I have an old GBA SP as well, so I could buy the original carts, but I heard about the Oracle games coming to the 3DS. So I'm thinking about picking up a used 3DS for the convenience of re-buying some of those old games without having to track down a genuine, good condition cart at a decent price. Plus I could grab some DS games I used to have as well as complications (like the MMZ collection).*
Now the question is: should I get an original 3DS or an XL? I've heard some arguments for both, but I'd like to hear what your opinions are. Just in case it comes up, I have average size hands. Also, probably wouldn't play it for more than five hours away from an outlet since I go to college and workout between long breaks in classes.
*I used to have a black and red DS Lite and some games, but I had to sell them a couple years ago when my wife and I needed money.

There really is no reason not to get the XL unless price is an issue for you.
The screen I find is better, its much more comfortable to hold, the battery life is better etc
The only time I'd say go for the original is if you find a real bargain that isn't worth passing up on

XL for sure. Unless you're a very, very small person.

You'll be waiting years for the games to show up. May as well just buy the old carts at this point.
At this point, a 3DS XL.

This question AGAIN?
...And look, the same results. Again.
DLC, online passes and the rise of casual budget gaming have ruined the video game industry.
