    I was thinking of selling my current 2DS so I can buy a new one for CFW :D sooo should I buy a brand new 2DS or a second hand 3DS XL? they are about the same price on our country :D

    3DS XL, but make sure you check the firmware before buying.

    Not when the pixels are just stretched out to fit a bigger scree... They just look blurrier not better.

    I find the XL a lot more immersive, and it fits my hands better. I wouldn't recommend a normal size 3DS/n3DS unless you have little hands and I wouldn't recommend the 2DS unless you're clumsy and tend to drop stuff a lot as it is quite sturdy, or are on a budget.

    I am not living in NA. I am from the Philippines. The price of the 2ds here is around Php 5,000 while a second hand new 3ds xl usually costs php 8000+ :D

    You'll be happier with a 3dsXL. The screen is too small on a 2ds, buttons less quality, less battery life, and won't fit in your pocket.
    It's fine as a second system, but you will feel cheated with it being your primary. I have both models.

    Don't worry about exploitability, almost all new old3ds's are 9.2 or less except the yo-kai 2ds bundle.

    did you ever think about importing? like getting a 3ds from amiami or play-asia? also where in the philippines are you? i would think greenhills would sell those for cheaper than 5.3k.
