I recently purchased a DSI XL, because I wanted the larger screen. I soon returned it because of the pixels. It had terrible graphics and just wasn't worth the 130 dollar price. Before I bought my 3DS Xl in blue today, I was hesitant of getting another large nintendo due to the DSI XL. I was enormously surprised of how good the 3D worked! It actually does work, with NO problems and the graphics in 3D are spectacular. I got Mario Kart 7 and Super Mario 3D land to go with it, both are excellent games! The 3D is just so magical. Very Happy with my purchase!
