I'm to lazy to compare all the measurements. BTW, the measurements for the 3DS is here: (click on features)

So anyways is it smaller than any of the past DSes?

I just compared my DSlite and the 3DS and they're pretty much the same, except the 3DS is larger by a 10 th of an inch and and the same for the height. Closed, that is.

Even more of a reason to get it, my Lite has been a great partner and never troubled me with its weight. If it's pretty much the same weight wise, I'm as good as sold.

I think the TC wants to know about the screen sizes. Does the 3DS have larger screen sizes than the DSi or DSi XL?

Specs on the DSlite screens : Touch ~2.33 inch Top ~ 2.72 inch
Specs on the 3DS : Touch 3.02 inch Top 3.52 inch

Additionaly, I have recalculated the width, depth and the last mathematical aspect of 3D that I forgot.

Width : 5.3 inch
Depth : 2.85 inch
Other : 0.75 inch

Width : 5.3 inch
Depth : 2.9 inch
Other : 0.8 inch

Hope this helps.

^ You got Depth and Height mixed up. Depth is Other, Height is Depth
