I still think it's ridiculous that it doesn't ship with a charger.

I think it is only Japan that is going without the charger.

Europe doesn't get one either. Which, is rather pointless, especially if they only cost a couple of pounds to manufacture. Still want to get a 3DSXL, though only if they release it in the same bronze & gold colour scheme they had on the DSiXL. Loved that.

I'd rather get a PS Vita. It seems that Nintendo are giving up. They announce Pokemon, then they say it's not for the 3DS. Slowly killing off their best game series...

You realise it took 3 years for Diamond & Pearl to actually come out after the DS launched? :p At least with the 3DS there's a number of Pokémon related apps on the system already, Plus, Gamefreak have two main teams making these games - one team doing B&W2, and the other team working on next years release... which will probably be a 3DS game (they actually have all the 3D models for the Pokémon now thanks to the Pokédex apps, which would form the bulk of the work)

Not really, since this means a greater number of people still have access to the games, such as myself. I don't want to have to pay £140 to be able to play the latest game, not yet anyway.

Plus there are numerous features exclusive to the 3DS, leaving a few exclusive to that hardware.

Vita is going to suffer the same fate as the PSP, I wouldn't buy another Vita even if my life depended on it.

You're a fool if you think that B&W2 still being on the ds is suddenly going to kill the pokemon series.

If anything, i'd say sony has been more guilty of "not trying" with their latest handheld.

Doesn't mean it won't work on the 3DS, however.

personally I'd rather have it for the DS right now as 3DS games don't work with the action replay yet

Isn't every Pokémon game nearly identical? Thats what I thought when I used to play a few emulator games from the gameboy colour...

I picked up an XL today. Traded in the my old 3DS for it and i got Kingdom Hearts 3D with it.
While the console is quite a bit heavier and larger, it does fit nice in my hands and doesn't feel uncomfortable at all. I don't know how it will fair for younger kids or smaller handed people, especially when it comes to using the touch screen.

Have you had an opportunity to use the 3D yet? Apprently the effect is better and has a bit better viewing angle. Is that the case?

Here in Aus we have to wait until the 23rd of August. I'll be trading my 3DS in and getting this one.
