    In the last Nintendo-Direct Nintendo revealed the 3DS XL(or LL in Japan) it was also revealed that the release date for Japan is July 28 and for US is August 19 but not word was given when it's release date for UK. But today Nintendo revealed that UK will get the 3DS XL on July 28 which is the same date as Japan though still Nintendo hasn't revealed the price yet. It was also confirmed that the 3DS XL will release without a charger because "so many fans already own a previous handheld". Price in US will gonna be $199. UK will get the 3DS XL before US are you (UK) happy with that?

    Even if I am buying the 3DS XL, I will be getting the JPN one. So no difference for me.

    Look at the Flag...
    Only in UK or other countries of Europe are included?

    Don't care about the charger, I've got 4 of those.

    It was written on the NOE website yesterday that the 3DS XL would be released on the 28th July, they even mentioned it'd be released on the same day as two eshop tittles, New Art Academy and Freaky Forms Deluxe or something, not really news... Also, it's not UK, it's NOE coutries, that includes Spain, France, Portugal, UK and a few others.

    Nope, and it's not UK, its EUR (this annoys me seriously), both normal 3DS and XL still have region lock.

    *sigh* Even if we did, we'd still get ripped off with the lousy pricing. Look at the previous consoles. We are always ~$50 to $100 more exp for no good reason even when AUD > USD. Lame.. :hateit:

    That's BS. What about people who buy a Nintendo handheld for the first time? How should they charge the battery without a charger?

    The reason US gets it on August is because of the downloadable games that we will be able to download, starting with NSMB2 which releases on retail and downloadable on the 3DSXL launch date.

    Well it was mentioned that there would be chargers sold separately and Ninty would try their best to ensure that there would be sufficient supply. :|

    Can you do a system transfer of DSi/3DS eShop titles between 2 consoles of the same region??

    Yeah, both system got an update a while ago that lets you transfer stuff from one to another (games and content), it was made mainly for those that decided to upgrade from a DSi to a 3DS.
