Rumored Update for 3DS

#1sevlomPosted 9/3/2011 8:12:36 PM
Now I'm reading there will be some kind of update to the 3DS platform next year. This in a way is not so great, because some of us spent the full 250 for a 3DS thinking it was the next thing after DS, and those that got the 170 deal, are going to see their system obsolete next year as well. What I'm getting at is I think the business model needs changed for these frequent updates. What they need to do is make a system that draws on all the previous experience, and makes a new experience, and is made to last awhile, so it doesn't have to be updated every single year. The reason being you go and buy one, then the next year you feel cheated, because they update it more, when it should have been better to begin with. I think they should focus more on making it good to go the first time, instead of having several updates of the same system. I understand perhaps an update once or twice during the systems life cycle, but look at the DS... Original DS, DS Lite, DSi, Dsi XL. The system should have been more like the DSi to begin with, would have saved all the updates.

There won't be an update, anyone saying there will be is a troll or an idiot.

I know I'm oversimplifying about this ordeal, but I really do think they had way too many updates to the same system. I'm hoping they'll find something that works, and stick with it.

Hopefully you are right, but we'll see. Given the history of the DS, and the trouble the 3DS has had, it seems the rumors might be right.

I don't think Ninty would redesign the 3DS so that the older version becomes obsolete. It'd just be stupid.

It's inevitable that we'll get a redesign somewhere down the line, but not one with 2 circle pads or anything.

Can't they be both?

They did something similar to this during last year iirc- They brought out news on their new console - The 3DS- before the XL/LL had even been launched in America.

Sure, it's not a redesign of the XL, but it's still something similar.
