If you don't have 3DS then 3DS XL is the way to go, it's totally worth the 30 extra bucks and even more...... If you already have 3DS the advantages of the XL may not be enough to warrant the price of upgrading

3DS XL is the best for me. 3DS is too small, and leave fatty lines on the upper screen.

3DS is better. It is more shiny, has better sound, better PPI, i.e., less pixels/better "resolution" because of the smaller screen, more portable, looks more professional and less fisher pricy, headphone slot not interfering with the left hand, has the 3D light, and I think the circle pad looks a bit bigger. If you don't have one, you can choose either, but otherwise, I wouldn't downgrade to an XL.

I got a red 3DS and a Pikachu 3DSXL, but the XL is way better quality. From the moment I got the normal 3DS I thought it looked like a prototype. All the corners are blocky and the overall design looks rushed compared to the smooth DSLite and DSiXL I was used to.

The 3DSXL has the same good quality as the Lite and i's:
No smudging on the upper screen.
No extra smudge around the buttons since of glossyness.
The power/start/home/select buttons are actual buttons, not a plastic layer.
The stylus is in a good spot to reach for quickly and it's bigger, well, you don't have to pull it to make it bigger.
Better battery life.
The edges around the screens collect less dust and crap.
The 3D button clicks off and won't be accidentally turned on.
Having Animal Crossing: New Leaf on on both at the same time, I think the XL is way easier on the eyes, especially making patterns.
The hinge for the top screen isn't loose.

The only downers are that the 3DSXL does feel heavier, it's a bit less portable and all the cool accessories are made for the normal 3DS.

Can anyone share if they think games look better or worse resolution wise for one or the other? My guess is they would truly be the same.
