Found 13th Feb 2015
The Nintendo 3DS XL comes in a brilliant white and expands the fun of the Nintendo 3DS with its large screen. The console comes pre-installed with the Super Mario 3D Land game, so you can enjoy gaming on the go straight away.

The Nintendo 3DS XL features a longer battery life than the 3DS and even includes a 4GB SD card, which you can use to store content from the Nintendo eShop.

All 3DS games are compatible with the 3DS XL.

Nice

Not bad at all, is the 3D much better on the newer one compared to this one??? I'm thinking of getting a new 3DS from USA when i go in a few weeks but with my discount this one is significantly cheaper hmmm...

Ave some heat guv

good price with a game (still dunno if to get this 3ds xl or the new version)

I see the normal 3ds has been reduced to £69.

If buy for the US then I believe you will be region lock and only able to play games from the U.S.

I am told the new 3DS's have much better 3D but not seen myself (waiting for my new XL to arrive) but this is an awesome price.

The 3D is much better on the new one, I barely ever used the 3D on my older one, but have had it on constantly over the last month or so on my new one. One thing to remember is if you get a US console it will be region locked, so you will have to import your games.

so would you say as i dont use the 3d part as its not a feature im bothered about that just gettin the old 3ds xl will be good improvement over my old 3ds?

I have the new one and the older one is crap compared

bought this at Christmas time when it was 130 so excellen t price now. heat added

how do you claim the 28 day difference refund thingy?

This is a very tempting offer but the one thing I can't stand about Nintendo is that the games hold their price even after many years...I could easily be spending another £100 buying 3-4 games for it. On my vita I have tonnes of great games for next to nothing.

If you don't use the 3D then the XL is still an excellent deal at this price as the screens are very good, if there was a choice at the time they offered the ambassador editions I would have gotten an XL as I find the larger screens easier on my eyes when I'm not wearing my glasses. That being said, the new 3DS' screens are a bit bigger anyway so I am getting on fine with the standard one and as mentioned before the 3D works almost perfectly now so it might be something you would use in the future.

Good price but consider getting the new one from Amazon.fr for an extra £40

Or just get yourself a Gateway card.

Dont you need a 3DS on an earlier firmware for that?

I believe these models are on a low firmware but it doesn't matter now, as long as it is 9.2 or below. So if it hasn't been updated in last month or so you can use gateway.

CAn I go in store and buy this for the online price ?

Trouble is im gonna get a New 3DS-XL as i love the 3D its just a pain and to awkward to use (keep losing the sweet spot) but that wont be a problem on the new 3DS's wonder if they will be able to support the New 3DS's firmware then.

Excellent find... was about to place an order on Amazon France site !!!

As far as I know the 3ds was luckily on 9.2 so worked but not sure on the Xl, they might be on 9.4. Hopefully the gateway team will be quick and update software for new updates. I was going to sell mine as never used it but once gateway updated to work with newer firmware I decided to keep it. I hope I get. Bit more use now.

My new 3DS-XL firmware is 9.5.0-22E

Great price, I bought same for £139 before Xmas. Headphone socket didn't work, STILL with Nintendo awaiting parts. Don't acknowledge emails, recorded delivery letter, can't get it back to get refund from Tesco so I can get latest model instead..

really...i know where there is one !!!!

Good deal, personally I will be going trading in my original 3DS at Game to get the new XL for £125. There seem's like some decent improvements and I'm getting £55 for my old one which isn't bad at all!

I will probably just trade mine in, would rather buy in the UK incase of any faults/warranty issues.
