I think, given the widely positive reports of the XL version, that most people just don't care about the 3D effect and mostly play with it off. It's not a downside to those people, but if you value it, go with the screen that works for you. I don't own either system, and I could tell from the display unit the 3D effect was worse on the XL, despite what everyone says online.
First time I hear someone saying the 3D effects are worse on the XL. They're marginally the same, but I see them better on the XL.
They are not worse on the xl,anybody who knows anything about 3d technology knows that the bigger the screen the better the 3d,not to mention the sweetspot on the 3d is greater on the x.l I also have owned both TC needs to get his eyes or his xl checked out.
The 3D isn't perfect on either system if your foreground object and background contrast a lot in brightness. I find it's easier to ignore if you reduce the screen brightness, but sometimes there's just no way to eliminate it. I wish the developers would consider this when they go and put a bright white object in front of a really dark background, because that's usually the most annoying. I really haven't noticed any difference in this regard between using a regular 3DS and an XL though. Maybe there's something wrong with your XL if it seems to be that much worse than a regular 3DS.
^Exactly! The only reason people post topics like this is to try stir up some pointless argument/disucssion explanation...nobody needs or wants to hear this instead which game has spent the most time inside ur 3ds or xl ? Ugh.
theres actually no diff between the xl and the 3ds for the 3ds effect but tbh i find the xl kinda like a psp phat.. kinda too bulky to carry around..i aprreciate the increased screen size but not the increased weight :/
and i mostly play in 2d.. tbh theres not really alot of games that really makes you wanna use the 3d
