Nintendo 3DS XL Red
Amazing tech, Fun, not ergonomical.
I love my 3ds, being a console junkie; i've really never considered going back to portable gaming like my younger years. But I got a craving for some new mario games, and well lets face it... Me or probably not you are buying a wii U. So I picked up this little gadget. The 3d effects work awesome when viewed at the right angle. You will get headaches if you play for long exposed periods of time. But the graphics and the sound quality out of this device is superb. 1 analog stick does present problems, especially when playing platformers. The device isnt very comfortable in your hands either. I found myself having to take breaks and pop my fingers alot!!! I am happy with my purchase, I just really wish there were more games to play, I would give this device an overall 8 out of 10
I love my 3ds XL
I love my 3ds XL. I originally had just the regular 3ds and still loved it but the bigger model is way better for graphics and battery life. I take mine everywhere and recommend it to everyone i know.
My Review of the 3DS XL
Over the years as a Nintendo Player, im am Glad to be a owner of a 3DS XL, Well First The Size and the Shape for the XL is Amazing, I would get my hand hurted on my normal 3DS But playing it for longer time on the XL makes it more comfortable in my hand and Even thou I have Big Hands I can Enjoy playing Like Kingdom Hearts DDD for a longer period of time. The Screen Size is an amazing improvment, I can See the 3D more clearly than before. The Stylus is Better cause it no longer a slider and bigger with my big hands at all and it is not on top of the 3Ds and Like the DS lite and DSi, Also To metion it back to the Slider Volume From the DS lite Which I think it better. The Home Select and Start Button I like Cause it all seperate and easy to press, Also the L and R buttons are Bigger and now Easy to press cause the games I have could really need this without my fingers hurting after a few hours of play. The Battery Is one of the Best Part, Even with power Saver I got more hours on my 3DS than Ever Before . The Memory is Amazing cause I Downloaded Two 3DS retail games on the E shop and still got more memory to download even more games which is a Definate impovment. Now my Cons, Well it big in my pockets even if i have big pockets in my jeans which is my only complaint at the moment. But Overall, This is a nice improvment. If your new to the 3DS, Get this. Also it good to upgrade from the normal 3DS. So I say Get a 3DS XL cause this is a Great improvment from Nintedo until Nintendo Trows somthing more amazing.
amazing product good in all but one small aspect
i bought this yesterday and it did not disapoint however if a tilt my head even a little the stereoscopic 3d mingles and you end up with a double image but its much more comfortable because the edges no longer dig into your palms also the 3 can be completely turned of instead of minimal depth lastly i was happy because the pixels were ok and stayed the same resolution and the start select and home buttons are actually buttons
Amazing upgrade from the original 3DS system
I bought this system because playing long sessions of 3D on the original 3DS is kinda pain in the eyes with the smaller screen, now with the great larger display on the 3DS XL everything is better for playing long sessions of 3D content on it. Apart of the screen it comes with a 4GB great for download demos like metal gear and kingdom hearts and most recently the awesome fire emblem. The battery is... kinda meh because they claim that it just more hours of power and I find it like one hour and half more than the original, obviously with brightness on 5 and and save power mode off and sound from the speakers. Talking about the speakers I have to say that this is the low point of the 3DS XL, they sound very low about nearly 45% or 50% lower comparing with the original 3DS system, but is nothing too important if you have a pair of headphones. I easily recommend this system to everyone, it have an awesome library and more to come in 2013 and beyond.
Awesomeness in your hands
This thing is so cool I have a plain 3ds myself but I'm hoping to get this one soon my friend has one and I've playedd it is so much better the the old 3ds great job Nintendo!
Look insanely awesome and am hoping to get it soon cuz my dad has a 3DS and I play all our games on his so I'm hoping to get this for myself!
Very fun system, worth every penny, mario kart 7 is amazing, big screen, best handheld ever, really good graphics
the bigger, the better.
the 3ds xl has way more battery life than the original. also has a 90 precent bigger screen. for a handheled system that is like a movie theater screen.
I love hand held gaming, and I always have. This is a wonderful system. I had the 3DS and traded up for the 3DS XL. I am so glad I did. Not only better battery life, but much better 3D effect, and it feels better in my hands. This is a great system, and I am so used to playing in 3D that 2D looks boring now. Enjoy!
