I'm currently considering buying another DS (touring/playing far can be brutal, especially when you run out of music...), but I am not sure which model to go with...

Original
DSi
3DS
2DS

I don't care much for the 3D, but I really love the games they put out on it. I also worry about backwards compatibility. I swear I read something in the past that the 3DS/2DS isn't compatable with some of the original DS games.

Anyway.... thoughts?

I have the original DS and you can get a lot of the Final Fantasy remakes, which would be great when you're on the road. It also has Dragon Quest IV.

EDIT: and since its the oldest it's probably the most affordable.

I have a 3DS and the original DS games I have still play just fine on it.

DS lite was the only one I had and I loved it, so I would go with that one.

3DS XL all the way. I love mine.

What makes it harder is that the 3DS XL bundle comes with Mario & Luigi Dream team (which those of you who saw my top 30 games list know I love my Mario RPGs :D), but the basic 3DS comes with Mario 3D World, and $50 cheaper :lol:

I guess in the long run the XL would be better, and cause less eye strain with the bigger screen (my eyes aren't the best)

MAYBE I'LL JUST SAY F IT AND NOT GET ANYTHING AND SAVE MY MONEY FOR BETTER SHIT! :D

I always thought the XL was a dumb idea because the regular (3)DS is already one of the most ergonomically terrible handhelds ever, so I can only imagine what a bigger one is like.

I kinda thought the same thing about the 3DS XL but after getting a 3DS, I do kinda wish it was a bit bigger.

That said, the 3DS is my favorite handheld I've ever owned.

Get the XL. Bigger,brighter screen and better buttons.

Doesn't the XL have better battery life too?

I'd get an XL. DS is such an underrated system. Nintendo consoles are iffy, but they do handhelds so well.

I think the 3DS XL battery with 3D on was the same amount of life as the original 3DS with 3D turned off... or something.

I agree with the fact that DS is so underrated. I spent so much time on mine when I originally owned it. The games were so fun and easy to pick up and play. I am not very much into games with huge story lines or worlds to explore, anymore, so the Nintendo games have been standing out much more to me lately.

I have a DSlite and it's one of my favorite things ever.

That said, I'd go for 3DS. The ability to get new games is a huge draw. And it's basically about as neat. :D

Went with the 3DS XL + Mario & Luigi Dream Team bundle... costed less than a stand alone 3DS XL :lol: . Also snagged Mario Kart 7 for it. Have yet to play it because te UPS shipment got delayed, but hopefully by tonight or tomorrow it'l be here :D

Dude at GameStop mentioned a game called "Bravely Default" that plays a lot like the older SNES/PS Final Fantasies. Look like a very cutsy Japanese version of FF, anyone here have any history with it?

Never heard of it but it sounds like something cool.

I plan on getting a 2DS at the end of the summer. Want to play the 3DS games but fuck 3D.

THIS! I turn it on occassionally just to see how it looks (some cool effects in DK Country Returns), but it really bugs my eyes and gets annoying after a while.
