    Hey DSi XL owners, how's the display look? I know it is the same resolution, but at nearly twice the physical size, do graphics look blurry or significantly less sharp? Thanks in advance.

    It looks normal, unless your face is 1 to 1 1/2 inches from the screen.

    It looks very similar to the DSi. Very little "pixelation".

    Thought someone already said something about the pixel res question about a year ago with the japanese DSi LL.

    The screen is fine, no problems so far. No longer need to place the DS close to my face and can now just leave it on table and play.

    Looks fine for the most part. But Order of Eccelsia looks a little weird, that's just me coming from a DS Lite directly to the XL. I popped in Final Fantasy 3 last night and 3D stuff looks fine.

    I am sure anything is better than Phat DS Screen....especially when its brightness dies out over time.

    The XL screen looks great, I try to see pixelation but I can't see any ( and I'm not blind ).
    I even tried some emulators ( like ZXDS spectrum emulator ) and even though those 8-bit machines didn't have any antialiasing, they looked just as good as on the DSL, if not better ( I say better, hands down ).
    I know on paper a pixel almost twice as big is a little scary, but in reality with lots of colours and antialiasing it looks as good as it gets.

    The DSi XL looks awesome. I was really shocked to play on a DS Lite again. It looked so small.

    What crap are you smoking, dave. The USA always gets the system a year later than the Japanese.

    I got the DSi LL almost a year now.

    Apparently once you have an XL you will be physically unable to get back to the smaller screens. You people got me all excited. Damn this online store that sent my RESERVED XL to someone else. I had to order someone else, for 30 euros more.

    Getting it today though, once I get home from work I'll tell you guys about it. I may make pictures too if that helps [​IMG]

    Actually you can. I'm playing advance wars ATM.

    Only problem is you go "damn, that thing's small!" all the time which takes you mind off the game for a second and then you get pummelled by the opponent long range weapons. [​IMG]

    Advance Wars... I approve =)

    The Xl looks interesting, and I would get one if not for the lack of the GBA slot still... I like having it. Then I can NDS-GBA link my pokemans! Not the the DSi/XL though >_>
