Ever since I got the original DS, I had been wondering what one of my favorite franchises at the time would be like on a handheld. Now with SSB4 coming out for both Wii U and 3DS, I'll finally get to find out! ...or will I? Thing is, I only plan on getting one version of the game since I'm betting they'll be pretty much the same, so it wouldn't make a whole lot of sense to buy the same game twice. I'm sure most of yal also think this way, so we've got a tough decision to make, and that there be what this thread's about! Now some will be all like "It's too early for this thread we haven't even seen the game yet!" but I think it'll be cool to see how our current views change after E3.
Now then, I'm betting most of us will instantly opt for the Wii U version for it's familiarity, as we've always played Smash Bros. on consoles. When I first heard SSB4 would be on both 3DS and Wii U, I was like "lol forget you 3DS version!", but that was way back when the Wii U hadn't come out yet and I was still uber skeptical of the 3DS. Now, I'm close to saying the same thing again, only for the Wii U this time. If SSB4 came out right now, I would most certainly get it for 3DS. I feel many others would do the same, as like me those others have a 3DS already but are without a Wii U.
Just looking at the total sales for each system shows that there are a lot of us 3DS onlys out there. We'd basically have to pay $300+ for the Wii U version since we have to buy a Wii U along with the game, as opposed to $40 with the 3DS version. Of course, SSB4 isn't coming out now or anytime soon. By the time it releases, the Wii U should be a much better investment that many current 3DS only owners will have, so price shouldn't be a major factor, but only time will tell. Just something to think about there before yal impulsively say "Wii U Smash obviously!" Oh, and while I'm currently leaning towards the 3DS version, I could still go either way so I'ma wait until we see more. Anywho I think that's enough of my rambling hehe. Hopefully the poll works so yal can vote on what version of SSB4 you plan on getting!
