    Sorry if i missed something and am posting in the wrong forum section. But on Wednesday I will be able to purchase one of said consoles, And am wondering which is more worth it in the long run. Seeing how the switch will be released in less than a month I am wondering if the n3DSXl is even worth purchasing at this point. The only reason i see myself purchasing the PS4 is for playing games such as Battlefield, CoD And TES/TESO and Occasionally Watching Shows. Any Input? :P

    Ps4 if you are 10 year old still tripping on CoD an Battlefield like games.
    N3DS if you are a connoisseur who appreciates good quality games.

    I don't see myself playing many of the 3DS games other than LoZ: OoT among very few titles.

    Because I love my o3DS and i think the n3DSXl would be a nice addition to the family.

    Sony sucks. Get yourself a quality Nintendo product.

    PS4 is the second worst console of current generation, second to PS Vita.

    3DS is the best gaming device ever created by man. N3DS is 3DS perfected.

    Easy decision.

    You are asking if you should buy a Sony or a Nintendo on basically unofficial Nintendo forums...

    PS4 - no gaemz, only lousy 20fps ports
    3DS - king of gaems

    True. But then again 3ds is a kind of a machine you simply need a few of in case one dies.

    PS4 is a better media device. Want to watch Netflix on the TV go ahead. YouTube at 1080p no problem. Hulu and other stream services on the TV is a good thing. You also get to play the awesome games the PS4 has and the online interactions with others such as friends or random people. They're many other reasons to lean towards a PS4 if you're interested.

    A N3DS is a portable gaming machine that you can take literally anywhere. Despite quite the power downgrade it sure does pack a variety of games which will definitely get you your money's worth. I recently played pokemon OmeGA Ruby for about 6+hours while still having a 2bar battery left and charges fairly quick. Not quite user friendly when it comes to online functionally and such but most of the great games lack those features while not even needing them.

    PS4 is a still getting support and is having so great exclusives released this year.
    3ds isn't pumping out games like it used to but has a great library of games to already try out.
    The switch does seem like a go to console so I suggest you hold off on getting a N3DS just to see if you truly want the switch.

    If you have a gaming pc theres basically 0 need for PS4 apart from those few few exclusives worth your time.

    My 3ds is being well used, keeping my pictures safe from dust.
