Yes, i am aware a new 3ds is due for release here very soon and maybe worth the wait for some. but my 6 year old wont care and not sure what catalogue of games are worth the extra for new one anyway.

also this price on amazon currently.
#2
you gotta admit, they're doing their best to get rid of old stock before the new 3ds
#3
I have a 2ds, probably will get a new 3ds when its available.
#5
Any idea when the new 3DS is out? Been thinking off getting a 3DS or a 2DS but if there is a new one coming out I might as well wait.
#6
I heard February March time but who really knows.
#7
Anywhere else other than 365 games you can get the new 3DS XL as they are out of stock? If anyone knows. Not ebay either thanks in advance
#8
Anyone who bought one from Amazon in the last 30 days for a higher price can request a refund if the difference
#9
This isn't even the old 3DS, this is the old-old 3DS. The 3DS XL is technically old now also with the updated model on the way. Got my kid the now "old" 3DS XL for Xmas and can't understand why anyone would prefer the tiny screen and poor battery life of the ancient 3DS model. I'd be expecting at least 1 or 2 games included at this price if buying the old-old model, not that I would though.

Old screen terrible battery life?????

First off games look much better on this version as they are not stretched to fit the screen.

Battery life is fine just charge it at night and you're good to go each day.

I go this 3ds on release and tbh there were no games.... never ever get a console on release there is just nothing to play! Look at the xbox one and ps4 nothing!! You pay nearly double and then get bored because there's nothing released! Wait a year let the price drop and devs pump some games out then buy.

These sell 66 quid back to amazon for credit so for 80 quid its a good deal imo.

Yes terrible battery life compared to the new XL, thats a fact, XL has far longer battery life (essentialy because its a bigger and better battery). And in turn the new XL model soon to be released in UK will further improve battery life. Also the larger screen is widely believed to be the screen size the 3DS should always have been, as the resolution comfortably works within the larger screen. They may sell well on amazon today for credit, but what about tomorrow and next week. I just can't see the point in buying such old technology, that is more limiting, but each to their own.

Battery life is a TINY big better :\ the screen is crap though and stretchs games to make them look awful, if the games were designed for this screen why do they look crap on it?

The xl screen flops about too its nowhere near the quality of the first 3ds, the weight on them tiny latches is just not properly supported.

Overall the first 3ds is the better console, this is not just my opinion google it.....
#13
^ I prefer the original 3DS over the XL too.
#14
So tempting, but I want to wait out for the New 3DS, only reason why I haven't bought one from Simply games is because it comes with no warranty

This is nonsense, the battery lasts almost double that of my 3DS and I consider that to be substantial improvement. The larger screen does not stretch or lead to pixelated presentation. If you look at the 3DS specs in detail you will see the graphics capability comfortably supports a larger screen size, and the 3DS XL has the screen it should always have been. If you like looking at tiny images on a tiny screen however and using old technology then fair enough, but it doesn't mean your old technology is better. My kid, wife all prefer the 3DS XL and when we played with other family at Xmas using their old 3DS's the kids all wanted to use my kids bigger screen 3DS XL. And if that isn't enough for you, a hard fact is the new model of the 3DS XL about to be released in the UK does increase the graphics resolution and further improve battery life again, which are some of its main selling points. I would have bought my kid the new model, had it not been for Xmas, that said I am impressed with the existing 3DS XL and it easily out does the 3DS.

Screen flopping has not been a problem either. You have either seen/used a faulty 3DS XL or one that hasn't been looked after well. My kids 3DS XL screen is rock solid and locks in well to any angle.

It may be because it is supplied and sold from abroad and as such is not applicable to UK consumer law and warranty conditions. Best to wait perhaps now, it isn't too long until they are released here. I will probably buy one for my wifes birthday.

For anyone still on the fence, ignore some of the other comments. They are blown out of proportion.

Battery Life
The 3DS has a standard Li-on 3.7V 1300mAh
The 3DS XL has a standard Li-on 3.7V 2500mAh

The increase in mAh is to compensate for the bigger screen.

The average difference between both battery's accounts to just under 1 hour. (This will be consistent if you are aware on how you are suppose to charge Li-ons correctly and if you are using the original charger)

Optional larger battery's are available ranging up to 5000mAh for both consoles. This may increase game play time up to 20 hours. Remember not all battery's are the same.

Screen

A few have mentioned screen quality is poorer on the XL and some have said its poorer on the 3DS but this is only in certain games not completely across the board.

The 3D angle on the XL is wider meaning it can go out of focus easier than its predecessor with the smaller screen.

There is no difference in image quality between the two. One is bigger and one is smaller. It makes no difference to the game play. As previously mention above kids like things bigger as they believe bigger is better. (This isn't the case with certain games as mentioned previously above)

Both devices have exactly the same colour count. The XL resolution is stretched on the top screen from 400x240 to 800x240 (Required for 3D) this is what causes some games to look terrible.

The only other comment/advice I can make is put yourself in this situation, you watch a film downstairs on your 50" TV you watch it again 1 month later in the bedroom on your 32" TV. Did it effect the film at all ? Your going to enjoy the game play either way.

Almost double the battery in the 3DS XL just for an increased screen size? Thats nonsense. That only partially accounts for the increase in battery size. It is mostly just for increased gaming hours. I will repeat myself in saying the 3DS XL has the screensize the 3DS should have always had. The 3DS was really just a bridge between the DS and the polished, more finished 3DS model, via the 3DS XL update. The 3DS XL also processes a lot faster than the 3DS, quite notable when browsing the Eshop and so on. The 3DS XL will comfortably outlast a 3DS in battery life if used in the same way by several hours.

Also you have to be very careful before jumping into larger 5000mAh batteries and so on, there have been a few who have had overheated systems, or batteries melting into the console.

It's nearly double the mAh, but that doesn't mean double the battery life :) It still has the same amount of Cells (1).

Yep going for 3rd party battery's can always be risky if you don't test them, it's always worth testing and balancing all rechargeables you purchase if and when possible as all battery's are different. If the voltage is incorrect or it overcharges that can cause problems (Swelling) but that's the same with all battery's, the standard Nintendo provide would be tested to make sure they are exactly 3.7v atleast they aren't Li-po that can explode! :)

I've purchased the White XL for £95 via Tesco using a few vouchers. Fingers crossed it's worth it.

Will agree with you as technically it is not a longer life span for the battery, but the less frequent charging probably gives argument to that aspect. I was more meaning in my poor wording that the life span of a single charge is longer on the 3DS XL by which I base on having both a 3DS and XL and using both in similar fashion. I can guarantee you will find the 3DS XL faster at processing. Please update us with your own opinions, particularly re screen size. I found it pretty confusing what I wanted to do for my kids Xmas pressie, and my own family told me the 3DS XL was to heavy for kids little hands. My 6yr old had no probs with his 3DS XL or holding it. Absolutely no regrets, I just suggest being weary and trying things out for yourself to anyone as there is lots of confusing comments all over the internet on 3DS v 3DS XL. I'd also say to anyoneiIf you can't get hold of someones 3DS XL to try yourself, they have some on display you can play at my local ASDA/TESCO/SMYTHS.
