I was wondering if I should get the original 3DS or the New 3DS/XL but I was wondering, is it possible to get Twilight Menu on the NEW 3DS or if that was only possible on the older units? Thanks in advance!

EDIT: Big thank you to everyone who helped I have no further questions!

You can get Twilight menu on both system, In fact I own N3DS XL with Twilight menu. It works flawlessly.

Also, New 3DS is way much better, not only because it has C-stick and NFC module by default, New 3DS has more powerful CPU and larger RAM. so I suggest you to buy New 3DS if your budget allows it.

Thanks a bunch, I wanted the N3DSXL more than the original anyway because of the features i adds, I just wasn't sure whether you couldd install Twilight menu thanks for clearing that up also may I ask does the N3DXL us a micro SD or standard?

GB for example a 32GB micro SD, I was wondering what size I should get because the DSi was a recomended 2-4GB as anymore caused issues so I was wondering if it was the same case withthe N3DSXL?
IIRC You can even use 128GB, but you have to format it to FAT32, not exFAT. so You need an external tool for that. other than that, It's up to you. but 128 would be overkill, 32GB would be enough. I use 8GB as I don't play lots of games but still I could fit some small games into it.

EDIT: nvm, seems like You guys use a lot more storage than I do

    I'd say there would be more PS5 exclusives...if people could actually buy PS5s.

    I mean, if no-one can buy a PS5, and thus is stuck with PS4 (Pros), then companies would still see some profit from developing PS4 games with PS5 upgrades; meanwhile, if they developed a PS5 game, then everyone who can't get that console won't buy that game, especially at launch.

    Nah every console starts early with low libraries

    well theyre churning them out as fast as they possibly can, not like Xbox or PC are faring much better with the chip shortages

  • Xzi @ Xzi:
    and games still take 4-6 years to develop regardless, so its not like sony can conjure up new exclusives out of thin air

    Makes me wonder what they have now and are actually hiding from the public

    I hope in the next 5 years they can move on to even more realistic skin renders and not just make characters look like Shiney clay molds
