My outrage over Nintendo's 'New 3DS' console

on August 29th 2014, 11:41 am
Let's face it people the 'New 3DS' handheld that Nintendo announced today during the Japanese Nintendo Direct isn't just a simple upgrade like the DSi was for the DS. Instead of adding features to the existing hardware it's a huge hardware upgrade meaning that games developed for this 'New 3DS' will not be compatible with the original 3DS and is for all intents and purposes Nintendo's next gen handheld.

I can't be the only person that this news ticks off and I'm even more upset that they don't just admit that this is a new handheld altogether rather than just an upgraded 3DS. Twisted Evil

my thing is that I just bought a 128GB SD card and this one ONLY supports microSD cards...

I'm disappointed in Nintendo. I thought that they were an honorable company, but now I'm not so sure.

Like I said before, first Nintendo announces the amazing Mario Kart 8 dlc and then they ruin it by saying yo 3DS owners! If you want to continue playing the latest and greatest 3DS releases you'll have to upgrade to a new and more expensive 3DS console! This is total BS.

I still hope that there will be a way for older 3DS consoles to compensate for New 3DS games. All the new console adds is a couple of extra shoulder buttons and a seemingly-too-small-for-gameplay Circle Pad above the Y Button, so maybe those will just make it extra convenient by making, for example, menu navigation or camera operation easier in games. I doubt Nintendo would completely cut-off support for the original 3DS, especially given how massive the fanbase is right now. Smile

It's CPU specs are double that of the current 3DS models so either support will be cut altogether or the owners of an original 3DS will get gimped ports of the New 3DS games. Twisted Evil

I hope Nintendo doesn't do the same thing for the Wii U in the next year because that would be a slap in the face. Neutral

Oh. Neutral

EDIT: Come to think of it, the average cycle between releases of new Nintendo hardware is around 4-5 years. By the time this is released in Europe (in 2015 the earliest), it would have been well past that four-year cycle, since the 3DS first came out in March 2011 and I doubt we'd see these before mid-2015. This, plus the few interesting new features, is actually starting to excite me. Smile

I just feel like this gen was way too short... If this system somehow allows for all NNID games (DSi, 3DS, WiiU, VC, ect.) to be played on the go the I wont mind as much as my hope is to just have an all in one console that lasts 10 years
