@domagojrecc Tell them the '2DS XL' means it's for 'Dedicated Students, Excellent Learners'.

What better way to celebrate than firing something out of the pipe?

Nothing is true. Everything is permitted.

Well that really depends on your situation. Are you upgrading from a normal 2DS? Or is this your first gaming system at all? It'd help to know so we understand if it's the against gaming issue or just against spending that much money on something not too much different.

As @BezBot mentioned, it might be helpful to have a little more context on your situation.

(Also Bez, since I have your attention, I'm playing through Wind Waker for the first time. That expression on Link's face was priceless! XD)

Feel free to send me a Switch friend request, but please tell me first. Otherwise, I probably won't accept.

Video games are the Devil! And your friend is possessed and a new 2DS XL will help you study the demons to help free your friend from their plight.....
maybe. ūüė≥

@domagojrecc Ok so I'd guess your parents are against it for these possible reasons.

1. It costs too much money

So to avoid the money issue show them how much it is and work out a deal. Maybe for your birthday or Christmas they can get you it. And if it's still too much maybe say you can do work around the house or mow the lawn or something to make the price seem more reasonable. If your family is financially poor however you might want to look into getting a normal 2DS if all else fails.

2. It isn't good for your health.

This one there are tons of official articles and stuff on if you google it.. It actually can help you with eye-hand coordination, reduce stress, and actually eye sight as well. It also goes with the you'll get fat thing, it won't happen if you still eat healthy and get your needed exercise.

3. It will make your grades go down

This one you just need to show you can manage your time well. Say that you will do your homework before gaming and stuff (this is what I always do) or make a different schedule to show them. Remember, when you get the game system, actually follow it to show they can trust you for future stuff (such as more games).

4. You'll have no friends and be lonely
This is just wrong, but I have seen it come up. Say it'll help because you'll be able to play with your friends and interact with them more playing games.

5. You won't like it
This one is unlikely and pretty much wipes out the other points besides money. Tell them you really really want it and it would be the best if they would get it for you.

If your parents have different reasons you can ask how to respond to it with a reply.

Here's some things to keep in mind while making your argument:
-Video games help you cope with stress and anxiety and overall make you happy. This can help you stay away from negative relievers, such as using drugs or binge drinking alcohol.
-Ask them why they won't let you get it if they haven't already told you. This will make it clear what your counter-argument should be and if you don't know one, ask us.
-Keep asking for it and keep trying. They want to know what they will be spending all that money on will be worth it. Don't whine and cry if they say no though. You want to show them that you can be responsible. Tell them your points on why you think you should. Don't give up on it.

Good luck!

It looks like Bez covered the bases pretty well.

If it's a question of money, your best bet there, if nobody will buy it for you, is to save up for the system yourself. This can be done with gift money or money that you earn doing chores or odd jobs. My second handheld system ever, a Game Boy Advance SP, was bought using gift and chore money that I had saved up. It can be done, it just takes a LOT of patience.

If it's more a problem with your parents not wanting you to play video games for whatever reason, prove to them that games, when played responsibly, are not harmful. Balance your gaming time with your other responsibilities in life. It can be hard, and there may be some days that you won't have time to play games. Responsibilities should always come before leisure activities, be it schoolwork, chores, or other obligations.

Maybe your parents are right, and you should get the New Nintendo 3DS XL.
Also, tell your parents that you will set a time limit to play, and agree with them about it. I would recommend no more than 40mins. on week days, and no more than 2 hrs on each day of week end. With this restriction, they might feel that you are ready.
