3DS came out early 2011, how much longer before it's dead?

#1HeroC114Posted 2/3/2013 10:38:20 PM
I'm just wondering, because I plan on keeping my 3DS XL that I've bought. I bought and returned the 3DS twice before, but I hear the 3DS XL is a lot better in design, and there are a few games I actually want now.

Monster Hunter 4 looks phenomenal, and I'm getting Fire Emblem Awakening. I'll most likely get Mario Land 3D.

Anything else I should look forward to? I'm not into remakes, and I don't want OoT or Star Fox 64 as I've played those games to death. I'm also not a Pokemon fan.

3-5 years?

Also, prepare to get flamed.

Flamed by flamers?

If so, I'm prepared. I brought some friends who aren't necessarily into women, so they can distract the flamers.

I expect it to have a similar lifespan to the DS. Expect it to be dead by 2018, give or take a year
