I bought mine for Pokemon, and also because there are other cool games out there. I'd say it's probably gonna be worth it, especially considering future games will be made for 3DS but I'm not expecting too much of a future for the now-outdated DS.

I would not buy a DS, if I were you. You'll miss out on a lot of the community part of the game, if you play an old version of pokemon (which may have some wifi features like random wifi matches disabled) as opposed to a newer version.

Since future Pokémon games will most likely be made for the 3ds(or future handheld consoles) I think we will get at least 3 Pokémon games for the 3ds.(Not including games such as Pokémon conquest and such). I think the 3ds will be a good investment if you're intrested in future Pokémon games. : )

This sums it up perfectly. Also, there are other great games to play too, like Luigi Mansion, Mario and Luigi Dream Team and soon Super Smash Bros C:

I hope so.

It's the only reason I bought one after all.

I literally 3 days ago just bought my 3DS XL for $150. Don't have a single game for it but I can't put it down. The whole home screen and apps they've added to this gen of handheld makes it enjoyable. I've downloaded some demos from the eShop. Including the mystery dungeons demo (it's pretty fun). I am actually about to go out and get the new Animal Crossing. Long story short, I went out to buy the 3DS to get ready for X and Y and I'm having more fun than expected in the meantime.

I think it is worth it. I just bought a 3DS 2 days ago in anticipation of Pokemon X/Y. The last Pokemon game I bought was Diamond like 6 years ago now. Black and White was way to underwhelming for me to get back into Pokemon, but X and Y looks like a keeper. I mean with every new trailer it keeps looking better and better.

Also there are plenty 3ds games, both released and upcoming, that are good titles. Either way it wouldn't be a waste.

Well there are a lot of good games in 3DS other than Pokemon, but X/Y is obviously a system seller as many are considering buying 3DS just for Pokemon. It's your call I guess.

Well I did it! I bought a 3DS, not an XL, I like the compact original that actually fits in my pocket nicely Like the good old gameboy color!!

This thread is kind of becoming a general 3DS thread, which doesn't really fit in with X/Y, so I'm going to close it. However, if you want to talk specifically about this game being worth it to buy a 3DS, perhaps discuss how good you'll think it be and how worth the purchase it would be in the X/Y Opinions thread!
