The recent Operation Rainfall has got me questioning NoA's motives and wondering what's stopping them from pulling that stunt on the handheld market. I'm not really concerned about those 3 games since I don't own a Wii nor am I that big of an RPG fan, but the principle of the matter is what concerns me.
I've always played Nintendo games since I got into gaming, but I've always played other game systems as well.
But right now Nintendo's attitude is slowly starting to get on my nerves and the fact that they don't seem like they care about the fans that stuck with them means they can just as easily drop support on the 3DS.
So should I really keep my 3DS or get rid of it and move on until Nintendo hopefully gets the game in order.

What are you expecting? That they'll decide not to localize big games on the 3DS just because? That just because they didn't bring over some JRPGs, a genre that has sold poorly on the Wii, that they'll decide not to cancel Star Fox next?
Go sell your 3DS. You'll do us all a favor by going back to Call of Duty.
1.) Hate on NoA all you want. I get it. I don't like them either. Just learn to differentiate Nintendo and NoA. NoA is just a douchey branch. Nintendo will still bring all the games that you've been playing since you've gotten into gaming.
2.) 3DS has an excellent line-up:
Super Mario 3D Kid Icarus: Uprising Mario Kart 3D Star Fox 64 3D Cave Story 3D MGS: 3D Luigi's Mansion 2 Paper Mario Animal Crossing
All of those should be out in the next 12-18 months (the girth of the line-up coming this holiday).
If I were stuck on an island with Super Mario Galaxy 2 and Modern Warfare 2, I would play Super Mario Galaxy 2 first. People who agree: 218
You should keep it if you like the games that are coming out for it. If you want to get rid of it solely on the reason to "teach Nintendo a lesson" that won't really happen, no one cares about the consumer as long as they sell the numbers they need to (this applies to every company there is).
But if you like the games, just keep it, wait to see what else is coming out, you can get a good idea of how it's going to be if you look back at the DS games.
My issue with how Nintendo's handled OpRainfall is that they've made everyone that yes, they are aware of the demand for these games, and no, they really don't care. It seems to go completely against their E3 press conference, talking about how going forward, they're all about the core gamers with the lineup of Wii U software. Why not start now, and build a precedent for people to actually believe them when they say that? If I can't trust Nintendo to support the release/distribution of core RPGs and other titles now, why should I say 'no but they got our backs THIS time guys' when I ponder lining up to buy the Wii U?
