Why would getting one late in its life be pointless? By that point, you know whether the system has a good selection of games that interest you, and prices will have dropped as well.

If anyone has a free Loz II download code and feel like giving it to me I would apreciate it o.o

It's nowhere near too late to get a 3DS.

Yeah. 3DS has a few years left.

Besides its never too late. Being late to the party means you have a ton of good games. No playing the waiting game like almost every super early adopter for any system ever.

You guys are forgetting about something that makes it a valid concern: Online and multi-player.

He's probably worried that if he gets one late in its life, he probably won't get to experience online capabilities and multi-player very much since there'd only be a a few years left before the next handheld is out and it gets cut off.

Being a late adopter of a system is almost always a better deal than being an early adopter:

-Huge game library
-Cheaper hardware
-Better deals for games
-The platform is mature so there's usually less software/hardware issues, and those that exist have been revisioned or patched.
