Had a DS to play Platinum. Played it a lot. Sold DS.

Like every video game related software/hardware I sold I'm regretting it


Is it good ? I'm thinking about grabbing a DS just to play it. I grew up with pokemon and have played every generation since.


Would you, wouldn't you ? Any pros or cons would be great ^^

I will buy a 3DS. 3DS XL looks to big for my liking...

Icekickseverything Thanks. It comes with either Mario Kart 7, Mario Kart 3D Land or NSMB2 so I'll be playing one of them


Thanks everyone!

Chaos team I don't know everything, but I do know how to read. Just means he's going to buy it JUST for this game. O:

Also just because I gave an opinion that's different, doesn't mean I'm wrong. jajaja

Who cares about if you like Mario and Kirby. Also who cares if OP would enjoy other games. He asked if it was worth buying a console for this one game. It's not.
Oh yeah, because you know everything about everything.

OP asked for any pros or cons. We're giving him some.

He also said two other things of note. That he grew up playing Pokemon and has played every generation since; and that almost every video game software/hardware related thing he's sold he's regretted.

I wouldn't say it's out of the question that he would want to buy other 3DS games in the future, or take advantage of other cool little features the 3DS has.

I bought DS for Pokemon and not for a moment I regreted it. I also like series like Mario and Kirby, but Pokemon was the main point.

That is untrue. I'm sure more games will be released that the OP would enjoy playing besides Pokemon. Mario, Zelda, and Kirby are all great titles apart from Pokemon. OP, I'd say yes, it's worth it. Like you, I've grown up with and still play Pokemon. I couldn't imagine missing a game just because I didn't have the system to play it. Have fun and good luck making the best decision.

No, it's not and it's not worth buying a 3DS either. Don't buy a console just for one game, that's a waste of money.

Might as well go for the 3DS and prepare for the next Generation. B2W2 is enhanced for DSi and 3DS, and Dream Radar is on 3DS as well, so for me I'd get the 3DS.

Definitely go for it. Although I haven't got the game yet I hear it's pretty amazing. :3
Though really I would start with the first games, but it doesn't really matter.
