You don’t see many Nintendo 3DS systems out and about these days, but when they do pop up, it seems they really show up in style.
Nintendo’s last-gen portable was arguably one of the best handheld consoles ever for making you want to take it with you wherever you go. Thanks to its StreetPass and SpotPass functionalities, where walking past other fans also carrying a 3DS netted you rewards, we were forever taking our machine with us on walks, on public transport, and wherever we could, all in the hopes of crossing paths with someone new.
Since the Switch’s launch in 2017, fewer and fewer players have been heading out with their trusty 3DS – a natural turn of events, but sad all the same. Yet here we are, in 2021, with an original Aqua Blue 3DS being spotted at a rock concert, not only alive and well, but being used to film the show.
Inspirational, although we can’t help but feel that a 3DS isn’t exactly the most convenient platform to use for recording concerts – maybe the owner really wanted to be able to relive the show in 3D?
Perhaps in a few years’ time, this 3DS will end up on eBay, with its confused buyer wondering why on Earth it comes with 3D front-row footage of a Bring Me The Horizon gig. “Huh, I didn’t know this came pre-installed.”
