Double posting because I got one! Build quality seems to be quite a bit better than the old XL, and the finish is really nice - I got a black one and it's more of a gunmetal/charcoal gray with a carbon fiber pattern. The first time I tried the super-stable 3D in the store, it didn't seem to work, but I tried it again a few days later and my eyes adjusted to it. It's so much better than the 3D on the old 3DS, and I'm actually playing with the 3D on now. C-stick works okay, but it's not a game changer or anything, and I don't see stuff like dual stick shooters working well on it. It's a camera control stick and that's probably about all it'll be capable of being. Stylus sucks horribly though since it's a bit shorter than the 3DS XL's stylus and hard to pull out, and I'm not a fan of the card slot/stylus/power button placement. But overall it seems like a substantial improvement and I was enjoying playing Majora on it last night.
