DSi or 3DS?

#1IchibqnBriqnPosted 7/11/2010 4:04:45 PM
I'm thinking of buying a DSi, but the 3DS is coming out in a few months. I don't know if I should buy the DSi or wait for the new 3DS. I was realy looking forward to buying the DSi, but now that the 3DS is coming, I have no idea what to get! Buy now or wait? Suggestions?

Wait for the 3DS.

considering the DSi is just a DS remodel and the 3DS is actually the next gen handheld, id say wait for it. unless your current DS is on its deathbed. the 3DS will be able to do everything the DSi can do, and more.

I currently don't own a DS, that's why I am wondering if I should wait or not.

Depends on how eager you are. Are you willing to wait? Then wait.

I really want to buy a game for the DS, to be specific GTA CW, and in a way I am sort of eager to get it. At the moment I really don't know what to do, except think about it.

If you really want a DS to hold you over until the 3DS comes out then I'd just go to GameStop and get the cheapest used one you can find. I think the DS Lite is going for less than 100 but I'm not sure how much the normal DS is selling for.

If you really need to choose between the two though I'd just wait until the 3DS comes out. The DS era is coming to a close so now is not really the time to invest. Just wait another half year or so for the 3DS and you'll be able to play DS and 3DS games on it..

Thinking about it for a while sounds like a very good idea. Money is easier to spend than earn, after all.

GTA is a very good game, I thought, but I'm not sure it's enough reason to buy a whole system. I'm surre you'll find other reasons if you look around.

One thing to consider: The 3DS will have screens roughly the size of the DS Lite's (I think) but higher resolution, so DS games will either have to be zoomed up (which always looks awkward) or played at original res, meaning the image will be smaller than the screen.

buy a used good condition DS Lite, but Chinatown wars used.

No reason to get a DSi if your getting a 3DS.
