So no price drop announced for XL in the new few months? Good time to buy one?

typo in title: "next few months". Sorry

I've googled on the internet, but only find rumor on price drop for the original model, not the XL. And nothing too for the following months. Can anyone confirm this to me? Because if so, I think I'll be doing the big jump tonight and finally upgrade to the XL after work (just wish that I won't lose any game saves in the transfert process, but from what I've read, I should not).

Unfortunately, I'm buying it new (so no porn...for now), and I'm also 100% digital games now. I had KI at one point, which I sold (was not yet totally into it at that point so I didnt mind). If Nintendo release it digitally, I may purchase it again, but since it was coming with a stand, I'm pretty sure it would be reason enough for Nintendo to NOT release it on the eShop (which would be stupid, because it seems to be the favorite 3DS games of tons of people, and I'm sure many would like to have it on their system all the time).

If there was to be a drop any time soon it most likely wouldn't have been any lower than the sales that were going for $160. That would have been a good time to pick one up.

Unfortunately, I didnt saw this offer anywhere where I live, else I would have taken advantage of it. I'll have to take the 199$ standard price, but I'm ready to bit bullet (also because I can't stand my touch-screen on my standard 3DS anymore, which was screwed after intense Theatrhythm gameplay). I would have waited only if there was an official one I didnt heard soon.

Purchase done, transfer completed, all the saves still intact. I'm so happy I can now enjoy the XL! My eyes and hands don't hurt anymore!

Believe it or not the best time to buy was when it first came out so could have gotten all those free games that for the most part are still not available on the virtual console. But yes get a 3DS XL its pretty amazing. worth every penny.

There's still that free game offer in the UK and Europe, until the 15th of January or so. I picked Super Mario 3D Land. Layton is also available; the other games in the offer look awful.

Unfortunately, I live in NA. And at this point, it's kinda too late. Like I said, I already got the XL :)
