Hey guys, I've been recently wanting to get back into the 3DS scene but at the same time, I want to get a Switch. I used to have a 2DS, 3DS XL, and New 3DS XL and had hacked all of them and had numerous hours on each of them. I eventually got bored and sold them all. But now I feel like I want to get one again and CFW it to play with my friends. Then again, I also want to get a Switch for when Smash 5 comes out. Any opinions? Thanks!!!

Personally I'd get the 3ds again, but I enjoy the utility of having a wide variety of games in one place. Plus a used 3ds is pretty cheap now days, 80-100 depending, sometimes even less if you look around on craigslist. Switch is still new and pricey, and if I were to get that I wouldn't mod it and risk the ban, since most games for it that look good involve online play. But, every person's needs and wants are different, so only you can decide.

I'd say only get the 3ds again if you're planning on keeping it this time. Playing on a handheld can get boring pretty fast and you should be prepared for that. If you want to sell the 3ds as soon as you get bored again, then i'd say the switch is the better choice.

    @Julie_Pilgrim "very bright" is essentially pure white

    pure white doesn't show up all that much it's mainly when looking at a bright sky

    and if the clouds in the sky have slightly less definition to them because i turned on the contrast enhancer who cares

    Human vision is logarithmic, it's not linear. And nits doesn't tell the whole story of perceived brightness. OLED'S look brighter then LCD's even when both are set to the same nit values because of the higher contrast ratio on OLED's

    OLED's have a 3D look

    Charging port is more likely to fry up or battery fail before the display tbh lol

    "And nits doesn't tell the whole story of perceived brightness" it's not about perceived brightness it's about all HDR content in TV and movies being mastered for 1000 nits so it doesn't look right with anything lower, it's also about dynamic range

    "OLED's have a 3D look" no they don't lol

    As an owner of a OLED and you saying that you never seen an OLED I think I know what I'm talking about lol. I'm not talking about 3D as in 3D glasses. I'm talking about depth and pop in the picture

    I mean to be fair og vitas are still kicking and not many have suffered from pixel bleed and they're going on nearly 10 years

  • SG854 @ SG854:
    OLED's can get away with a lower peak brightness and still provide punchy HDR because of their contrast ratio. Like I said human vision is logarithmic. The higher the peak brightness the diminishing returns in perceived brightness.

    Just get 5 years enjoyment out of it until Nintendy releases something and everyone forgets about switch games lol

    @The Real Jdbye Oleds hit around 750 nits nowadays. The difference between a 1000 nit and a 750 nit isn't huge. It's only about a 4% increase in perceived brightness. Not huge at all. You'll need at least 2000 nit displays to notice a bigger difference.

  • SG854 @ SG854:
    Read this thread it explains it. 1000 nits is not a huge jump from 750 the LG OLEDs can hit. As I said human vision is non linear.
