    Point still stands though, I am not willing to buy any digital games if I got a 3DS XL as I may finish the games I want to play, then sell it and buy another one in a year or two when some more games I want to play come out.

    With every other console I can do this, I can do it on my Android phone, my Ipad, my Vita, My 360, my PS3, my Kindle, my Steam account. When my wife sold her iPad, then a couple years later bought an iPad4 she could get all her old games back.

    Nintendo are genuinely the only company I know who don't have this functionality. It is bewildering.
    You've got to admit some of the issue is in part to do with your odd way of dealing with systems... buying and selling systems whenever there's a game you want to play is not a particularly financially logical strategy. If you just bought a 3DS and kept it there'd be no problem.

    Also redownloading on Apple devices was restricted until two years ago. Sony has tightened up. Nintendo's getting there... they're slower than other companies, but they do get there eventually.

    Nintendo's absolutely not getting there. They're a disgrace! :)

    Yeah Nintendo are like 2 generations behind with this shit. My fucking phone lets me re-download games onto a new phone. My phone provides a better gaming service than Nintendo.

    I enjoyed it too, but I found it way too easy. Wouldn't mind a larger and more challenging sequel though!

    Played a bit of Gunman Clive the other day, seems decent but I'm currently too hooked on Layton to want to play anything else.

    Although I'm rather tempted to pick up NSMB2, after trying a bit of NSMBU (they really need to work on the titles), which looked surprisingly good. But alas, not enough for me to get a Wii U at this stage, so have to look elsewhere for a 2D Mario fix.

    I know NSMB2 apparently isn't as inventive or good, but is it sufficiently different from the original DS version to warrant playing? Cos it kinda looks the same to me in screenshots, all the gold coins aside. Doesn't help that it's still bloody 30 everywhere.

    If you can borrow it or rent it, it's worth a small amount of your time provided the thought of playing much the same game again after the DS & Wii iterations doesn't put you off. There's better things to spend 30 on.

    Not sure how good it is but it's 14.99 in HMV at the moment. Picked one up over the weekend but not had a chance to try it yet.

    If you like the previous Layton games then it's more of the same. But with better animations. There's plenty of new puzzle types. Definitely worth 15 quid

    It registers automatically if your account is linked, at least Fire Emblem did for me.

    Cool. Tempted to buy fire emblem from the eshop despite ranting on the last page about Nintendo's shitty purchasing policy.

    I have to say Layton has great replay value. I'm still tackling the daily puzzles more than 6 months after release.

    @richardiox Don't forget Game do discounted (versus eShop pricing anyway) codes for the eShop.

    33 rather than 40 for most of the big ones.

    @Kay That will depend on how much you think you're into the coin collecting design and how much you like 2D Mario. Its quite a different title from the original game, but I don't know if you'll find it different enough if you've played the Wii and DS game. The level design feels distinctly different, since its made by a new team trained by the old Mario team. Its got a certain tricky old school quality to it.

    I found it disappointing that there weren't very many new enemies, and that the stage gimmicks have been toned down a bit, but other than that, I really had a blast. That whole idea of the New series about being easy to get through a stage, but hard to master is at, I think, its fullest form here.

    The best example of this (no spoilers) is a secret stage you can access where a floating platform drifts through most of the stage, and is relatively easy to win, but extremely difficult to manipulate the gold rings and flying turtles to grab all the coins you can in it. I died over 50 times attempting to get a score though I got past the stage on my third try.

    The downloadable stage packs are absolutely frigging amazing, so keep that in mind if you want the game. The main game is certainly not lacking in content, but for about half the price of the main game, you get another 30-40 levels that are beyond awesome and would have elevated the game to God Status had they been included as secrets.

    I understand some people's frustrations here, but don't think the comparisons to phones are particularly instructive.

    A 3DS isn't a phone. You don't have one on a contract, so (ideally) you're not going to be changing them around all the time. Of course it sucks to have one lost or broken, and Nintendo might want to introduce some sort of insurance for those people who have lost everything.

    But if you sold your DS and its games (as the poster on the previous page seemed to do), then it does seem a bit weird for someone to be then asking for those games back when he buys a new console. Particularly if the person he sold it to has access to all those games as well.

    @Gregolution It's my first Layton, and after a slow start I'm really enjoying it. At first I was only really playing it for the puzzles (which are varied - some are genius, most are easy, with the odd one or two that were poor or just didn't make sense to me), but I quickly got into the story too, and the presentation is fantastic. Perfect Sunday afternoon-type game - very laidback and not the sort of thing you'd enjoy if you try to rush through it.

    Definitely worth it for 15, as there's loads of content outside of the main game in there too, including a mini-game that has you training a cute fluffy rabbit to perform in plays. Yep, it's as adorable as it sounds.

    If Nintendo only released one version of the 3DS there'd be no problem :) Remember the old DS, how many versions it had? Once the sexier "Lite" was out, who would still want to keep their old, grey brick?
    Now the 3DS XL is out, and who wouldn't want a larger screen?

    Good call mate. 32 fire emblem digital download is 7 quid cheaper than a physical copy from a shop.

    Isn't there a System Transfer thing that you can use? I'm not certain myself, as this is my first 3DS.

    Yes, you can transfer all your data from one 3DS to another 3DS (XL). There's also a free app in the eShop which lets you transfer save data from a physical copy to a digital copy if you decide to sell your boxed game and buy the digital version instead.

    Can anyone tell me how to find my 3ds friend code?

    Anyone else had problems with the headphone jack on the XL? Tried 3 different sets of headphones and they all fit very loose in the jack and if I make any slight movements the sound will start playing out the speakers. Far from ideal and according to Google seems to be a common problem.

    Only got it yesterday and loathe to take it back already.
  • Deleted user 1 May 2013 20:05:51
    So who ordered an XL from amazon.it and how long did it take to arrive?
