Detailed review
It's a big 3DS. The screen is really the killer. The lower PPI means a diminished 3D effect (if you actually wanna use it) and the screen is just not as crisp as the original 3DS. Otherwise a great device with a great game library and backwards compatibility with DS games. The E-Shop is pretty robust too, pricey but robust.
