Not something teens would enjoy

  • Summary: The game selection isn't very huge. If you/your child is ok with this, then you should get it. Don't make it a priority over other consoles though.
  • Pros: Easy gaming platform, very customizable.
  • Cons: The system is fragile, resulting in a broken screen, and R and L buttons.

Nintendo DSi XL falls short

  • Excerpt: I am a long time fan of Nintendo products, but I must say that I am disappointed in their decision to remove the backwards compatibility with GBA games.  This goes for both the DSi and the DSi XL.  I was actually so annoyed by the fact that it was not backwards compatable that I returned it 2 weeks later for a full refund. Pros: 4.2 inch very large screen is excellent and should be implemented on the original DS (which is backwards comptable with GBA games).

DSi XL. Meh

  • Excerpt: The DS was a great system. It had great games, and backwords compatibility with gba games. Then came the ds lite, which made the ds look much nicer, and smaller, for easier portability. After that was the dsi, which was a bit larger, had some cameras, but removed the gba backword compatibility. Now the DSi XL is basically a DSi that is HUGE. Mostly because of it's much larger screen. At first you would think this is great, but think again.

The Nintendo DSi XL is Good But You Should Wait

  • Excerpt: And here is why. The Nintendo DSi XL is the big tubby twin brother of the Nintendo DSi. It has the same insides and the outsides look nearly identical although the XL needs to lay off the sweets a little. The screens of the DSi and the DSi XL are the same although the XL's screens are bigger, what I mean is you don't get anymore pixels on the XL so the images look pixelated and grainy sometimes.

  • Summary: I love my new DSi XL. It is so much larger than the original DS but still small enough that it doesn't wreck havoc on my wrists. The pixels are the same as the smaller DS so the screen quality is ok. Not HD for sure.

A shame

  • Summary: Arrived well packaged and I happily wrapped it up for my daughters birthday in two weeks. She opened the box to find the DSi XL didn't work and had a error message across screen asking me to contact Nintendo. I had to send the console to be fixed without as much as a game being played on it!!! Returned 10 days later and appears to be working.
