Hello everyone
Have a quick question and hopefully I will get a quick answer too.
For days I am searching for an interesting console for my 8-year-old son. Of course, I came to Nintendo ... Since in my childhood this console was the best thing out there.
The question now is: Which console should I buy? For me the most interesting consoles are these two:
https://productz.com/en/nintendo-switch-game-console
https://productz.com/en/nintendo-ds-por ... me-console
Which is better?
It would be nice to get some advice since I am not into gaming that much.

They're different -- but both have very good selection of games.

The 3DS will be more economical, and will have a very wide selection of games at lower prices. These tend towards the "platform" type of games.

The Switch will have plenty of games, and more modern ones, but they will be more expensive (though it has a good catalog of inexpensive "Indie" games, too).

We elected to get a Switch for our 9yr old son, and I've found myself playing a few games too :)

If you need to pick one major game to start with I'd recommend Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild, or Super Mario Odyssey.

I will say go for the switch. While the 3DS is nice I think the Switch is going to be its replacement since it is portable, has a stable of AAA titles now and can be played on the TV (unless you go with switch lite).

I don't think this is on DS...

It's not translated either, mind you, so a mobile app might fit you better.

Take care
