Recently i was looking at getting an Nintendo 3DS XL for Christmas and was really surprised to find out you don't get a charger with it!
I can't understand why something so essential would not be included?, i mean its not like the console is solar powered or anything...
From what i've read on-line Nintendo expect you to have a charger from a previous DS console? Well yes I have a DS Lite charger, which according to the internet is incompatible with the 3DS XL anyway... Luckily i knew this from reading reviews before buying the 3DS XL, i just wonder how many people are going to get a 3DS XL this Christmas and not be able to use it?
On Amazon the very last paragraph after a massive description states "An AC adapter is not included with the Nintendo 3DS, but can be purchased separately.", hardly very prominent for something i would consider vital information.
Nintendo have had some great innovations over the years, however i've always thought Nintendo have made some really silly decisions too... this been the latest i'll probably never understand the point of.
