There is no reason for the original 3DS to exist in a 3DS XL world. It is superior to the regular 3DS in every imaginable way.
I like that my 3ds fits in my pocket?
Stop wearing skinny jeans then. It fits into all my khakis / work pants / normal jeans / jacket pockets / whatever.
Topic: My XL lasts about 4-5 hours of active playing AND about 20 hours of sleep time with wifi off and 2nd highest brightness setting.
It fits, is not comfortable tho....
The original 3ds is thicker than the XL and the main point of discomfort for me regarding my XL is thickness, not width/length. --- Rosewill Challenger | HannsG 21.5" | AMD Phenom II X4 B60 @3.7GHz | Sapphire HD 6850 1GB @875/1075 | 4gb ddr2 667 | Corsair 400w
