Definitely sleeker than the previous model! Love the sleek curve on the right, makes for a more comfortable experience. This will go great with the release of MH3 Ultimate and MH4 soon after. I can't wait to re-play RE: Revelations and KH:DDD with this on my XL! I never expected to miss my original so bad...

The circle pad pro is a slap in the face and illustrates how the 3ds is an incomplete handheld system.

"Definitely sleeker than the previous model!"

.....except now you'll need to keep it in a suitcase to travel with it.

I can't believe Nintendo made the almost exact same mistake as the PSP. Now many games are going to be normalized with sub-par controls and only a couple given optional circle pad pro controls.

I'm so disappointed with the new handhelds. They're hardly "portable" (3DS included after accounting for a circle pad pro) and 3DS didn't normalized dual sticks.

Heck, I'd rather have a 2D platform that's actually portable.

I love that instead of simply integrating it into the new model, they just made another stupid attachment. /s This is SARCASM. I think this was a very poor choice. So now we have to buy another attachment for a new model. Why would they do this? Integration would open the system up for more opportunities than just an expensive optional attachment. And I said this, like many of you, when the XL came out. Why wouldn't they just put the damn thing in the system in the first place?

I can only imagine how huge that will make the 3DS

I really want to buy a 3DS (specially the XL, I think the 3DS screen is way to small), but argh... That circle pad is just pathetic. Bad design choices at its best.

There's just so much space under those ABXY buttons!
