Gimme Gimme Games breaks down the benefits and disadvantages of buying each model.
It's a matter of preference. If you don't care for anything other than the games than the original is probably best for you. If you're like me and want games on a sizable screen, then there's the XL. Finally if you want to get one for your child who is really young and may not be able to take 3D effects, then get the 2DS. It depends on which one is best for you. Just my thoughts at least.
3DS XL is definitely the best 3DS.
All the way, I regretted buying the original 3DS after seeing my cousin play his XL.
3DSXL is the best 3DS for smaller kids (screens are protected due to clamshell design, easy sleep mode activation simply by closing it, smallest and lightest with screen size equal to 2DS, 3D effect for any potential games that may use 3D in the future). 2DS for tight budgets, and kids use to tablet gaming..
3DS XL, easily the best imo u gotta respect nintendo man, i mean they gave everyone what they wanted
Well except a 2ds XL sized but i guess it will happens someday
None of those. PS Vita
u mean flash over substance?
I love my Vita, but man... This is NOT about the Vita. This article is for 3DS/2DS. Please stop trolling. I've had to tell people that in previous 3DS/2DS articles, even though they were bashing the Vita instead of praising it. Either way, if you want to talk about Vita go to a Vita article. Just as people who want to talk about the 3DS/2DS should be in this article. -_-
Yeah. People need to stop that. ON-Topic: Best is 3DS XL. The screen size is about the same as the VITA so I like it the most.
Haha, someone was bound to say it.
I wanted to see how dislikes I would get for this Lmao
Most people do their handheld gaming at home, so 3DS XL makes the most sense, for most people. It would be even better if they'd let us use a WiiU to play 3DS games (DO IT, NINTENDO)! For the few that actually do their handheld gaming on the road, the original probably makes the most sense.
3DS XL is the best, but damn for £110/$130 the 2DS is a bargain, especially when the majority of people don't use the 3D anyways. If i didn't already have a 3DS i'd have gotten the 2DS for the price.
xl : 3 senran kagura burst
Used to own the original 3DS, loved it but it ended up getting lost or stolen. I most likely will get the XL now but I have a question: does the XL also play DS games too? I'm too lazy to look it up at the momentl
Yes it does.
They should've made the original 3DS more comfy, small buttons and a slippery thumbstick with very little grip.. plus no rounded sides, it's difficult to play it for very long. It's like they made the original for kids hands, maybe the XL is more comfortable.. idk.
Trust me. It is tge most comfartable. After using the 3DS XL the only other handheld I can use confartbly now is my VITA.
I'm so buying 3DS XL.
I'd get a 3DS XL in addition to the 2 3DS I have (Flare Red w/Capture Card and Midnight Purple) but there are no colors I want.
none of them. no gaems.
