5.0 out of 5 stars Perfect Fit! 3DS XL December 3, 2012
Verified Purchase
I read the reviews, and was almost sad when this was shipped, afraid that I might not like it due to people saying that it was falling off and it wasn't a very snug fit. I am wondering if these people don't have a 3DS XL, Because mine fits 100% perfectly. I love this case, it is EXACTLY what I wanted. it DOES make it bigger, but that expected with any case that puts big hand grips on it, so that isn't a problem for me, but might be for others. what does it feel like? Its Silicone, so it feels like a rubbery kind of texture, and I was afraid it would pick up dirt and hair and other things a lot, but nope. every time I grip it, it feels just as smooth at it did from day one of me getting it! I am a fan of this case and will suggest it to everyone. Everyone I show it too goes "WOW I love this case, where did you get it?" my answer? "Amazon, from a company called DreamGEAR!" Hope this helps others

Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
As great as the Nintendo 3DS XL's design is, it's almost a given that, if played long enough, your hands will cramp up eventually; it's only a matter of time, really. Don't get me wrong, the XL is much better for cramping than the original 3DS was, but it's still an inevitability. For those of you who, like myself, may find yourself playing the 3DSXL for hours on end, enraptured by the time devouring (I'm reminded of Chrono Cross all of a sudden for some reason, hmmm...) charm of masterpieces like The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time 3D, Fire Emblem: Awakening, and Animal Crossing: New Leaf; OR maybe you find yourself just beating the tar out of your hands with the intense action of games like Star Fox 64 3D or Kid Icarus: Uprising. Needless to say, your hands WILL cramp and you WILL thank the gaming gods for a product like this one.

The package comes with two main pieces. One piece goes on the lower half of the 3DSXL and acts as the grip itself. The other piece goes on the top half and its only purpose is to act as armor to protect the system from damage from rough handling or falling, I imagine.

4.0 out of 5 stars 3DS XL Comfort grip October 22, 2012
By James

Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
When it comes to grips for portable game consoles there is a degree of subjectivity involved. What is comfortable for my hands might not be as good for those with larger are smaller hands. That being said my hands are average maybe a bit on the small side with somewhat thick fingers.

There are two pieces that wrap around the console one for the top screen and one for the controls and bottom screen. They fit well enough and wont come off while playing, but the back part of the bottom piece which wraps around the cartridge port and power port are a bit loose. This can be problematic when inserting or taking a game out as it will get blocked partially by the silicone grip, same goes with the power port, you will have to lift the silicone up and out of the way to easily use these ports.

Another small problem is with the stylus. It can be difficult to pull it out if you have thick fingers. Luckily i don't have any games that require a quick draw on the stylus. The headphone port is accessible with the grip on which is a major plus.

The Dreamgear comfort grip definitely helps with the hand cramps that i get while playing most games. Basically your ring finger and pinky now have something to wrap around rather than clamp up and cause cramping. Its made of silicone so its pleasing to the touch and does not retain as much heat as plastic.

If 5 stars represents perfection this grip falls a bit short, none of the problems are major though just a bit annoying.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good for the Price October 24, 2012
Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
I have two young boys and they had the DSi XL with the Nerf Armor.

The Nerf Armor was tough cushion wrapped over hard plastic. It came with a jumbo pen and holder in the back. I was waiting for Nerf to come out with it for the 3DS XL but they never did. Just today i found a site that says they have it. [...]
Anyway, I couldn't wait because my boys would surly drop the $400+ investment of buying 2 of them, so I got this DreamGear. They were very happy to get it. It makes the 3dsxl look like a Play Station controller, and it only comes in black. The material is super soft silicone like fixable material. It's a little on the slippery side, not tacky at all. It is so soft you can easily squeeze the handle petruding from the bottom of the controller.

In a nutshell, I would buy this again for the kids, as the Nerf Armor is so big and bulky, I can't fit 2 of them in their carry bag, this is a bit slimmer.

I would recommend it,especially if you have kids, and in the end, my Nerf DSiXL Armor broke at the plastic hinge, this has no hinge to break.

4.0 out of 5 stars Minor issues, but overall great product.
Fits great except for the back where the cartridges get inserted. It's a bit loose to the point where you have to move the silicone a bit in order to insert the cartridge. Read more

Waste of money. Also gave these away. I can see why discontinued. Material so soft that it wouldn't even slide in place to protect. I bought a hard cover made by Nintendo. Read more

4.0 out of 5 stars Feels like you are holding fake breasts.
The thing is like.... fake boobs are covering your 3ds. Lol. Firm but squishy. Feels more natural than having to hold the system like you are holding multiple chopsticks. Read more
