Product Description

Color: Midnight Blue

Amazon.com

Modern handheld gaming has long been dominated by Nintendo and Sony. Each hardware manufacturer has multiple viable offerings derived either directly, or evolving from the respective DS and PlayStation Portable product lines. All of these devices are impressive multifunctional devices, with designs meant to encourage gameplay on the go, integration with the Internet, backwards compatibility to previous games, and so on, but each goes about this in different ways. Taking a few minutes to examine the main features, and getting more familiar with available options, accessories and possible limitations of each handheld is the optimal way to determine which is the best choice for a player.

Color Name: Metallic Rose
After waiting for a LOOOOONG time for a pink version of the XL to come out, i've finally switched over from a DS Lite.. but.. I'm a little disappointed.

First of all, the color shown in pictures is deceiving, the product is more of a copper-ish pink then a "rose" color. The picture makes the color seem a lot more lighter and pinker than the actual product. Besides that, the product is working well.

I've upgraded from a DS lite to this DSi XL, I was worried about how the larger screen would stretch out the pixels but after playing awhile, you barely notice the difference. The size also fits comfortably in my hands, they feel less cramped now which is great because I can play longer. I notice that the speakers in the DSi XL sounds a lot better, more crisp than the DS lite.

So far, I'm very happy with this purchase and recommend anyone with a DS lite to switch on over to the DSi XL. If the reason you don't want to upgrade to the DSi XL is because you want the GBA port, then i'm here to tell you that there are definitely ways to play GBA games on the DSi XL using a flash kart.

My kids have a regular DSi and we just upgraded to the DSi XL and we LOVE IT! The bigger screen size really makes a huge difference in how much you can see what's really going on in the screen. It makes it much more enjoyable.

Color Name: Midnight Blue
This is one of the best video game systems ever, kudos Nintendo!

COLOR
The Midnight Blue color is one of the best out there. It looks like a blend of Pacific Blue and Cerulean. It does not stain your fingers like someone on a Best Buy review said, but after having it for about two weeks, I cannot get rid of the finger prints without wiping it with a microfiber cloth.

Update: If you don't wipe off the top COVER, it will get really dirty. My front camera didn't take a quality pic, and it was because the camera was dirty from my smudgy fingers!

SOUND
The sound is pretty good. It definitely sounds better than the DS Lite. It also gets very loud, so I tend to have it on the second or third volume level.

SCREEN
Touchy topic here(excuse the pun), but the screen is actually better than expected! I DO notice the pixelation of the larger screen, but half the time, it is because I am too close to it. I have gotten used to the small screens of the DS Lite, so I need to back up off of the screens a bit. It really is not terribly blurry like some others state, and it does not bother me. Please get screen protectors! DSi XL Official Nintendo Screen Protectors are excellent. You will absolutely regret it if you do not get screen protectors, trust me.

Update: The pixels, I haven't noticed after having it for 3 months now, stopped noticing about 2 months ago(I guess).

Update 2: When the DS Lite and DSi XL are next to each other on PictoChat, The DSi XL's graphics are a little 'softer', if you get what I mean. Not blurry, but softer.

Color Name: Metallic Rose
This is a metallic color that I agree with the other reviewer, while it's pink, does have tones of copper in the color. I purchased mine to play a few games that I wanted to play. This works perfectly. It has done exactly what I need it to every time. While the screen could be bigger for older eyes like mine; I recognize that most people who play these are younger and have younger eyes. The buttons are placed in such a way that they are very easy to access but are out of the way when you are playing a game that don't use buttons. The speakers are loud enough for me and the volume is easy to access and slide up and down and adjust with very little effort.

I know there is a newer version out there (DSi 3D) but this one does everything I would want it to do.

Enjoy.

Color Name: Metallic Rose
There is no question that that Nintendo has always shown to have the most joy when it has came down to gaming on the go. Since the Game Boy was unveiled over 20 years ago, it really revolutionized the way we play games on the go. Today, Nintendo has shown no signs of stopping with the Nintendo DS & with the Wii. They also have stepped it up even further with the joy of the new Nintendo 3DS. But when it did come down to thei last handheld system, the Nintendo DSi, many gamers really were expecting more. They still got a lot though. But is it a system overlooking, no not really. There are still plenty of reasons to play the DSi way.

The Nintendo DSi XL is a strong and brilliant system which includes a lot of great features including in the system. The DSi XL is a bit bigger than the regular Nintendo DSi, and also expands well as a extra digital camera where you can take great photos, wherever you go, as well as digitally designing on them by making mirror images, or adding your favorite messages on them for your friends. The DSi XL also holds more memory so you can also store your favorite downloaded games from the Nintendo DSi Shop like Dr. Mario Express, Asphault 4: Extreme Racing and Art Style: Base 10 to just name a few. But that isn't all. Aside from that you can also play all your favorite Nintendo DS classics like the mentally challenging Brain Age, New Super Mario Brothers, and the delightful The Legend Of Zelda: Spirit Tracks. The graphics and the display on the system looks great, and handles well with the classic Nintendo DS systems.

Yet, there are a few disadvantages with the system. The first one is that there is no expansion slot for the classic Game Boy Advanced games. It was with the original Nintendo DS and the Nintendo DS Lite.
