So far, the local stores that offered the unit are the ever most popular retail store for games; Datablitz and iTech. Both stores price the 3DS XL at around Php 10, 500 or $250.00 (about $50 more than the SRP announced by Nintendo).
There were different reactions, but mostly positive. A lot would claim that the 3DS XL had a better appearance, improved 3D effect and much enjoyable to use. Some would also say that the bigger screen gives less headache.
Players also commended the new matte finish which is now more finger-print and scratch proof. People who bought the 3DS XL also liked the new stylus and earphone placements.
We haven't actually tried but people seem to claim that the battery life have improved ranging from 1 to 1.5 hours. The 3DS XL package also now comes with a 4GB SD Card compared to the launch version which only came with a 2GB SD Card.
Well it seems to be making a lot of people happy. Are you planning to jump in the bandwagon?
