Re: Yet another 3DS model announced - the NEW 3DS

Not sure if I said on here yet, but I picked up NSMB2 from the Nintendo Club and have been playing it on the New 3DS and I'm loving both the system and the game. I don't regret dropping a $100 for the upgrade. Just picked up Majora's Mask yesterday and should be able to dig into it over my upcoming vacation.

Got my New 3DS XL yesterday - did the system transfer from my old original 3DS without issue.

The 3D is markedly improved as many have noted.

So, I only picked up a DSiXL after the 3DS was released and have a handful of titles. I haven't played it much but know I enjoyed the circle pad on the 3DS much better. I haven't tried all of my library on the NEW 3DS XL, but is there any reason to hang onto the DSi? I feel like I could help mitigate the cost of the new guy - but only if there really isn't an advantage to using original hardware.

Well DS games are upscaled on a 3ds ( the 3DS has a higher pixel density) so DS games look a bit more blurry on a 3DS screen. You can however hold start and select when you boot up a DS game on the 3DS and play it in the native resolution but at the cost of screen size. Playing a DS game in native resolution on a 3DSXlL makes the used screen size about the same size as a regular DS.
