I came in here awile ago asking but I am considering it again. in 3 days I will be getting between 150-200$ anyway.


I was trying to sell my dsi xl with three crappy games and the system for about 200$ If you care here is the ad:

some guy threw me an offer of 120$ should I try to at least ger 130$? the guy said he did not need the games with it.


also note I have a ds lite to keep me company until I get one



Why I want a 3DS: playing my original ds games with the analog stick. Just thinking about playing SM64DS with a analog stick sounds great.

Ther n64 remakes.


I am also willing to see what other titles are coming.


and finally the e shop.

No reason to keep a DSi. I kept my DSL only because of GBA games but DSi can't play those.

The XL looks awesome, so I would personally keep it. 3DS screens are way smaller

I traded the xl at launch semi reluctsntly thinking id miss the screen size etc plus the fact it looked so dam nice, have i regretted it once? No not at all i can still play every ds game and the screen size hasnt bothered me in anyway. I know its the same size roughly as a normal dsi but it just feels bigger is weird. Anyway id say go for it extend your access to a broader library amd enjoy the 3d.

I'd keep the DSL, that's what I'm doing. DSXL has bigger screens but the 3DS is pretty much a more refined DSXL.

No. Put that 150-200 towards more DS games.

There are less then 5 games actually worth playing on the console. At least wait until the end of the year when some of the good stuff comes out and for reviews on the Vita before dropping hundreds on a console to play 2-3 games.
