damn. I just bought my XL last November. Now you are telling me I have to upgrade again already because it's not powerful enough?

I'm all for redesigns or XL's of the current generation handheld. But not too keen on releasing more powerful units during the same life cycle.

Basically gives a big middle finger to those of us that own the 3DS or XL...

DeforMAKulizer2492d ago

I completely agree...

Im so freaking pissed, because they are so awesome, and yet i basically have to throw away my 3DS XL.

The interchangeable covers are so awesome, and how they change the theme of the menu!

They should have just come out with a completely new powerful handheld, in the form of an 8 inch or 10 inch FullHD tablet but with dual analogue sticks, buttons, triggers, etc etc. Kinda like the controller for the WiiU, but FullHD and stand-alone.

Also, this will once again confuse many potential customers, just like what happened in the move from Wii to WiiU, where many people won't realise the new device is actually new and more powerful...

too bad for early buyers, but i have been waiting for this 3DS for so long!
now give me a release date in europe please!

Now that it means very much, but if you trade in your old 3DS they usually let you transfer your data before you turn it over. That at least can shave off some of the money you have to spend. I have to wait a while before I can get the new model because I'm putting a lot of my cash into a PS4 right now.

same as ds and dsi, come on dont make it seem like this is new

Neonridr2491d ago

still a pain when I just got it less than a year ago.

plus I don't believe Nintendo ever made software that only worked on the DSi, so I would say that is a poor comparison.

Neonridr2491d ago

I don't believe Nintendo has ever released software that only worked on one model in the same generation before. So don't tell me that this is to be expected.

When they had the DS, DSi, DSi XL there was never a game that only worked for one but not the others.

I don't have any issues with revisions, the 3DS to the XL was only natural and to be expected. But not a 3DS with a better processor inside. Nintendo isn't Apple.

DSi had dsiware... Eshop type games only on dsi .. So nintendo has done it.

jaymacx2491d ago

I do know why they are making xenoblade for the new 3DS because they want to ignite 3ds sales in Japan with a well made RPG

Vegamyster2491d ago

If there is a trade in program i won't have an issue.

Actually, the 3DS' hardware is more powerful than the Wii's hardware.

Metallox2491d ago

For some reason though they needed to make a slightly more powerful one.

KonsoruMasuta2492d ago

I have been praying for this day for a long time.

My prayers have been answered! Xenoblade Chronicles on the go!
I thought this would never come.

It's like Iwata looked into my soul and saw my deepest desires!

PlayableGamez2491d ago (Edited 2491d ago )

So you are okay with buying a whole entire new 3ds for one game?

Revengeance2492d ago

So glad I waited to buy a 3DS. And now this!

Hope this gets localized also!

thehobbyist2491d ago

Shulk's in Smash. I'd only be surprised if they DIDN'T localize it.
