Nintendo DSi XL

 

Nintendo is bucking convention and going bigger with its new DSi XL

Superior audio quality, sleek yet hefty design, larger screen size benefits both graphics and DS touch gameplay

High price for a late redesign, despite larger dimensions there's no GBA support, camera resolution hasn't been improved from the original DSi whatsoever

Nintendo's extra large handheld bucks its predecessors' smaller, sleeker designs in light of a heftier frame and wider screen, but is it worth its equally sizable price tag -- especially with the newly announced 3DS on the horizon?

Nintendo DSi XL review: Nintendo DSi XL

 

Nintendo DSi XL

Adds two supersized screens; improved viewing angle; fantastic battery life; great new pen-shaped stylus; preinstalled games and software.

A bit bulky and heavy; size makes device less portable; no improvements over DSi's cameras and internal storage; networking hiccups found in DSi remain; text-based games may look slightly blurry; old DSiWare games can't be transferred over to the XL.

At the end of the day, the DSi XL is exactly the same as the DSi, so unless you're desperate for more touch-screen real estate, or your vision is impaired, we can't recommend a purchase over the original DSi.

More good fun

 

I had a DS that I stopped using quite a while ago as it was just too much of a strain on my eyes. The XL has a screen 93% larger than a DS lite as well as 3 inbuilt games so I don't have to be changing memory cards every time I want to play. I saw that...

The larger screen is great.

Bigger screen but pixellated graphics

 

After using a DS Lite for a couple of years, I thought the larger version, with camera, would be a step up, but I was a little disappointed. While it is great to see some of my favourite games on a 'bigger' scale, the screen is more pixellated. It also...

I liked the bigger screen and the great colours available for the console

It is quite heavy and clunky and the graphics become pixellated when enlarged.

Meh.

 

There's really nothing you can say about the Nintendo DSi XL. same capabilities as the other DS range but slightly bigger. I really don't understand why they've made it bigger seeing that they got rid of the original DS because it was too big. Totally...

Bigger

Defeats the purpose of having something small in your pocket
