Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
I bought this as an early Christmas present for myself and couldn't be more pleased. As a big Pokemon fan (and what Pokemon fan doesn't love Pikachu) I couldn't resist. I already own the Zelda edition 3DS, and this was a nice step up.

So! A few things I looked at when I received it: When the screen is lifted, the inside of the console is a little different than I expected, as it is white and I did assume it to be yellow all over, but this makes it nice to play on as it's the most neutral of colours and yellow may have been distracting. Also, it's a nice touch that Pikachu's tail carries on from the back of the front screen and on to the back of the console. It also has sort of a smooth Matt Finish, unlike the 3DS' glossy finish, which allowed fingermarks all over it, a nightmare for people who like their console's pristine! So no more fingermarks on the 3DS XL.

Comparing this as a 3DS XL to the 3DS and previous DS consoles, I had no experience with 3DS XL's since they have come out, and so had no idea what to expect. But having owned one of every DS console released, I can honestly say this is the best one yet.
The top screen is crystal clear and bright, and much bigger compared to the DSi XL, (and the biggest DS screen yet) which makes it easier to use the 3D and is just overall more comfortable to use. The console itself seems more 'finished', compared to the 3DS which still seemed very much like a prototype from it's appearance when it was released, it was clunky and square and not very attractive. But the 3DS XL has been nicely rounded off to look more like it's from this decade.

This also makes it easier to use as it sits more comfortably in your hand.

5.0 out of 5 stars Pokemon Fan? Do it. You know you want it. 9 Jan 2013
By Conzie
Verified Purchase
I have always wanted a 3DS, but due to many factors including the 3D not particularly working with my dodgy eyesight and the color schemes of previous 3DS' I decided to hold out. I am so glad I did! The yellow and white go together fantastically, plus the 3DS XL has curved edges rather than edged ones of the normal size DS. Battery life for me lasts a good 5-7 hours roughly, however this may be due to the fact I never play with the 3D turned on. Please note it DOES NOT come with a charger, do your research before parting with such a large amount of money! Above all if you are a pokemon fan this will please you to no end. A must have and at a very reasonable price! If you are on the fence go for it as it is limited edition and with the recent Pokemon X & Y announcement won't be in stock much longer.

5.0 out of 5 stars Impressed! Excels in both design and function. 30 Dec 2012

Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
Prior to purchasing this Pikachu 3DS XL, the most recent version of the Nintendo DS that I owned was the original silver 'brick-like' DS. Boy, how things have moved on! I've been thinking about upgrading for years, but it was the unique 'Pikachu' design that really won me over; I'm so pleased that for once such a design has been released outside of Japan!

Concerning the quality of the console itself, I'm equally as impressed with it's functionality as I am with it's façade; the picture quality is amazing, the sound is beautiful, the 3D effects are simply 'WOW!'.
Even though I've got small hands and wrists and this is an 'XL' model, I find it light and manageable to hold; no muscle strain whatsoever. Whilst it's light, it also feels durable; the plastic, buttons etc. are of a brilliant quality, not cheap looking at all.

My friend warned me that no charger was included in with the package so I chose to add one in with my order; thankfully they only cost about £5 so it didn't cause me any disappointment.

All in all, a must have for lovers of Pokemon, cuteness and all things yellow!

5.0 out of 5 stars Begrudgingly, I love It 20 Feb 2014
By Francois The Armaldo VINE VOICE
Verified Purchase
Whenever I come back to look at this product page the Amazon Instant Order Update makes me smile, because I purchased it on the 8th January 2013. Any Pokemon fan can probably make an educated guess as to why.

I'm really glad I waited so long to upgrade from my beloved DS Lite, because all of the negative reviews about the 3DS barely holding a battery charge of 3 hours really concerned me. After my DS's 10+ hour charge, 3 hours seemed pitiful. I also did not like any of the colour options available (as at the time Pink, the only one I liked, was bundled with Nintendogs and not available for separate purchase). When I first set eyes on this 3DSXL, I just KNEW it was what I'd been waiting for. I'd already fallen in love with the specs when browsing online reviews - the expanded battery life, the massive screen, oh yes please. And then they went and released it with a bloody great Pikachu on the front. How could any gamer girl pokemaniac of 15 years resist?

I had my DS Lite for 7 years, and it was hands down the best console I'd ever owned. Wifi capability, where before there had only been a cruddy link cable which constantly threatened to pop out and ruin your saved data mid-battle or trade. I could now sit in my bedroom and trade a Totodile with a kid from Japan. What an age we live in! You charged it and could play hardcore for at least a week without needing to plug it in again. The touchscreen interface was easy to learn and a pleasure to use, the screen brightness clear and beautiful and being able to set the console down while playing was a massive advantage(after the Gameboy Advance it was like a mini laptop!). I loved the colour options (mine, a birthday gift, was baby pink). I loved how absurdly light and portable the thing was.
