I just got my DSi XL yesterday and today I played it, ITS AWESOME..its not bulky at all. I think the ones that were complaining about the size were going from dsi to dsi xl, I went from ds lite to dsi xl..its just AWESOME and the AceKard works perfectly..just popped it in and I was good to go..its worth it!
i spose it depends how much you want to use the shopping channel and how badly you need bigger screens, if your ds lite is past it days an upgrade wouldnt be bad idea. i wouldnt go out my way personaly to upgrade since theres a new ds comeing out within a year, and will likely be under £200
Ultimately the decision is yours to make. I went from a DSI to an XL Yesterday and the difference in tremendous. I enjoy the wider screens and it does make some games look better.
For me it's a great improvement since I dont have to have the unit right in front of my face. The pen sized stylus is also really comfortable to hold and easy to write with and use without your hand cramping.
It was worth it to my discerning gamer buddy and it was worth it to this old bugger.
I went for the EB games 90 dollar trade in for my perfectly fine black bottom crimson top DSl and picked up a bronze DSi XL and I have an Ackard 2i waiting to get fired up.
Going to let my local lass friend who has a DSL have my R4DS Revolution. She only has the DSl as her ex bought it for her. She's not hard core about the thing, so being able to only play the last few thousand games is not important to her
Looking forward to enjoying not needing to squint so darn much at the smaller screened DSl.
Hey some of us think bigger is better eh. I don't have a 5 year old's hand size either.
