I'll obviously keep my DS games due to the 3DS having such a poor game lineup. The XL is a great machine with huge screens and amazing battery life, but the 3DS does have better hardware and future support.

Should I sell my XL?


Wait for a 2nd gen 3DS and just save up?

Well, if you're worried about 3DS battery life, there are a couple replacement batteries you can buy from Amazon that reportedly double or triple the 3DS battery life, but they add a bit of bulk to the 3DS.

Right now, I would wait to see what the announcement on 13 sept is, then after that buy one if there is a game you want to play.

Wait until the 13th and then buy it. Before that, buy the 3DS games you want to play on it and then you'll already have them when you have your 3DS.

I don't think you should sell your DSi XL for it. The 3DS is awesome, but so is the DSi XL. The regular DS has an awesome library of games (especially RPG's and visual novels) and the DSi XL is without a doubt the best way to play them.

You buy a new system, but you lose the best way to play some of the best games ever made.
Please excuse me for my poor English.
Thank you.

Yeah, you should do it.There is probably only going to be one or two really good games (mainly Devil Survivor 2) that will come out for the ds, and many great games will eventually come out for the 3ds, over the few already there.
