I am a 28 female and NES was my first system. I loved Super Mario Bros. and have it on my Wii!! I guess you can consider me a fangirl of Nintendo. I traded in my white DSi for this and I am happy with the trade. I just wish I waited and knew about this release and didn't bother getting the white DSi!! Oh well! Christmas is coming and this was my present to myself BEFORE actually getting my Christmas money!!! I just had to have it, I am a huge fan!!! It's def taking some time to get used to the weight and feel of the bigger system. The bigger screens are a plus and I don't see what some other sites explain as too pixelated. It just looks like a bigger screen, you don't sacrifice anything. I am dissapointed that it comes with Mario Kart. Thats not a must-have game for me. Possibly the new Mario vs. Donkey Kong Mini Land Mayhem would have been a better choice! GREAT HOLIDAY GIFT FOR ANY MARIO FAN!!

I highly have no doubts about the new DSi XL what so ever, but this just looks terrible. Last years Metallic Blue Mario Bundled DSi was awesome, and it looked good, too bad i did not get it, but this right here is red, which ireally like. My only complaint is that it is Black on the bottom, so not the whole thing is red. I do not like Burgundy, and i like the Bronze because of how it is Brown and Bronze which really mach, and i sort of like the Midnight Blue, but as i said, my only complaint is that the bottom of it is Black, so why not make the whole thing the same color. And, i hate how this has the Mario Symbals. If anyone remembers the Mario Bundled DS Lite, well my friend's sister had that and she is a girl. Last years Metallic Blue DSi was nice because it wold be for boy and girl, but this i think is just for girls, because it has the three symbals, its red, and its bottom is black which is the ugliest thing about it. I like how they came up with the red for the 25th Anniversery, so this is good because it is good for people from the age of 6 and 12 but definitley not more. Nintendo, why not just make the whole thing Red?
Rated 10 out of 10 by buggy1 Best color and bundle for DSi XL
When I first got the DSi XL out of the box I was floored by the size, because I previously owned a DS Lite, which is a great starter system. And now owning a 3DS which I adjusted back down to the smaller size. If you where previosly owning a DS Lite and you upgrade to this you will be overwhelmed by all of the features and downloads to pick from. I enjoy playing my DS games on it because it gives the game a whole new feel. And espcially playing new super mario brothers DS on it feels great, considering it says Super Mario Bros. 25th Anniversary on the front. This system is a two tone, red and black. Which I add that the colors contrast amazingly together. You'll be happy with mostly every aspect of nintendo DSi Xl especially this edditon, which I may add it includs a free mario kart ds game in the US, and new super mario bros ds in the UK!

I can't complain about this system. As soon as I opened up its box I was thrilled- It was huge compared to the Lite. The screen are larger and better for your eyes, and the system itself looks great for the Super Mario Bros Anniversery. I love how instead of the lite it has a menu, and when you hit the power button it goes straight there instead of completely shutting down. Mario Kart is very fun, I spent about 3 weeks in a row playing it and not another DS game. The graphics look good, the controls simple, and the gameplay challenging and fun. Not to mention the Brain Age games included are fun to play once in a while, but I don't care for PhotoClock that much. Overall a GREAT system, I would certainly reccomend getting it if you can find it anywhere.
Rated 10 out of 10 by Code Great gift for Mario Fans OR Nintendo Fans!
I love this thing. The Mushroom, Fire Flower, and Invincibility Star on the case is just...I love it...haha. I would recommend this to ANYONE who is thinking of getting their friend/family member a DSi. I guarantee you that if they grew up with Mario as a child, they'll love it just as much as me. My one and only con which I think is common throughout all DS's is the fact that the top screen isn't quite as bright as the bottom during start up...and only on start up. In-Game you do NOT notice this. So, essentially it's a 9.9/10. I'm just a bit nit picky and little things like that are kinda serious business for me haha. It's not bad, and the game and DS are well worth over $200...Good deal.
Rated 0 out of 10 by bbphrogger Tide Me Over 'til the 3DS
I've been looking for an excuse to get a DSi XL even though my DS Lite is perfectly adequate for my purposes. I was hoping the price would come down, but it didn't, and I know I'll be spending another $200-300 for a 3DS when it comes out. A classic NES Mario themed DSi XL is a pretty tough gadget to pass up though, even at $180. When you throw in Mario Kart (even pre-owned MK still costs more than I want to spend) the value is just too great to pass up. So this should hold me over until the 3DS comes out. I figure the bigger screens on the DSi XL will still be handy even after the 3DS comes out, so it seems pretty reasonable in the long run as well.

Words can't tell you how amazing this ds is. i traded in my crimson ds lite for this and this is so much better. it's internet browser is way better than the dsi and the screen is a lot bigger than the ds lite. The only place where Nintendo slipped up was when they made a place for the normal stylus but they didn't make a place on the ds for the pen stylus. Other than that it is amazing. And since it is a special edition ds it's an amazing color with the cool pictures of the star, flower and mushroom. It cost a lot of money but if you play it enough it is totally worth it.
Rated 10 out of 10 by ArenaPro The Best Bundle For the dsixl
i got this bundle last Christmas and it was awsome! it is way bigger than the ds lite and 10x better. I used it almost everyday either as a game system or to look online but now its gotten a bit boring. all in all its a really durable system. I've dropped it alot of times but it still plays great!
in the end I'd stick with this system. even though the 3ds is out I still prefer the dsi. so until there is no more ds games in stores I will always own a dsi xl.

I had the original DS then the DS lite with custom engraving from the Nintendo store in NYC. I lost the second one when i bought my house and moved. My wife just got me the new Mario DS. I can't believe it has been 25 years feels luike just yesterday that I was playing the first one. Well this is a must have for any Mario fan who does not already have a DSi. Comes loaded with great games. Also the 3DS is slotted for April but lets be real next X-mas is a more likely time.
