Thank you to everyone for the kind words on yesterday's End of Day thought. Again, my apologies for having to keep that information quiet for so long. Now we can all move forward and keep working towards better days. Thanks for the support, my friends. I'll see you in a few, short hours.
I don't think any of us are really all that surprised to see a revision of the 3DS. Nintendo loves to do that sort of thing with their portable hardware. The surprising thing was seeing the announcement come up at a Nintendo Direct, which was just a few days after E3. Regardless of how the Big N announce it, the 3DS XL is heading our way soon.
Unlike the DS Lite to DSi, the 3DS to 3DS XL keeps the same feature set intact. You won't miss out on any new features by now getting the 3DS XL. You'll be skipping out on form-factor changes that supersize just about everything on the system. It may have become less portable, but the visuals are certainly going to look better than ever.
If you're a Nintendo die-hard with plenty of cash to burn, it will probably be pretty hard to ignore the 3DS XL. On the flip-side, many 3DS owners can rest easy knowing that the 3DS XL is just a different way of presenting the same content and features in the current 3DS.
That's why I wanted to ask you guys what your plans are. Are you going to get a 3DS XL? Will you keep your 3DS and add the XL to your collection? Will you trade-in your 3DS for the XL? Did you hold off on a 3DS purchase until something like the 3DS XL came along? Leave a comment and let us know!
