Still waiting on one of these for my 3DS XL. :\
>tfw no boundless amounts of cool accessories for 3DS like the DS had
None. I already have a 2DS and I don't like wasting money. It's why I only buy one of the two pokèmon games when they come out ;)
This. Maybe if it were released alongside a New 2DS (which conceptually would still be about as stupid a name as New 3DS) I might bite as a cheaper way to access New 3DS titles, but even then there's nothing released as of yet to justify such a purchase.
I'm sure collectors will cream their pants for these, though, so if you do want one you'd better pre-order or otherwise get to it ASAP.

I preordered the green version one. The end of February can't come soon enough.
