Got it for ~$160 after taxes due to a stealth Amazon sale for something like 40+% off, so I'm a bit biased in terms of value here. Transferred/upgraded over from my Yoshi Edition XL; intending to use that as a backup/storage unit.

**The good**

Nice glossy, metallic finish looks really nice, but will smudge easily. Shoulder buttons are smaller and clickier than the normal 3DSs. Circle Pad feels stiffer and perhaps due to a different rubber compound, doesn't feel as "sticky", but rather smooth and dry. This could also simply be cos the unit is brand new. Face buttons are about the same, but the new Start & Select positions are good and don't feel as awkward to press and look at as before.

I lucked out and I'm pretty sure my model has an IPS display (you can run a series of tests on color gamut and contrast online to be sure, or simply look at the unit from extreme display angles and if it looks washed out, it's probably a TN display). Super Stable 3D isn't totally perfect, but it is a vast improvement over the original 3DS' promise of stereoscopic depth; this is what it should've been from the beginning. Auto brightness is also really cool so you won't have to constantly tab out of games to manually set it.

Speakers sound louder than my XL's model. The headphone jack is also positioned more logically - dead center, instead of off to the left. Greatly appreciated too is the repositioning of the volume slider up to the top display; now you will no longer accidentally run your finger along the thing and RIP your ears. It's also way stiffer and locks in place to mute, just like the 3D slider.

To make room for the ZL + ZR triggers and other internal sorcery, the game cart was pushed to the bottom.

Got a brand new unit for $203 (including shipping and taxes). The system is wonderful but not good for people with smaller hands like myself. Still, the improved head tracking AND the built in amiibo support are more than worth the money.

One of my pet peeves is how the microSD slot now requires you to find a micro screwdriver to open up the back cover to access it.

The "Nintendo Gold Hyrule Edition New Nintendo 3DS XL " is the first handheld I've bought from Nintendo and after a few months I have to say that its awesome. Buyers beware though, "New Nintendo 3ds XL" does not mean it's brand spanking new but that it's this versions NAME and I had almost bought the outdated 3ds that didn't have the c-stick.

Version vraiment améliorée par rapport au modèle régulier, le coût supplémentaire en vaut la peine. Juste un petit détail : il faut vraiment être de face pour apprécier l'effet 3D, sinon l'image est floue.

Absolutely love it.
Just really wish it came with the Nintendo Nintendo 3DS AC Adapter as a freebee, since not everyone already had the appropriate charger. A bit of a nuisance having to buy something additional to keep this charged.

Still, no regrets here. Good purchase.

I was a little bit skeptical about upgrading to a New 3DS, considering my old navy blue model still works fine. I had never previously had an XL version of a Nintendo handheld device either, as I often viewed the quality as being slightly lower than the original (smaller) counterparts. I ultimately chose to buy this for the improved processing power, allowing better play of Super Smash Brothers.

Pros:
- The enhanced 3D functionality through face tracking is outstanding! I never liked the 3D on my old 3DS, and often got headaches from trying to use it. These problems are completely erased for a far better experience with the New 3DS XL! I've found myself playing old games over again just to appreciate the 3D graphics that I couldn't enjoy before. This stable new 3D is what the original 3DS *should* have provided.
- The New 3DS XL is of higher quality than previous DSi XL or 3DS XL consoles. The volume and 3D sliders are well made, and stay firmly where you drag them to. The speakers and overall build quality on my model is excellent!
- The controls are easy to use and feel very comfortable in my hands. I haven't had much use for the added nub or ZL/ZR buttons yet, but they certainly don't get in the way.
- The improved speed relative to the old 3DS models is notable, and downloads are much faster on this device.
- The hinges for the screen click comfortably into one of two positions, and the upper screen experiences very minimal shaking when the 3DS is moved around while open.
- The screens, body size, shape, and weight of the New 3DS are fantastic! Now that I have used this console, my old 3DS feels tiny and clunky in my hands by comparison. The New 3DS XL fits very comfortably in my hands, even through long periods of use.

Looks incredible! The gold is light in colour, and very very noticeable from afar lol but as a whole, the NEW 3DS system left me speechless. It's tons of fun in every aspect. Plus it came a day earlier, so even better!

With the new C-Stick and VERY much improved 3D It was a instant buy for me. If you are not familiar with the new 3D effect, basically there is a new IR tracker in the front beside the camera. This tracker is meant to follow your heads movement and is very responsive. While on a bus for example, when you hit a bump, on the old 3DS you would get your vision messed up a bit, with the new technology, the IR tracker will see that movement and adjust the 3D on the spot. And with very little lag. The New C-Stick is also a very nice touch (see what I did there). If you're familiar with the Xbox One Or PS4, they have two thumb sticks. Which previous DS's did not have. You could however, purchase a third party product. This new addition makes it much easier to maneuver the camera in games. The feel of it is almost just like what old laptops used to have before tracking pads and is very responsive and still somewhat comfortable. There is also newer and faster hardware. An updated CPU helps with loading games and browsing the web etc. Super Smash Brothers literally loads in half the time, maybe even quicker. Overall it's a great upgrade and if you haven't bought or used a 3DS before, now is a better time than ever to make the leap :)
