For gamers out there that still have a passion for handheld console gaming devices, Nintendo has a treat for you: the new Nintendo 3DS XL. The latest launch was featured in a Nintendo Direct, featuring a 4.88-inch top screen and a 4.18-inch bottom screen. The new hardware adds over an inch to the current 3DS’ display and will also come with a 4GB SD card.
Priced at $199.99, this new 3DS is more suitable for video content like Netflix and the 3D Nintendo Video service. Nintendo has been slipping in hand held console sales the last few years but will this new, larger unit be enough to energize the line’s initially slow-growing sales? What are your thoughts?
