    Here is a message i sent to the news staff on the first of December

    "Have you heard the news from IGN? Nintendo is discontinuing the XL/LL in Japan. I heard rumors (unconfirmed rumors) Nintendo considers the NEW 3DS situation to be equal to the Game Boy Color one and may stop making normal/original 3ds games. This discontinuing now of one of the old models makes me wonder: "did the NA and Euro regions not get the NEW 3DS yet because Nintendo is trying to use up the old 3DS parts?"

    To be honest, the "new" 3DS could've been easily avoided. The 3DS was doing fine and this thing with more buttons and ability to scan statues shows up.

    The name? Heh. No comment.

    But us Americans love our XLs. We ain't takin no baby sizes, we won't stand for this!

    I mean, standing is pretty hard anyway, but still.

    This validates my decision to hold off on buying a 3DS so fucking much.

    I agree to but they probably will discontinue all normal 3DS models after the new 3DS comes state side
