Also, is there the possibility of a price cut at some point between now and October?

I never got the point of the DS XLs. If I were you I'd just buy a purple 3DS.

3ds xl is a a significant improvement over the standard 3ds. Just feels more comfortable and once your used to playing on larger screens the original just seems so small. I play on my old 3ds when the 3dsxl is out of batteries and it just feels cramped and the screens are small. If they have a cool limited edition 3ds xl for pokemon x and y I will be pretty tempted to get it.

People often say the larger screen is a godsend.

I am leaning toward a red 3DS unless someone here can convince me otherwise.

I got it for the extended battery life.

The larger screen is pretty good too.

Well what exactly are you expecting to hear? It's what you think it is, a larger screen. And it does seem to have more comfortable controls. Personally I don't understand why you wouldn't choose it. But that's all there is. If that alone doesn't convince you, I don't see what will.

But doesn't the larger screen have the same resolution? I'm used to smaller screens and I'd rather it be better quality....

I want a purple one, but I'll get whatever I can find new on ebay...
