Hey guys!
The time has come. I finally got enough funds to buy myself a NEW console :)
I was completely decided I will go for XL however now..out of thin air I got an idea, should I buy a normal New 3ds instead?

What do you guys think?
I cannot decide ><

I currently own original 3ds, so whichever I take will be superior to it but...damn DECISIONS

I already owned the original 3DS XL and I'm glad I kept it that way. But it depends on how you want to use the device. I never take the 3DS to the university or something. So if you always play in the metro, a normal N3DS might be better. But if you play at home, I suggest buying the N3DS XL.

The N3DS already has a slighly larger screen, so depending on how you're gonna use it, decide.

It depends on the games you play. If you love monster hunter then N3dsXL will be much better.

New Nintendo 3DS XL
* screens are simply more immersive
* feel-in-the-hand is down to your preference
* size is down to your preference
* 3D effect was no better to me
* sound was no better to me (they seem to be using the same speakers, to my ears)

New Nintendo 3DS
* matte, not gloss
* exchangeable faceplates
* smaller, less immersive screens
* smaller size

I have a strong preference for superficial things like a matte classy white console so I went for a white regular New 3DS. I absolutely cannot stand gloss surfaces. I find it amusing (and deceptive) when Nintendo call their grey XL unit "Metallic Black".

The fingerprints on the XL are killing me.

    Yeah June was horrible like 42c the entire week

    @Veho, Lol. If his screen lock used a password like that, then the shooter has garbage OPSEC of hiding what he has.
  • K3Nv2 @ K3Nv2:
    Turns out devices aren't as secure as we think and they're controlled by the government
  • K3Nv2 @ K3Nv2:
    "hacked by the government"
  • Veho @ Veho:
    "Hello Google can you give me all his info" "Sure thing, just don't tell anyone it was me. Say you hacked him or something."
  • NinStar @ NinStar:
    the best way to make something hack-proof is to destroy it
  • Veho @ Veho:
    Sylver, wacko mass shooters don't have "opsec". Half of them announce what they're gonna do in advance. They publish manifestos.
