Good news, but it's possible that I'll be disappointed at the same time. Despite that another Xenoblade is coming out only for the new 3DS, makes me wonder that Nintendo is planing to announce other games just for the new 3DS, because of it's enhanced engine. Making me want to trade in my current 3DS into the new 3DS just to get my hands on titles only for the new 3DS. I'm excited, but I don't know if I should be. Or better yet, wait it out intel the price is lowered.

The faster speed seems cool, I guess. I do really like the whole faceplate idea, and those colored buttons tho.

I just upgraded to the XL last year. I don't want the New 3ds enough to get it.

They won`t release many games exclusive on the NEW 3DS, simply because they would isolate a huge percent of current 3DS owners. There weren`t may must own titles exclusively for the DSiWare so rest assure, you`re future titles won`t all go exclusive to the NEW 3DS hardware.

On the side note on release window for North America, my guess is Fall 2015-Winter 2016

I love the bigger screens on the XL, and after going from a launch 3DS to the XL, it's hard to go back to it, for me.

Better 3d, finally a second joystick, 2 extra shoulder buttons, and more power. I don't see a reason to not get this, even if you recently purchased an original. My only problem with it is that the SD card has been shrunk to a Micro SD, so you'll have to use a pc to move all your game files to a new card.

I asked myself how lazy they've been to choose a name like "New 3DS". People will only get confused as why it is called like that and what's new to it. There could be some potential for the new power that this one provides but it's not a big deal (at least for me). Even though I'm really sceptical about this, I'm sure that I will be again one of those buying it anyway, especially special versions (like the Majora's Mask one, but I'm sure it will be sold out in Europe before I save enough money)

Crazy how fast those limited edition Majora’s Mask N3ds got sold out.

Since both limited edition n3ds xl got sold out guess I’ll have to make do with decal skins.

Since MH4U is finally coming, it's about time to buy a 3ds, so this ends up perfectly for me.

I think they must have chosen the name "new 3DS" because they are aiming to have their new portable system out in a year or so. Otherwise the name "3DSi" would probably have made more sense.

Knowing Nintendo, their new system will have a name designed to sow the maximum amount of confusion- maybe something like nu3DS, which you will have to distinguish from the less new, new 3DS, or maybe 3DS3.
