I think this site posts too much 3DS stuff...

    This isn't a rave; I'm just saying that I think this site would be better if it had a little more...variation to it. Does anyone agree with me here?


    I think a better question would be as to why the 3DS is so popular.

    Hmm...that's my problem. I do like that part of the site at times, but when there's just too much, there's just too much. It's inconsistant and boring

    Not to mention the incoming swarm or so of entry points for the 3DS. Especially free ones.

    Well now we have an acceptable amount of entrypoints, why don't we focus more on something like the WiiU? That needs some more care and attention.

    Go to Wololo.

    There you can complain about it being too Vita focused. Every hack forum has it's preferences.
    Wiiu has been getting thousands of posts the last few weeks since warez was introduced, haven't you noticed?

    You can't exactly tell a 3DS hacker to go and start finding entry points on the Wii U. I'm pretty sure the 3DS scene is still relatively new, since it wasn't that long ago we got ironhax and tubehax as the first free entry points.

    Well, that's all contained in one or two threads, though. In the 3DS section there's too many threads.
    You don't have to be rude about it.

    Sorry about that. It's just outside this forum there really isn't much 3ds HB coverage at all so it kinda stings when people say GBAtemp leans too much on 3ds. :P

    I'm sorry too.

    Although there is certainly some good homebrew lurking about that I've never tried.

    So 2 vita reviews, 2 ps4 reviews, a hardware review, of the 15 pieces of news 2 are directly 3ds related and one technically has a 3ds version coming as it is coming out on everything, though in fairness the handheld lego games are reasonably well thought of.

    That said " I think a better question would be as to why the 3DS is so popular. "
    I have no idea there. Thing has no games unless you count the fact it plays DS games, ROM hacking kind of relies on there being games so not an awful lot going on there, barely any realistic homebrew potential (it has enough grunt to do some stuff but seeing what happened at the end of the DS lifetime with the rise of IOS and now android has swallowed that...) and is somewhat annoying to hack compared to the contemporaries and older systems.
    I am not going to complain too hard though as busy site is better than not busy site which sort of happened when the 3ds was doing not a lot.

    Only wololo.net has been crazy about that. Nothing much has been said, here.

    Too much 3ds stuff? No, I don't think so.
    Not enough coverage of anything else? Yeah, maybe... but that's not the fault of the 3ds side of the community.

    I know it's not, and what I meant by too much 3DS stuff is that there's a lack of anything else.

    I didn't mean any offense to the 3DS hackers in any way.

    Whatever gets the most attention is the most active... pretty simple.
