Should You Buy a Nintendo 3DS?

The Nintendo 3DS has been out for a couple of years now but its popularity has never waned. Why is that? And the bigger question is: should you buy a Nintendo 3DS? The answer to those questions will be answered in this article.

The Nintendo 3DS is the latest portable gaming console by the popular gaming company. As with all other Nintendo-owned products, it has garnered massive success and awards through the years.

The biggest question here is, should you buy a Nintendo 3DS even if it is the year 2016? For me personally, YES, you should still buy a Nintendo 3DS no matter what year it is. Here are the reasons why:

  1. Massive Collection of Awesome Games- The Nintendo 3DS has a massive collection of awesome games. And no, I am not only talking about a massive gaming library but I am also talking about games that are really popular. Just in the late 2014, there were 3 games that came out namely, Super Smash Bros for 3DS, Pokemon Alpha Sapphire, and Pokemon Alpha Ruby. These three games alone have sold more than 1 million copies worldwide. As if that is not enough, most of the earlier games that came out have enjoyed massive success as well.
  2. 3D Gaming- The Nintendo 3DS got its name because of its new patented 3D technology. When you normally enjoy 3D gaming or movies, for example, you need to wear specialized glasses which is an additional cost. With the Nintendo 3DS, however, you can enjoy 3D gaming without any 3rd party accessories as the dual screens will give you that experience. I think this feature alone is what sets the Nintendo 3DS apart from the rest.
  3. Better Hardware- The Nintendo 3DS is by far the most-improved portable gaming console. Yes, the Playstation portable got an upgrade in the form of the PS Vita, but it sports almost the same features to that of its predecessor. The Nintendo 3DS sports an entirely new hardware in that it has better speakers that provide clearer and crisper sounds, dual joysticks that are fully functional, and a more than capable processor that can run newer games.
  4. R4 3DS Cards- This is by far one of the best reasons why you should buy a Nintendo 3DS. If you’re new to the Nintendo 3DS hacking scene, R4 3DS cards are known because they increase the functionalities of the R4 3DS cards even more. They allow you to play downloaded games as well as install homebrew applications ranging from a media player, emulators to play older generation games, and a whole lot more. There are also a lot of R4 3DS cards on the market, so be sure to get one of these should you buy a Nintendo 3DS.

These are my 4 reasons why you should buy a Nintendo 3DS portable gaming console. The massive lineup of games, better hardware, and the R4 3DS card is all enough to convince you to buy this portable gaming console.
