I'm thinking about getting the 3DS XL soon, but I'm wondering, do the DS games look any good on the 3DS XL? I ask this because of the size of the screens. --- "Let me explain the difference between you and me: you watch Star Trek, I live it." Howard Wolowitz

I have 999 on my XL and it's fine.

My games look fine, but I mostly have 2D games. Some say that 3D (polygonal) games look not-so-hot. --- What? You pooped in the refrigerator? And you ate the whole... wheel of cheese? How'd you do that? Heck, I'm not even mad; that's amazing.

It looks slightly bad being blown up to an odd resolution but it's nothing too terrible. It's like playing any game at a non native resolution. --- PSN - zergslayer69 Friend Code - 3909 8848 9513

Hmm to be quite honest the only DS games I have interest on are the Pokemon games (Platinum, Black/Black 2). --- "Let me explain the difference between you and me: you watch Star Trek, I live it." Howard Wolowitz

In my opinion they look better on the 3DS XL than on the original 3DS and smidge better than DS. Basically it's the same as if you were playing on a DSi XL but with a bit of smoothing added to try and make the 3D DS games not be super jaggy.
Overall 3DS XL would win my vote in best method of playing DS games. :) --- http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-fx4HYOunLc&feature=plcp 3DS FC - 3007-8283-2971

i couldn't get used to playing pokemon black 2 on my XL, far to fuzzy and distorted for my eyes.
i had to get out my ds lite for the first time in ages to play through the game, however I've just played through ace attorney 4 on the XL and that looked fine to me.
it seems one of the above posters is correct when they say that 2d games looks better than 3d games on the XL. --- PLEASE HELP MY CAUSE GO TO firstname.lastname@example.org AND ASK FOR A EUROPEAN RELEASE FOR DEATHSMILES 2X I WILL BE FOREVER IN YOUR DEBT.

If you hold select or start while launching the game it goes into native resolution mode, and basically takes up about as much space as the DSi screen. Looks a lot better. --- May thine...strength...help the world be mended http://i.imgur.com/HdBP0.jpg
