    Great design for a great system

    |
    Posted .

    This system is beautiful and costs the same as the regular 3DS XL, however it does not come bundled with the game. That is good anyway for those who prefer physical copies. The finish is glossy and has a shimmer to it, so it is beautiful but it will attract fingerprints more than the standard edition XL consoles which have a matte finish. Also , the XL is very worth the extra 30 bucks over the regular 3DS for much larger screens and easier to read text, build quality, as well as additional storage space. When closed it physically is less than an inch bigger on top and bottom. This system won't be around for long so don't hesitate to pick it up.

    A Collector's Edition

    |
    Posted .

    Basically, this is a standard red/black 3DS LL Console, with a special blue paint which depicts Xerneas and Yveltal. Nothing else is included in the package, including any pre-installed software or any promotional code for future downloads. If you are a dedicated Pokemon Fan, you can consider get this. Otherwise, it's not as good as the previous Animal Crossing version as it comes with a pre-installed software at a total price of 220. In fact, the first unit I received for my pre-order as some issue with functionality. The touch screen does not work at all. After that I went back to store and they gave me a replacement of the same limited version which works great.

    Great Mobile Gaming Device

    Posted .

    When I first ordered the 3DS, it arrived with a wobbly top screen and it made a loud crack-like noise when I opened it up. I looked up reviews and found that it was not normal. I brought it in to Best Buy and they replaced it with no questions asked. The one that replaced my original works great. It is very easy to open and now there is no cracking sound upon opening the device. The games are amazing and the addition of the Nintendo eShop makes awesome downloadable classics available to play anywhere at any time. The device looks great and plays great and I am very pleased with it. Everything about the device, except for he first faulty device mishap, is awesome and provides a great deal of entertainment.

    All around great

    Posted .

    Picked up the new XL 3DS today, when I got home to set it up and use it was easy and straight forward. I like that it gives you so many ways to customize it and make it your own with the internal settings on top of the awesome graphic design on the outside of the DS. Like I said with "what's not so great," I'm worried about it getting scratched...but I think that is something that comes with any handheld. Look forward to using it in the days to come.

    Great Upgrade

    Posted .

    Got matching red and blue versions of this for me and my girlfriend to go with our copies of Pokemon X and Y. Had the original 3DS since launch and had been wanting to upgrade, and this was the perfect chance. The displays are much larger and it's hard to imagine going back to the original model.

    Best handheld console for now!

    Posted .

    I finally bought this after playing almost every current console. I play Pokemon X 100% of the time. Playing is awesome. The case is always getting attention from others. I don't have any issues with getting smudges because I got a clear case for mine. The guy at Best Buy who got this for me and cashier were even Pokemon fans! I can't believe how long this franchise has been going, but this particular case is very nostalgic. I definitely enjoy almost every aspect of it. I say almost everything because I haven't tried the other apps it came with.

    Excellent Product

    The 3DS XL takes what the standard 3DS does superbly and does it bigger and better. The large screens are great for those who need reading glasses, and the XL has significantly longer battery life than its smaller cousin. It's not as portable as the regular 3DS -- something to consider if you carry it in your pockets, as opposed to a bag. But it's also more comfortable to hold; more ergonomic. This Pokemon red model looks much better than the monotone alternatives, in my opinion.

    Great Handheld video game system

    |
    Posted .

    Wow! I purchased this handheld just to play the brand new Pokemon Y and I tell you what I made a great decision. The larger screen compared to the normal 3DS is easily worth the money and the limited edition art makes this thing that much cooler. If you're looking to get a great handheld video game system I would recommend getting a 3DS. Nintendo knows what's up when it comes to handhelds.

    My grandson, Will, had wanted this for about a year so I purchased it for his birthday. He was totally thrilled with it...and best of all I'm the greatest grandmother ever!!!!! My shopping experience at Best Buy in Forsyth was, as always, exceptional. The salesperson was professional and helpful. Thank you so much for making my shopping experience so easy.

    It just brings me back

    Posted .

    This brings me back to my childhood when I used to play with the old clunky 4 battery draining game boy. Now we get two screens, an array of colors and Classic Mario games that I learned to love on the N64. I'm soon going to buy a second one so me and the wife can race each other on Mario kart. The system just works and it's simple nostalgic fun.

    Great Game System with nice deco

    I really like the Nintendo 3DS and it's library of games. My son really wanted this Pokemon Limited Edition. It is much nicer in person than in the photos. I would only recommend the 3ds XL at this point not the small regular 3DS. The bigger screen is such an improvement. Definitely buy the screen protectors. Which brings me to my biggest pet peeve about the DS line. The capacitive touch screen. Really Nintendo, isn't this almost 2014, and we still get this mildly responsive touch screen ( - 1 star )

    I forgot to copy (so I could paste) my review of the blue version... the systems are identical save the themed designs on the top. Please see my review for the Blue (X) version.

    This product was relatively hard to find, but I was able to snag it with store pickup. Definitely a sharp-looking piece of equipment among other 3DS systems. No issues so far.
