    I bought the 3DS XL along with a LOT of games, both on eShop and retail, but recently I bought Street Fighter IV and Tekken 3D, Tekken being one of my favorite fighting games of all times, needless to say Tekken 3D Prime Edition sucked and so did Street Fighter IV, I've been buying games for the 3DS but it doesn't seem to be satisfying me at all, on Steam or any other platform I would buy games for I would be happy and play those games, as for the 3DS, it just seems like an upgraded DS with better graphics and that's about it, the specs aren't bad but aren't good either comparing to the Vita, anyways:

    eShop games:
    Cave Story - 7.25€
    Tetris 3DS - 9.99€
    Resident Evil the Mercenaries 3D - 9.99€
    Kid Icarus Uprising - 5.99€
    Phoenix Wright Dual Destinies - 24.99€
    Super Mario 3D Land - 44.99€
    Gunman Clive - 1.99€
    VVVVVV - 7.99€
    HarmoKnight - 14.99€
    Bomberman Blitz - 4.99€
    Super Mario Bros Deluxe - 4.99€
    Pokemon Dream Radar - 2.99€

    eShop total value: 141,14€

    As for retail games, I have:

    Pokemon Y
    Cave Story 3D
    Tekken 3D Prime Edition
    Super Street Fighter IV 3D
    Tetris 3DS
    Dead or Alive Dimensions
    Tom Clancy Splinter Cell 3D
    Resident Evil Revelations
    Pokemon Soul Silver

    Is this enough to buy a Playstation 3?

    I would say thats more than enough not sure whut the current rate for a new/used PS3 might be in Portugal but seems like a great deal.....

    Is there nothing else you want on 3DS? If so you might as well sell it.

    Super Smash Bros. for 3DS. Here's the one reason you have to keep your 3DS.

    Edit: But if you really want to sell your 3DS for a PS3 I'm sure you can sell it and still keep the 3DS if you'd want to.

    Back in 2013 I bought a 60GB PS3 (fully functional + 1x official controller and Battlefield 3) for £80 though I've been seeing for £50 and even for £25 on Amazon if you're lucky enough.

    If you have people in UK or a middleman then you could take a look at Gumtree perhaps (where I bought my 2nd PS3 -- I already had one first, PS3 Slim 250GB).

    Well, that's his decision to sell for a PS3 if he want and maybe not this game. For me, I do not have 3DS but I am into Zelda and Mario and I am not hurrying at all. I have PS3 and plenty of games to focus. By the way, I am not into Super Smash Bros games at all. I tried and disliked them. We have all different tastes. Do not call me or anybody crazy not to like Super Smash Bros. We are all different anyway. :)

    I'm not calling you crazy and you didn't need to repeat yourself saying you disliked it, once's enough.

    Now for prices.. Using from the Amazon UK prices.

    3DS XL - Unboxed £95 / Boxed £130
    Pokemon Y - £25
    Cave Story 3D - £57 (seems like a pretty pricey 3DS game)
    Tekken 3D Prime Edition - £7
    Super Street Fighter IV 3D - £3
    Dead or Alive Dimensions - £5
    Tom Clancy Splinter Cell 3D - £3
    Resident Evil Revelations - £9
    Pokemon Soul Silver - £37

    I'd suggest you selling your 3DS bundle on eBay with international shipping for UK because people tend to go for sets like these and including Cave Story 3DS (NIS) that boosts up the price even more.

    De certeza que se vendesses no OLX não irias ganhar grande coisa. lol

    wtf no you shouldn't sell your 3DS
    yeah ps3 is a great system and has an amazing library but i think you should wait until you get enough to buy a PS3
    that's what i did, and i'm glad i did otherwise i couldn't play FE:A or KI:U :>

    What? He has more than enough to buy a PS3 and a couple of games, of course, he'd first need to sell it to receive the money.

    i assume he doesn't have it since he's trying to sell his games

    Well, Portugal right now isn't financially stable so it makes sense he'd want to sell his 3DS for a PS3 as it seems it's what he wants to do. He could play the Euromillions and hope to god he'd win.

    even so, there's no guarantee that he'll get the exact worth of his games in return
    depending on where and how he sells them ofc

    i still say it's safer to wait because even if he buys a PS3, who's to say he'll be able to buy the games he wants?

    YOU'VE got to be kidding right the Vita is nothing more than a portable PS3 with a bunch of ports

    I forgot
    A), he stated the specs aren't as good as the Vita which is absolutely true.
    B), if you honestly think the Vita only has ports, you've never looked at a single game list in your life. You should probably educate yourself.
    C), it's not a portable PS3, but if it were it would shit all over the 3DS, so I don't see how that's a negative point.
    D), your post has absolutely nothing to do with the OP.

    I own a Vita as well & there's virtually no difference in its library or the PS3/4 Nintendo has the edge the handheld wars
