Its part of Nintendos super confusing naming scheme. The New 2. DS, and the New 3. DS launched back in 2. DS system. Its not just a new chassisthese systems can play games the original 2. DS and 3. DS cannot, like Xenosaga Chronicles 3. D, or a wide range of SNES games including Donkey Kong Country, Street Fighter Alpha 2, and F Zero. There arent that many exclusive games, but there are enough good ones that if you already own an older 3. DS system youre probably wishing you had the new one. The New 2. DS, like the New 3. DS, also has a faster processor, a micro. SD slot for on console storage, NFC capabilities for all your Amiibos, two new buttons on the shoulders of the device, and a C Stick analog joystick. This is, in every way, an upgrade over any non New 2. DS, 3. DS or 3. DS XL you might own. The New Nintendo 2. DS XL isnt just an update to the ugly old 2. DS that looked more like a bargain bin knock off than a system from the company that created mobile gaming. With the new device, Nintendo ditches the 2. DSs ugly slab design to mimic the folding design of every other 3. DS. At 1. 50, its 7. DS and a full 6. New Nintendo 3. DS XL the 3. DS XL doesnt include a charger, so I added that price to the total. This is now the mid range mobile console, and unless you really, really like 3. D, it should be the one you buy. Besides being cheaper than the New 3. DS XL, its also much lighter. It weighs 9. 2 ouncesthe same as the original 2. DS. The 3. DS XL weights 1. You might not consider that a major difference, but I definitely notice it when I toss the 3. DS into my purse, and I often forget I have the 2. DS in there. Its also smaller, folded up, than both of the other consoles currently available in the 3. DS lineup. The slab like 2. DS is 5 inches by 5. The New 2. DS XL folds up to 3. Which is not just significantly more pocketable than its predecessors, its also slightly smaller than the 3. DS XL, which folds up to 3. Unlike the original 2. DS, this system isnt punishing people for hating 3. D or wanting to save money. Its the best 3. DS system available, only with a little size and one feature shaved off. It even improves on the New 3. DS XL That system has two big issues with it The game cartridge is always visible, and always ugly, and you need a screwdriver and a little patience in order to replace the micro. SD card. The New 2. DS XL solves both problems by hiding both slots behind a little door on the bottom of the device. But the 2. DS XL is not without a few minor problems. The speakers have been moved from the top half of the device to tiny slots on the bottom that your palms often cover. So when your palms cover the speakers the sound gets muffled, and when theyre uncovered the speakers sound far tinnier. The sliders and hinge feel cheaper too, with the hinge having a little give to it as illustrated to the left. The New 3. DS XL feels positively luxurious beside it. Its the Lexus to this guys really solid Toyota Camry. As someone who has frequently driven a Camry, I am totally okay with that The Nintendo 2. DS XL is more than enough machine for me. With the huge choice of fantastic DS, 3. DS, and New 3. DS games on the system, and a brand new Metroid game just a month away, I dont think this gadgets gonna be leaving my bag any time soon. If you already own a New 3. DS XL, but never use the 3. D than this might be worth a look, and if youre upgrading from the original 3. DS or just dipping your toes into legit mobile gaming, then this is the console to buy when it goes on sale July 2. READMEThe first 2. DS that doesnt force cheapskates and 3. Dragon Ball Z Battle Of Z Pc Crack Game. D haters to compromise. It has a similar footprint to the 3. DS XL, but is much lighter. Feels a little more cheaply made than the 3. DS XL, but still feels very durable. Plays a lot of really good games.
