This is a joke right? Tell me this is a joke...

http://www.gamerevolution.com/news/3ds-xl-announced-90-bigger-screens-no-second-circle-pad-13573

Yeah, I'm sure the larger screens are nice, but the games already look bad. Stretching isn't gonna help. Waste of money for several other reasons I don't feel like listing.

Edit: Edited in the GR coverage to your post.

Oh, sweet, less battery life and worse graphics, that's totally what i wanted.

Give me a PM when the 3DS lite is coming out, by then a new pokemon might exist and make the purchase of a 3DS make some sense.
Imma also need a way to remove the bullshit region lock.

I have heard that shorter is sweeter.

You know what's sad? There are people out there with 3DS's who see this and immediately take out their wallets.

Nintendo knows this. Everyone saw it coming. The next revision will probably be here by Christmas time, and people will buy it.

I really hope Sony doesn't follow in their footsteps, at least not at the same pace.

You actually believe that lie?
What are they gonna say? "No, it has the same 4 hours of play time as the normal one"?
Of course they're gonna say it's better. But it very likely won't.

Also, no AC adapter.
Who the fuck do nintendo think will buy this? People with a 3DS already?
How many people have the level of functional retardation that would be required for them to have a job to spend money and then buy this to go with their 3DS?

Or maybe that's Nintendos plan. Maybe everybody who purchases this will be put on The List, and those on The List will be left to die when it happens.

It isn't coming with an AC Adapter in Japan. The opposite is true for North America.

Also...bigger handheld, bigger battery...but...the screens are bigger too...so yeah I doubt there will be a substantial difference.

You'll be saying that you wish you would have waited next year.

I'm going to pick one up later today. I can't look at the tiny little screen compared to the Vita anymore. Anyone else tempted by the XL?

You try so hard, Dan. ;P

I'm not tempted at all. I might be, in a handful of years, but not now.

Did he? I'm not sure. It probably doesn't even matter, anyway.

My response as well.

The 3DS library is growing super quick. I expect it'll be somewhat like the DS library some time from now. I love every single game I've gotten for the system so far, but the Vita screen is just so much more attractive.
