Definitely recommend a 2DS. Out of everyone I know who owns a 3DS never uses the 3D ability so what is the actual point of getting the more expensive device and not use it? Same battery life and the 2DS is less likely to break.

It's more comfortable to hold aswell.

Damn you, Animal Crossing, and your ability to play at everyone's OCD like some sort of toy.
I'll never stop until my town is perfect.

Justplayingitcool - Personally, I'd recommend either the 2DS or 3DS XL. If it weren't for my original 3DS, I'd have already gotten an XL, and I still might just because the upgraded handheld is quite a bit better.

Peace-Child - Eventually, you reach a cracking point. ^^' I worked on AC:NL for a long time, but I had to restart my town, and I just can't seem to get back into it.

That's pretty damn amazing numbers for Animal Crossing. The 3DS in 2013 was much better than 2012. Unfortunately, it doesn't look too hot for 2014. Hopefully, they announce more titles soon because this year, so far, is very lackluster IMO.

canderson yeah I don't have high hopes for the 3ds this year, I think Nintendo is more concerned about how the Wii U is doing right now and working on some kind of connectivity between it and the handhelds.
I'm still pretty dang happy with the games I've got though *cough Animal Crossing cough* :3

I've not been massively sold on the 2ds, mostly because it won't fit in my handbag. And if it did fit, the screens would get scratched to high heaven. But it's awesome to see Nintendo handhelds still going strong after the eons that they've been around for.

Anyone got sales figures for the 3ds? I think I remember reading somewhere that it did really well over Christmas, despite the releases of the the two big next gen consoles.

Verotten. 3DS was the best selling gaming device in December in the US with 1.1 million. Although that's a decrease from last December and the year before, it's pretty decent considering the two new consoles.

Awesome numbers for ACNL, very well deserved too!

Have yet to know someone with a 2DS, but i will still stick to my trusty 3DS XL. ^^

woot, pokemon is at the top still. Pokemon is an already popular game franchise, but imagine if it got game releases for the PC. Im not one for console's since i tend to dedicate most of my time to PC stuff, but i would pay ALOT of money to play pokemon on my PC. not to mention that they can do alot with the graphics if they made PC ports.

I think the 3Ds will do fine this year since Super Smash Bros is coming and I plan on buying the game for both the Wii U and 3Ds.
