Do many of you see an actual worthwhile purchase for a ''new'' 3ds system.

My thoughts initially for getting it was for the added analog , and the fact that they mentioned that there would be some ''new'' 3ds exclusives.

What a joke the ''exclusive'' part was because i really only see 2 titles since a year of release ...

The more i think about it the more it seems like a waste , the extra speed in hardware doesn't seem like i would take advantage of since i have a phone, pc or tablet that i could use to surf the web much faster and better.

I was waiting for the smaller version of the ''new'' 3ds to hit north America but it seems its only available in special limited editions at the moment.

Opinions?

I never owned a regular 3DS, so when I became interested in it (last year) I just bought the New 3DS. If I already had a regular 3DS I would have never even thought about getting the new one.

I had the ALBW edition of the 3DS XL and I bought the Hyrule edition of the N3DS. Worth it to me but it's a personal call you need to make for yourself.

The super stable 3D makes it worth playing games in 3D for me.

I like the bigger screens so I'll always get the bigger version.

Yeah i only bought a new xl when the majoras mask one came out, my OG3ds had gotten stolen out of my car while at work and the system i replaced it with was an Og3dsXL that honestly was really good but the hinge randomly broke on me so it was time to upgrade.

Edit: Nintendo always suckers me into collectable Zelda stuff.

1. Better 3D
2. Faster downloading of software
3. Enhanced games (e.g. Smash Bros. MH4U, and soon Hyrule Warriors)
4. Exclusive games (e.g. Xenoblade Chronicles 3D, Binding of Isaac)
5. Exclusive SNES VC.
6. Custom faceplates (regular size N3DS only)
7. Built in C-pad Pro.

If that's not enough to own a N3DS, then I don't know what to tell you other than to not be so greedy for something that is just a hardware revision and not a whole new system.

That's a meaningless distinction.

I must've missed that. I do remember a slightly more accurate DS/DSi comparison...
