okay so i have the option to buy a 3ds but i dont know if i should buy it now or wait..
what do you think i should do???
The new Super Mario Bros. game is scheduled to release this year, as well as the new Mario Kart.
But Mario Kart will probably suck ass since they've casualized the shit out of it. But the new Mario should be awesome. It's been described as a mix between Super Mario 64 and Super Mario Galaxy.
If I were you I would get it, especially if your friend is selling it to your for a small price. I mean yeah you also have Legend of Zelda, Starfox, KH, Mario games to look forward this year.
I'll say first that the 3D is spectacular. It really is. The system itself is really great.
But if there's no games you want, I'd wait. Since the 3DS is not as hard to find as say, Wii was, you should have no problem picking one up when you've got something to play. And if the price drops before then, or a new model comes out (unlikely, but I suppose it's possible), then you'll be all the better for it. By the end of the year, it sounds like some good games will be piling up, what with OoT, Mario, Mario Kart, Kid Icarus, Metal Gear, Star Fox, and more getting releases this year. Then after that we'll have Layton, Kingdom Hearts, Resident Evil, and more. So if those sound interesting, you might want to get one sometime this fall or winter.
If your friend is offering you one at a lower price, though, then I suppose there's really no reason in waiting (since you're getting a price drop now, in a way). Since it took nearly two years after DS's release for the DS Lite to come out, and about the same amount for the GBA SP to come out after GBA, I highly doubt there will be a new model 3DS until at least late 2012. Early 2013 wouldn't be unusual. Especially since the Wii's successor will be taking up Nintendo's attention in the next year, and will probably be earning Nintendo enough money that they won't need to encourage customers with new 3DS models. It's really your decision, though.
