    Yes, it's one of these "this or this?" -topics [​IMG]
    Well, I am thinking to get DSi or DSi XL in this week, and I am not sure which one I should get [​IMG]
    The price is not problem, because both are 199€ here [​IMG]

    Well if they're the same price, go with XL...Correct me if I'm wrong, but they have the same software running them, so you can still use the same cards without a problem, so might as well get the bigger screen.

    I went with the DSi even though the XL would have been released a couple months later. My hands are rather small so the DSi XL wouldn't have been a good choice as the DS Phat hurt when I held it.

    I own a DSI but have seen an XL. Depending on what your preferences are you could go with either, the one problem I had with the DSI was the Matt finish, I prefer the glossy finish of the xl but that's just my opinion.

    Get the DSi XL. You'll love the bigger screens, and it has a longer battery life. And if you don't like the current colors, wait for the newer colors coming up soon.

    the xl has a much bigger screen, for such a small price increase i would definitely go for the extra screen size.

    It depends what your preferences are. I have a DSi and love it, but I have also used an XL before. I personally didn't like the XL as much as the DSi since it just felt too large for me, and not portable enough.

    IF they're the same price, just get the XL. You'll find the bigger screens really nice and it's still quite portable from my experience. Ideal for watching videos.

    If I were you I´ll wait for the E3 (which is in 5 days [​IMG] and the 3DS is gonna be shown), after that, I would decide whether to be patient and wait for the 3DS or buy an DSiXL.

    Personally i would pick the Dsi. The XL looks really bad imo. But the bigger screens and battery life are tempting.

    Dsi original is mire portable, XL is like holding the entire wii console whereever you go.
