    Well I'm buying a 3ds xl from someone
    I would suggest buying a 3ds xl because it would probably be cheaper then the new 3ds and the xl is bigger

    Please, do yourself a favor and wait for the n3DS (XL). I have got one in Saturday and it is so much better, especially if you care about 3D! Not to mention, you can play n3DS exclusives when they come out.

    Really all depends it a tough one to call larger screen vs newer hardware and features...but I probably have to go with the New 3DS on this one simply because you should have already made up your mind a couple weeks ago on a 3DS XL for Boxing week sales.

    Wait for the New 3ds bro or u will have buyers remorse when the new 3ds comes out in a couple months or whenever

    edit: and if you cant wait and want one now buy a second hand normal 3ds or 2ds on ebay or something to keep you busy

    In the mean time while you're waiting look for some deals on the 3DS XL if prefer a bigger screen over enhanced New 3DS games and maybe about a handful of exclusives.

    Boxing week had 3DS XL going for $100 if there's a clearance sale for 3DS XL's from now until the New 3DS arrives in Canada you have the option to reconsider: Amazon, Walmart, BestBuy/FutureShop, Staples and Shoppers Drug Mart are you best bet on 3DS XL clearance sales.

    Really depends...for someone like me who can who appreciate the faster hardware, c-stick, enhanced games and exclusives games then yes the New 3DS is a must wait.

    In all honesty if had no choice but to pick between the 3DS XL and New 3DS I would go with the older bigger screen given I can get it on sale at a bargain price but if the the price of an old 3DS XL is the same as a smaller New 3DS I'd go with the latter.

    Nothing to do with price for me. The screen size improves the experience and immersion IMO.
