Very nice looking and feeling

I got this while it was on special. I will say it's worth the price. The screens are much bigger than 3DS and I am looking forward to playing upcoming games on 3DS.

I've owned the original 3DS since launch day, and to be honest, it was cool and all, and had some great games, but after a while I stopped playing it. The longest I played it (on a daily basis) was about a week, and that was when ocarina 3D came out. I wasnt planning on buying this, but took advantage of the trade in promotion, and wow, even if I had paid for this, it would be so worth it. This upgrade improves upon the original in almost every since way, aside from performance. Everything about the graphics and brightness etc is exactly the same, but the extra money you pay over the original is worth every penny because of: the large screens which really make this system feel better, the rounded edges and size for more comfort in larger hands, the stylus on the side, the clickable 3D slider, and even the fingerprint-proof matte finish. If you own an old 3DS and dont like the design, and have money to spend, this is gonna do everything but let you down. If you don't have either and are on the fence, this is definitely the better deal long term. I was lucky to find a red one in stock with them being sold out EVERYWHERE, so I nabbed it for the promotion, but now that they're in stock again, I will get the blue one.

3DS XL review

The 3ds xl is a huge upgrade over the original 3ds but the original one is still good too. The Xl benefits from the huge screen upgrade, the improved hindges but the downside is you can't use your circle pad pro or any of the old accessories on it. Games look outstanding and eshop games benefit from the upgrade including virtual console games.
