What's up with that "LL" thing?

I saw it, not sure if in "3DS LL" or "3DS XL LL" name, but... what does it even mean?

XL is what it is called in the west, and LL is what it is called in Japan.

Sure sign you are a nerd: The beginning of AC/DCs "Thunderstruck" always makes you think of Lion-O swinging his sword around.

Just for further clarification, it was explained to me at one point as being how Japan says XL. They use LL as sort of "larger than large" instead of XL which we use as "extra large".

Shouldn't it be 3DS rr?


You mean "couldn't it be the 3DS rr", and the answer is yes.

The L and R are kinda interchangeable, listen to announcers in fighting games for examples. "Lyu" instead of Ryu, "Ioli" instead of Iori, "VICTOLY" in Samurai Shodown, and "Congraturation" in just about every game ever made.

The idea that Japanese people can't say Ls is absurd.

L is pronounced "eru", R is pronounced "aaru", so they're not interchangeable, and the answer would be no.

There's no point telling stupid people that they're stupid. They're too stupid to know that they're stupid. Wasted effort.

What Kiku said. The English letters L and R are distinct for them. The issue occurs when using the R-sound kana.
