Against:

* Most of the upcoming games work the the older 3DS models, so there's no real need to buy it unless you really like the small minor improvements.

* No charger is included with the new model.

* The lifespan of these new models will probably be short going by previous Nintendo handhelds with small improvements. (e.g. Gameboy Micro, Nintendo DSi)

For:

* Two analog sticks. 

* Slightly better performance.

"You really wanted a non-XL option"

There is a new 3DS and a new 3DS XL, not sure how that point it relevant?

Haha - no they won't. The UK version hasn't had a charger for years, welcome to the new nintendo.

Already got one and aside from the better 3D. There isn't much reason to own one.

 

If you own a 3DS/XL already. Don't bother, unless you really want to play Xenoblade Chronicles.

If you're looking into getting a 3DS. Then definitely get a New 3DS

 

C-Stick is rubbish as well. Reminds me of the old mice that you'd get with laptops. The little thing in the middle of the keyboard.

I called it the Nipple, it was awesome (when I was 10).

But did you play with it more than the touchpad? :p

They're not releasing the smaller version in the US.

Against:

 

  • Minor improvement over the current 3DS XL, not worth buying if you already own a 3DS, 3DS XL or 2DS console
  • Will not have many games that take advantage of the additional power, Nintendo cant afford flagship games to fragment the market.
  • Basically the DSi all over again

 

For:

 

  • Worth buying if you don't have a console in the 3DS family
