    When i was at best buy a couple months ago to pick up my n3dsxl, the only thing in the case where 3DSs are normally was a single galaxy edition one.

    I don't think there's sufficient hype levels to worry about that. The online pre-orders never sold out.

    Why wait for an inferior model? I just don't get it.

    It's not really inferior considering that a) most people don't use 3D and b) it looks pretty nice.

    It's lacking features compared to the original which makes it inferior by definition. The price difference is minimal and simply doesn't justify the purchase when you can get an N3DS XL right now, turn the 3D off and get a virtually identical experience.

    You can also get the same experience for $50 cheaper. It is inferior by definition, not in practice.

    noun; a particular place or position.
    You still didn't get those yet? I bought one about 2 weeks ago IIRC.

    $50 off with the removal of 3D, a pretty cool, and different design? I was sold on it when I first saw it and got confirmation the screen sizes with N3DS XL are identical. As someone who only plays Pokemon, this is really good since starting with Sun/Moon, they gave up 3D features. So anyone who wants to also play just those games and don't have a 3DS, can now go for this if they want. If it feels better than the N3DS XL remains to be seen, I have to get if first. On appearance, it sure catches the eye a bit better than N3DS XL, and also its design has advantages over N3DS XL, namely the microSD slot being in a much better place. The camera thing looks a bit wonky, but I'm more into the microSD slot change.

    Not all scalpers are the same. Keep that scalperphobia to yourself or I'll contact the police. :<

    So is this new 2DS XL better than the 3DS XL or the same deal?

    It's the same as the N3DS except for not having 3D, and some think it has a better design. It comes on 11.4, but you can just hack it with ntrboothax or dsiwarehax.

    Pretty Nice Device. Did a Hardmod yesterday on the first one I got in my hands. Pretty nice and "clean" console.

    Oh I see. Is one better than the other?
