    Resolution is the exact same as the DS/DSi.

    To answer your four questions: Yes. [​IMG]

    But you should simply go to a store first and see one for real. I'm sure you'll want to get it then.

    If you have the money and can afford both, I say get the DSi XL and 3DS. Or you can just simply wait for a while for the 3DS to go down in price and wait for better games to come out. ANYWAYS...

    Screen resolution is good, same as the DSi's. Some games they look a TINY bit pixelated, but thats if your nitpicking.

    The Stylus is A LOT better. Hell, even if you don't have an XL, get a pack of the big stylus.

    The price is lower than what it was isn't it? If it's in your range, go for it.

    I think it's worth buying mainly for the fact that with the bigger screens, you get sucked into the game more, has a better battery life than the regular DSi, and the sound/speakers are phenomenal compared to the DSi's.

    Yes, the stylus alone is worth the money. lol.

    I have a DSi & XL. Sometimes I prefer the DSi, sometimes the XL. It's different. In bed, I prefer the DSi.

    I only found two games or so that are not so good at the DSi XL screens. A japanese Sudoku Game and Mr Driller.

    all right this seems like something i really want (good thing theres a stacker game nearby) also a somewhat different question to close a topic, do you have to be a certain rank or only moderators can do it?

    You can close your own threads in the blogs section, that may be what you're thinking of.
