    Default Is it too late to buy a 3DS?

    Or is there going to be a newer version coming out soon?

    I got a 3DS XL. And they just released the 2DS not THAT long ago. I think you're fine tbh.

    Does it even matter? Heck, if you would buy a snes, because you like the games on it, then buy one. It's the same with a 3ds.

    It is not too late. The good games just started coming out to the system over the past year. Now it is the high point of the system.

    Well aren't newer version of DS's backward compatible with older versions?

    A Snes can't play games on the PS2 and vice versa. But a DS lite can play GBA games.

    I don't foresee a new Nintendo handheld for 4-5 years yet. Probably coinciding with their next home console release. My call.

    Go for it! I don't think it's too late. Smash 4 is coming out for 3DS this summer, so you still have time. c:

    Even if a snes was backward compatible, it wouldn't be able to play ps2 games And no, a DS can't play gba games, cause their cartridge is different. A DS uses a SD card, while a gba uses a cartridge...

    Regardless, Oister seems a bit right, maybe not THAT long, but yeah, I don't see a major update for the 3DS in a while. I was a little excited to see the 3DS XL come out before I purchased a 3DS, but felt so bad for those that just bought the 3DS, seems like Nintendo screwed people hard with that.

    I was checking this out: http://www.amazon.com/s/ref=nb_sb_no...nintendo%202ds

    How come the electric blue is $5 more than the red variant?

    Probably because blue is more popular than red and people are willing to pay it.

    I was all over trying to decide which to get. The xl was well worth my money. If you're patient wait for the next limited edition one. They hold their value and are hard to find.

    No my friend, it is too soon to buy one.

    I'm on my mobile so I can't post pictures but look up pikachu edition, animal crossing edition, Zelda edition. They've been cranking them out. I bet smash bros will get one.
