3DS XL Worth A Purchase?

#1Ducky_From_MarsPosted 10/4/2013 12:08:22 AM
I was just wondering what the pros and cons of the 3DS XL were, when compared to the OG 3DS. In your opinion, is it worth the extra cash?

The only game I have interest in at the moment is Pokemon Y, but I'm open minded to other games.

The XL screen is larger than 3ds, and its quality is quite good, 3d effect also better than regular 3ds in my opinion; but the XL speaker quality have no match to the 3ds.

If you don't have the original, yes.

It is even if you do. But I guess opinions vary.

At that point you're talking about a $370 3DS. For ambassadors you're talking about a $450 3DS. I personally don't think its worth upgrading. If something happened to my 3DS I would probably replace it with an XL, but it doesn't seem worth it to upgrade IMO.

This. If you want to upgrade from a 3DS to the XL then go right ahead. But you don't have to unless something happens to your 3ds or you give your 3ds to a family member.

I have an XL and it is my first 3ds. I don't plan on upgrading if a new model is released just like I didn't upgrade when I had a DS lite.

I got the special XY 3DS XL, and aside from the speaker quality I like it a lot more than my launch 3DS. The large screen looks great with most of the games I've played. (Though DS games are kinda iffy if they're sprite based but eh)

I really like it a lot more than I thought I would.

You know someone stupid enough to buy a used 3DS for $250? Because you know the ambassador is doing a system transfer. You aren't making your money back upgrading and you know it.

Why would you expect to trade in for the full value ever? (Though that may be your exact point, but if you're changing your console for a new one that is a given.)
