    Those corners look much more hand friendly

    I found games easier on the DSi XL.

    i'm expecting some good trade in deals with this as well. Game are always pusing for 3ds consoles and the mario games, they make a fortune, so i expect in the first couple of weeks some pretty much trade vs trade and maybe a 20 quid payment or close too.

    I'd probably trade up if the new XL is worth it. Depends on the screens though, don't want super pixelated versions...

    heh, charging for the AC adaptor is a serious joke. It can't be said enough imo.

    Gonna buy one, but Miyamoto is definitely taking the piss.

    If that MCV quote of 148 including VAT for the unit price from Nintendo is true, you'll probably need to wait until Nintendo drop the unit price to get that bundle for 150

    Yup, possibly the worst design idea ever.

    Anyone know how the system transfer works? Will it transfer your Street Passes and Friends List etc or just the game content?

    As for the CPP, the only thing its good for it ports of old games (MGS, Monster Hunter) or for lefties. And they're freaks of nature anyway.

    I'm struggling to see why everyone is so surprised! The 3ds had one stick and they brought out the cpp for it the 3ds xl has one stick did everyone just think they had decided to ignore the millions of monster hunter fans by not bringing out a new one???

    Tbh, Resident Evil convinced me that this isn't the system for 3D action games anyway, so I'm not particularly bothered about the second circle pad.

    Mainly platform games and strategy games like Advance Wars are what I want it for.

    Resident Evil plays brilliantly and shows developers how it should be done on the 3DS. I had more problems with MGS3 with the CPP.

    It was ok, but when you had to violently change the camera to deal with a threat, I found those circle pad things to be way too inaccurate.

    Especially when the bad guy is fast moving, like a wolf.

    Everything except SD Card contents. So after transfer, copy everything from your old SD Card to the new one and it should be as if it was the same console :)

    That also includes Ambassador stuff, should anyone be wondering.

    @Afiddes I think people thought it would just be more sensible to stick a circle pad on their newly designed behemoth of a machine with plenty of space to the right of the bottom screen is all.

    @midnight_walker which is fair enough. but i will never understand the obsession with having two control sticks. Fair enough some games play alot better with that control method but lets all sit back and remember that the PSV is only the first handheld to have this as a control option and we have had decades of brilliant games available on these machines.

    So its basically the transfer of all system data on the internal memory and DRM licence transfer for the SD content?

    If so, I'd be tempted to trade in my old 3DS for the XL.

    my big sticking point on whether i will pick one up or not is the build quality. My 3ds creaks when i put a little too much pressure on the back of the console and i worry i am going to snap it in half one day. add that to the occasional sticking R button I just want a bit of a better build. Saying that, my 3ds has held up against getting dropped from lap height onto a wooden floor and stepped on (by accident) more times then i can imagine and not died on me

    Glol at the 3DS XL Circle pad pro, typical Nintendo.

    They'll probably sell the analogue triggers for the Wii U controllers separately.

    You could fit an extra circle pad but the two extra shoulder buttons would fuck up the flat shape

    That's what it's supposed to do.

    I should make it clear that I've not actually done it myself, I just researched it as I was considering an upgrade myself. But all games and DRM, your eShop account, friend code with current friends list and anything else you can think of should be moved.

    It's probably worth noting you also need an internet connection, as it has to link up to the eShop to de-authorise your old 3DS and transfer those authorities to the new one.

    True, they could slap them on side by side or just have the Circle pad.

    Either way they should have had two Circle Pads from the beginning with the 3DS, it would have meant more types of games being developed for the system (FPS'/twin stick shooters), left handed people would have an easier time and probably more games would be sold.

    They're making the same mistake with the Wii U, cutting out functionality, in this case analogue triggers, for no discernible reason. It'll limit game play slightly and result in very few Sim racers being made/sold for the system.

    I don't mind that too much myself. I much preferred using the second analog stick for acceleration, myself. Combined with the steering of the controller, like a steering wheel, and the shoulder buttons for gear changes, I think sim racing games will work quite well.

    I wonder what Project Cars will do with it.

    Yes, sadly, they'll probably save $0.50 per controller though...

    That or they're trying to force dev's to use the motion aspect of the controller more. I can see a sterring wheel shell fo for the Wii-U in the future hopefully with a bank of pedals. It'd be like a proper formula one setup, hmm... that owuld make for a baddass sim actually.

    They could be, but forcing customers to buy accessories, that grant simple extra functionality that could have been included in the original console, seems rather harmful.

    The Wii probably would have had a lot more unique, quality games if it had motion plus from the start.

    I'd rather have the choice of analogue triggers rather than having to buy extra accessories, and many other sim-racing fans will feel the same way. It'll lose them a big chunk of game sales just for the hell of it.
