    I don't know if it's the viewing angle, but I'm tempted to buy one now.

    The world that never was
    I am tempted after the "better 3D" part.... But I am short on money and I don't think I want to buy another device so soon. Gonna focus on games!

    TC just gave me more reason to buy a 3DSXL! I have big hands and poor eyesight so this is a seller for me. Plus my 3DS screen has a scratch I can't bear to see...

    Rounded pixels? To reduce jaggies?

    I wasn't particularly interested in the 3DS but this... this looks nice.

    I want to know how I can upgrade without spending $200 and THEN selling my old 3DS. Because you know, I kind of want to keep all of my stuff.
    Has there been any news regarding trading in or system transferring?

    Edit: like if gamestop were to have a "trade in your 3ds, get 3dsxl for x amount of money"

    The better viewing angle makes it tempting... but it's just so huge and I don't have any money for it anyway.

    Wow " The XL is an upgrade on the 3DS from almost every single point." Take that, people who said it's just the screen size.

    Good to hear positive impressions, although I really hope the volume is boosted.

    He could be lying. I'm sick of unofficial statements, if I see official statements claiming this, then I'll take this seriously.

    Maybe my poor English fail here, but I understand the same from the four affirmations above.

    The size of top screen is almost the same of the Vita's screen right? This is both bad and good, I have a Vita and I love it inside my house, but I hate cary it with me.

    Looks better than I thought. Glad I waited to jump on board the 3DS train... there's no use in getting a system before it has a decent backlog. Definitely a day one purchase!
