is it true that female gamers prefer the normal 3DS over the XL ?

Get her the XL.

There's no reason not to and the size of the hands is irrelevant.

I don't know about other women, I'm happy with my Aqua Blue Ambassador 3DS. I don't really care for the 3DS XL one.

I have a regular 3ds and plan to get an xl soon. I don't think there is any specific generalization you can draw here. You know your friend better than we do, so think about her playing habits and preference in handhelds.

Either way I don't think she'll be upset, since hey fee 3ds.

My gf says the normal one I let her play with is too small for her. She says she wants it extra large and preferably black. My normal one just can't satisfy her :(

My daughter wants the XL.
Never argue with an idiot. They just drag you down to their level then beat you with experience.

While I"m personally wanting the 3DS XL myself(27 year old female gamer) I'm waiting to see if more colors come out first. Probably more apt right now to get the Midnight Purple 3DS to go with my Aqua blue one first over getting a red or blue XL atm.(only reason i have the aqua blue is because of the ambassador program, would have otherwise waited until the midnight purple came out in the first place)

...strangely enough I have both versions and do prefer my midnight purple 3DS. It fits in my pocket while the XL does not.
If you have the term "Official ___ of the __ board" in your signature, you probably hate yourself and don't realize you can't cosplay on boards. GTFO!

Im a woman and I upgraded from a DS Lite to a DSi XL and havent touched my lite since. I held off getting a 3DS because you knew an XL model was coming due to the success of the dsI XL. When the 3DS XL came out, I finally got a 3DS.

The Lite's are better for people on the go, that always take their 3DS everywhere they go and play it when and where they can. The XL's are more suited for play at home and for someone who doesnt take it with them all the time or play it in public.

Having said that I still take mine in my purse just to try and get SP's but I just play Angry Birds on my phone when out and about.

I dont think a persons sex has anything to do with it, its just personal tastes, much like anything else.
