I definitely wouldn't worry about not using your DS after you get a 3DS though--the 3DS's DS playback isn't very good. It's either blown up and very blurry or it's awkwardly small and centred on the screens. @[email protected] Neither are very appealing for me so I just use one of my original DSes whenever I want to play an actual DS game.
I heard that about the 3Ds' playback and that why I'm still gonna use my DS for DS games and then get a DS Lite or DSi for trading Pokemon rom my other games/transferring my Pokemon from other games. That way, too, I don't have to bother my brother to use his.

    I might just get a 3DS soon. Not sure if I want XL or the 3DS but the reason is only because of X & Y!

    I prefer the look of the XL because it's matte instead of that cheap looking plastic that plagues the original 3DS line but... the console's just too big for me. T_T; I have tiny hands and the 3DS as it is is the perfect size but any bigger and it gets uncomfortable.

    The big screen of the XL is probably gorgeous though. :x I really like my DSi's screen and I imagine it's just a nicer upgrade than even that comparatively. I'd definitely go for the XL if its larger size isn't actually a problem.

      I find it weird that I haven't even seen a 3DS or the XL in real life yet.

      The 3DSXL is kind of ugly and oversized, so I went with a regular sized so I can play Fire Emblem: Awakening and the forthcoming Pokemon games, with the other stray gems that might rear their ugly heads into my wallet at some point or another.

      I'm working on repairing a DSiXL, but the screens are sooo big o__O

      I'm actually kinda interested in them now.

      I'm not sure wether to buy a 3DS or a 3DSXL... 3DS is smaller but the 3DSXL got better performance.. I'll just have to wait and see what I'll be getting.

        Another option is to always buy just a cheap used DS.. and for DSXL or regular DS.. it depends on your priorities.. What's more comfortable to hold for you? And how much do you value the extra battery life?

        I don't like buying a used console, I wanna have my very own where the first hands to touch it is mines ;~;

        But the extra battery life of the XL is really tempting..

          Get the 3DS XL if you really want to get a 3DS. It's a lot more comfortable than playing a regular 3DS because of the rounded edges of XL compared to the sharp edges of the regular 3DS.

            Not particularly true though.. I find the regular 3DS to be more comfortable because I have tiny hands and find the XL a bit heavy/ bulky when using a stylus. I also prefer it to be smaller so I can fit it into places more easily (like different compartments of my handbag/purse.

              That's the opposite for me honestly because I have rather large hands and my old 3DS before I upgraded to an XL was only comfortable when I had a protective case on it honestly. I never really noticed the weight difference between the two though. I have no problem carrying my XL around with me because I have large pockets and I often carry my portable systems in the case to my laptop.

              I use my DS Lite quite a lot actually. So I'll need it to be quite portable and not really heavy. But also be able to stay on pretty long :C

                I guess you can also always just buy two battery packs and swap them when the battery starts getting low, no?

                  I find the rounded corners of the XL so uuuuugly. I had a problem just in general with the 3DS not looking like an advanced piece of technology but instead like a cheap plastic toy, and giving it rounded kiddy corners didn't help that, lol.

                  B-but the rounded corners are so you don't stab yourself in the eye with it!

                    They probably rounded the edges so that if/when it is dropped and if it landed on one of the corners on initial impact, the resultant force would be less than if the edges were pointed.

                    . . . Or it could be a safety measure for little kids too >____>

                    The rounded edges and the horrible colors did in my desire to buy an XL, pretty much. :/

                    Aw, I like the colors. The blue is pretty damn sexy, if I do say so myself.

                    I really want to get an XL...I just can't justify it since I already own a 3DS and that does the exact same thing. The 3DS is really cramped for me since I have big hands, and the XL is a lot more comfortable, but not for an extra $200.

                      I lost my DS for some and I'd like to know at what price I could get a new one or a 3DS.
                      And also, hi everyone!
