    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 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 >____>

                  Edit: **** I killed the DCC LOL

                  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!

                    I fell asleep. Im lazy >.< Ive just felt so tired lately. I guess I need to get to bed earlier, though funny enough I feel more tired when I do go to bed earlier.

                    Hello again DCC.

                    I only just got up and I'm still not feeling sleepy, but I do love checking on all my PC buddies.
