The 3DS was doing just fine in sales after they decided to drop the price of the system. There was really no point for them to create the 3DS XL when the original 3DS was still selling well among consumers. The 3DS XL is just an unnecessary revision when the original 3DS is so much better in terms of size and price.

They wanted a deluxe version.

Bigger/Better screen.
Longer battery life
More comfortable to hold

It's better in every way, this is coming from someone who has both. I have never heard of anyone wanting to go back. I know a few of my friends caved in and got one once they seen Fire Emblem/Monster Hunter on it.

I went back. I couldn't handle the extra jaggies and the more muted color palette.

I personally don't like it, but I'm not going to be silly and claim that it's pointless. Plenty of other people like it.

what's really pointless is that there is no NES classic edition version :(
