Sobering thought: 3DS XL, and the issue of...
So, it was an innocuous tweet: Who’s thinking about getting a 3DS XL, then? Out tomorrow in the UK. And I like it a lot more than the original model. ttp://is.gd/bWmlKF But it got me thinking: why would I? Let’s do a quick breakdown here. A 3DS XL is around £180-£200.
