    Considering returning my Overclocked from Amazon once it arrives. Will wait on Ghostlight first, but if I'm not happy with their response...

    Picked up a 3DS XL yesterday and couldn't be happier with it.

    Much better to hold and better build quality. The screen on 3DS was always quite loose, this feels much more solid. The transfer was nice and painless too. Happy with this, just need to sell my 3DS now.

    Just ordered an XL from Amazon.it for 130 :)

    Now do I stop playing Luigi until it arrives? Or maybe start afresh?

    So a patch might actually be on the way?

    Buy a broken game now and hope they fix it, or wait and pay 50 for a second-hand copy.

    Tough choice.

    Crikey, didn't realise the bugs in the game were that bad. For that sort of thing they should be offering refunds.

    You can skip the freezing by leaving it a few minutes. It doesn't crash, just freezes temporarily.

    Isn't Devil Survivor Overclocked the same game as Devil Survivor on DS, but with 3D cutscenes? If the 3DS version is broken, then you can play the DS version on the same system, surely?

    It's got an additional 8th chapter (hence 'overclocked', the game takes place over a week), so it's not just new cut scenes.

    While the original DS game is region free and works fine, it's still quite expensive even though it was reprinted- it goes for 30-50 in places.

    Having said that, the EU version of Overclocked is out of print already, and is only going to go up in price even though its fundamentally broken. I can't see Ghostlight doing a second printing, so I'm going to hang on to my copy and hope for a patch.

    Anyone who just wants to play it is better off going for the DS version at this point rather than waiting for restock or patches at this point though, it's just not a cheap game compared to the reasonable price Amazon were selling Overclocked for.

    How often do you have to use the 'summon' command though? If its every other round in an SRPG, that would drive me up the wall!

    Right then. I'm tempted to get one of these over a Wii U. I had a go on the XL with a Mario game and for some reason it looked 'blurry'? I know it stretches the resolution to a screen that is double(?) the size but what effect does it really have?

    I think I'd much rather go for a smaller and clearer screen. Hmm...

    The Resident Evil films. I'm one of the reasons they keep making them.

    There's no stretching of the resolution, it's still native - it's just that the pixels are bigger due to the bigger screen. Yes, the image quality is slightly inferior to the original 3DS, but it's not that big a deal, and the trade-off for the much bigger screen is worth it imo.

    Yeah the bigger screen and more comfortable feel wins out for me too.

    I've played Mario 3d, Luigi's Mansion and Monster Hunter so far and they've all looked great to me.

    I'm really impressed with the console, some fantastic games.

    I'm 14 hours in and used it 2-3 times? I guess as it gets harder though, i'll be using it more often.

    Oh, and XL is a million times better than the original. There's no way I'd go back to my dinky original unless I somehow had an accident with my XL.

    On the train in Spain at the weekend I was enjoying Paper Mario, I happened to pass a guy with an XL and envy has kicked in, especially due to how uncomfortable the old one is.
    So, can all the ambassador games be transferred over?
    What's the nicest colour?
    Red/Black and White are attracting me.

    Everything transfers over, it just takes a little while. The XL is much more comfortable, but it isn't quite the high quality upgrade in all respects that the DSi XL was. White's good but I suspect it gets grubby a bit quickly. I only got it because it was Japan-exclusive at the time. My UK XL is red and black, which is pleasant enough. It's a nice finish on the back and not too cheap looking on the inside.

    I'm honestly surprised at how many people prefer the XL. The original model is the perfect size IMO.

    The standard 3DS really hurt my hands, even worse than the original PSP did (odd, as the DS Lite was fine). I've played loads of Soul Hackers and Dragon Quest on my XL, no bother at all. I don't have particularly large hands, so it isn't that. The larger screen is much, much better for reading Japanese characters, too, even though the pixel density is now pretty low.

    It's so uncomfortable due to the sharp corners.

    So I got to have a go on a XL today and that has made my mind up and I will be upgrading to it as soon as possible. Luigis Mansion is great but after 30min my hand cramps so I leave it, couldn't enjoy it on my train journey yesterday which takes away the point of owning the handheld.

    I would really like to upgrade to a XL, i use my 3ds, but not enough to warrant the upgrade. seeing talk in here and in the LM2 thread makes me tempted though.

    Got to admit, I started playing the 3DS a lot more regularly since I upgraded to the XL in September.

    All games can be transferred over, yes. I went for the silver/black combo - it's the one that looks least like a Fisher price toy, plus it matches my Macbook. :)

    I'm cool with toys!
    Can't decide between red/black or ice white.

    Don't think I can justify an upgrade to an XL but would like something to make existing 3DS more comfortable. Anyone using and recommend one of the grip attachments, preferably one that allows acces to stylus?
