>New 3DS is announced
>everybody saying they're gonna choose the XL because its superior in every way except cover plates
>announcement that USA will only get the XL not the standard size
>suddenly nobody wants the XL anymore, only the standard
What did I miss, is there something wrong with the XL?
You were just hearing whatever you wanted because, obliviously, you're going for the XL.
Now that the people who wanted a regular are being vocal you can't just ignore them anymore.
I imported mine. Hell if I'll be playing on the obese/'Murican model.
Can people actually tell what the fuck they're doing on a regular-sized N3DS? My vision isn't spectacular but goddamn, even on an OG XL, playing Sm4sh fucked up with my eyesight hardcore. It must be horrible for your vision to concentrate on those tiny models and keep up with the movements for so long
It's because the people that were going to get the XL are content. All the people that weren't going to get it are upset and now vocal.
Not even. I'm a fucking manlet and the XL fits in my hands perfects.
>mfw original 3DSs are now region free
thanks for serving as masquerade, XL fatasses and Newbabbies.
I have a regular 3ds, and have used my friend's 3ds XL plenty of times.
The regular size just feels better for me, and Monster Hunter 3U and other games looked way better on the smaller screen
because increasing screen size + staying the same resolution =/= better graphics
I also like the design of the 3DS, the 3DS XL is great too, but not worth an upgrade.
So then I heard Japan announced both NN3DS and NN3DSXL
The regular NN3DS had a slightly slimmer design and looks less blocky, and changeable faceplates?
fuck yea I wanted to hop on that fucking train
and all around it looks aesthetically pleasing
fuck Nintendo of America
they're fucking faggot queers
I was considering importing an EU version as I heard you can use US Bank Cards with the EU Eshop, but I will have to pay
$50 for new releases at game.co.uk, which is a lot better than the EU Eshop that converts everything to $60 USD
I'm really not. I had 20/20 vision throughout my entire childhood until about 20 and it only got a little worse. I don't wear glasses or contacts or any vision-enhancer in any way. I have a slight astigmatism but that's about it.
The only thing I hate about the XLs is how much worse it makes the system's low resolution look, you wouldn't think ~30% bigger pixels is much but it makes a huge difference unless you're fucking blind and games look crisper/sharper on a decade old PSP screen than a brand new 3DSXL.
I was sure as hell not gonna upgrade from my OG Cosmo Black 3DS to another manlet version, I'm glad if one of them had to be taken out because of our stupidity it was the small one.
Bigger screen is much better, whoever complains about low PPI on such a shit screen on a Nintendo device after all these years needs to just go ahead and move to mobile games.
I have a 3DS XL and wanted to get something slightly smaller. The regular N3DS was perfect and came with the bonus of having face plates, which is nice since the N3DS XL will most likely have a small pool of garbage colors/designs like the XL.
This is why. Realistically the size difference is pretty small. I'd be willing to downsize a bit to get swappable faceplates.
>headphone jack in the smack middle
>cartridge in the bottom right where you right your thumbs
I don't give a fuck about faster processing power since no games will use it other than Xenoblade 3D and I've played the Wii version already. How can people defend this
3DS XL feels too heavy. Or maybe its just the way the weight is distributed. The top half feels extra heavy and puts a lot of strain on my wrists. Is the N3DS XL noticeably lighter?
Really wanted a standard N3DS for lighter weight and better portability.
it's sunken into the console and takes force to push in. 0/10
>headphone in the middle
best place for it, doesn't get in the way
the only thing you can complain about is the stylus which I really wish was on the right
