I'm pretty disappointed. I was super hyped for the New 3DS coming out here and already planning on what plates to buy. Now, I have to rethink what I'm going to do. I guess I'll buy the XL version but I was really hoping for the chance to buy the small one just like EVERYONE ELSE GOT.
I have an XL so I was actually considering getting a regular NEW 3DS at some point. If I'm going to have two systems then I'd want them to be different, plus the faceplates look nice. However, that wouldn't have been for a while when I could get one cheaper, so maybe the regular model will still come later.
I do think it's a strange decision though; has the XL really outsold the normal model that much here in the states? It doesn't come with an AC adapter either which is stupid, that'd make it tougher to sell my XL if I got a NEW one.
I'm disappointed, I wanted the smaller version because it's more pocketable, and it has nice medium-sized screens, the original 3DS screens were too dinky, but the XL looks too lo-rez, the New 3DS seemed to split the difference and be basically perfect.
So yeah, super bummed.
It's weird NA is suddenly being treated like a second class citizen, aren't we the biggest market? C'mon, 'Merica! We deserve the best of everything!
My pants are fine! Besides it wouldn't help unless the pockets were larger.
Every once in awhile I "joke" with Shirley about how I'm going to start wearing a fanny pack around. She is never very pleased with this idea but hey, Nintendo forced my hand. Bringing the fanny pack back into style it is.
Get cargo pants, or whatever those ones with larger/more pockets are called. Though, are you wearing skinny jeans or something? The XL fits in most of my pockets if I ever want to go that route, even if barely so and the contour is obvious that it's in there.
I really don't feel like the XL is that big. The PSP/Vita is still wider than it. And at least it isn't like the monstrosity that is the GamePad.
Pretty disappointed, to be honest. I wasn't even going to buy the standard unit, as I really want the XL model, but it never hurts to have options and I really feel for all the Nintendo fans out there who wanted the normal SKU.
Nintendo really astounds me, sometimes. Today is certainly one of those days.
