    Um, are you sure the screen is going to be 93 percent larger and not 39 percent?

    Because from the previous scans it seems more like the latter...

    Didn't people say games look weird on the DSi because it has slightly bigger screens? So this one will fix this problem or will games look even weirder?
    I'm planning on buying a DSiXL since I was about to buy a DSi in a few months, and I kinda like the bigger screens, and I'll the my DSL when I'm out.

    I just wish people will find a way to hack the DSiWare soon. >< (I don't work, I can't work, and I don't have a lot of money, so I can't afford to buy games all the time! Plus, retail games here in Israel are pricey as fuck)

    both screens are 4.2 inches (give or take, not completely sure), almost twice as big as the other DS models.

    This is old news by the way. It's also coming to Europe in Q1 2010. It was announced by Nintendo of Europe shortly after the original DSi LL announcement. They're the ones who called it DSi XL as well.

    The Japanese one it called DSi LL, the European and American ones are called DSi XL.

    Apparently in Japan LL has the same meaning as XL has in the rest of the world.

    Nintendo has lost it's creativity naming their consoles.

    Well its supposed to be DSi but bigger for the elderly. They want to keep a name people will know. "oooOO,DSi XL!" or something no one would understand.. especially elderly... "Whats that? The Exraton 2000 i XL..." Bad example but you know what I mean. [​IMG]
