I had totally forgotten about the 3DSXL when I got mine. But really I am perfectly content with mine. :D And when XY were announced I totally thought "Perfect timing!" as well haha.

Only $50 more? You make that sound like a little. :c

Then again, that's coming from a 17 year old who's broke and had no job. (y) I'm just gonna get a regular 3DS

The regular 3DS is cheaper and I think it's available in more colors, I was really excited when the purple one got sold and that's what I have, besides I have small hands so the smaller system is perfectly fine for me.

Actually, a 3DSXL is cheaper than a 3DS in some stores in Canada. Jordan can tell you. If and when he gets back from work on a Sunday ;;

It's a cool system nonetheless and from what has been shown of the Pokemon game graphics for X and Y it should be pretty nice.

I just much prefer how the XL looks compared to the 3DS and size don't matter to me. I'm so used to using my big DS Phat , which isn't much smaller than the XL (from the looks of it.) so I'm comfortable with how big the XL is.
It's $199 on Nintendo website so about 40-50 dollars more which is probably a bit too expensive for someone who also has no job. So I'd be fine with just a 3DS if it's cheaper in the long run, but I prefer to have an XL.

The only thing I like about the XL is the longer battery life.. but I actually prefer the feel and size of the regular 3DS <3

The battery life is pretty bad :/ I just deal with it though, I can't handle much more than an hour of game playing on the 3DS anyway.

That is what I want so much...better battery. :\ So often have I come home to find my 3DS flashing red when I swear I just finished charging it haha.

I get quite a bit on my 3DS (6 hours) but an option if you have an older 3DS could be to just buy another battery, charge both, and bring both with you on trips so you can just swap it out?

Not sure, but I remember you are able to buy regular DS batteries so I just figured. Maybe have a look on Amazon or inquire at a game store about them next time you are out?

I wouldn't buy myself a 3DS XL due to losing all of my ambassador games from my normal 3DS (before the price cut).

If a 3DS battery is not over 50$, spend this on buying a new battery instead than 3DS XL

Having an ipad or something so you can use the touchscreen technology would be amazing. I've emulated professor layton and then they make you write out letters and I can't write a T because it takes two strokes and I can't do it fast enough on a computer @-@

Speaking of which, I don't get why people complain about the normal 3DS…I checked, and it's about as big as the DS Lite, and nobody complained about that…oh, white people.

You can if you jailbreak it, I think.

Though it's just for GBA, I wouldn't think that they couldn't do it for the DS from what I can tell from the hardware.

I think I need a new 3DS, for some reason my L and R buttons stop working on my handhelds.

I dont know ANYTHING about emulation, so I have to ask this:

What about it is illegal, exactly? :c

Because companies believe they'll lose money if consumers download their games through an emulator rather than buying a physical copy.

it's the exact same logic that applies to the music industry
basically, attacking those who aren't buying into capitalism with every fibre of their being

It's the same as downloading a song. You download the games without owning them.

It is legal if you do own the games though.

I thought it wasnt no matter if you own the game or not since technically you're still pirating a copy.

I read somewhere that it's legal. Because you already paid for the game, you're just playing it in a different way. Or something.
