Customer Review

on July 29, 2012
It's here! And it's great! (for as far I was able to experience in this short period).

Watch the prices though ! Should be $199, at least that's the Nintendo intended price.
I suspect it will get sold out, here and there, ... prices might go up.
I don't know,... I'd wait till it's available back for 199.

Ah well,... here info you already know... as was released by Nintendo:

* 90% bigger screen
* better battery
* 4-gigabyte SD Card
And so on, and so on...

The info on the product page here is accurate. No need to repeat.

The battery does indeed hold on longer.
It lasted a full 4 hours on a full battery.
I think close to 4,5 hours.
But this was just the 1st time we played it.
I hope it stays like this.
I expect it to. But time will tell.

We haven't use the SD slot yet.
Will update if/when we do.

3D effect much better than on the 3DS.
Seems like the larger screen makes it more immersive.

Kid Icarus is awesome on this thing!

Very pleased with the quality of DS games on the 3DS XL.
Looks quite good. Some colors are (still) just little bit off (imo),... but that doesn't bother us.
Seems like the larger screen, does makes it look better then on the original 3DS.

Good price,
Bigger screen,
Feels good in the hand, (love the rounded edges)
Well balanced,
Controls are good, responsive.
Better battery life,
cool matt finish,
Lot of fun to play,...

We're happy,... for now.

Have fun..... !
