Man, that's tempting. Sadly, I don't need another system (my DS Lite doesn't get enough love as is) and I've heard the 3DS XL is worth the price of the upgrade. Still... that's tempting.

Just bought the xl a couple of weeks ago. It is so much nicer than the standard 3ds.

Great deal.. comes out to be $89 for a 3DS if you subtract the game values (each $40).

At this point though I dont see why anyone gets 3DS, XL is the way to go.

Damnit. I just bought a purple 3ds a few weeks ago from Best buy. Oh well, I already have a 3DS backlog anyway, guess it was best I didn't get this.

What's the consensus on whether to expect a hardware revision in the near future with the second analog stick built in?

Nintendo has come out on record and said they are happy with the current design. I wouldnt expect a redesign for at least a few years if ever.

They wont re-release it with dual sticks because that would split the userbase/games. Nintendo and others do a great job with making all of their games play perfectly without the second stick.. its not needed, but if you want it just buy the addon for 19.99$. There are very few games that support it anyways.

If they did release a redesign, they'd also have to add two more usable trigger buttons, which almost everyone forgets about.

Anyone on the fence should definitely pick this up! I have both a 3DS and 3DSXL. They both have their pros and cons, but both of mine get plenty of use. This is great deal and that purple color is awesome.

I agree with you. I own both a standard and an XL and to me both are flawed so it's silly to say the XL is that much better. It would be like someone trying to convince me that a 10" tablet is better then a 7" or a 17" laptop is better then a 13". Certainly there are reasons to go bigger but not just because it's "bigger".

I like the smaller design because it is.... smaller. To me the quality of the screens isn't night and day like others have mentioned and the both only... have... one... joystick.

Also the standard XL's are FUGLY (color scheme).

I don't mind the original. I just had problems playing for more then an hour as my hand would cramp up during Luigi's Mansion or Monster Hunter. I just find the XL more comfortable when playing for long durations and the viewing angle to see the 3D is 100 times better. Otherwise the original is the way to go if you don't play for long periods of time.
