4.0 out of 5 stars Watch 3DS XL review on youtube.com, 24 Nov. 2012

This review is from: Nintendo Handheld Console 3DS XL - White Limited Edition with Mario Kart 7 (Nintendo 3DS) (Video Game)
The 3DS XL is an excellent and much needed upgrade on the old 3DS model. The depth perception on the 3DS XL is much better allowing for smoother 3D viewing. The 90% bigger screen size is fantastic, but sadly Nintendo never increased the screen resolution, they've meerly stretched it giving slight barely noticable pixelation. The stylus is situated in a much easier place on the right hand side for quicker access, although they've ditched the microscopic stylus and gone for a cheaper, tackier plastic version. The smoothed sides are a welcome change to the sharpened and often painful edges of its smaller brethern. The matt white finish is easier to clean compared to the glossy finish of the smaller 3DS, no longer leaving your 3DS with more marks than my partner.

The only problem I have with the 3DS XL is the fact they've neglected to include a 3DS charger. It's a pathetic way to treat customers.

On to the specifics of this Limited Edition console - The only reason I've ordered this version is because of the colour. The other default 3DS XL colours make the console look like something out of a childs bargain bucket. Having a game pre installed is a nice touch, you can pick up a 3DS XL and a game for £200 so the price difference is non existent to perhaps a tiny bit less. And who doesn't love Mario Kart?
