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 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 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 Excellent console 29 Dec 2012
By Elaine
Verified Purchase
This console looks cool with Pikachu on it, its lighter than the previous XL model with an even bigger upper screen and more added features such as Mii Plaza, Mii Maker, Nintendo video, activity log and more. I bought this console for my 8year old for Christmas and he loves it, I am tempted to get one myself.

Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
Before ordering I was aware that you don't get the charger with this console so please buy one at the same time if you do not already own a newer Nintendo DS with the light grey colour charger. I'm not even a Pikachu fan but we all love this - Firstly, when I ordered it, for some reason I just expected it to be a yellow console so it was a genuine surprise to have the Pikachu face on it. With the inner being white this is an absoloutely stunning console with no reflections off the casing to distract you from your gaming. My daughter is 9 - She loves it, I'm a big kid at 43 and I love it too! Besides, if you ever get bored with it, you can always buy a sticker skin of your choice off eBay. Once switched on, The 3DS XL console is also a fabulous product. It's easy to set up to your preferred settings and comes with some fun pre-loaded games. Essentially, the same but bigger! To summarise, if you're stuck for a colour, go for this one :-)

5.0 out of 5 stars The best 3DS XL ever 17 Dec 2012
Verified Purchase
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
Bought this item from Amazon as it was far cheaper than on the GAME website. Ordered the item late on Friday and as stated it duly arrived very early Saturday morning, very happy. Makes a prefect gift. Okay the item does not come with a charger, but as a Nintendo fan, I have a few. Unboxed the item and set it up in readiness for my son opening it on Christmas Day. Well done Nintendo, a fully charged system, so if you have not got a charger, you can still play it and wait for the shops to open Boxing Day without a disappointed child on your arm !! requiring only a few steps to set up and go. Even better, it comes with a free bonus downloaded game so will be buying Mario 3D Land in January.

The Pikatchu 3DS looks fab, well made, easy to handle, has a great feel, well made and very solid, but light, great larger screen and the 3D viewing is brilliant. Well worth a rating of 5 stars

I'm sorry, I just can't help but think that the positioning of the cameras looks like pikachu's got nipples....
