Do you intend to use it's extra power for anything that would justify the price? This isn't just limited to the exclusive games like that Fire Emblem game or Xenoblade 3D, but to other games that take advantage of the stronger hardware like Pokemon USUM, Hyrule Warriors Legends, and so on.

If you don't really care about lower framerates, or having a built in circle pad pro (very rarely have I ever really wanted to use one for anything that wasn't Quake 2), just go with/stick with a 3DS XL. Similar screen size for a cheaper price if I remember correctly.

It really depends on what you want. Do you like having the latest stuff? Then buy it. Are you going to be playing the exclusive games? Buy it. Want better performance in supported games? Buy it. Play Smash? Buy it (that C-stick really helps). This is probably only a small group of people who would actually want it.

However, this is GBAtemp, so there is one last question that must be asked. Are you going to be using homebrew? Homebrew is way better on a New 3DS since devs take advantage of that extra horsepower. Among other things, emulators run better (notably GBA, SNES, and anything more demanding), some apps are just faster, and you can get more features with a New 3DS (like NTR streaming). If you are really big on homebrew, then definitely invest in a New 3DS.

Homebrew is one of the reasons yes

Just from what I've read it sounds like a N3dsXL is going to be a good fit for you. Myself I do enjoy the better CPU power the N3ds offers. The XL screen some find pixally but I like it myself. Yes its a bit bigger but I find it still a decent size for portability when I take mine with me.

    @The Real Jdbye, Had this one kid at my school who was always fascinated with Rubik cubes.
  • M4x1mumReZ @ M4x1mumReZ:
    They used to look up videos as well as use one of those sites which first you input the pattern on what you are stuck on and it will tell you the instructions on how to solve it.

    The smaller Rubik cubes are easier to solve at first.

    Then it must be difficult then.
  • The Real Jdbye @ The Real Jdbye:
    from what i heard the technique is the same regardless of size so if you know how to solve one size, then you know how to solve them all

    I was only theorizing about whether this was the case.

    3x3 is super easy with an algorithm - have heard it's true for all sizes but never tried bigger

    But really, there's a website that lets you solve it fairly easy.
