    I bought my 3DS XL in 2013 and it's still in good working order but with each features that Nintendo keeps adding, it feels like my 3DS is taking a little longer to get started and load games from the home screen. Even buying a Sandisk Ultra class 10 32gb SD card hasn't really made much difference.

    So I'm looking into the New 3DS XL and the whole "stable 3D" and extra control stick hasn't made me jump on it when it launched but can anyone confirm if the new 3DS is much faster in booting up stuff or if I should just hold onto my 3DS XL and wait for the New 3DS XL to price drop.

    IMO, the fact that the N3DS have very stable 3D should be enough to convince you. But if not, I can tell you that it is faster at loading menu, miiverse etc,...

    Don't get one, most games run at O3DS clock speed.

    Faster load times, 3D that actually works, built in c-stick, New 3DS exlusive titles, and no lag in games. If you can get on do it if not get a 3DS XL and use rxTools if you want to look for an exploitable N3DS use this thread http://gbatemp.net/threads/n3ds-xl-firmware-by-version-number.381479/

    HANS can run those games at N3DS clock speeds so this is not accurate anymore.
