Just sold mine. Good riddance.

The viewing angles for the 3D effect to work are really narrow. It just got uncomfortable after a while

Bought one, played through Ocarina 3D, sold it. It's the worthwhile game for the system ^^.

Yeah, and Amazon now too.

I played one for the first time the other day (with my Son in Argos). They only had Nintendogs and SFIV on the display units. The 3D effect is much better than I thought it could be, but I see what everyone means about it having a tight sweet spot. I guess it works using a similar method to those corrugated hologram posters where the 3cm difference in angle of each eye is enough to reveal/blockout each picture; so (I think) there's nothing really that could be done about the tight sweet spot without a drop in screen sharpness or quality.

The one game in the line up that most interests me is pilotwings, but apparently reviews of that are a bit disappointing.

You'll still save a ton getting one from the UK, even if you get a member here to get one for you. 115 quid on amazon = 225 NZD, with postage included it'll still fall short of the prices being asked here. Worth looking into :)

Sold mine about 2 months ago, Too finicky trying to hold the screen dead still for 3D then waiting for your eyes to adjust, DSI XL is still Nintendo's king of handhelds imho.
