I decided to pick one up today at regular price ($169.99). Target stated they would price adjust up to 14 days after purchase so my fingers are crossed. Good thing was they had one in the Black Cosmos color...
Is the 3DS XL really that much better than the 3DS? Large handheld systems always seemed a little counter-intuitive to me.
I've been planning on picking up a new 3DS if I found it at a good price. Thanks OP!
Hands down the 3DS XL. While the 3D effect isn't quite as good, it's much more ergonomic and doesn't give your hands cramps. For my original 3DS, I had to buy a third party grip for it because my hands would start hurting in as little as 5-10 minutes of play. I don't need the grips with the XL and I instantly improved at my games.
Also, DS games are playable again with the XL. DS games looked terrible on the 3DS. It had to scale the image down to fit on the screen and made it a blurry mess. This was resolved on the XL screen and DS games look just like they would on the DS XL.
In short, maybe the XL isn't for everyone, but it's definitely worth the extra money for me.
