And that's actually a fair question I make when I'm thinking about buying a 3DS for Christmas. Is it worth it?
What are your opinions about smartphones vs. handhelds?
Ah, i have the EXACT same problem as u. /o'\ My sister has a 3DS thankfully, which makes me able to see it for myself, but still the choice is hard...
Let's think about this logically though. \('-' ) i'd say...
- how often do u use ur smartphone vs. ur handheld? if u only use ur handheld maybe for 1 hour every 3 months, that's prolly how far ur 3DS will go.
- i'd also say... has the amount of time u've spent on ur handhelds been decreasing w/ each new addition? i.e., u used ur Gameboy more than ur Gameboy Advance, ur Gameboy Advance more than ur DS, ur DS more than ur DSi, etc.
- Lastly... i'd say are there any other costs ur funds could go to? Like maybe they could go to buying a new Smartphone. Or maybe u've been wanting to buy RpgmakerVX ACE, or a better-quality laptop.
The fact u havent bought it yet already shows u aren't completely faithful whether u'd use it. Plus, there'll always be new additions of technology.
My sister tells me she likes her 3DS though, so i guess it also depends on what kind of gamer u r. i haven't seen her really buy any games though, if there r even as many as there used to be for previous generations.
Personally, im not going to buy a 3DS though. i havent been very excited to get one since it came out, so i prolly wouldn't if i got one...
U should prolly get a used 3DS, if u do choose to buy it. \o/ >.<
