Nintendo 3DS XL: What do you want to know?

Postby toaplan » 03 Jul 2012, 15:39

Is the 3D still more or less the same "looking at the world through a window"-effect? Are the 3DS graphics too low-res for the much bigger screen? Is the touch screen more responsive?

Along the same lines as the previous post, when I had a DSi XL the graphics were defo more pixelated and not as sharp as the small screen, how do they look here???? :?
I hope the likes of Pilotwings gets more 'life' given the far more generous screen size!!!!
Worse case scenario the graphics will be worse for wear.....which is it please do tell us cvg???
Also as before is the 3d better/worse/the same I'm hoping the bigger screen means the 'sweet spot' will not be such a problem. :mrgreen:

All the above concerning the 3D

Plus
How do DS games look on it, have they sorted the smallness / stretched issues that the original 3DS has?
How do DS games compare to the DSi XL?

Why didn't you incorporate a 2nd nub and then announce a Control Pad Pro for it?


Don't tell me, Nintendo. I'll field that one.

How does sprite based games like pokemon looks like on the XL? Because the 3DS has a higher resolution than the DSi XL they still differ if they use the entire screen completely. Previous news said that 3DS games still looks good on the XL even though it has the same res as the regular 3DS so I'm also wondering if there's not much of a difference in regards to sprites. Maybe for DS games it's quite alright because the 3DS applies some sort of filtering to them but I'm still very curious.

I noticed the hinge on the original 3DS was a bit... well, crap. It felt cheap and sometimes wobbled. How is the general build quality of the machine, and more specifically the hinge?

Screen for me too.
I don't mind that it's the size of a laptop, I chuck my 3DS in my bag with my Vita anyway, I just want to know if they've put any sort of filtering on the screen or if those already plentiful jaggies are twice as big as the original. If they've done something to address that then I'll definitely be trading up.

my questions?

what are you going to give buyers this time when you are forced to drop the price so its priced with the same parity as the us version ($20 more than 3ds) AND include a psu / charge base?

if you want me to buy an xl for home use in addition to my 3ds are you going to allow me to have my content on BOTH systems if not, no sale.
