I already own an original 3DS, and dont understand why anybody would buy what is effectively the same console twice.

Unless you have really bad eyesight and require the bigger screens, id forget buying an XL and use the money to buy more games instead.

If there was an additional analog stick it would have been a day one buy. Since it does not--I'll hold out until Monster Hunter makes it's way to the West.

I'll probably end up buying a Vita before the XL

Definitely, my giant hands will benefit greatly from the extra grip space and those glorious screens will be icing on the cake. Plus more battery life is always welcome. Smilie

Doesn't fix any of my issues with the system, so unless it blows me a way in person, no.
