The downsides of the Nintendo 3DS XL
The gadget has a few small issues. The Micro SD slot sits inside the back panel. You need a screw driver to open it. But he screws do not come off completely. So the process of opening the panel makes a horrible creaking noise as if the panel is breaking. But the panel stays sturdy after it too. Also a 4GB micro SD comes with the gadget. If you need more space, you can transfer your old files via Wi-Fi to the new card. This process takes place slower than a snail.
Nintendo 3DS XL can be bought for the price of $199.99. It comes in a wide array of colors with hundreds of stickers and covers to customize.
