    Yes.
    What changes do they bring, besides uglier design?

    Also, I wonder if the bottom screen will still scratch the upper one, just like in normal 3DS models.

    God, why did they did that for the first release of XL model ? =__=

    And I do not understand the "faster" part. Will be some games exclusives to this new revision ? :(

    New triggers buttons, better screen (?), R stick, NFC

    Looks like Nintendo is taking a page out of Sony's book with the PSP and just making new hardware revisions for the hell out it

    It actually looks nice and has a second slide pad! fucking finally!
    But I already have a 3DS so not buing it. This version should have happened when they were releasing the 3DS XL and not now.

    Why is the second analog so tiny?

    http://puu.sh/bcBJ3/bcdd8e7c27.png I doubt it. they even moved the start and select button to do it (to a better position imo).

    Wait.
    I might buy this because of the increased CPU. Xenoblade is also being ported exclusively to it.

    this is probably in response to the hacking development going on.. probably more hardware protection that left the current models more vulnerable

    I just finished to watch the Nintendo direct, and this actually looks awesome, No more blurry Screen when you turn the 3DS, C-Stick + LZ RZ, Faster Wifi, Faster CPU, Interchangeable Covers, Big MicroSD, PC-3DS file Browser, etc..., makes the first 3DS look very very outdated.

    Seems a bit like a DSi for the 3DS.

    If they're smart, they'll include a mandatory update on first use. (like xbone)

    hope not

    This is the 3DS console that should of been there from the beginning, the second analog is long overdue. The rest of the changes im on board with, they all look great but its too damn late! Im not buying this to replace my current 3DS and im sure everyone who was on the fence about buying a 3DS before, got one with the XL. Are you really in a position for making ANOTHER console Nintendo? Really?
