I purchased this because I have a regular 3ds which has not worked out too well for me. The 3D function is a bit too much for my eyes so I keep it off. I have big hands and it just feels awkward. The 2ds xl on the other hand is ideal. The button configuration, the positioning of the cameras and speakers as well as the much larger screens are a plus. Add to that a memory card, AC adapter and a pre-installed game, you got a winning combination. Those are the pros. The cons for me are the size of the stylus and the positioning of the POWER button. 3 times the unit shut down mid-game because my pinky hit the POWER button. To fix that I ordered ergonomic hand grips! Overall the 2DS XL is a winner in my book.

$99 New 2DS XL is great!!
So I got my New 2DS XL in the mail yesterday and I gotta say I'm pretty pleased. FedEx rushed it to my door faster than I thought they would, and the system box was in excellent condition. The New 2DS XL started up exactly like it should have and even had Mario Kart 7 installed like the package said. I DID have to update the systems firmware before transferring my NNID to it from my older New 3DS XL. It took 30 minutes to transfer over, and I was able to redownload Mario Kart 7 afterward. 11/10 will purchase for my sister
Awesomeness for only $99!
I have the purple and silver version (received months ago as a gift) while my boyfriend has this one. We love them! There's so many games to explore and we enjoy playing games together with local multi-player. It's a great addition to my consoles. The current price is also hard to pass up!
Get the 2DS now while still being sold!
2DS XL on sale for only $99 and being discontinued, I couldn't help but get 2. One for now, one as a backup. The unit is sleek, and has a huge library of titles. What's not to love. Kids and adults a like love the little Nintendo handheld for almost a decade now!
Value purchase for adult gamer
So much cheaper for the same item than most places and comes with Mario Kart 7 ready to play out of the box. Not the most expensive piece of equipment so it's a bit fragile. Wouldn't recommend for younger kids to be honest... it's a value purchase for an adult gamer, imho. I think a kid might trash it compared to how durable the 2DS model or older GBAs.
For $99 s brand new 2DSXL a great deal! Plays all 3ds games and ds games. Plus i was able tobplsybsome old zelda games thst nintendo had on the e shop in this! Super fun, i am hapoy eith my outase for sure.
You cant beat this deal!
You cant beat this deal! I bought it because they are supposed to stop making them this year sometime. The XL is a lot better for holding than the regular 3Ds. This is lighter than older 3dsXLs. I found that I never used the 3D functions on my old one and I dont miss them on this 2DS. That is the only thing this 2DS XL is missing.
Great system for portable play. $99 is a steal!
Fantastic system at a great price when it is available. Plays all DS and 3DS (without 3D support of course) without problems. Great deal when it is available at the $99 price point. As it is being phased out, expect reatilers to start dumping game invnetory soon as well. Highly recommend screen protectors for upper and lower screens. Due tothe design the grey nubs can stick to the upper screen leaving behind weird marks that can be cleaned. Stocks seem to be drying up and only Walmart officially has this bundle at the $99 MSRP Nintendo lists. Adivce is to regualrly check in on the Walmart listing like sniping an eBay auction. Eventually you might luck out.
Great product, lacking on internal sound.
Actually really love the system. Finally replaced the 3dsxl my son lost in 2016. It's more lightweight and the screen seems more crisp even though it has no 3d slider. Then only reason I didn't give 5 stars is the sound quality, you can barely hear anything, headphones or computer speakers are a must. Wish they would have included bluetooth for connecting to soundbars. Shipping was great and on time though.
The system is so good but a downfall is that the system didnt even come with the preinstalled mario kart 7 game and i was really looking forward to playing that game, but other than that the system is great.
