Forums - Gaming Discussion - Wealthy Vita owner's, what would get you to want a less powerful 3ds?

Having both the DS and PSP, I eventually want to get both next-gen handhelds, but am currently waiting to get two of the three next-gen home consoles first. I really want to play Fire Emblem, Pokemon X/Y, Persona 4 Golden, and Soul Sacrifice, so it's been difficult keeping my wallet closed.

Despite the 3DS/2DS being the cheaper option, I have so many Vita games I have free access to due to my PS Plus subscription throughout the past year that it may actually be a better investment in the short-term to get the Vita for me (long-term depends on future titles, whether certain Japanese games get localized, etc.).

As for the question, either Dragon Quest XI (although I'd prefer a home console release, regardless of platform), a The World Ends with You successor, or a 2DS XL (cheaper version of a 3DS XL without the 3D capabilities) would probably be enough to push me over the edge and buy one.

A 2DS XL with a non yellow tint would be fantastic^

Nothing. I can't imagine myself playing on the 3ds.


Is this a joke post? Are you saying you cannot actually stand on it? Or are you truly saying that none of the games on it, if on the vita, you would not play them? K.H...Resident Evil....MH...?


I never said that. Of course, there are a few games that interest me on the 3DS. I'm saying that I can't bring myself to play on the 3dS hardware. It's like going back to a 3310 from an iPhone.



The 3DS specs a lot more better then you think.

The Vita uses an AMD CPU for a 4-core 1 GHz CPU

The 3DS uses a non-AMD CPU for a 2-core CPU

both handhelds are underclock for battery life, but the 3DS is the first Nintendo Handheld to be build entirely around the battery.

The PICA200 is a series (2006 & 2008 & 2010 & 2012 models) and the 2008 model has a Vertex Performence of 40.7 million polygon @ 100 MHz, when the 3DS GPU (whichever model) confirm to be clocked at 400 MHz.

I have the whole debate/discussion on this thread: http://gamrconnect.vgchartz.com/thread.php?id=169468

Check out the OP of my thread.

The 2DS is for ages 6 & under only. So there will be no 2DS XL.

Besides the 3DS & 3DS XL have much more better looking screens then the PS Vita's screen.....if you play the 3DS(XL) with the 3D ON 24/7.

AMD has nothing to do with the Vita!

And again your baseless theories about the almighty power of the 3DS in several threads.
