Good: Bigger Screens, Analog Circle Pad Control, Great Games, 3 cameras, Louder Speakers, Built In Microphone
Bad: That has no charger!
Comment: Gotta have titles like GTA V!
Good: The nintendo 3dsxl
Comment: Its good because the 3dsxl is a good game
Good: Bigger screen, low resolution isn't too noticeable, is still compact enough to be taken, not too heavy
Bad: £30 games
Comment: I have a limited edition Pikachu Yellow 3DS XL I got from Amazon for £170 and I got it because I'm a massive pokemon fan and it was the same price as the others. It's a really nice console, the inside is White and the gameplay is good. It's not that heavy, I think CNet were exaggerating a bit, because I'm 13 and even I thought the console was still quite light. I have a DSi at home, so the no AC Adaptor thing was no big deal for me, for I already have a DS Lite too and having all these chargers around me would make me go berserk. The only problem I felt was not about the console (which I'd recommend 100%) but the GAMES, which cost far too much. I would recommend that if you already splashed out £170 for the console and want to stay on a budget for games, then look into the preowned games, the only games I buy are preowned because they never are in bad condition and the only new game I got was Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time. I'd also recommend Professor Layton games!
Good: have tons of games from nintendo
Bad: no charger.
Comment: buy from tesco, reg a new acc in the website

Good: Good size screen and anitglare and also not an iPod which is a music player someone tell the guy that reviewed this
Bad: No charger
Comment: I thought the review was good up to the point about apple, also controls on the ipod touch are junky for alot of games.
Please don't compare a hand-held gaming system with a music player. Thanks!
Comment: I was about to make a joke about how CNET reviewers rate everything badly unless it's made by Apple. That was before I saw the comparison with the iPod Touch.
There's not a single Nintendo game on Apple's store, not to mention the lack of tactile controls.
What a rofl. CNET is a massive-Apple-hugging satchel of bias. Riddance to you and your so-called "review."
Good: good size screen and anitglare and its not apple
Bad: no charger
Comment: what a useless review another so called reviewer kissing apples backside, why compare it too a ipod there two different things- what a moron.
Good: BETTER THAN APPLE!
Comment: All credibility gone as soon as you mention the ipod.
Your an idiot.
Comment: After a cheap 3DS XL?
If you are new to Zavvi make an account with referrer code ZV15625875 to get 5% off making it £159.55
If you buy it after the day of release as well you can use code CONSOLE at checkout to receive another £5.95 making it less than £155
Good: I like the style and the matte finish
Bad: no higher res, weight and no AC!
Comment: I originally wanted to buy this console, but after seeing so many articles about the lower quality picture, the weight and the fact that it's so not worth the money I think I'll have to forget about this,
