I bought this DSI XL for my 10 yr. old and he loves it. It has a bigger screen than the other models and the camera is a great feature. We currently own 3 and will buy another for my niece.
My children love their new Dsi XL 's They spend a lot of time making little cartoon videos using the flipnote feature, adding audio and even tweaking the audio. Then they send it to each other and tweak it more. I love the ability to buy one game cartridge and they both can play via the Download/host feature (only on select games). They even enjoy chatting to each other from their separate bedrooms. The graphics are really pretty good too. Maybe not as good as an Ipod Touch, but it works great for them. They also love taking pictures and changing them, morphing them, and finally sending them to each other. As a parent I like the fact that I can disable the internet, so I don't have to worry about inappropriate stuff. It was money well spent.
this device deffinatly meet my expectations and the internet is good i realy like it, and the cameras are very good i love the fact that u can send and edit photos! deffinitly recomended!
The DSI came and we were amazed at the actual screen size/ It's huge! Very satisfied, it was a great deal and worth every penny we paid.
Just a fabulous gaming system. We have owned several different ones- including the WII. We have four children and I personally felt the WII was a collosal waste of money- this game is so much more user friendly. The kids love it and can play it independently - and never want to put it down. All of the games we have purchased have been wonderful as well- not yet found a dud- which was not the case with the WII. I highly recommend. Well worth the money- I recommend the XL and the accessory package as well. By the way touch screen is also amazing! My kids are 11, 6, 4, and 2 - something for all of them!
bought this for my 4 yr old grandson,he loves it, and figured it out by himself. very pleased.
-Larger screen makes games so much easier to see..I can play without my glasses
-Adjustable screen brightness helps eliminate glare and eye strain
-Blue color is much more pleasing in person than online.
-Larger screen makes the overall experience so much more enjoyable
-I have no problem with holding the larger size or the weight..can't really feel a difference in this one and regular DS I have been using.
-Great price of $99 at Walmart..which is $30 cheaper than Amazon Cons:
I seriously cannot think of one. I only hope is it as durable..we have had regular DSs for years, and they took so much abuse and still worked perfectly. We dropped them many times, and although hinges got damaged, unit held together and play was not affected. Not many items are made this well!
I went to the store a couple days ago and got the dsi xl in midnight blue it is really great the color is defintly for girls and boys it has all the same featurs as the ds lite and then it has more i love the cool games that came pre downloaded i forgot the coad to my wireless internet so havent been able to get on love the bigger screen much easer to draw on pictochat so amazing and great price!!!!!!!
My daughter (7 1/2) loves her new DSI XL. It's bigger than her brother's DSI (points scored for little sister). The color choices were cool. She loves this blue one. $189 was a good package deal, still wonder why $165 for the unit. Definitely a BIG (read not cheap) gift!
I have an original DS and cannot get over all the better features this one has. A camera, internet access and built in games. That the screen is bigger is an added bonus.
Very cool item, much more to do than play just the game that u insert. But very very hard to hook up to the internet, so if you are buying this just for the internet change your plan
First of all I am an old guy with almost every system. I have 3ds, 3ds xl, ds lite, game boy micro....etc (list way too long). Since I am older my hearing and vision are definitely deteriorating. I was excited to get my 3ds xl but immediately disappointed at at sound quality and low volume (couldn't hear anything). Nintendo had to use thinner inferior speakers to get the upper screen thinner. I purchased the Dsi xl because of the excellent game library, LOUD CLEAR SOUND, and big bright screens. Excellent system for old fogys like me.
We just purchased this for our oldest's 8th birthday. I'm glad we waited until he was 8. This is too delicate, and complicated for younger. But he took to it just fine and figured it out just fine. He loves it. It was a bonus that this came in a bundle. Which helped me choke down the price!
We used this to upgrade our daughter from the original DS. She loves the size of the XL. She passed her old DS down to her little brother. They can now link together and play games like Mario Brothers as a team. We've enjoyed hearing them giggle and play sitting next to each other.
My first Nintendo DSi XL came from walmart in middletown for $204.00 I got the red one that day and ever since I got it I just couldn't put in down I bought four games from game stop in middletown and I just played with it every single day I loved it and was glad to have it. My red Nintendo broke because it got water in it so my uncle bought me a new one I wanted the metallic rose pink Nintendo dsi xl but they didn't have any so I got the midnight blue witch is a nice color. Online the pictures don't really do it justice when you get the game it's beautiful in person the color just shines. I love my new game and i'm glide I got it again I will get it again and again when ever it breaks because it's fun better and great to play with. I would diffidently recommend to everybody. !!
What a great system. I love the flipnote application. I like how you can send pictures over pictochat. It's like a mini-laptop, games,internet,nintedo shop. It has it all. I recomend this 100% to anyone. It is actually not as childish as the Nintendo DS lite. I'm in love with it. I fly very often and take it with me on the plane. All four of my children have one that they got for christmas last year. I recently got mine at a nearby Wal-Mart. Nintedo has really stepped up their game. In my opinion this beats PSP and other devices. My children love them so much they beg me to let them take it to church. There is nothing I don't like about this system. Great job Nintendo!
My daughter is ten and really enjoys this console. sShe has shown me the many things that it can do and I think it is great for all ages.
So far this has been a hit with my grandson, and it does much more than i expected. It arrived quickly, packaged nicely. thank you from a happy Grandma !!!!
I bought this for my daughter for her birthday which is in December. I opened it to just peek at it but we have a DS lite for my other daughter and it is great. I really like the size of the XL. Also the DSi has a built in camera which the DS lite does not. Good price. I paid the same price for the DS lite a couple of years ago.
I purchased this for my 8 year old son. Let me tell you this thing can do it all. He loved to take photo's with it and alter them. He can play his DS games or connect to the internet. I think it was well worth the money. Only thing I did not like was the stylis that came with it. They include the small one and a full size one. The full size one is already lost.
