I like my 3ds, it's purple and I don't need it to be XL. I got mine free and it plays 3ds games, who cares if there is an upgraded form of the system now... it's a waste of money if you already have a 3ds to begin with. If you don't, and you have to pay for the system, then the XL would probably be a better choice just because a bigger screen would be nice. It's not really that big of a deal though
Besides the bigger screens, and that my hands are a little big for the plain 3DS, I don't mind not having an XL. If I could trade my 3DS for a XL one, no extra charge (or, at least, for a bargain), I would for sure.
If this world was noob free; than nobody could laugh at least once!
You are, it's just the folk who bought the XL's are compensating for things and they try to insult you for having a smaller anything to make up for that you clearly don't need to compensate for anything.
The XL is great and the only flaw it has is weaker system sound. Everything is perfect and coming from someone who is use to HD Gaming on a 46" TV even the XL screen seems too small sometimes. I'm definitly one of those "bigger is better" type people when it comes to my gaming. And I would seriously question anyone who would choose a regular 3ds versus an XL if they were buying a 3DS for the first time. But TC to each is own and the regular 3ds has a lot od really cool colors and other advantages, I just happen to only care about screen size and I get the feeling I'm not alone on this.
