    As far as emulators go i think he meant that in the sense that barely anyone made emulators optimized with the 3ds hardware in mind and instead everyone was just content with having retroarch ported to almost every device under the sun.

    So even with stronger hardware unless someone cares enough to do so, we would just be looking at more retroarch ports and nothing else.

    If the OP cares about graphics so badly then consoles and handhelds is the furthest away I'd be right now.

    Go onto PC where your free to add in as much graphical power as you desire, go SLI with 2 GTX 1080TI and use every console and handheld emulator on the PC.

    I planned on saying something similar however now i dont need to XD ... i agree if GFX is what your after than build/buy a massive gaming computer and there ya go ... and in my humble opinion i beleive the switch has lightyears to go before it even thinks about killing the 3ds at this point with all the joycon issues and whatnot i hear about the dock scratching the plastic sorry excuse of a digitizer they decided to use on it ... i know plastic is more durable with kids but yea ... there is room for improvement before i ever consider getting one myself ... tho i must admit i do want to try the new zelda game lol

    I'm genuinely curious as to how many people had been considering upgrading from an old 3DS to a New 3DS that still haven't done so by this point. This seems like the kind of PSA thats only relevant to like 4 or 5 people here, if that.

    If you have the old 3ds
    If you have the old 3ds
    If you have the old 3ds
    If you already have the old 3ds

    I would of paid $50 more just to have it use gorilla glass instead or whatever material they use for the Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge. Its a quality screen.

    PC will always be my main platform for gaming. I only own Nintendo just for their exclusives, they compliment each other very well as I get all my 3rd party on PC.

    That's some great advice right there and you're right there are literally thousands of projects, one of these day i'm going to get one, so I can get my Dreamcast Online, I don't think she has ever been online before.




    well, the Hacking and the mod community might well be the only people keeping Nintendo alive. they might not sell many games but by gawd what a lot of units shifted.

    Hell no. I want a New 3DS, and hopefully their price will now go down.

    Honestly, 3DS XL should have been the standard size. Any time I play on a 2DS or a small 3DS I feel like I'm barely able to see what's happening. Though I guess for kids the smaller consoles are easier to hold.

    Yeah once you go XL you cant go back. I do love the form factor for the 2ds, and my son is in love with it. So it went to a good home. Cannot get enough of my xl :)

    No reason to get a new 3ds now unless you want to emulate ps1 games and stream or play new 3ds exclusives there's not many.

    If you are buying a console for the hardware - not the software, go ahead; otherwise wait for more game releases on the switch
