Thinking about upgrading. The standard 3DS makes DS games look pretty bad unless you hold Select + Start to make the image smaller. How is it on the 3DS XL?

It's exactly the same thing.

DS games look fine on a regular 3DS or an XL.

I never run them at the native resolution by pressing select or start.

I primarily play my DS games on my XL.

So they still don't look as sharp as on a normal DS eh? As long as it doesn't get worse on the XL than it already is on the 3DS, then that's fine, I guess. Thought that the bigger screens would stretch the image even worse.

as long as it keeps the aspect ratio i couldn't care less. when people play emulators they stretch the heck out of the image. bigger = better even if it's a slight loss in quality. but if the aspect ratio is left in tact it still looks good to me.

It takes a little bit to get used to if you play ds games on regular 3ds.

I played DQXI on my 3ds and it was kind of hard to read and a little blurrier. However, when I played 4 heroes of light, everything seemed fine.

????

Maybe its a rare occurrence but it might just depend on the game.

That's generally a completely different scenario. Emulators actually render the games at a higher resolution, essentially giving them a higher native resolution, whereas backward compatible consoles just upscale the original low resolution output to fit the screen. Obviously the former looks far better than the latter.

I'm sure you could point out faults but I play DS games on the 3DS XL a lot. It doesn't bother me. It's not like playing Mario Party 1 on a big LCD tv. That takes getting used to lol

DQXI doesn't even exist yet!
