    Here are the specifications;

    90% larger screens (124mm x 106mm) (4.88 inches x 4.18 inches)
    When closed the device measures 134x74x21mm
    Initial colour availability is either a silver/black, red/black or blue/black casing
    Longer battery life; 3D games 6 hours and 2D games up to 10 hours
    4GB SD card bundled for e-shop downloads
    Weighs 336g ( the original 3DS handheld is 235g)
    No AC adaptor included
    Curious how they expect you to charge it then as that would make it unusable out of the box

    Put a USB cable in the box, and expect folks to use an existing USB charger or plug it into a PC/laptop?

    Can't help that this is starting to look a little desperate. I had a DSi XL myself - great machine, but I later sold it when I realised that I was doing more gaming on smartphone and tablet - especially the latter.

    Not that keen on the 3D gimmick either...

    Career status: still enjoying my new career in DevOps, but it's keeping me busy...

    I'll probably get it, but hopefully for less than £150

    We've had every generation of the Nintendo DS in our house. Mariokart 7 is just too fun while having a poo. I cant wait for the man-size version!
