Although the DSi is far more portable, The DSiXL is the better choice, The screen size is almost twice as large and the video on the sceen is more vibrant and you can see the game much better. You can also put a hand held controller which easily slips on the back so your hands don't get tired. The DSiXL is the winner!!!!!!
I heard rumors that DSi XL being a larger screen some DS game graphics appear stretched out as they're programmed for the regular DS/DSi screen size. Does this affect the game play ? I'm thinking of getting a DSi XL but trying to decide between the DSi or DSi XL. With the price drop they're both the same price now so it's hard to decide which to pick ?
