    I'll let you know how it works out.

    The whole process is not too complicated but still a bit of a pain. It'll take you 45 minutes to an hour depending on how much stuff you're moving. Be prepared to manually move the content from one card to the other via computer if you want to use a larger SD card in your new 3DS.

    I can confirm both download lists are being merged. I'm re-downloading Fire Emblem right now.

    Is the white 3DS XL white inside as well as out? Also, what's the deal with these pre-installed games - if I've no interest in the installed game, could I pass on the license for it to someone else (to trade/sell it)?

    Yeah, the white XL is white all over. Not my cup of tea tbh.

    Pretty sure the game comes installed, as it's tied to the console, so you can't sell it on.

    I an now an XL owner. Only downside: Argos didn't have Luigi! Or the 10 offer.

    @Kay Cheers, I'm tempted by the plain black model, but have less than zero interest in Monster Hunter.

    I have the red one, which I think looks cool. The black one looks alright too, and I might have gone for it had I not bought my XL so soon, but I actually think the coloured options are the more interesting ones.

    The blue one's really rather nice in person, too. I don't really think you can go wrong with the current (limited) selection.

    I went with the red for my uk one too. Nintendo seem to have a knack for picking colours which look better in real life - see also the brown DSi XL.

    I'd resigned myself to it looking rather drab given some comments I'd read about the XL colours, but when it arrived it actually seems to have a glow coming out of it.

    Caved in. Red 3DS XL and a copy of Fire Emblem ordered, despite a rather large Vita backlog :)

    Could anyone please confirm if Crimson Shroud is still on sale?

    I have a white XL (Mario Kart bundle). I typically like the white Nintendo handhelds but I would have preferred the black in this case. I haven't seen the coloured ones.

    Regardless, it doesn't really matter. Once the screen boots up and Luigi starts hoovering up ghosts there's little else that I notice. It's a stupidly good game, and the 3D larger screen on the XL is really nice. The XL feels less like a toy than the 3DS does (I have big hands).

    No problems with the white XL (3D land edition) here. I like it. I had the Ice white skinny 3DS originally too so was used to it :-)

    Looking back at my colleague's original 3DS I was struck by just how small and awkward it seems now. Even the amount of casing around the top screen seems wider than on the XL. No going back.

    After using the XL for a day or two going back the original 3DS does really make me wonder how I used it for the last 18 months.

    Best place to buy a 3DS XL with Fire Emblem? I see the blue one with Fire emblem for 189 on amazon...

    @Gregolution how about buying this from GAME using the voucher code:

    www.game.co.uk/webapp/wcs/stores/servlet/HubArticleView?hubId=210756&articleId=210755&catalogId=10201&langId=44&storeId=10151&cm_sp=TopNav-_-deals-_-3DSXLVoucherdeal

    Then picking up Fire Emblem for 30 odd meaning you'll get Mario Kart or 3D land into the bargain?

    Zavvi have the Monster Hunter pack for 164.98 if you're not specifically interested in the Fire Emblem system, so you could get that and FE seperately for about a fiver more than the FE pack (189 seems to be the cheapest for that).

    That's not bad Murbal but not sure I want a white one. Wish there were no colours so it didn't influence my decision!

    So tempted by the white 3DS xl with mario + FE for 195. If it wasn't white I'd have bought it by now....

    The blue / black with FE looks good aesthetically but it's a bad deal.

    Greg - go for the white.

    As I say, I would have preferred the black (a colleague has it, so I've actually seen it in the flesh) but they all do the same thing. Once you're playing it's not even an issue.

    @Gregolution If you want a physical copy and aren't fussed about super fast delivery, you can pick up Fire Emblem here for 30 quid.

    I always go with dark/black/blue devices as I don't "see" the bezel when playing games or watching video. The few white devices I've had, an old PSP, DS Lite and the old plastic Macbook, the white bezel is always in my vision.
