I use a 3DS because my DS Lite doesn't work very well anymore and I can only use the internet with it.

I recently got my 3DS. I thought I might as well play it on it since my DS Lite was getting old, something was wrong with the screen and the hinges were damaged a bit.

Well, I have a 3DS, but I also have a DSi XL, which is much, much better for playing DS games on, so I've been using that for Black 2, except for when I've been using the Dream Radar to transfer things over. DS games look a little blurry to me when they're on the 3DS screen, whereas on the XL they're a lot crisper...even if they are magnified to at least twice their original size.

One of the hinges that keeps the screen is broken (so the screen's floppy) on my regular DS so I've been playing on the 3DS just because it's broken, haha. :3

both, but I prefer playing on my DSi, as it looks so much better IMO on it. I get frustrated with the graphics on 3ds because I want it to be as good as it can be. And also, my DSi is in perfect working condition, so I basically only use the 3ds for 3d games :D

I just play on my DS lite. Unfortunately, I'm going to have to get a 3DS soon if the next pokemon games are for 3ds =/

i been playing on my 3DS-xl and actually grown pretty used to it and dosent really bother me but when you go to the 1:1 ratio looks like if you playing on a DSi or lite if you like the sharper more crisp look, but im ok with the softer look plus its easier on the eyes , kinda looking forward to seeing what GF has in store for the next generation

I'm using my 3DS, but only because my DS Lite is almost unplayable on, what with the L button AND the hinge being broken. I only use the latter for trading when I need it now. Plus, the Wi-fi in my house is incompatible with my DS.

(it's almost like god hates my ds lite because i can no longer play with it)

I'm using my Nintendo DSi XL, because that's the only thing standing that can use it. Obviously, a GBA can't play it...I have already sold my old Nintendo DS Lite, broken hinge, broken top screen and all...and I don't even have a Nintendo 3DS, let alone a 3DS XL. For sure, when I get a 3DS XL when my DSi XL breaks, I'm immediately switching and never going back, because the DSi XL would automatically get sold when I'm gonna buy the 3DS XL. I'll get adapted to the issues in graphics when a 3DS plays a DS game...at least that's what they say...about the 3DS, that it can't play DS games as well as the true DS.

I don't like what the 3DS does to the graphics on DS games, so I prefer to play it on the DS. My 3DS is used exclusively for Legend of Zelda and when I need to trade/migrate Pokémon to White 2.

Im probably going to use my 3DS for White 2, simply because it's already in that one and I dont want to wear down my DS Lite very much, Im trying to be careful with it as it's fairly old, plus I transfer Dream Radar Pokemon to that game.

I play on my 3DS mostly because of the Dream Radar, but also because the only other DS I have is a phat and it feels so clunky.

I haven't gotten a new DS since I got my first one about 6/7 years, and the games look amzing on it because they aren;t fuzzy graphics and have plenty of detail (Yes I have the original DS)

I play on my 3DS. I think it looks better on the ds/dsi. But I like using my 3DS better, becuase of pokemon dream rader, and its easier to connect to the dream world.

I use my 3DS for it, due to the better internet on it. (The drawback is short battery life, though.)

I'm playing it on my DSi. I'd love to be able to access the Dream Radar and all of that cool stuff by playing it on a 3DS, but I don't have the money for one. :/

I've just been playing White 2 on my DS Lite. There are very few games that I can think of at the moment that would make me want to upgrade to a 3DS, so I'm probably going to hold off until the main series games are exclusively on the 3DS- especially with my DS Lite in pretty good condition.

Since I have both my DSi and my Nintendo 3DS with me, I decided to play any new games that I got for either the 3DS or DSi to play it on my 3DS, so that means I've played Pokemon Black 2 on my Nintendo 3DS. Whenever I tried to play it on a DSi, it feels extremely weird.

I'm still playing it on my old DS Lite but I am considering buying a 3DS XL. Is the bigger screen worth the effort? And is Dream Radar any good? I have yet to try it hands on.
