    Default Only for 3DS?

    I know I have said this many times, but what's your guy's opinion for the 'Only for 3DS' format? Do you personally like it?

    I personally think it wasn't that wise of a move for Game Freak and Company because though many people do have 3DS systems, many fans haven't upgraded yet because they have a fairly high price. Also, I think that completely dumping sprites was not a best decision but any people have said that they like the 3d models to the sprites.

    Games are going to be released in October. By then, 3DS owners should increase.

    Besides, many people will buy 3DS because of Pokémon.

    Pokemon is going to facilitate that transition to 3DS very nicely. Nothing sells systems like Pokemon. They aren't losing money on this with the amount of money they're making Nintendo pushing their handheld.

    I already have a 3DS so i'm fine with it. I think it's time GF moves from DS and into 3DS. another generation on the DS would be sort of hindering progression imo

    The Nintendo DS is an obsolete console in Nintendo's mind now. The 3DS was launched 2 years ago, so it's only natural that the Pokémon franchise would move on.

    It's a very wise move for GameFreak and Nintendo when you look at the Japanese sales charts - the 3DS has been the best selling video game console every week since the price cut. Also, today it was announced that the console managed to sell 100 million units in 100 weeks, which only one other console before it has done.

    I already have a 3DS and I'm upgrading to an XL for this not just for the fun of saying that I'm playing X on an XL

    Why would they have stayed with the DS? it's dead. It was time for Game Freak to move on, they obviously were working on this for a long while now, they will sell a literal ton of 3DSes because of this. I have one already but if I didnt the first thing Id want to do is go buy one, heck I might even buy another for trading.

    Yeah, a lot of fans will buy a 3DS specifically for Pokemon X and Y. I bought my 3DS last year (in France too, what a coincidence) because I knew this would eventually happen.

    No, it's about time Pokémon moved systems. DS has been out for a while now. It needs to move with the times, if it didn't we'd still be playing on the Game Boy!

    Of course it's a wise move, just like moving onto the GBA and then onto the DS. I'm absolutely fine with having to buy a 3DS, since the games look awesome. I really don't understand that logic.

    It's a fantastic idea. Pokemon can't stay on the DS forever. It's been stuck there since 2006.

    I have a 3DS XL already, so I'm not fussed.

    Much as I don't like having to buy a 3DS, it was time for the series to move console. So yes, the move is justified in every possible way.

    A Game like this could not have been made for the DS. It would already be a fool's errand to try and keep revolutionizing the gameplay on an obsolete console that has been around for nearly 8 years.

    Yeah, also, this gives me more of a reason to totally want that Fire Emblem themed 3DS that Japan got. Two 3DSs = trading and stuff. That FE themed 3DS just needs to get released here along with FE: Awakening! I'd pay a lot of money for that beautiful console!

    I do not think there was anyone that didn't expect Gen VI to be for 3DS. The DS has been very well represented, it has had two generations, and nine main series games over it's lifetime. It is time to move on to the new hardware.

    I'm holding out hope that they have preserved the use of sprite art in some way. It would be a shame if sprites have been completely abandoned.

    I think it was time to move to the 3DS.

    The DS is dead, accept it.
