Summary: I LOVE Nintendo DS, it has tonnes of games and it's really fun to play. DSi XL is perhaps most awesome of DS family. It has huge bright screens that are just pleasure to watch. Unfortunately, it has some technical problems. For example.
Summary: I am very pleased with my XL. The colour is perhaps a bit strong but the large screen is great. Much easier to see than my old ds lite. I have played with the camera a bit but my reason for buying it was to play games, my preference being Professor Layton.
Summary: The Nintendo DS - and this, the XL version, was a great handheld in its time, and has an amazing catalogue of games. However, time moves on, and this console has been rendered obsolete by the 3DS XL. The 3DS is not just a DS in 3D - it is a full generational leap.
Summary: Love the colour and for my more mature eyes the larger screen makes playing easier. It is heavier than expected and although it was great to get the larger stylus there is no where to attach this to the console so you end up using the smaller one.
