    Thing is, at least Americans are also getting the 3DSXL, there's an actual chance that we in Europe aren't getting Conquest at all and I don't want to pirate games.

    No they didn't.

    Nintendo of America is winning since they are offering the 3DSXL with the charger and cradle.

    All Nintendo of Europe is offering is a typing game and 3DSXL without the charger.

    Hell we still have no words about the Kirby anniversary collection game.

    It's amazing just how you're putting words in people mouth.

    They never stated that Nintendo is themselves collectively incapable of brainstorming ideas.

    It's alright having Nintendo say it's bigger and better etc. but coming from the fans/gamers, would it be better to get the 3DS, or the 3DS?

    Please, go ahead and list the pros and cons of each, it's help me out and would be appreciated.
    Just buy the 3DS since you will have to pay an extra Ł5-10 to buy the charger.

    Since the 3DS is bigger Nintendo can put a bigger size battery in.

    Beside the battery life is only extended by 1.5 hours.

    Just import the Australian version, since from my research it work on a European 3DS.

    In all seriousness:

    3DS
    Pros: More portable, crisper graphics, Cheaper
    Cons: Lower battery life

    3DS XL
    Pros: Bigger battery life
    Cons: Blurrier graphics, more expensive

    Everything else is down to opinion, such as the slightly different design, doesn't really make a difference, such as there being no charger with the XL, or we just don't know.
    Wait how do you know its going to be blurrier graphics? As for the more expensive part, its only $30 bucks more for a bigger size and marginally better battery.

    I assume he's talking about the DS games being blurrier.

    This pretty much.

    If you are European or Japanese and don't own a 3DS/DSi/DSiXL you would be better off getting the 3DS.

    We've been through this: same screen resolution + larger screen = stretched/blurry image.

    Hope Nintendo watches this and really makes it!!
    That doesn't indicate to you a belief that Nintendo has to prowl fanart sites for hardware edition ideas?

    Larger system = larger battery, one would assume.

    Not to mention they skimped on the 3DS battery in the first place. You can get larger capacity batteries at the same size for the 3DS.

    Really? Blurrier graphics on the XL compared to the original? Some games I can understand but what about titles like Kid Icarus:Uprising? In some cut scenes, some characters seem to be made of pixels as opposed to a 3D model. Would the XL fix this?

    The XL is not going to "fix" anything. Again, it is literally little else besides screens that are larger in size but at the same resolution.

    How would you play Kid Icarus:Uprising on the 3DSXL?

    I would assume that you would have to use the stand that came with it.

    Although real men play Kid Icarus:Uprising without the stand.

    Yeah, Without the stand. It's just easier to hold the 3DS in one hand and use the circle hand with the hand while the other is used to push the button used to fire & use the touch screen to aim your shots.

    Other than that, I don't get why some people would get on whining about the 3DS XL. That being since all of this whine about is all stuff that the original 3DS needed. Just look, Take the fact that the original 3DS had a terrible battery life while the new XL version has a way better one. Ain't that something that everybody would be rejoicing over, but there is still whining since of countless stupid little stuf . Besides, I'm just glad that the XL's price is just about fifty dollars cheaper than the original at launch.

    there's no Battle Frontier?!

    I play without the stand. Never played Kid Icarus: Uprising with it.

    That's because you are living in the US so you are getting the better deal.

    But in Europe buying the 3DS is a rip off since;

    - you would need to either own a 3DS/DSi/DSXL since the 3DSXL doesn't come with a charger.
    - Even you own a 3DS there isn't any point in buying the 3DSXL since all it offers is the bigger screen and the 1.5 extra battery power.
    - In Europe the retailers are the ones who is setting the 3DSXL price so they are just going rip you off by overcharging you plus add Ł5-10 on buying a charger.

    Trust me buying the 3DSXL isn't worth the high price plus the Ł5-10 when you buy the charger separately, unless you opt to buy a cheaper charger but then you run the risk of it breaking and having to fork out more money to replace it.

    Nintendo of Europe messed up in making the charger being sold separately from the 3DSXL.

    It's barely better than it. Saying it's "way better" is a complete overstatement.

    Well a quick Google search said it would work, but now I am not so sure.

    Unless someone here can confirm it.

    Ugh if only Nintendo of Europe didn't chose to release that stupid typing game we wouldn't be having this problem.

    They did that a little bit with the 3DS for a while.
    I have claimed Joltik. Deal with it.

    I think they might mean the price or something. I'm not sure though. Maybe they think Nintendo expects people with 3DSes to buy this as well.
