Same. I was on the verge of selling it prior to Christmas, but I'm really glad I didn't- especially with the new Pokémon games coming. Still not particularly satisfied with the way Nintendo has been handling it so far.

I'd say that upgrading to the XL is worth it, but only if you can find a decent deal on it, or for your old 3DS. I like it a lot better than my old 3DS, and it actually has a decent design. Only thing is, I wish that they either had the all black XL, or the silver XL available in the US.

The XL is definitely better, but I don't like the color choices. I wish they'd make some new ones. Preferably all black. Or black and white (combination)

The XL is way to big... The normal 3ds is the perfect size, no reason for a XL

Not at all, it's the perfect size. The original was much too tiny and hurt my hands after long sessions. After experiencing an XL the original's 3-layer design feels cheap compared to the solid feel of the XL. Best upgrade in my opinion.

I understand, I do like the huge screens and feel. But it does not seem like a worthy upgrade.

Yeah, I can't play the original 3DS long before my hands cramp up. It's too small for comfortable play. However I don't have extended use experience with the XL to know if it really solves that problem. I can only presume so.

Luigi's Mansion: Dark Moon will have co-op multiplayer for up to four people. It supports local, online, and download-play (for friends that don't have the game), and is called hunter mode- no other modes have been confirmed, but the word 'mode' behind hunter suggests that there may be more modes, possibly a mode like Luigi's Ghost Mansion in Nintendo Land for the Wii U?

In hunter mode, you play with three other players as multi-colored Luigi's, and work together to take down ghosts to clear levels. Levels are randomly generated, and the enemies are random as well. There is a timer, and you must finish the level before time runs out in order to move onto the next level. There are three different difficulties, as well as the ability to select how many levels to play a game for (infinite mode included).

Luigi's Mansion may be a reason to pick up an XL to go along with our standard one. So we can play co-op, and so I can play on an XL.
