Shouldn't be too late for this:
Surprised by this, since my total steps keep rising year on year.
Played titles: 10
Total Playtime: 203:50
1. Super Smash Bros. 108:47
2. Bravely Default 69:16
3. Pokemon Omega Ruby 13:26
4. LoZ: Link Between Worlds 5:17
5. Streetpass Mii Plaza 3:12
Lower playtime this, which is to be expected as I didn't actually get a new 3DS game all year. Still I'm glad as I finally finished Bravely Default a full 21 months after I got it. I also thought I would just stop using the 3DS version after Wii U came out and yet this version still makes up about half of my Smash playtime.
As for 2016, well my top 2 most played games on this console, FE: Awakening and Bravely Default are getting sequels and I still play Smash bros a lot and it's very likely we'll get the next 3DS main series Pokémon game this year. If I can find the time, I could easily end up breaking records this year.

I have claimed Drapion and Fiora from Xenoblade Chronicles.
Man mine broke a couple months back, so I can't tell the stats exactly. I can tell you that they were pretty low numbers though. It is true that I haven't missed much since then, but Z is gonna come around sooner or later... I gotta get that thing fixed!
Days Left (including today): 53
Since I got 0 steps two years in a row, I should try and change that this year.

The salt is real here!
Looks like I finally have a good reason to upgrade. My og 3DS is on its last legs, and those Red/Blue faceplates look sick. Plus both games on VC included! Do we know the release date? The main site didn't specify.
I have claimed Pokemon Alpha Sapphire and Dunban.
So, for people who have multiple 3DS, I can only have my account tethered to one right? So what happens to the other?
I use it for my Pokémon games to trade directly with main system. My 2DS has it's own Miiverse account, for various reasons. The Biggest is for a Celebi.
You don't need an account to download updates, to to play physical games.
If you're talking about Transferring from one system to a New system, your Old system will get factory reset at the end of the transfer process and any data is wiped.
Hello everyone, I've been thinking about buying my first 3DS so I can get back into Pokemon with Y and Omega Ruby. I'm not sure which model to go for though, so please help me decide if you can.
I've been looking at the New 3DS and New 3DS XL mostly, but a few comments I've read elsewhere on the internet have brought up some concerns.
1.) To start, scratches. Apparently the top screen can get scratched quite easily when the bottom screen is pushed against it, even if only a small amount of pressure is applied. When it's in a front trouser pocket and you're walking along, for example.
Are scratches with the New 3DS/New 3DS XL as bad as people say? Is one more prone to scratches than the other? I don't mind a few tiny unnoticeable ones since I'm not going to be reselling it but it would be nice, of course, to have none for many years.
2.) Portability, weight and size.
I'll be using it inside most of the time, but it would be nice to have the freedom to carry it into my back garden to use it or even use it in my dad's car and then keep it in one of my trouser pockets whilst walking along. Maybe take it out again if we sit down for a rest/picnic.
What are they like to hold? A bit on the heavy side, uncomfortable or the perfect weight? How often do you get hand cramps when grasping your New 3DS or New 3DS XL? (if you do, please specify which model).
I'm male (pockets are a decent size) but the New 3DS XL model is noticeably larger than the New 3DS. Has anybody personally been unable to fit their New 3DS XL into a front trouser pocket comfortably or is this not something I should be worried about?
Thank you all for reading. Your input will be highly appreciated!
2) The New 3DS XL can fit in the pockets if they are big enough. They fit well, but they are a bit larger than a smartphone. A bit on the heavy side, but very slightly.
I don't know about cramps since the N3DSXL is designed for people with big hands, especially adults. But if you have big hands and buy the regular size N3DS, well...
1) Nope. I walked with my n3DSXL a few times, and that never happened. I'm even putting pressure now, and not a single scratch.
2) Portability: Fine. Big phones are the hottest things now, so if you yourself own one like an iPhone 6, it will probably feel normal in your pants pocket. (I don't own one though, so I have no basis for this). Weight: You can definitely feel the weight, but it's nothing too heavy. I just compared it to my Vitas (1K and 2K), and the n3DSXL feels like it's a wee bit heavier than both combined. Still, it's not too heavy. Size: read portability.
The regular sized n3DS is perfect for me, someone with big hands
the XLs are just...so big. normal sized, though, so nice and unlike the regular 3ds it has much better ergonomics due to the smoother corners. I haven't experienced hand cramps. Fits perfectly in my pockets, about the size of most phones, i imagine.
I haven't encountered any noticable scratches on the top screen, but I'm always careful closing the thing. Like chris says, though, if you're worried there's always screen protectors (for both models).
Something else you should consider is that currently the only (NA) editions available for the regular n3DS are the Happy Home Designer bundle & the upcoming Red/Blue bundle. If you're not happy with either of those selection of faceplates (or don't care for white 3dses) you'll need to buy a few off the online store or import off amazon. Prices aren't too bad, depending on the plates; plain colored plates are pretty cheap.
Late, but here were my 3DS stats from 2015.

Now, which do I choose, the Pokémon regular new 3ds, or the fates xl...
Spoiler:- Want my Friend Code?:
Either choose February...
...or this month.
Recon Scouts the Competition!
But seriously, I'm actually having a really hard time deciding. I have fairly large hands so the XL is definitely a plus, but I like faceplates and the ability to change them at will, not to mention I can just import the superior FE faceplate and have a FE & Pokemon New 3DS
