Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Handheld Console - Red/Black (Nintendo 3DS XL) (Console)
Purchased this pre Christmas as a present for my 10yr old daughter... And it's definitely lasted longer than the turkey sandwiches!
As an upgrade from a DS Lite it was always going to be better but I was pleasantly surprised at how much better it's was in every area. The screen is much larger which makes the games more pleasurable to use even if the 3d effect takes a little getting used to. All the old games appear to be compatible. Battery life considerably better approaching quoted times. Features such as the wifi, Internet browser, Nintendo store, 3d camera (though not the greatest resolution), Motion sensor, etc... Are all nice touches! Plus a free £40 game from the E-shop!
If you are a fan of the Nintendo DS range then you will love the XL version! I would most definitly recommend. Just make sure you purchase at the 'right' price...
