3DS XL Announced
Yesterday, a new edition of the 3DS was announced. The 3DS XL is scheduled to be released during sometime in mid august (august 19th) in the U.S. for around $200, with a simultaneous release for New Super Mario Bros. 2 for digital download. Compared to the original system, the 3DS XL as a whole is bigger, has a longer lasting battery as well as larger screens, 90% larger than the original 3DS to be exact.
As awesome as it would be to snag one of these XLs, I just got a 3DS this past Christmas, which still works just fine. Hell it’s practically brand new, so other than having a 3DS with larger screens and a slightly longer battery, there’s no reason as to why I would go out and get one. I like the size of the original 3DS and getting a larger one would make holding it in my pocket more trouble than it’ll be worth. Although considering that it’s $200 for the new system, a price that’s still cheaper than the PS Vita, anyone looking to get one would still be getting a good deal for their money, but if anyone is looking for convienence along with their system, then the original 3DS goes for just $170 or so now.
