Does anybody know if Nintendo is going to release a new 3DS soon?

and let's not forget the horrid short comings of the budget 3DS XL - cheap build, dire sound quality, and brightness.


You mean the latest (cheaper) model that we can buy right now?


Absolutely. Now, this thing basically cost Nintendo twenty cents to make, given its extremely low budget build. You're better off holding out for the inevitable revision.

While there ARE significant pluses to the 3DS XL, the significant negatives are simply too overwhelming to justify a purchase of it, let alone justify it as an "upgrade".

Yeah, I think I'll wait, I should add that I do have a classic 3DS right now, so it's not like I'm missing out at the moment.

Pretty sure they will release a new one (same shell, look) but with better components, they did it with the Advance SP.

Well that changes everything ITT. If you already have a 3DS then just wait!

A sale at a store doesn't mean anything, Nintendo didn't tell them to have the sale, it was the said store decision. Nothing suspicious about that.

The 3DS XL is 40$ off at futureshop, (that's 160$!).

I'm really tempted to buy one but I can't help but think they are getting ready to receive a new model, some people are telling me it's going to be a dual Analog version.

The 3DS is selling very well, 40$ off just like that seems suspicious.


This post is incredibly stupid.

Its a freaking sale at a single store and the XL just released about six or so months ago and is selling well.

Its foolish to think a new model is launching anytime soon. Maybe in a year or so but not now.

I can't see them adding a duel analog stick if Nintendo comes out with a third version of the 3DS.

Everyone complained about the PSP for having one analog stick and wished the next redesign would have two analog sticks.
Never happened.

Besides you can go out and buy the Circle Pad Pro if you really need another analog stick. At least nintendo gave you an option while Sony didn't.

I know a dual analog version is not likely, but I wouldn't be surprised if they release the same XL but with better screens/speakers. Judging from what I'm reading on this board, they're inferior to the classic 3DS.

Really it's not that crazy to suspect that they'd at least revise that.
