Well Nintendo did it again! From opening the box to holding it in my hand this system has blown all my expectations. Crisp screens, button layouts, and the joysticks it is a console well put together. Got this for the legend of zelda: ocarinA of time he'll of a game on this system with the new 3d features. I have no negatives to give on this review but I can't find one!

4/5 stars

The only complaint i have is not the fault of Best Buy, but of Nintendo, i was disappointed and annoyed to know that i had to buy a charger for my 3DSXL because they do not come in the box. The rumour is due to cost is what i heard, but what's the point if they're making us buy a charger and having us pay separately and more money anyways? This doesnt make any sense. Other than that, i love the systdm!

no charge and bad expirence in 3D version

That is so bad this product without charge and with this high price.and 3D version is also bad and useless

  • from Toronto, ON

great service over all

The product was a gift to someone , that someone is happy, it came promptly via Canada Post, that's the only fault I found, for the price of the item, Canada post should have at least knocked at my door instead of leaving it between my screen/wood doors. Other than that, this isnt' the only item I've bought through Best Buy and their service is always spectacular

Nintendo does NOT include a charger with this! I've purchased other small electronics that do not include a charger but they all use standard USB, which everyone has kicking around these days for phones and the like. Not Nintendo. The connector is not standard. I predict a lot of disappointed kids this Christmas and a rush on chargers come boxing day.

Nice purchase

Pros: Big screen, good battery life, lots of nice games Cons: No chat system

Great but

The system is top quality, as expected from Nintendo. HOWEVER, I absolutely detest that I have to upgrade my perfectly-fine 3DS to this - ultimately the same system with a few better tweaks, just to play some games. I know I know, "advancements of technology" BUT STILL. I am grudgingly loving it.

Great Upgrade

I bought this about a week ago, and I'm already impressed. Basically this is the already amazing 3DS XL, but MUCH better. The build quality certainly feels much better, and I love the addition of the new C-Stick control. And now, the 3D feature really works, now that it's face tracking, and it works VERY well. The new layout takes a while to get used to, but I find it is better than previous generations. Amazing, just simply amazing.

Dead Pixels Galore!

Beside all the pros of this console, there is one major problem with it from what I found out first hand ... First 3ds: Dead Pixel in the middle of the screen Second 3ds: 2 Dead Pixel not an inch apart. Had to return both, got money back. It is a great console, but having cheap LCD with dead pixels is unacceptable in 2015. It's a shame and now I have to wait and hope for eventually get a defect free new 3ds.

The definitive version of 3DS

Originally, I wanted the Majora's Mask edition but wasn't lucky enough to secure a pre-order. I ended up reserving a black one for in-store pickup on launch day. And I have no regrets. This black console looks really cool with a nice shine and feels sturdier inside out than the previous models which I also own. The screen is definitely more vibrant. I am very much impressed by the super stable 3D. I have been replaying some older releases like Starfox and Street Fighter IV. The 3D isn't affected by the constant button smashing. No more flickering. No more settling back to 2D. No more frustration. I can play on the bus and in my bedroom with all lights off. The experience is great! (like a true 3D gaming experience is finally realized by the console). I feel more attached to this model than the previous ones. With auto-brightness, the battery lasts longer as well. The weight is just right for me to hold in a prolonged period of time. But I am an adult. Kids may find it heavy. Note: Nintendog is the only game in my library that somehow cannot display in stable 3D.

New 3DS Is Awesome

I have tried it in the store and i must say the new controls are really nice. The 3d is alot better then the current 3ds. I Moved the new 3ds around and it never lost the 3d effect. The C stick works really well. I Would Recommend This 3DS To Everyone!
