I love my Nintendo 3DS! I usually play style savvy, and Nintendogs!! Plus the battery life is great! I'm sure you can get them for a good price, because I got mine when they first came out so. In addition a nice thing about this is that you can play regular DS games in it, sadly they took away the game boy cartridge thing, that I was very sad about... but I don't think anyone really had that anymore except me ūüėā. I was a little confused about where the stylus was, but then I eventually figured out that it was by where you enter in your game! It's nice because it can extend and just put away. It doesn't fall out when you tip your DS upside down, so that's always nice.

I had the Gameboy Advance color and regular DS before getting a 3DS and the 3DS blows them both out of the water. It has the dual screens like the DS but the top screen can be used for 3D viewing (which you can toggle off and on). You don't even need glasses for the 3D either (magic!). You have the stylus for use on the bottom screen like the DS and the d-pad for movement. 4 buttons on the right hand side and the 2 shoulder buttons. If the screens are a little small for you then you can always get the 3ds xl which is the same thing but a larger size. Overall I'm impressed with the system and it has a lot of great games in a a lot of genres.

I've had/been able to play just about every DS that has been out with a few exceptions. The 3DS is fantastic because it has a lot of features that can be very entertaining that older models do not have.

Personally, the 3D feature kind of gives me a headache and I rather not have that option on its full potential. But I feel that that is something you get used to.

This is a very compact little console that you can take with you along with your favorite games. There is a ton of various games to choose from.

I strongly recommend this product for everyone. Kids, teens, adults, etc.

I love this product but I can honestly say it took a little while for my eyes to get used to the 3D screen. I get headaches very easily when playing games and it took me about an hour to adjust to the screen, but so worth it! I use my 3DS all the time and bring it with me everywhere I go. It's great for occupying yourself when you're bored and there are so many games out there everyone can find a game that fits them! The games are never glitchy and it is crystal clear without any problems. Love my pink 3DS

The Nintendo 3DS is the go-to travel console imho! The games are really varied, but replay value definitely varies greatly. Everyone can find a game they like- I recommend Age of Empires, Civilization, Card and puzzle games and all the iconic nintendo games like Mario, etc. The system runs well and I have never had a problem with mine. It's affordable for a system, but not as diverse or satisfying for some gamers as a non-mobile unit like the Xbox.

The premiere handheld console, the only thing better is the "New" variant. If you are into gaming on the go or just want something fun, quick, and casual for the kids, this is a must buy. A wide variety in it's game library including big names like Mario, Zelda, and Pokemon. Biggest problem is the 3D function is almost useless in most games or adds nothing to the experience, for that the 2DS exist.

All in all, one of the best handhelds released.

One xmas, I bought one of these for each of my 4 kids. They were so happy. They came in a bunch of different colors so they all got a different one. They loved how they got play games but also go online and take pics. I think we actually have them still lying around the house somewhere. Whenever they come across it, they charge it up and play with it for a bit. Now they are older have their Iphones so... you know how that goes. lol

I bought the 3ds when Pokémon X and Y came out. It is easy to use and anyone will get the hang out it. I use the console everyday and it is not broken one bit! The price is very affordable! You can even get one for hundred dollars at GameStop around the holidays!

I play all types of games from Animal Crossing, Pokémon, Monster Hunter, and Smash Bros!

If you're a looking for a handheld console I would definitely recommend the 3ds!

I own many nintendo products and the 3DS has to be one of my favorites. I can take it anywhere with me, and even when I'm not playing it's counting my steps and getting me things in-game. Being able to turn the 3D on and off is so great. Sometimes the 3D can be a little overwhelming. Graphics are awesome, and the games it came installed with were fun to try. Overall, I would recommend a 3DS to anyone looking for portable gaming

My parents surprised my little brother and I with the first gen Nintendo ds for christmas when i was 9 or 10 years old and it was our favorite thing for YEARS

Buying a 3ds as an adult was so worth it for me. Playing my old ds games on the new system and also enjoying the new technology the 3ds has! THE 3d looks amazing and they even threw in titles like super smash brothers, Zelda and more. So satisfied
