Recently I got Phantom Hourglass and Spirit Tracks, so I pulled out my old original DS, and I was kind of shocked by how bad the DS is compared to the newer ones. I don't own them, but I have tried a DS Lite and DSi before, and I don't remember it being so bad, but the screens on the original DS seem so small and dark.

I figured if I'm going to upgrade, I might as well get a 3DS, and I definitely want an XL. My question is how will those games look on the 3DS XL? I do know about the native resolution mode.

I can't see much difference here, is that the native resolution mode?

If you're buying a video game for it's graphics, there's something wrong with you.
