Nintendo of America has announced the 3DS XL for the US.
WTF!!!! Why they never mention this at E3?
I agree, but I think they wanted to focus on the Wii U during E3.
They failed even doing that properly..
I was actually waiting for something like this.
Remember that it doesn't have a AC adapter. I don't even know what they were thinking not including it.
At ign it says that an AC adapter comes with the 3DS XL...but only in North America.
Confirmed by multiple sources ^^^^ NA release will have an adapter.
SHOCK! /sarcasm Nintendo are liars. Remember how they denied a 3DS XL a few days ago?
what they denied was an upgrade/modification, which this is not.
actually this is a modification... and what he is talking about is about a rumor from Nikkei stating nintendo would reveal a 3DS XL which Miyamoto denied. So technically he is right, they "lied" but more than anything for obvious reasons... would you rather show a new product in a Nintendo Direct Conference, or just have someone tell in an interview the rumor is right and not show anything
This was rumored for E3, so I figured it would be coming sooner or later. Those screens look sexy, and a $199 price point with it coming with a memory card is a perfect example on how to put a package together. I'm definitely interested.
I haven't bought a 3ds yet(been waiting for the upgraded version). As long as the bigger screen doesn't make the graphics look worse, I think I'll buy this one...
Great, no second analog stick. Are they going to make a whole new add on for the xl? Guess Ima go with the first model.
Perfect timing with Kingdom hearts coming up :D
Wow, not even a mention of a of a circle pad XL, which may actually cost MORE, let alone a second circle pad built in...
Straight from the IGN article: "While reports earlier tonight indicated that the Japanese and European versions of the system will not include an AC adapter, Nintendo of America has confirmed that the North American version of the 3DS XL will include an AC adapter in the package. A 4GB SD card will also be included with the system." http://www.ign.com/articles...
is anyone else having problems replying or editing your comments??? i get an error page everytime i try
ill wait for one with 2 circle pads built it. Already have the original, dont see a reason to upgrade.
You may never get it, you realize. Their hesitation is probably due to the difficulty in making previously released games compatible with a second analogue.
all they have to do is not assign it for use on older games.. Its not difficult to do.. This new model proves that they arent releasing any major titles with ccp support.. if they make a ccp for this behemoth, it will be MASSIVE.. your going to need cargo pant pockets for this
So, you don't bring games that require CCP on the go. Not everyone uses handheld consoles on the go, you know. And every game does not have to be played away from home. Just because a system has mobility doesn't mean you can only use it on the go. Do you turn off your cell phone when in your home? Cell phones are mobile devices, so you are saying they are only useful outside the home and that is the only place they should be used? I think the big problem here is that consumers type-cast products as only useful in certain situations.
Here is the thing. Why is there not 2 circle pads? I am dumbfounded as to why they would not include this?
@Onilink yup, I was having trouble yesterday too. I can't even reply to you to tell you that I can't reply to you!
IT's IN 3D!!!
I was waiting to see what sort of revision or upgrade they would put together for the 3ds. I'll probably pick one up now. The screen looks freakin massive compared to the original.
that WHITE 3DS LL seriously tempt me to purchase another 3DS................ Stop tempting me!
