I traded in my original for the XL as soon as it came out and I loved the bigger screens. But it did seem cheap compared to the original.

Last week my XL got stolen so I need to buy a new one. But I am starting to think I might just buy an original one again. For one it has a better colour selection, is a bit more compact so fits onto my pockets unlike the XL and I think the original design is much better.

I did like playing original DS games on a bigger screen in their native resolution rather than the tiny boxes on the original.... but then I am thinking it wasnt all that bad when it was stretched to the 3DSs resolution anyway.

Im just keen to hear other peoples opinions on what the prefer.

Thanks

I am perfectly satisfied with my original 3DS. I dont feel the need to upgrade as it wont provide me with any additional game play value aside from larger screen, but that isnt nearly enough to warrant a 200 dollar purchase on my part.

I traded in my regular 3ds for an XL a couple months ago. I was finally able to play RE Revelations and actually see what I was aiming at. That little bit of extra screen I found to be a great help to me. Personally I think they could have gone even bigger.

I've stated this on the other thread, but I'll only upgrade if there are special edition bundles. Charizard XL?!? Instant buy for me.

I do, although I have nothing against the XL.

Everyone on this board seems to have civil wars arguing that XL is "required" to play 3DS games.

I like the original so much I might get the FE Bundle.

I wish that bundle was coming to New Zealand, but unfortunately not =(

3DS XL is good if you have big hands, original is better if you have smaller hands. Mine are small so I prefer the regular 3DS especially since there's no way I could play Kid Icarus on the XL

I like that it's matte, I seriously hate gloss on anything that isn't a screen.

The DSi had a sexy matte finish that I loved.

I hate the 2 NA colors though.

I do. Honestly, I won't upgrade until another revision is out.

We have 3 here Red Blue and Silver, but still no good... I did see we had the white one over xmas but it was only for limited time... I dont know if white would be any good coz it would start to discolour i reckon
