    New 3ds early adopters thread

    Picked mine up today in "new black" color and am currently enjoying Majora's mask for the first time.

    The 3d is actually usable now and maybe it's my head but the top display seems a bit sharper too.

    Sound is greatly improved, being a bit louder in volume and better separation of stereo.

    Who else got one? What do you plan to do with your old one?

    Nice KP! I figured you might have haha. I was thinking of posting my old one for sale today also. My OLD 3dsxl is in Red and black with some sonic stickers on it in case anybody is interested might gift it to a cousin; haven't decided on that yet.

    Also another big improvement on the N3dsxl is the hinge no longer flops the top screen around.

    Is it a pain in the dick to transfer your Data? I was thinking of getting one because I use my 3DS all the time.



    Pre-Order now to avoid disappointment.

    3D is great, I can play action games now! I bought Fantasy Zone for the occasion and had a blast!

    I have a ton of crap on mine so it took me about an hour and a half to do it. I did it wirelessly though. There is an option to copy to pc and then transfer to the card.

    Not if you have a pc and an sd/micro sd card reader it was a little time consuming but nothing painful.

    3d is confirmed cool now. Playing Shinobi 3 on the new 3ds with the slider turned up is awesome.

    How are you guys finding using it with the card slot and the power button being on the bottom edge? I've always used the bottom edge in my grip, so I imagine that I'd get a system and be shutting down/shooting the cart out every time I stop thinking about it.

    The 3D was usable before, as well.

    I missed getting one and it's sold out everywhere where I live. I'll just have to wait until restocks happen.

    The power button is flush with the system and actually hard to actuate inadvertently. You almost have to use a No. 2 pencil's eraser head to depress it far enough for it to go to the shut off prompt, so I don't think you would have a problem.

    I called gamestop and they all gave me this song and dance that the only location with any left was in Florida and that I could order them online, blah, blah, blah. I called Toys R Us and they had tons left in stock.

    I picked up the Monster Hunter 4 bundle, but I haven't opened it yet. I'm thinking of returning it and waiting for the possibility of a Xenoblade Chronicles bundle instead.

    I'm still waiting for majoras mask to come in the mail. But I'm just sticking to the trusty 2ds. Old 3ds gave me bad headaches. I'll probably only buy a new 3ds when a game that needs it is required.

    I'm waiting on if they make a special edition of Xenoblade when that drops in April. I am kinda pissed they came out with an all new version of it. I got my XL when Pokemon X and Y came out so I went in whole hog and got the special edition blue one, even though it didn't come with a copy of the game. Now not even three years later here's a brand new one that fixes the flaws with what the old one had. I'm also pissed that I actually bought the Circle Pad Pro and now it's pretty much worthless since it won't work with the newer games that support the new C-Stick.

    K-2 actually pointed me in the right direction. I called TRU and sure enough they had like 15 of them left. Scored a red one and was on my way. No copies of Zelda in stock but I ordered the LE one with the skull kid which should be here this week.

    Happy to hear it!

    The last console I bought at Toys R Us was the Sega Nomad; the video game section looks quite a bit different than it did back then.

    So it uses Micro SD instead of SD? What's the max memory you can use with it?

    I saw one of these and am convinced to buy one, most likely when there are some nice looking special bundles. The 3D tracking will make me want to play some more atmospheric games like MGS3, RE: Revelations, and Starfox 64 again with the 3D on.

    I purchased a Japanese one a few months after they hit for the latest Monster Hunter, and just picked up a North American version. Now I'm officially all set. I love the improved 3D and the great speakers

    Yeah the fact I can actually hear the sound nice and loud now is a major plus.
