Convince me :)

So I'm thinking about getting a 3DS but I need to be more convinced before I drop some money, so what are the pros and cons? How many good games are there? What's the lifetime of a 3DS?

Also, if I get one, should it be an XL and should I get it at Gamestop or BestBuy?

You missed out on black friday deals. You should shop around at more than just Best Buy or Gamestop. I got my regular 3DS bundled with Mario 3D Land on amazon for much less than the bundle was going for at either of those stores. But idk if they price match.

Cons: eShop is underwhelming and has sloppy organization. 3D is better in some games than others. Lots of people complain about battery life but I've played for 3 hours and only lost half a charge.

Pros: Plenty of good games to choose from. RE: Revelations, 3D Land, Paper Mario Sticker Star, Kingdom Hearts DDD, Theatrhythm: Final Fantasy, Snake Eater, Kid Icarus: Uprising, I can't really say Virtue's Last Reward since the dev is smart and went multi-plat but its still available, Mario Kart 7, Pushmo, Crashmo, Liberation Maiden, Denpa Men, Mighty Switch Force, and Mutant Mudds. The last 6 I mentioned are available for d/l at under $10 each.

The system comes bundled with AR games, the Streetpass plaza, and you can get Swapnote as a free app on the eShop so you can send/receive notes with your 3DS friends.

Also try giving a topic more than 15 minutes before bumping it.

Thanks for the response but which 3DS should I get?

I'm also stuck on should I get a 3DS or a PS Vita.

And is Pokemon Black/White2 for 3DS?

Black 2 and White 2 are DS games, but there is an app you can buy on the 3DS eShop that is compatible with them.

Apparently people do if there are still 3DS vs Vita wars on these boards.

If you do go with the 3DS, get the 3DS XL. :D
The 3DS XL does a lot of stuff better than the original, and some worse, but overall the XL is better.
And if you've never had a DS then there are a heap of great games to catch up on, along with the 3DS games.

Pokemon B/W 2 is/are DS games but can be played on 3DS. As someone mentioned there is an app that goes with the game. There's also a $15 3D Pokedex app.
