    I've searched all over and I really hope this thread hasn't already been made.

    So I'm starting up a poll mainly to see if people who already own a 3DS system are gonna upgrade. I think I'm gonna move from a 3DS XL to a New Nintendo 3DS (regular size, because those faceplates are gorgeous, though I'll miss the big screen.)

    I already have one. Got it launch day.

    I have never owned a 3DS before this one though, but feel free to ask me any questions about the system.

    Im getting one. Just trying to find out where to import it from. I live in Sweden so the tax is 25% of the prise if they dont send as a gift. Does anyone know a good site to import from ?

    Sweet! I would have asked if it's worth the upgrade but since you don't own a previous system I guess that's a bit of a useless question, haha

    also Kristoffer the only New 3DS system out right now is the Japanese model, if you import it you won't be able to play any EU games, so I'd say wait for a European release

    I'm grabbing one in the nearby future for sure and I do own a 3DS. In fact, I used to own two, but sold one off recently.

    It depends on how many New 3DS exclusive game will be out there.

    For now, I see no reason for me to upgrade.

    For sure, fast loading times on the OS, downloads and E-shop is good enough. Old 3DS is really slow. I'm really curious to see if devs take use of the extra power. That'd really justify my purchase.

    Hopefully 3DS games will perform better on the new 3DS and a few exclusives here and there.

    No, and I don't know when I plan on getting one, money being the major factor in preventing me from getting one lol.

    I never bothered with the DSi. I just don't see it being a big enough upgrade to justify the cost. Not that I want it to do poorly, I want it to do well so Nintendo can see that's a well received direction to go with on their next generation handheld.

    topic should be the "New 3DS" not "a new 3ds" as it sounds like just that a new as in new to your current 3ds

    Don't think so. There's not much interest I have to get the New 3DS.

    Yes, since I have a vast handheld console collection this will be added to the pantheon

    I'll get one. The slow startup on my regular 3DS is redicilous so Im looking forward to the faster cpu on the new model. And the better/wider 3D viewing angle is another reason I'll get one. I dont know if I'll get one at launch though.

    I plan to get the New 3ds XL when it launch. I already have an XL. Im either going to sell that or give it to someone in the family. I'm mainly looking forward to what games they will make that will use the C stick. I doubt the extra spec would make it a big leap above the normal 3ds.
