Is 3DS an embarrassing handheld for adults?

#1darklyger64Posted 10/4/2013 7:39:02 AM
In regards to Jack Tretton's comment about 3DS being embarrassing for adults to be seen playing with, Do you think he is right?

If you are over 20, would you get embarrassed if other adults see you playing your 3DS?

Would playing PS Vita would make a difference of how people see you?

Idk, I'm thinking of buying 3DS (though 3D effects won't work due to eye problems, kinda effy if i can't even experience how certain 3DS are meant to be played)

I think video games themselves are embarassing for adults. nobody likes being labeled as a man-child. fewer break free from that label.

If I have to listen to people go on and on about their games (sports, usually) then they can tolerate my game or go away.

Its a little embarrassing, but I don't care what other adults think of me. I just would not play it anywhere someone else judgment of me actually matters. so I wouldn't play it before an interview

This. Only a child would care so much about what other people think of them.

Well, I'm 27 and I don't think the 3DS is embarrassing. Then again, I don't care what others think anyway, so...

I personally feel sorry for people who are afraid to enjoy themselves due to the irrational and childish fear that others may think less of them.
In all honesty, I'm embarrassed for those poor souls.

Given that a solid third of the ~35 people at my workplace collect Skylanders (the youngest being 25) I daresay that stereotype's long since passed.
