Got my XL about 3 weeks ago for FE:A, AC, and a whole bunch of other titles I've missed. I kept my DS also after much deliberation when I realized I needed it to play Pokemon. --- This signature is reserved for a witty remark... of which I have none.
I got mine the Christmas before last because my old DS Lite was broken (screen hinge wore out and a few buttons stopped working). I'll likely wait to get the next edition of 3DS rather than an XL (assuming there is one), as my only real complaint is the short battery life. --- Playing) Fire Emblem: Awakening, Guild Wars 2 Waiting) Pokemon XY
So many games already out for the 3DS that I must get and play. Unfortunately, I've not been able to snag a system yet :( Massive health issues the last few years prevented me from buying much of anything. I really do hope I manage to finally get a system this summer or early Fall. Definitely need to get it in time for X Y Pokemon. --- "It's smaller on the outside." -- Doctor Who Christmas Special 2012

There probably won't be another 3DS redesign. They usually only do the one. Anyway, the 3DS XL's battery life is much better than the regular 3DS according to what I've read.
The only system to get more than one redesign was the Game Boy Advance, which had the original, SP and Micro (the micro being impractical as no accessories would work with it). --- Looking forward to Pokemon X and Y. White FC: 0862-2660-4156 / 3DS FC: 2492-4470-1418 / White 2 FC: 4556-7836-2644
Better battery life, the 3D effect is more stable, and hardware is overall better. If you don't have one yet, there's no reason not to get the XL. --- Empress of the Jovian Empire Mechanical Advisor for Golden Sun: Adept's Refuge
I don't see how anyone can play an original 3DS over the XL model. It's like playing with a NES model 1 controller over the Dogbone(or SNES one if you don't remember the remodeled NES controller).
I plan on getting another 3DS XL, but waiting to decide on a Japanese one or limited edition Pokemon one this time. --- Currently playing: Pokemon Platinum(493/493 now a 3 Star Trainer!), Street Fighter 3(Xbox online), Rocket Knight Adventures(Sega Genesis)
