i don’t mind getting a “new” 3ds because i skipped the 3ds XL and i got my original 3ds after the price drop, so a new, more efficient model is more appealing.
same thing as when i got my dsi. i had previously only owned the original DS. the fat silver one. i skipped the ds lite because i didn’t need it.
its becoming less and less necessary to buy every new console nintendo makes nowadays, and thats fine by me.
i wanted to get an XL soon anyway, now this new xl with all of these new features, just means that its a better idea when i get it
