    Hello, I want to buy a 3DS XL and I wanted to know if this version has better display, better 3D effect or if this is exactly the same as the others XL??

    What makes you think it could have a better anything than the others?

    Away from you.
    It's just a new color, nothing more, nothing less.

    The standard 3DSes all have black top halves. This was presumably done to make the 3D effect easier on the eyes. I think the size of the 3DSXL means there's no difference though.

    The TC was referring to the XL's, and if the black XL would be different to the other XL's.

    I know. I was just explaining why he might think it makes a difference to the 3D effect.

    I'm puzzled to why you made that point, as i have the red & blue XL and they're both black inside anyway.

    He has a valid question. Manufacturing processes/components can change over time and screen quality can go up or down because of it.

    ...and if it was different to the other XL's i'm pretty sure it would be advertised as such.

    The more important question is what firmware does it ship with.

    "Attention Nintendo Fans! Our new 3DSxl screens are 5% dimmer and have more washed out colors! Saving $2 per console BOM is worth it to us!"

    I'm not quite sure if you're asking if the XL has better specs compared to the standard 3DS and just made a typo, so...
    a) The 3DSXL is almost the same as a normal 3DS. It's just bigger and the 3D-Notification LED was removed.
    b) There are no differences between a black model and every other color variation out there.

    And yet his point is valid. Remember the PSP-3000 with the ghosting and washed out colours?

    Some review of the first 3DS XL I have read says that the display and the 3D is better in the XL versions than the normal versions so I have curiosity if the the new Black model have a better display than the original XL versions or if it was the same.

    As a 3DS & 3DS XL owner, the 3D effect is better for me on the XL, probably due to the larger screens.
