It's too big, terrible battery life and no backwards compatibility with the 3ds.

Its the switch users invading the 3DS board.
They think the switch is superior to the 3DS. Its not!

same size as an XL, relatively speaking
battery life is same as the original 3DS

no BC is unfortunate but the same could be said with no full BC w/ all DS games and/or previous handheld lines outside of choice VC offerings.

It's not that they want the Switch to replace the 3DS so much as it is a given, pretty much. What with Nintendo consolidating its console and handheld divisions into a single division, and the next mainline Pokemon game set to release on it. Plus, a new portable would step on the toes of the Switch's portability.

The 3DS had a good run, but like all good things, it must come to an end at some point.

But why so mad about it? All I see is angry people wanting the 3ds to die. Why is that? I'm still playing mine, I mean it'll be dead in the sense when I'm done playing with it.

Switch owners are desperate to justify their purchase of an overpriced gimmicky system that only has 2 exclusive games worth playing on it (1 of which isn't even out for a few more weeks).

I'm hearing echoes of 2011 for the 3DS here...

I have my 2DS and my Switch sitting side by side and topics like these make me chuckle.

I mean, sure. I have no games for my Switch yet (Now's the best time to get one. It's the calm before the storm!), but still.

3DS is at the end of its life? Yes. But surely anyone who is brand loyal enough to Nintendo to have bought a Switch before E3 2017 showed us Nintendo is finally getting their s*** together again also has at least one variation of 3DS. Why would you want less games for something you already have? Seems silly.
