  1. Nice! My DSLite died a year ago, I dropped it, and if you have a DSLite you probably know what happened. It’s a nice chance to get a new one. (=


      1. true dat! i only ever use my 3DS for ds games when I’m playing on 2 or 3 pokemon games at once


  2. He probably already has a 3DS. I bought a 3DS at launch last year but that didn’t stop me picking up an XL a couple of months ago to play DS games on after my DS lite died.
    The fact is DS games just don’t look good when played on a 3DS, so it makes perfect sense to pick up an XL to play your DS games with.


    1. The difference isn’t that bad. The games look only slightly less colorful & slightly blurrier. Other than that, they play just fine on the 3DS.


  3. Meh, I already have a 3DS. Besides, I’m done with handhelds for a while :P After a DS Lite, PSP 3000, and now a 3DS, I’m taking a break and playing home console games.
