Nintendo 3DS XL
The Nintendo 3DS XL system combines next-generation portable gaming with eye-popping 3D visuals. Take 3D photos, connect to friends, other players, or wireless hotspots with the wireless StreetPass and SpotPass communication modes. With 90 percent larger screens than the 3DS, 3DS XL is the ultimate 3D entertainment system.
and connect with friends
Nintendo 3DS XL includes two screens. The bottom touch screen makes use of a stylus that is stored in the unit itself. The top screen displays 3D visuals to the naked eye. Looking at the screen is like peering through a window into a world where characters and objects have true depth. The system also has a 3D Depth Slider that lets players select the level of 3D they enjoy the most. The 3D effect can be ratcheted up to the highest level, scaled back to a more moderate setting or even turned off completely, depending on the preference of the user.
The Nintendo 3DS XL system opens up a whole new world of eye-popping gameplay possibilities. The stereoscopic 3D display of the upper screen gives objects within the game world a feeling of space and depth that extends far into the back of the screen. It becomes easier to see the position of characters and obstacles in the world, making many game experiences even more intuitive for all types of players.
3D Depth Slider
A built-in 3D Depth Slider allows you to immediately adjust the intensity of the 3D settings on the Nintendo 3DS XL system to your liking. The 3D effect can also be turned down completely – all Nintendo 3DS games and applications can be played in 2D, and look better than any Nintendo handheld before it.
Motion Sensor and Gyro Sensor
Portable play control reaches a new level with these amazing features, allowing for new and unique gameplay mechanics. A built-in motion sensor and gyro sensor can react to the motion and tilt of the system, so whether players are twisting their systems side to side or moving them up and down, their motion-compatible Nintendo 3DS games respond instantly.
The Nintendo 3DS XL system uses its two outer cameras to see the world in 3D, much like the human eye. This allows for the creation of 3D photos, 3D video, and even 3D stop-motion animations, that make for an eye-popping addition to your next photo op.
Social and wired like no Nintendo system before it, Nintendo 3DS XL brings fellow players together in exciting new ways with StreetPass communication. Set your Nintendo 3DS XL to Sleep Mode and carry it with you wherever you go to exchange game data like Mii characters, high scores, and custom characters with other users you pass on the street. You control what data you exchange, and you can exchange data for multiple games at once, making virtual connections with real-world people you encounter in your daily life.
Your Nintendo 3DS XL system can automatically connect to a wireless Internet access point. Once connected, special items will download automatically to your system via the SpotPass feature, even while in sleep mode. Some of these surprise items include exclusive content and promotions from Nintendo Zone, unique 3D videos from the Nintendo Video service, and add-on game content from your favorite Nintendo 3DS games.

My first thoughts when opening the new system were "Oh my God this ROCKS!". The screen is the perfect size. I read a lot of reviews about the 3DS XL and saying that the images weren't as sharp, the edges were jaggy, and the 3D wasn't as good. I heavily disagree. I found that the size of the top screen now really enables you to truly appreciate the 3D. I did notice, however, that I can't have the 3D all the way up, like I did before on the original 3DS, because it gets to be too much for me (almost all the way is perfect). I also did notice that if I turn my head I notice the blurriness (from the 3D getting distorted) more than the original, but after fidgeting around with it you get used to how to hold it so that doesn't happen.
I've only played for about an hour or two so far with a few different games, and have to say that I think the colors are more vivid on this. It could be the screen size, but you really see so much more detail than before. Yes, I do think you lose some of the sharpness that the other system had (i noticed a itty bitty bit of boxiness) but again, the pros outweigh the cons. The screen size still captivates you and allows you to see the detail much better than before. I was surprised when I noticed a lot of little things in one of the games that I hadn't before, simply due to screen size.
I really like this little hand-held gaming device. The sound is really good, the buttons are solid, and the overall make of it is pretty impressive. The hinge is different than on the original 3DS, and I'm not sure if it's just mine or not, but it "clicks" when I open it and when I close it. After inspecting it, I think that's the way it's supposed to be, and I think it's actually better built (stability wise) than the original as well.
Overall, I'm very happy with this purchase. I would like to see them drop in price, as $200 is a lot more than I would like to pay for something like this, but oh well.
Highly recommended for all ages.
The control stick; great. Pad, great. The face buttons I get so confused on the letters because of other game systems but whatever. The L and R buttons seem sorta weak, and the select/start/home seem sketchy too. Most importantly the 3D switch is fine, but the actual use of it in a game is crap. You will only use it in cut-scenes in most games because it causes lag.
So thats alot of the bad, and few of the good. I am done with the review, because everything else I didn't mention was because its AMAZING. Its a great system, just those faults I mentioned held it back from 5-stars. Plus they will probably put out a new 3DS in a year or so anyway.
