I quite don't like the half-step upgrade consoles. I've been buying systems long enough that when the 3DS launched in the states, I waited an excruciatingly long 3 years to buy one, knowing that they would inevitably release some bad-ass looking Limited Edition Systems down the line and they eventually did. When my dream L.E. 3DS released in my favorite color I bought 3 of them on Black Friday to ensure i'd have enough backup 3DS hardware to last me the rest of my life. Well then Nintendo came out with the New 3DS-XL. Who cares right? I've got my dream systems in my dream color. Well, eventually they started making games that don't even work unless you've got the latest upgraded model but at this point I was already deeply invested in the original model. It wan't even a very good upgrade in my opinion. It still has the same astronomically low 240p resolution, and now you need a screwdriver to change the memory card. I don't care for these changes at all, but I wanted to play some of the new games so I had to get a 4th 3DS. I also loath that the extra horsepower of these systems because inevitably it always seems to end up being used merely to improve the graphics of the newest games, but never improving the performance of the old games. Remember the old Sonic commercials that advertised the game ran at 60 frames per second? I'd love to see FPS used in marketing again instead of 4k this and 4k that.
