    Considering the DSi XL has pre-loaded software, enlarged hardware for a better touch experience, or those with larger hands, and has a nice stylus pen, I think $20 is a fair trade-off.

    Course, I won't be buying one since I already have a DSi, but choice is king.

    Seems like a reasonable price tag. It definitely ain't a PSP No by any means.

    Hopefully I can wrack up some cash and buy this eventually. My old DS Phat sorta broke and I've been looking for a new DS.

    Side note, do DSi flashcarts work on the XL?

    It's been confirmed on this forum that they work on the japanese one, at least.


    EDIT: And I'm not that interested because unless a lot of the weight/space added is used for the battery... meh.

    I will probably buy the DSi XL sometime this year or if I'll be in Canada this Year.

    It seems every year, Im buying DS. In 2008, I bought 2 DS Lite. in 2009, I bought 3 DSi. In 2010, I want to buy a DSi XL. in 2011, I'll be buying the DS2, if possible

    I hope flashcarts work on the US dsixl. That will be my deciding factor on whether or not I should get it. I love the big screens!

    Remember the DSi when launched. when it reached the USA, it got a firmware upgrade. So expect a firmware upgrade this coming March 28

    All DSi compatible carts already work on the XL, no biggie. And aren't you all making a big deal about this? It's been £10 more than the DSi for pre-order for ages

    Does it also have a better view-angle? Because if it sucks as much as with the DS Lite (don't know how it's on DSi to be honest) then bigger screens won't do that much good for this purpose.

    To anyone who owns the LL: where does the pen go? Does it stick out of the side, or is it loose? Did they manage to fit that gigantic thing inside the unit?

    ps: pics are good. [​IMG]

    edit: nevermind. I just wikipedia-d. There are two. one a little bigger than the normal DSi and the huge one that does not fit in the slot.

    Haven't we cleared this up yet?

    The DSi XL has larger pixels (physically) and that's how Nintendo made it bigger. Whereas if Nintendo made the pixels the same size as the DSi and just added extra pixels, then it'd be pixelated and ugly.
    Nintendo makes the pixels themselves larger to prevent games from becoming pixelated.
