Still a better buy than a Neo Geo X Gold or second Vita.


I am guilty of doing this.


You could make money from the white vita if you got it from the Amazon deal.

Terribly excited by this. Kicking myself for having sold my old Ambassador OG 3DS so I can't transfer all of my sweet games to this new one.

But are the XLs really all that much better than the OGs? Other than the bigger screen real estate?

For me, the buttons just feel better. Had to exchange my first 3DS because the D-Pad didnt even work properly.

The D-Pad on mine always seemed so squeaky/flimsy too, not having that problem with my XL. Also, hitting the sweet spot in 3D seems a lot easier now for me

Ugh, if it were an XL I'd buy in a heartbeat. But I just cant go back to that small screen, no matter how badly I want.


Word. I have a 3DS and while I like it, I can't help looking back at my DSi XL and thinking that I should've waited on the 3DS. This bundle in XL would probably push me to ditch my purple 3DS and upgrade.

lol. Sorry if 4 points that are completely accurate constitute trolling. :roll:

If you want to dispute any of the points I made above, please feel free. However, if all you're gonna do is accuse me of trolling without any basis, then go pound sand.

It wasn't about the 4 points, and you're always the pessimist of a lot of threads, from what I've read. So, yes, it does constitute as a troll.

Don't worry, I pound sand every day, just as you bite off your finger nails when you don't agree with someone. :roll:

Yes, because a couple of forum threads are indicative of what the gaming population as a whole want.

I've come to the conclusion that anyone who uses the word troll now is on the losing side of the argument.

And, I could come to the conclusion that anyone who begins with a cynical response is on the losing side of contributing to a valid point or even society. There was no argument to begin with, so settle down.

As for the Fire Emblem bundle, I do wish this was XL since I wanted my first [3DS] to be a LE. Like others, I also wish the game came as a hard copy so if I do decide to get the next gen "DS," I could play it there without having to rely on third party gadgets. In the end, I'll probably still buy this because it looks beautiful and I enjoy the series like others here.

Well if its MSRP at around $160 I can finally justify getting it, the crummy color choices have helped me hold out, but I can finally say it's one i'd like to own, however I might buy two, one to keep sealed, but if it IS $200 forget it maybe just one to collect, with the sales they had on em recently If its for personal use I can hold out for another, also when the new consoles are announced released expect a price drop.

I'm a pessimist? I'm the ultimate motherfucking optimist. I love most games and say more against the ridiculous tide of haters on CAG than anyone else.

You should check your facts. Or maybe look up the word pessimist. Unless they changed the definition to "has little tolerance for people talking out of their asses," I am not a pessimist.

Don't come in here and accuse me of being a troll, then say that being pessimistic is being a troll. Do you know what trolling even is?

I'm 100% shocked that books still exist in today's day and age. I thought they'd be out by now. They make up like 1% of today's entertainment and unless you're 60 or older, stray away from books and start emersing yourself with real entertainment.

I think you need to spend some time doing research into what a troll is. Nintendonly is the ultimate troll sharing such gems as that military personnel are overpaid moochers always demanding discounts. Nintendonly is also trolling in this thread by posting a deal and then promptly criticizing both Nintendo and anyone who could possibly prefer a 3DS to a 3DSXL. All Confoosious did was to point out why this is likely a 3DS instead of a 3DSXL and basically defended the deal. No trolling on his part at all.

Having the game preinstalled is a massive disappointment and a deal breaker for me. Shame too, because the 3ds looks amazing.

So you jump to use the word troll, use that stupid ass rolling eyes smiley, and then over-react and say you think I don't contribute to society based on a single response to you. Yep, I know your type.

For the last time guys, stop saying it should of been an XL. This came out in Japan before the XL was revealed that's why It's not an XL. The only XL I'll pick up would be that sweet Charizard XL or the Pikachu XL

I believe the game comes out first week of february. So no earlier than the game's street date. I really want it, but I'm planning on upgrading my pc a couple months after that. :( I really wanted this LE too. Might have to just bite.

There's not much time until the game releases, right (February 4th, from the looks of it). I'm a little surprised they announced the bundle so near the game's launch, and it doesn't look like they're giving anyone a large window of opportunity for grabbing it beforehand, either.

I hope some retailer puts 'em up for preorder soon - I'd feel antsy if it was something you couldn't and i had to run around to find before it disappeared forever (unless I felt like paying $400).

Well although the obvious glaring truth here is that we (most of us) aren't in Japan and they could have modified and released this on the XL here. Realistically though you are probably right and they wouldn't change up things too much here.

I just wonder if anyone from NoA reads posts on here or any other site of people saying, "please just give us something besides the kid-friendly Red/Blue choices we have now...we'll literally buy ANYTHING else"

I've never used one, but with the increase in battery life and apparent screen quality and 3D effect, it seems like what most of us wanted from the 3DS from the get-go...minus that second analog stick of course...yes Kid Icarus, you needed this!

The screen quality isn't any better. In fact, it's the same, but looks slightly worse since it's blown up to a bigger size. Also, I find the 3D on my launch 3DS to pop a lot more than the XL I had and returned. I value less pixellation, better pocketabiltiy, and poppier 3D. I think the next 3DS revision will make a lot of XL owners jealous, which is what I'm holding out for.

I still maintain that an analog stick doesn't allow for the quick movements the touch screen does, but to each their own, I suppose.

I'm personally torn between the two.

XL: I love the large screens, placement of the stylus, and buttons below the screen (Home button, etc). Quality in most games looks very good.

Original: I love the size overall-the feel in my hands is much better (way less cramping while playing). I like the screen better, less jagged edges (ex: Heroes of Ruin looks decent on the original 3DS, while it looks like crap on the XL.) Overall, the system looks and feels like it is a higher quality system vs the XL and I actually prefer the glossy black to my red XL. The 3D works better for me on the original 3DS as well, as I am constantly losing the 3D effect on my XL and it quickly hurts my eyes. It also helps that I have the analog stick add-on for games that support it.

I honestly haven't noticed much of a battery difference between the two. I know the XL is technically better, but I can not tell the difference. I am still plugging the thing in every other day to charge it like the original. The battery also dies within several days of being in standby mode (just like the original).

I am REALLY tempted to trade my XL for $177 on amazon and stick with my original 3DS. I have had the thing since launch day, but have constantly felt like going back to my original system. I know I would miss the larger screens, but the screens on the original just look so much crisper and I could actually carry the system in my pocket again. I wish Nintendo would just let me have my account registered on two systems at once :(
