The regular 3DS' build quality is terrible...

Honestly, this thing feels like it was made out of the cheapest plastic Nintendo could find. The outer shell is flexible and the top screen feels like it will snap in half when you open it. And what was Nintendo thinking when they came up with the "sandwich design" and these awkward shaped hinges? I can't believe people actually paid $250 for this piece of junk when it first came out.

At least Nintendo acknowledged their mistakes by releasing the 3DS XL. No reason to get a regular 3DS anymore when the 3DS XL is better in every other way.

how can you claim the 3ds is terrible when the xl is equally crap?

Really? As if console wars weren't bad enough, we're warring over versions of the same system?

This board is a cesspool atm. I dunno why I'm still here, though. I guess it's just my urge to mock the kids...

TC...I was thinking the same thing. I've been playing on an XL since it launched. Hadn't held an OG since then. I held an OG yesterday and it felt so different.

I wouldn't say that it felt cheap. But, it felt more mechanical....a bit more fragile. The XL feels alot more plastically, but heftier and more durable.

Well TC that is just your stupid opinion.
I played XL few days ago and small buttons but big console is stupid.
Also the screen is unneccesery big so im happy with my original 3ds.

This board is really ruined,not only Sony fanboys attacking 3DS but now 3DS XL owners attacking 3DS...

Why?? If you dont like it,just ignore it and play your precious XL if you like it so much instead of wasting your time showing how immature kid you are.

Hmmm...let's see.

I have a regular 3DS and I have no problems with it. My mother traded hers for an XL and the back cover peels away, which I believe is the norm. Call me crazy, but electronics that aren't even fully attached are generally not considered to be a *good* thing (not that I can think of any other one that does this). The speakers are CRAP and her headphone jack doesn't even work properly. Yeah, I'll keep my good old reliable 3DS, thanks.
