Great console!

Definitely a must have handheld console. The graphics are quite lovely and you can actually see them very nicely on the larger screen. I think the bigger screen is a necessity, I've seen the regular size 3ds and the size just isn't as convenient, it's much easier to read things off the larger screen. The console itself feels very solid and I'm not worried about it getting damaged, I do think its important to get the screen protectors though, sometimes the stylus seems to want to scratch at times otherwise. Overall definitely a great purchase, love playing games on this!

For anyone who isn't in the market for the latest 3DS XL (the one with the C-stick), This is a great DS to get especially for anyone that is looking to get their first portable gaming device, or just opting to a newer one.

Pretty cool!

Way better than the DS although the games are a bit pricey and theres not really an amazing selection, but still pretty cool! Also you can play your DS games on here

It's ok and I would recommend it but only on sale. the game selection isn't great since it's a handheld console and the 3d is only useful if you hate yourself and want a migraine. It works well for what it is although it has the standard terrible Nintendo controls and holding it for a long period of time is sure to give you cramps (though it might just be made for smaller hands). If you're going to buy this make sure you are going to get your moneys worth out of the games you are going to buy for it or else wait for it to go on sale.

Great upgrade

This is a great upgrade from the original 3ds. It feels more comfortable to hold than the original and the larger screen is less straining in 3D mode. The battery life is excellent too.

Very impressed with this unit, the biggest picture yet. The 3d is amazing! Highly recommended by my son! He just turned 14 and he was very impressed with all it could do.

3DS XL vs. 3DS?

Love the console. It's just that i play it a lot in bed and holding it up hurts my palm after a while. I wish the design of it fit snuggly on my hands but maybe I should've bought the original one instead of the XL.

Great little handheld

The only reason I picked this thing up was because I heard it had ocarina of time and star fox 64 (two of my favorite games from my childhood.) But I soon found myself just playing around with all the 3D content I could get my hands on. I ended up buying my first ever pokemon game as well. I can honestly say I have never been happier with a handheld purchase and I look forward to checking out all the games I have been missing out on the last few years.

Review Title

I just received the 3DS, and I am going to open up the package now and type my thoughts. - The package came way before it was expected (3 days early) - Opening the shipping bag, I immediately notice that the 3DS box is heavily damaged, 3 of the corners having very concerning dents - As I go to open it, I notice that there are 2 layers of tape on one of the ends, and upon closer inspection it appears that the box has been opened and re-sealed at some point (the bottom layer of tape has been cut, then re-taped) - Inside, I immediately look through the package of manuals, etc. There is a Club Nintendo card with code, a package of AR cards, quick start guides in English, French and Spanish, and a very hefty manual. There is also the AC adapter, and the 3DS - The 3DS itself is pretty nice, but one flaw is that if you are trying to connect to a network that requires a username and password (like a school network), it can't do it. It is a nice system, and is much better than the older DS models, but it has some things lacking. I would also recommend either the more expensive shipping option, or another store.
