Anyone Thinking of Buying a Nintendo 3DS XL? Read This.
The 3DS at this point is pretty much dead, but it has a fantastic library of games and the 3D effect can be impressively good.
However, on the old 3DS models the 3D effect is off and nauseating. I mean, while it is unfocused, you can make it work by standing your eyes in a straight position so you can enjoy the 3D experience. I bought an old 3DS XL for like £37 and for that, I don't mind that the 3D effect isn't as good as on the New 3DS.
As such, if you're going to buy a 3DS and an XL model, go for the New 3DS (one way to tell is the name "New", the other is that it has two analog thumbs).
P.S. Hacking a 3DS isn't hard and you can play all games for "free" by doing it, but that's piracy so it's up to each one's moral compass.
