't a strong selling point. Like people have said here, when games hit store shelves that's the time to brag. Which I will brag about the switch's library this holiday and IF Mario Odyssey comes out this year, ESPECIALLY if Xenoblade 2 also makes it.
    I'm pretty late to this, but every single console that has ever launched starts off with a small library compared to other consoles. In fact, the Wii U that is slammed for not having games started off with a library bigger than any other console at launch ever. But even the mighty PS4 started with a crappy library.

    So what I'm getting at is your main argument here is that it's not for everyone to be an early adopter. And I agree. I'm not planning on being an early adopter of the Switch. But I still think the Switch is going to be way better than the 3DS. But that's just me.

    Do note I was trying to look at things from an objective view.

    From a personal view I think switch blows the 3DS out of the water. It really is so much better even if few games right now. Like I said, there's no game like botw on 3DS

    I heard switch isn't getting new shipments until April and even then they might all be scalped

    So yeah, 2ds now a definitely the right move. I still wish they would have kept the small new 3DS models that were no more than $150. Xenoblade is an excellent game and it won't run on old 3DS, also Hyrule warriors runs soooo bad in an old 3DS

    Might as well enjoy what I have right now yo :O, looks like I can't switch anytime soon

    I forget who it was, but someone from Nintendo was being interviewed (maybe Kimmy), and they asked him if everyone who wants a Switch will be able to get one right away. He said they upped production, and maybe within a few days of launch everyone who wants one could have it. Based on what he said, it makes me think they're not waiting until April for another shipment.

    you heard right. if you don't have a preorder now, you probably won't even touch one until fall of 2018.

    they even had to get rid of the demo consoles from the stores because they are so strapped for units.

    sorry man, you're going to have to wait a long, long time.

    Saw the $80 2ds's at Walmart today and they were surrounded by a ton of great games. Impulse buy price right there. Would have gotten DK country if I didn't get final fantasy X instead

    You've been hanging around Miyamoto too much. He's a pro at shoehorning things in, like you've been doing with the $80 2DS in every conversation on the forums

    Technically, you were talking about the 2DS, not the 3DS, which is about $250 at Walmart.

    2ds is exactly the same as a 3DS but in a different form factor and without the 3D. Same OS and same games

    2DS seems like cheap crap compared to the build quality of the 3DS. According to you, that matters a lot when we're talking about the Switch.

    No, the 2ds is actually more comfy than the 3DS and is pretty sturdy. I've held one and a lot people like playing on it too.

    New 3DS XL is still the best though IMO because it plays every 3DS game well plus the exclusives + SNES games.

    It's the Ferrari of the 3DS family but it's a lot more expensive than a 2ds. Nintendo should have kept the small new 3DS because that was a happy medium.

    The small 3DS itself looks so much better than the XL.

    I can't imagine myself not having a new 3DS. I picked up Hyrule warriors today and it is fantastic. Runs very poorly on old 3DS and lack of enemies and I don't think I'd enjoy it on there.

    Plus Xenoblade is a massive reason to go new 3DS route if you haven't played it before. It became one of my all time favorites.

    I was just ribbing you. Even though the C64's resolution wasn't that much worse at 320x200 (3DS is 400x240 per eye), it was only 8-bit color depth.

    Still, though, you really can't defend the 3DS's graphical capabilities by today's standards.

    I think you're looking into things too much and trying to find issues where there are none.

    To woody:

    I urge you to give 3DS a good shot man. It was never known for graphx and 100k resolution. The games are what make it great.

    You said you wanted to play a link between worlds right? If you have it then give it a go. After 1 or 2 hours you'll be absorbed and be used to it. It took adjusting for me too when I got back into 3DS in 2015 but I quickly was sucked in like I was before.

    Don't forget we're having this discussion in a thread that you created to try and prove the 3DS is better than the Switch.

    I'm an old man. I just can't get into playing on a tiny screen with horrible resolution. I'd end up having a perpetual headache. If I could play it on my TV, I'd definitely do it.

    The New 3DS XL is actually a decent size. (roughly the size of the Switch actually).

    I just listed the advantages of getting a 3DS right now. They were all true. I never said it was objectively better. From a blank slate perspective 3DS offers much more meat if you don't mind the GameCube graphics.

    Doesn't mean someone couldn't start with switch. Breath of the wild will be Nintendo's finest work and will last a long time. Plus if they already have another system then the draughts won't be too much of an issue

    Exactly. I think woody would enjoy the XL after a couple hours playing a game he enjoys. I can see the non XL 3ds's being an issue but the xl is comfy

    Or he'll be surprised to learn how small Switch is and won't buy one now.

    The trick gentlemen is that Woody isn't even wanting to get the Switch right now accept if Breath of the Wild ends up being substantially better on the Switch, which it generally is but not even by what I would consider a substantial margin. And even if he DID pick up a Switch for the reason I mentioned, he'd very likely only play it in DOCKED mode, which the 3DS most certainly does NOT do!

    Nice attempt though!

    Blah blah blah, something about dynamic lighting, and ignoring the fact that the draw distance is crap on Wii U.

    All this technical mumbo jumbo but at the end of the day breath of the wild will be a 20/10 game. Some of the best games ever don't require any more power than a Wii or a new 3DS (*cough XenobladeChronicles)

    Well it's true. Although I'm unhappy that Switch is underpowered to the rest of the home console competition, it is what it is. And since I'll be sticking with it for 4 years, I'll have to enjoy what I can from it. At the minimum, it's 1.5-3 times the power of Wii U.

    There are many games on ps4 that look like they could run on a switch so I believe there is a certain point with power where it's good enough to be able to have the freedom to make many types of games. Plus considering at heart the switch is a portable and it's the most popular mode of the system, it is a dream that it has the amount of power it does. Compare breath of the wild to literally any other dedicated handheld game before the switch. There's just no comparison on a technical and scale level

    Oh I agree that compared to other handhelds it's the most powerful handheld ever...but it's a home console.

    Though we don't need to resurrect that old debate again.

    Lol. I think I just teared up. You said pretty much exactly what I was going to say to these guys.

    While everything I listed is true

    3ds is nowhere near switch's level

    It's like comparing a scooter to a Kawasaki Ninja H2 R

    The scooter had infinite gasoline to allow you to commute from point a to point b but the Kawasaki has enough gas for about 3 miles.

    If I had to pick one to play for the rest of the year, 3DS wins easily.

    Wait how long does your 3DS last? Mine seems only slightly better then Switch's recorded times.
