New 3DS XL: Thumbstick Athletes Podcast Episode 186

Nintendo continues their tradition of naming their products weird things with the New 3DS XL.  At first glance you would just think it was a new 3DS XL and not an entirely new product.  Just the like whole Wii/Wii U debacle, the average consumer would probably have no idea what the difference is.  Bad name and lack of charging cable aside, three out of the four Thumbstick Athletes picked up the new 3DS last Friday.  We of course covered the features and differences between the New 3DS XL and standard 3DS and 3DS XL, (It's even confusing to type for someone who knows the difference)  as well as giving our impressions of the system at this point.  Buyer beware...transferring your Nintendo Network ID from an old system can be quite the process.
