3ds is likely to be phased out with the switch taking over as Nintendo’s home and portable. Still, loads of cheap games for them about my kids love theirs, the eldest has a 2ds now though as the hinges go on the 3ds and the screen falls off. Daughters is fine but she doesn’t use hers as much.
For minecraft though, pocket edition seems to be more feature rich, even than the console version, we have it for wiiU and the kids both have it for their ipods. The eldest uses his ipod more, as you can use mods on that but not on the Wii.
I don’t see the appeal personally, but that’s me.Posted 5 months ago
The real advantage of a dedicated console like a DS is that they’re less reliant on an internet connection and there’s less chance of them accidentally buying something if you don’t nail the settings. We’ve been away before and the games the kids have had on iPods just don’t work without wifi so the DSs have had some hammer.
They do use iPods more though, when they can.Posted 5 months agolazlowoodbineMember
Be aware that there’s original and “new” 3DS’s. The new one has an extra joystick and something or other different as well. The games are the same, unless that is they’ve brought out some which can only work with the extra stick. It’s something worth looking into if you’re buying one.Posted 5 months ago
