So yeah, it's my birthday this week, so I finally decided to get a 3DS. Problem is, I've gotten so much mixed information about the XL and if it's worth it or not. I'm leaning towards the vanilla 3DS for now, but I just wanted to know if the XL's increased battery life is worth it.

Oh, and I'd also appreciate suggestions on my first game(s) for it. I was thinking of getting either Fire Emblem or Project X Zone, but I'm open for all other suggestions as well. I love RPGs if that helps at all.

I have the red 3DS XL and about 15 games, including Project X Zone.

I originally had a black 3DS that I got on launch day and I have to say that the XL is a big upgrade and fully recommend it over the original model.

The increased battery life is nice, and the screens are awesome. The sound quality is a not as good as the original model though, but it's not enough of a difference to really bother me.

As for games, I would highly recommend these three here: Kid Icarus, Luigi's Mansion 2, Super Mario 3D Land.

Ice white 3DS :- can be mistaken for a mobile phone. And looks pleasing to play anywhere. So avoids unwanted attention ! Just my Personal opinion !

XL is nice, but so is white.

Dammit, Nintendo.
For those players who don't speak Australian, we have provided an English translation of the previous scene. Do you want to replay the scene?

If a person mistakes an ice white 3ds for a cell phone, then they're pretty stupid.

Thanks guys, I guess I'll go with a XL, unless I decide to get several games instead.

But honestly, I'm kind of surprised at the results. Almost every 3DS owner I know has told me that the XL version doesn't offer enough for the price.

I voted XL.

Get the color YOU prefer.

I thought an All Black XL was available in Europe?
