Lords of Shadow: Mirror of Fate (for sure) and apparently Shin Megami Tensei IV (probably) are going to be 3DS exclusives.
I really don’t want to buy a 3DS, but I’m going to want to play more Lords of Shadow to feed the Castlevania craving that will be imminent while waiting for Lords of Shadow II.
I considered getting a 3DS due to Mega Man Legends 3, but we all know how that turned out.
Personal stories of buying systems for a specific, or multiple specific games in mind would be interesting to hear, both positive and negative results.
Can be any system, but I find a special kind of frustration when it’s money spent on a handheld, since the most recent portable I own is a GBA SP.
That and the last couple years I’ve noticed I’ve wanted to play PSP RPGs pretty much more than any other RPGs on consoles.
That and sidescrollers along with shmups seem to dominate handheld systems, so basically my generation of videogames is being downgraded to mostly portables and VC titles while FPS kids have been top priority for videogame companies for like, the past 10 years it seems.
Edit: Since I’m noticing that this is consistant with early VG memories I’ll ask future posters to also include the first game or games they got for whatever systems they want to talk about.
