TheLegendofMart, where did you buy your 3DS? Usually stores have consoles set up for you to play. Perhaps you should have tested it first to make sure your eyes could tolerate the 3D effect?

Personally, I don't use the 3D much anyway. It's a bit fun for some games and some sequences, but largely I turn it off. I am hoping DS games look better on the XL because I never owned a DS and I'd like to play some of the good games that were on that system.

There are no game stores in my town as its a small town, in the next big town the local GAME store closed down when they nearly went bankrupt, there are no stores that have demo units short of travelling 20-30 miles, so I took a punt and ordered one online.

I'd rather get a PS Vita. It seems that Nintendo are giving up. They announce Pokemon, then they say it's not for the 3DS. Slowly killing off their best game series...

I have to say sony is the one that's giving up. They pretty much wipe all their old PSP fan off due to no backward compatibility. All you games you got on your old PSP can't be transfer and you would have to purchase them once again. Nintnedo did a fine job of keeping backward compatibility with all their consoles and handheld.

That sucks. I still think you can get a lot of enjoyment out of your 3DS. I wouldn't let buyers remorse set in just yet. :)

BC would have been great for the Vita. One reason I bought a 3DS was because I never owned a DS and I liked the idea of having the whole DS library available straight away.
