New 3DS. XL or not XL, on second thought...

Posted April 29th, 2015 at 10:24 PM by Starry Windy

Back then I remember posting that I was having mixed feelings when USA decides to release the XL-sized New Nintendo 3DS, and now I have another reason why sometimes I wish Nintendo of America would release normal-sized New 3DS. Usually, my country usually imports the 3DS console and games from America, which means any decisions from NOA could adversely affect how we will got the console there.

Other than that, I have personal issues to settle with. Back then I would want to get 3DS XL, just because it has bigger battery life, and I thought bigger is better, at least until several months ago. Lately I find my hands are crampy after playing much on my 3DS XL, not to mention that it's heavier too, the issues that I was not experiencing when I was holding my Nintendo DS Lite back then, which makes me reconsider that I might get a normal-sized New 3DS. Besides, I don't want to have some pain after playing it for long time.

Sometimes I don't know what to do, but now all that I wish is that normal-sized New 3DS will be released in America soon, so that I can feel comfortable when playing it again.

    It honestly might be. The reason why the new 3ds XL is a thing is due to popular demand (at least, from what a GameStop employee told me). Simply put, sales were observes between the 3DS XL and the 3DS regular, and the XL sold a lot more (apparently), so to appease the majority, Nintendo released the XL sized New 3DS here.

    It wasn't a bad move at any rate; I see everyone and their mom with a New 3DS nowadays so I'd say it's going quite well on Nintendo's end. If it keeps going like this, there probably won't be a reason to release a regular sized New Nintendo 3DS, as unfortunate as that may be, but trying to see things from a business perspective, I suppose.

    So there's that.

    Oh... I see. Actually, I like XL too, but it's just that after the cramping incident is what makes me reconsider if I should get New 3DS XL or not, that's all.
