    Default 3DS Production Has Ended

    According to a NintendoLife article, Nintendo has confirmed that 3DS/2DS production is no longer after about 9 years being on the market.

    Even though the 3D effect eventually got sidelined, it was a pretty neat trick without needing glasses. The New 3DS line made that feature a whole lot better with the eye tracking. It had a whole lot of social features built in that I have seen people use but when I got on board, the system was pretty much replaced by phones, so I never got a chance to use that stuff.

    A shame, but not entirely unexpected, given the popularity of the Switch and Switch Lite. I think the New 2DS XL was the only model from the series still being offered in the US up to this point.

    Last year, I lucked out and found a New 3DS XL at a flea market for all of $10, not long before (or after) it'd been discontinued. Haven't picked up many games for it yet, but it's a fun system to play regardless.

    I do own one but I really haven't played any 3DS games on it. I find it's harder to come across these games used than older games were, like finding GB/GBC/GBA or DS games was somewhat common at garage sales, thrift shops, or classified ads for pretty cheap prices like $5 each or less. With 3DS I hardly ever found any used games for cheap prices, usually people want $20-$30+ for anything decent, I've only found cheap games for titles really not worth owning. I'm not sure why that is when I could still find various Wii games for cheap everywhere, it's like most people who bought a 3DS were collectors instead of general consumers or children.

    Maybe I'll come across some of the better games so I can actually play them, I've been interested in Corpse Party since I heard it was coming out on the system.

    Mostly played Kirby Triple Deluxe on the Nintendo 3DS as exclusive originals go.
