    I still like the original. It's perfect for when I'm going out in public. This one is meant for at home use. I'll gladly get this one as well. Depends on the price though.

    I'm guessing it's so fucking ugly because Nintendo wants it to integrate it with the Wii U.

    Engine Room with Cyan, watching him learn.
    Why in the hell didn't ninty announce this at e3? WHY? Instant e3 victory if they had. :rofl2:

    And omg, there is a frame around the bottom screen. Oh sht, not again.
    Please tell me Nintendo has learned from the issues* with the og 3ds. :P

    *Edit: Nevermind, I see bumpers above the top screen. Phew.

    Why wouldn't xl use flashcarts?
    They forgot 2nd circle pad and camera flash.
    Hopefully there's a power grip pro xl coming out.
    That would be so huge lol
    Wonder if that's the final design. Any word on specs like if the screens or cameras will be better?

    oh btw, it doesn't come with an AC Adapter, you have to own one already or buy one seperately... Retarded as shit.
    and also just confirmed, no charging dock.
