I went to my local gamestop today and talked to them about trading my 3DS in with Legend of Zelda and DSLite. They said they'd give my $150 on trade. I don't play the DSLite so it's worth nothing to me same with Zelda. Is it worth the $50 for me to get it? Or just hang tight with my orginal 3DS?

wow, great trade in deal ... I would answer yes. I bought the XL & the screen makes a huge difference. I was able to transfer all the DL games from the original 3DS & they look great on the larger screen. for a $50 difference - absolutely. have fun !

Is the screen really pixelated on games? That's my main concern in getting the 3DSXL. Otherwise I love everything else over the original 3DS.

no, there is not the terrible distortion the DS XL suffered ... there is some reduction on the bottom screen, text doesn't appear quite as crisp, but well worth it for the upper screen. & my Zen Pinball looks stunning ! Mario 3D Land & Star Fox look incredible on the XL ....

you definiatley want to do the upgrade! the screen size is perfectly aligned with your eyes! every game is now more crips, fun, clear, and 3d and depth to the max!

Well I traded yesterday and can I say to anyone else who is thinking of swapping, DO IT. The 3DSXL is a huge improvement over the 3DS. All the little things that are better add up to a make much better experience, not to mention the BIG changes. Well worth what it cost me to trade.

If you are considering, I recommend trading the 3ds for the new xl. The screen is great all around and it doesn't have the major pixel explosion that the dsi xl had. I just traded in my dsi xl and my day 1 launch 3ds and I have zero regret!

I have tons of 3ds games. They all look great. But in Miiverse, the top screen of the regular 3ds is crisper. But for everything else, its GREAT.
