I know it's been asked a million times, but, again, worth upgrading to 3DS XL?

More specifically, does the original 3DS have ANYTHING over the XL? Apart from the current lack of CPP.

How do DS games look (in both resolutions)?
Any notable loss of graphics quality with 3DS games being enlarged?
Any contrast/brightness issues?

Nah, not really, unless you want a bigger screen. The 3DS XL is basically for anyone who doesn't have a 3DS yet.

Once again....

+ battery life
+ screen size
+ stylus placement
+ 3D slider lock; no glowing 3D indicator on top screen
+ screens reduce glare
+ D-Pad
+ home, start, & select buttons

- garbage sound quality
- dire brightness quality
- power button "engraved" in the system
- still has dire image quality for DS games without shrinking the image of course
- cheap battery door and build overall
- no compatibility with the previous model's accessories
- cheaper screens; easier to get scratched up (from my experience, and I take the utmost care of my stuff)

Mind you, what's in bold is the main reason why I'll never waste money on a 3DS XL ever again. Not worth $200 at all in my opinion.

Not really a troll, 'cause some of those are true.

Well the stylus placement is opinionated. I have the original and I love the stylus placement, and the size of the console, and the color choices.

The funny thing is I truthfully answered the TC's questions and even provided more details than necessary; yet he wants to degrade to childish mud slinging, responding, and 1UPing his fellow arse hurt posters.

Oh well. At least my point was made clear. And you're welcome TC. And you wonder why no one else is answering. Expecting a response when you let others force you into spitting on people who DO respond?
