@andrewb: Most people upgraded to XL when that came out, and a lot of people have gotten their 3DS's and XLs once it made sense to do so (a year or two into its life) when game library actually made it worth it. I personally have had the 3DS XL for a year and a half, and it will be probably close to 3 years of ownership by the time this new one comes to NA. However I am still unhappy about this. I think its stupid for them to fragment their audience, and even though money isnt a problem, I am not going to be buying this just based on principle, its a mediocre upgrade, Ill hold off for 4DS or knowing nintendo the "new, new, new 3DS" which will be backwards compatible with all this nonsense just like 3DS is compatible with DSi
I have both a knock off one and a genuine one. Knock off one works well; however its range is MUCH MUCH shorter than genuine one. If you plan for the signal to go through walls do NOT get the knock off. From my testing, knock off works great when distance is under 10 feet. Genuine one goes up to 60 feet, and through walls without any problems.
Knock off one also gets progressively less range the more controllers you have hooked up to it. If you are playing split screen (I was playing Awesomnaughts piped from Steam to TV) and the range on it was less than 10 feet with 3 controllers hooked up. Genuine one worked equally good (60+ feet) with one and 4 controllers.
PS - you can get a genuine one from ebay for under $15
I am a Russian, both of my grandmothers were from Ukraine, but then the whole Bolshevik Revolution happened and they had to walk from Europe to Siberia (took years of walking and walking).... just because they were educated and had money.
I play DOTA 2 a decent amount and there are Ukrainians on all the time, I run into one at least every day (and this is on US West server). So they are doing OK (as far as the gaming scene is concerned).
