So are most people getting the XL model over the reg version now ?

I've never had a 3DS but was wondering now that the XL is out for a while now, if pretty much everybody is getting the XL version ?

Its just what Nintendo is pushing. I have my original and I like it and just bought a CPP to add a bit of comfort, but it really just depends on what you would prefer the heft and larger screen.

I think most people are, unless they are in a money crunch or have tiny hands (like parents buying the console for a 6 year old). There really isn't any reason to get the original when reviews say the XL fixes a lot of the problems people had like the screen getting scratched while closing the system, the start, select and home buttons, and apparently classic DS games look better on an XL. Right now I can't justify getting rid of my 3DS for an XL, but I haven't heard of anyone that did regretting the decision.

standard 3DS is being sold on Black Friday for 150 with downloaded SM3DLand bundled in. Aside from that, it's all the XL now.

I bought one because the XL feels cheap and makes 3DS games look worse. Plus i got mine for $140 whereas a XL was $199.

I got a regular one just last week because I'm waiting for a limited edition XL to come out and the flame red was going out of production so I just had to have it in my red handheld collection

If Japan is any indication, then yes, "most people" are falling for it.

"Falling" has at least two usages, by the way.

Apparently China is getting only the XL.
What's the buzz? A high voltage positive ion attack!? Chaaa!

The 3DS XL feels cheap but the 3DS doesn't.

Get out.

The bottom screen of my XL feels kinda strange. It makes this little scraping sound whenever I slide my stylus on it. Screen protectors would probably fix that though.
