Nintendo president Satoru Iwata claims that the reason Nintendo developed the Nintendo 3DS XL is because consumers wanted it. According to Iwata, “When Nintendo introduced a larger screen version of the Nintendo DSi in the past, it was very much appreciated by consumers, and the Nintendo DS market expanded.” Iwata was asked if Nintendo will be releasing variations of the 3DS, after the 3DS XL releases, and he said, “We won’t deny the possibility.”
I thought they claimed that they wouldn’t be doing this?
Yes, I remember reading the same thing. Let’s see how it goes.
Yeah but they said they wouldn’t in the near future, obviously they can’t say they never will because there’s a possibility of there being one eventually…it probably won’t be frustratingly soon but I think the next handheld is more likely to be a 3DS revision than it’s successor
It was Miyamoto who said that. They don’t always have the exact same responses.
I’m thinking something was lost in translation. Miyamoto might have meant that there wouldn’t be a “new” 3DS with better specs, second pads, etc. The XL is really only a supersized 3DS and therefore not technically different.
They did, like a week ago. I’m pretty sick of Nintendo spitting out blatant lies recently.
Please don’t make article headlines that infer things from statements. Sure, it could very well be that they are making more 3DS revisions, but don’t report it as if that’s what they actually said. Report the story as it is.
Came here to say the same thing.
Yeah, I’m not sure how this translates into the fact that they are ‘probably’ working on one.
it’s just posted that way to get people to read it.
It’s a direct statement from Nintendo themselves. It’s not as if a third party developer said this.
Well you quoted in the article that they said they “won’t deny the possibility”, but then the title seems to take from this that they’re probably working on new revisions. That’s not what they said, but it’s what you’ve assumed from what they said. Excuse me if I’m wrong but they never actually say what you put as the headline, and if they did, it should be made clear in the content of the article as well
It’s a blog, he can post anything he wants!
it’s his blog, not an official news site. He just happens to have better news than most official news sites, so I come here every day!
What is the Wii u? It’s so confusing, is it a new controller for Wii u that will make the Wii hd.
No. The new controller is an very good add on for the Nintendo Wii.
It has a built in blueray, DVD player AND GPS.
The screen is 4K making it very clear and nice (however the Wii graphics will be the same.).
The new Wii controller has built in internet with makes online play possible even if you do not have a working internet connection on our Wii.
The new controller does of course not require a update. So even if your Wii is not connected to the internet you can still use it.
It will hit the stores on october 13 for cheap 52,54$ (order now from amazon and save 3 cent !!!).
If you do not have the money till then you have to choises.
1st go kill your self
2nd wait untill christmas. only three more bathes left till chrismas…
i can’t believe you still fall for that troll
He didn’t fall for anything. Read that comment and you’ll realize he’s trolling the troll.
Look Rewer he gets it.
Btw. nice picture. Oshawott is the cutest thing.
Look at my comment and you might notice that what I wrote was not true.
Yeah he does this with almost every other article -__-
If you look at the authors name you will see I didn’t actually write this article.
Well then the other authors need to cool it with the sensational headlines.
perhaps a 3ds pro, with extended battery, extra circle pad and the extra trigers? That would be a day one buy for me!
Same. Im getting a 3DS soon, but if they add those id buy another a give the other one to my brother, ots what ive always done
I don’t care if there is a revisions as long as the screen doesn’t change. The design can change.
good cuz the XL is ugly as balls
And balls sure are ugly
and you all express your oppinion in a rather childish way if i do say so. i think the xl is another sales masterpiece.
at least nintendos’ handhelds look intended to game, not to rub it like a girls forearm in a sensual situation
maybe in a year
one year searching for the pieces of triforse chards BITCH!!
LOL *triforce shards*
Im wondering if Nintendo putting a second circle pad on the 3DS would actually have caused developmental issues for games?
man u guys are annoying with your second circle pad. if you want to aim a cursor you need more than a circle pad you need a mouse or stylus please understand this a joystick is not quick enough
What is a 3DS XL? Is it just a larger and 3D version of the DSi?
No its my penis.
to explain, 3ds stand for 3 dicks, 3ds XL stands for 3 extra large male genitalia
no the 3ds, and if thats an attempt to be funny try harder
Harder? You mean like my penis in your dead grandmother hard?
u mean the same herpe infested penis u let your boyfriend put in his crusty herpes mouth?
dude do u have problems randomly making fun of dead people? do u have emotion problems? are u lonely? if u need someone to talk to im sure your local government social services office can help you out with that and get u feeling positive about who u are and mayb even start a new career/life
they better not. focus on next gen rather than revisions like you said you were, you liars.
Well the 3DS XL isn’t really a revision because the DSi was the final form of the DS and they only brought out the DSi XL to help people with some difficulty reading small text on the screen like grandparents or people with some disabilities that could prevent them from seeing small text.
There is a difference between a revision and an alternative. The XL is an alternative.
second circle pad
slighty larger bottom screen
not as bulky
inner camera is also 3d
more AR features
Oh and extra L and R buttons and also stylus to the side.
That might as well be the next gen console.
Again, why is this news?? Of course they will, we all know that this is not the last 3DS version.
DS December 2004
DS Lite June 2006 1 year 7 months
DSi November 2008 1 year 5 months
DSiXL October 2009 less than a year
3DS March 2011
3DSXL August 2012 1 year 5 months
Yep, true. We shouldn’t expect anything less.
Would someone please explain what the Wii u is please, is it a new controller that makes the graphics on the Wii hd?
It is a new controller for GameCube. You can put N64 cartridge(s) in it.
come on anonymous stop creating accounts,Anyway i hope sickr will make a better comment system in the near future
It’s different people, who have not put their email address in who get the same gravatar.
And inside those n64 cartdriges you can plug in a nes controller
HOOOOOO LEEEEEEEEE SHEEEEEEEEEEEEET
And plug your transfer pack to play Game Boy games in hd
Can it make toast?
Its a new SNES controller for the SEGA Playstation. You can watch people play on the xbox with it will you play your playstation games on your DS screen.
Same old patterns, Nintendo, same old patterns…
Damn so mad, I want the XL but I know in the future they will release a new 3DS with 2nd analog stick
Fucking of course they won’t deny it. It’s Nintendo. They’ll shovel out another one in 8 months if they can. That’s what they do now. Less quality, more quantity. Trickle out one or two little things with each revision.
I just hate the fact that the stylus is on the side again, I liked it better when it was on the back, and its not that metal telescoping stylus pen either. Im still gonna get one though
The consumers eh smh wow guess they are morons and brainless tools. Another scary thing im seeing is people putting companies intrest ahead of their own smh I thought we spoke with our wallets not the other way around
In the near future lol godamn you mean within a year . George carlin if you smart bastard you were correct these companies speak another language with vague terms
