I've heard Nintendo really went all out with the pixel density. Finally the recognize smartphones and tablets as legitimate competitors! Way to go Iwata!

Definitely not for the screen size alone, but all of the other nice features it has are great reasons.

Yes, it's worth it for the screens alone. The 3DS screens were way too small for me. Playing certain games would give me a headache with the 3D on, where the XL never gives me a headache with full 3D on any game. I don't notice any lowered quality in the graphics due to pixel density. Fortunately, the 3DS XL DOES have other features besides the improved screen, like better battery life, and added comfort.
Wait I got it! Super Mario 3D Land will be in California and Super Mario 3D World will be in Florida. Zing! ~AloofGuyXXVII

Pixel density is less on an XL, making the picture bigger. (The pixels are bigger on an XL making the screen bigger.) The resolution is the same as a 3ds. Pixel density is just a little less then what the DS lite has. Ds lite has a lower resolution, making the picture smaller then an XL. (The pixels on the DS lite are about the same size as the pixels on an XL, but there are less of them on the DS lite, which makes the picture smaller.) (A DS lite picture size is just a little smaller then compared to a DS game on an XL when started with the Start or select button held down.)
But, Yes it is worth buying for the bigger screens.
