4.0 out of 5 stars Nice console 6 Feb 2014
By Jemmaeg
Edition:Black Standard Edition
I bought the 3DS XL as an impulse buy, I had a gameboy pocket years ago and a Nintendo DS more recently and I wanted to play new games in series like Zelda and also the retro games available on the Nintendo store.
In general I like the 3DS XL, the console is a good size, the right balance between being portable and having a good screen size.
It is incredibly simple to set up as there are continuous step-by-step instructions on screen, however you do need to set up each app separately, which does mean repeating your information a few times. The OS/software is clearly aimed at young children and parents and you are prompted to set up parental controls several times (which is slightly irritating if you are neither a young child nor a parent). I think that it is a really nice idea that you can earn "play coins" to spend in games by using the pedometer function on the 3DS.
The screen quality is acceptable (as its not designed to be a graphically realistic console). The camera quality is quite poor and seems to be more novelty value than a useable camera.
I would recommend the 3DS for its 3D effect and games, however I found the OS irritatingly childish (especially as the 3D mode should only be used by over 7's).

I deducted a star for it not coming with a charger, I was aware of this before buying however I see no logical reason why it does not come with at least a USB charging cable. I could understand if it charged via a generic cable like a micro USB, but it doesn't, its a Nintendo specific charging cable. Including a USB charging cable would cost them next to nothing (there is one for sale on Amazon for £0.25!) and take up very little room in the box - there is actually enough space in there for a USB charger with the current box design.

5.0 out of 5 stars Best Handheld game console on the market 20 July 2014
Edition:Black Standard Edition|Verified Purchase
I have a PSVita which is a more powerful device with more features but I've bought this for my 11 year old son and I have to say that this handheld is great! Way better than a Vita.

I reccomend this console for hardcore Nintendo fans or if you have children If you have a kid between 6 and 14 years. Don't buy a Vita nor a Tablet or iPad. This is better for them believe me.

5.0 out of 5 stars The gamer console 16 April 2014
By ish
Edition:Black Standard Edition|Verified Purchase
With the library of games this system has to offer and the Nintendo e-shop+virtual console, this is the best console i have ever owned. The design and materials feel premium unlike the 3ds and the screens are amazing! The 3d is actually implemented really well into the games such as Super Mario 3D Land.

5.0 out of 5 stars Blown away by a fantastic upgrade 28 Aug 2014
Edition:Black Standard Edition|Verified Purchase
Immeasurably superior to the standard 3ds (the 2012 model from which I upgraded); the larger screens are noticeably larger and more comfortable to look at, and the feel of the console itself is markedly better. Small features like the screen clicking into place make this an all-around better console. One feature I was disappointed not to see was the lack of the "3D" icon lighting up in 3D-enabled portions of games, but that is a small feature and one I can get by without. I would unreservedly recommend this console, especially given the fantastic library of games the 3ds can currently offer. Buy it without hesitation.

5.0 out of 5 stars Son is very happy! 25 May 2014
Edition:Black Standard Edition|Verified Purchase
I bought this for my 7 year old son for Christmas. He absolutely loves it.
I'd avoided buying it for a while as I was worried about the 3d effect on his eyes. I didn't need to worry as he doesn't really like the 3d effect so normally turns it off anyway.
I'm sure his younger brother will be asking for one as well this coming Christmas.

Its a fantastic console and has a range of good games to play on. The only thing that annoyed me was the fact that there was no charger with the console.
