Another thank you to deKay for his guide. Though your name was mud for a while before I stopped being a tool and actually read what you'd wrote. Copied all the stuff from the new card folder into the old folder instead of the other way about.

Now have a shiny new XL. Went for argos deal with SF4 and DOA. Gonna head to CEX with the old one.

If anyone wants any club Nintendo codes I have 5 I could give:

Bayonetta (1&2)

Assassins Creed 3

SF4

DOA Dimensions

I just got the smaller one with SF4 and DOA. The woman had no idea about the deal and had to manually look up each game on the website and then enter it on her till.

Also got a 16GB memory card for £8 from Tesco. Why couldn't Sony have gone for MicroSD for the Vita?

Do Game Boy games really look good on the 3DS? I kind of assumed they'd look really weird.

They look fantastic! A bit blown up you play them "full screen" however, scrotty furtlers, if after starting the game you hold Start + Select while it's booting you can play it in the native resolution and you'll get a cool Game Boy surround that looks ace with 3D on. You can also switch between black and white or green like the original GB by holding L + R and pressing Y whilst playing a game. I prefer Black & White :D

The 3D is definitely better on the new 3DSXL. For example I'm playing MH4U on the new 3DSXL and I can actually read the fonts with the 3D enabled. Yes, they've probably improved the font from MH3U as well.

I'd say the viewing angle is better on the new 3DSXL and the screen just looks generally "better" to me. That's completely fuzzy and maybe not much use, but as an overall "package", the new 3DSXL hardware is quite a bit better than the old 3DSXL.

The screen on the new 3DS XL is much better. More vibrant colours than before. I've just put Pilotwings in and it looks excellent. It was a bit of an eye strainer when it came out and I usually played that with the slider about half way, but with 'super stable 3d' and a more vibrant screen it really looks great now.

It's just as pixelated at the original 3DS XL (the nice anti aliasing filter that OoT and MM apply when in 2D mode makes it all the more noticeable), but because the 3D is so stable and so solid, you buy in to the effect more and really do forget about the pixels. Makes a huge difference.

Completely agree, with just 2D running it seems a poorer picture, even if you run in 3D with slider near the bottom so only a small 3D affect, it seems to be a much better picture. Only issue I am having is using the cstick with games like resident evil R. For some reason aiming up or down is a bit rubbish, left and right is fine. However that was after about 2 hours solid play. Anyone else getting similar results? So far Monster Hunter and MM seem unaffected.

Can't wait to play Xenoblade Chronicles at last. Can't see me touching anything other than my 3DS for a good while either; loving Majora's Mask, I'm about halfway through Persona Q, and I might even start Ocarina of Time again, or at least pick up my old save from a couple of years ago.

SF4 is excellent btw. Wasn't expecting much from it and the controls are obviously a bit fiddly on a handheld but it still works really well. The online stuff has so far been really good - I haven't noticed any lag and it's been quicker getting a match up than the 360 version. Can see me sinking hours into it.
