3DS XL - WHITE & MARIO KART 7
Wow, what to say.
I have had my 3ds for over a year and was very pleased with it, although there were a few areas that I felt could be improved, these included:
Absolutely brilliant console. Bought this to replace my older metallic red 3DS of which I was having trouble seeing the screens due to failing sight. The bigger screens are just fantastic, easier to see, and in my opinion the 3D is a lot better and clearer than the smaller model. The battery life is significantly extended and the new design, not so much of a fingerprint magnet. No power adapter? This is because Nintendo might expect you to already have one from a previous model which I did. So glad I havent got another one sitting around doing nothing. For all the people griping about the lack of an adapter then Do Your Research first! And besides it keeps costs down and is only about £7 if you havent got one. Hardly a bank breaker!
I'm a PC gamer, but I grew up with mostly Nintendo consoles and handhelds with my last being the N64, so I bought this in an attempt to relive those great memories and the 3DS XL did not disappoint.
Bought this at a brilliant price back on 21 August 2013 and it's still in pristine condition. I take this with me for my flights all the time especially to Hong Kong (12-13 hours flights) and I never get bored of it. Such a wide range of games available and they are a good change to the JRPG's on PS and the FPS and Racing games on the Xbox (although I still love them).
i'm so glad i finally got one of these :0) i've been playing on my son's since christmas 2011 and so already knew my way round this 3ds, so i decided to treat myself for my 33rd birthday and get one. i have to say that streetpass is such a fun part of it and being able to download games via eshop is such a good feature.
Brought this over buying the New 3DS, slightly regret it now but from playing on this for a few months it has been great. the console its self isn't as heavy as what you would imagine for the size and the large screen makes playing games all that more immersive. It might be worth buying a case or cover for it because both the corners of mine have identical scratches, maybe from transporting it around in just my bag.
I had a choice between this 3ds xl or a standard blue one for which i planned to buy with Pokemon Y, but since this one came with Mario Kart 7 which is a great game for a 1/6 of its average price, I'm glad I chose this model. The white colour is absolutely gorgeous and I now feel that it is better than the blue version as that one was only Blue on the Flap of the 3DS XL.
I love my Nintendo DS and have many games but the screen was badly scratched so I thought I would go XL and I am not disappointed. The XL is heavier but is still comfortable to handle and so far the games I have tried look good on the larger screen. I haven't had the opportunity to use 3D much but the console has a pre-loaded Mario game and there are a few 'playing cards' which when used with the camera have a 3d effect and I did spend a couple of hours trying these out. The graphics were excellent and I particularly enjoyed the ? card which allows you to pose your Mii and take photos, great fun.
Well what can i say, i had this 3ds for 2 years i had fun with it however after using it for 2 years you just get bored of it like any of other electronic device.
My boyfriend purchased this and loves it. He has been glued to it ever since it arrived and showed me the 3D feature which is really cool. He was a little worried about buying a "used" console but it was obvious that it really hadn't been used more than once as it still had the original seals on the packaging.
Excellent all round.
At the time I bought it, this was a good deal. Mario Kart is terrific, the 3DS itself is smooth to the touch and feels sturdy. Mine has been roughed up a bit now but still only a few minor scratches and still looks good. Much, much better than the regular 3ds for its size. Pokemon and Zelda look great on it.
my son loves this handheld with plenty of functions and built in game. This was a good purchase at a good price.
My son loves this the only disappointing thing is that you have to buy the charger separately.
