If I do (at the shell prompt with an example)
$ python3
Python 3.4.2 (default, Oct  8 2014, 10:45:20) 
[GCC 4.9.1] on linux
Type "help", "copyright", "credits" or "license" for more information.
>>> 2+3
5

And if I do
$ idle3
I get a new window containing

Python 3.4.2 (default, Oct  8 2014, 10:45:20) 
[GCC 4.9.1] on linux
Type "copyright", "credits" or "license()" for more information.
>>> 2+3
5

so...
Still not clear whats your point.
idle and python interpreter seem to be mostly the same

[As best as I can make out the OP is not using the standalone
interpreter
nor idle
nor (the many options like) python-interpreter-inside-emacs
nor ipython
nor ...
]
