Review of the Nintendo 3DS XL
On the 28th July, Nintendo launched their next handheld games console, the Nintendo 3DS XL and we got one to play with.
Top Screen: 4.88 inches
Bottom Screen: 4.18 inches
Length 15mm x width 93mm x height 22mm (closed)
4GD SD card
What’s in the Box?
The box contains the 3DS XL, a quickstart guide, operations manual, support documents, a pack of AR cards, a warning note for parents and a pin code for Club Nintendo.
What’s NOT in the box?
That would be an AC adaptor! Yes, that’s right, in order to keep the cost of the console down Nintendo are not including an AC adaptor with it. Personally I think that is a strange move as all that will happen is there will be some disappointed people if they don’t realise one isn’t included.
To be fair, the box does show “AC Adaptor is NOT included” on the box, but still, why not include the £6.99 adaptor with it? I think Nintendo assume that you already own a previous console and will use that adaptor, although they say it’s to keep it at a reasonable price.
A Closer Look
The 3DS XL may have 90% bigger screens than it’s predecessor, but it’s still able to be held in your hand.
