Get an XL. It's your best choice right now.

We're sure it'll happen sooner or later, but most likely not for awhile. I'm guessing another few years...

Considering the XL came out around 4 months ago, I'd say you're looking at about another year and a half to the next revision, but there isn't really any info on it either way.
It's a secret to everybody.

Just get a 3DS XL.

Im not a fan of the large size.

I already own a vita and every current gen console so im in no rush.

Might as well wait for the rehash.

Looking at release data they come out around 2 years after the original model

I dont actually mean Lite as in smaller.

I mean lite as in the upgrade.

I dont consider the DSi Xl a notable upgrade. It goes DS>DSL>DSi

I mean the actual upgrade to the 3ds.It might have inbuilt 2 analogues, it might have better battery i dunno

you do know nobody's forcing you to buy a 3DS right? if you don't actually want a 3DS, nobody's gonna make you buy one.

Why are you being a ****?

Obviously im interested in buying a 3DS.

Just imagine this scenario. You go and buy a original xbox. Next day the rehash is announced.

I am simply asking a question

Why is everyone using this word? Seriously.

Have you seen the internals of the 3DS?

Unless they make it bigger, there really isn't any room for a second analog stick.

Seriously, look at this and tell me where they're gonna stuff one in-


Just get an XL, because I strongly doubt there will be another model.


Anyway, TC, get the original model. I have both and much prefer the original. It's great. I have no doubt it will be updated, but probably not until late this year at the earliest.

People are still asking for a 3DS Lite?!?. the original 3DS IS a 3DS Lite! lmao xD. it's damn near if not exactly the same size in dimensions of the DS Lite.

And as far as screens of both systems go:

DS Lite's screens are both 3.12"

Original 3DS's screens are 3.53 (top) and 3.02 (bottom)

So why are people still asking for a DS Lite again?. the only "optionial" revision they should make to the original 3DS is to completely rid the 3DS of the fingerprint magnet gloss finish and use the same matte style finish inside and out like the 3DS XL.

the dslite was crap, just get an xl

How was the DS Lite crap? It looks better than the original DS, and it still could play GBA games unlike the newer DS models.

TC, there probably will never be a 3DS Lite. The original 3DS is already the same size as the DS Lite. Do you want the screen even smaller? The size was the only thing going for the DS Lite. It had the same features as the original.
