I noticed that the XL's 3D effect did not seem as pronounced when I tried a demo unit at GameStop. Not sure if this is just due to a poor unit or if I should stick with the original. I haven't owned a portable in years, so it's not like I'm looking to trade up or anything. I'd be happy with the smaller screen if it truly works better.

Yes

Yes

Yes

and YES

For example; when you play DS games they have a much better native resolution (When you press start or select) than the 3DS.

Your eyes will be more comfortable; and just because of that you will enjoy games more.

I could never go back to a normal 3DS after playing with an XL.

So worth every cent

I did not like the release model at all. XL is at least acceptable.

very worth it.

- large screens = OMG
- better face buttons and dpad
- ds lite stylus placement on the side
- no more fingerprint magnet system
- matte finish
- rounded edges so your palms won't hurt
- slightly longer battery
- comes with 4gb sd card
- 3d slider can lock in place in the off position to prevent accidental 3d
- select, home, and start are real buttons now

Played a demo one. Screen difference is enormous.
Much larger sweet-spot for the 3d effect as well.
I'd highly recommend it.
