"Re-releasing your hardware with just a slight physical upgrade is not a new thing; the practice dates back to the days of the Atari 2600 and the Intellivision. Not much has changed with modern day gaming – just ask Nintendo, who have become famous (infamous?) for updating their systems without really adding any new features, particularly their handhelds. The 3DS is the latest handheld to fall victim to the upgrade gods, this time it's been super-sized, and re-branded as the 3DS XL.", writes MTV Multiplayer.
