Played my 3DS for the first time this summer today. Spent and hour or two with KI: Uprising. It's so damn good. Took me 30 minutes just to beat chapters 2 + 3. There are 25 in total, tons of skills/equips, and online multiplayer on top of that. So much content. To date, the only 3DS game I've beaten is Starfox 64, and that's because it only took an hour to run through the game once, lol. So many games to play..so little time.

Looking forward to Heroes of Ruin and KH3D still.

Just announced:




Not a huge fan of the design, and it doesn't come with an AC adapter for some reason. Battery life increased to 6-10 hours though.

The demo for KH 3D: DDD is now out! Definitely going to check that out soon along with the demo for Rayman Origins 3D, which has been out for a while already.

There seems to be a lot of confusion regarding the 3DS XL AC charger. It comes with an AC adapter in all regions except Japan. They probably figure that since the 3DS, DSi, and DSi XL have sold so well in Japan, it will be easy to find a compatible AC adapter.

Honestly dunno what to think of it. On one hand, I kind of like the new design more than the old one, but there are plenty of things I like about the original 3DS design more.

Also, the increase in size makes the 3DS's already low PPI even lower- it goes from 132.15 PPI to 95.59 PPI. The good thing about the increase in size is that the viewing angle is significantly larger.

There isn't really any upgrades other than a bigger screen (which could be seen as a downgrade) and a slightly better battery life. It would've been cool if they had integrated a second circle pad into it, and the additional shoulder buttons. Upgraded cameras would've been nice as well.

Might end up getting it- probably not though, as my current 3DS is hardly played (that should change when Kingdom Hearts 3D comes out). Still need to finish Kid Icarus. Really wish they had improved upon the hardware in a bigger way. System firmware definitely needs to be improved, but they can just do that through updates (and they've already said they would, just haven't specified how).

Since I don't have my own 3DS yet, the XL is appealing. I imagine it should be a lot more comfortable too, at least for adults. Only problem is I've spent too much and I'm on a budget. LOL. Hopefully the larger screen also results in a larger sweet spot for the 3D effect. That would be a significant improvement if that's the case, but I haven't really read anything about it so don't know if it does. Just saw the pictures.

The larger display does have a larger sweet spot (or viewing angle), but at the cost of pixel density. The PPI of the XL model is almost the same as the PPI of the original DSi- which isn't bad, but the Vita has more than twice the PPI of the XL model.
