No idea if this is known by now but I figured it's worth sharing anyway. Do you recall this? The infamous "scanlines" found in all 3DS devices when 3D is turned off. The regular 2DS doesn't have this because it uses a single non-3D LCD. I thought the 2DS XL screen would be the same since it lacks 3D, but according to that review it actually uses the same screen found in the 3DS XL, meaning its resolution is 800x240 and not 400x240 and the "scanlines" are present. The 2DS XL screen isn't supposed to have a parallax barrier, yet it looks exactly like the 3DS XL screen when the 3D slider is slid all the way to the bottom. Maybe the 2DS XL is capable of showing 3D but is forced off via software. In any case, don't know about you, but for me it's a deal breaker since I can't stand looking at the scanlines.
