WHAT THE HELL?!?!? Way to reward your faithful fans, Nintendo. Screw them yet AGAIN by coming out with cheaper, newer, better versions of the original 1000000 different times do they either have to be completely broke or not have the best. Why don't you just perfect a system BEFORE you release it so you don't screw the people that always buy your crap right away? So fed up. I always vouche for you and your stupid decisions but I'm done.

Am amazed that people are amazed this happened...everyone knew it was due to come out, many, like myself have been waiting for the XL version. You all know companies do this....look how many DS systems there were. I bought early, no regrets...and was waiting for the XL for a 2nd 3DS system.

If it actually has MORE pixels instead of just bigger pixels, I'll be interested, but I seriously doubt that.
It's just so soon after the 3DS came out that I find this disappointing. I thought they might do this, but I also thought they'd give it more time. Oh well. I hope it's successful for them, but I'll probably stick to my limited edition black/gold 3DS.

@ JemsNewton No mention of increased screen resolution, just 90% more screen size.

As bluexy said, generally these improvements are aesthetic changes not actual overhauls for performance as they'd segment the market even more with DS/DSi/3DS/3DS XL all in the same space. Larger panels, same resolution though and possibly some form of clear type to help reduce any blur.

No second circle pad? Despite them realising it was needed they still didn't add one to a brand new hardware SKU.. Let me guess they want idiots to buy this and then buy a 3DS XL version of the Circle Pad Pro? Nintendo don't think one circle pad is fine they just realised they could make $30 extra off everyone that buys this..

Why are people so surprised? This was obviously going to happen

Not sure if trolling...

It's a more expensive, larger ds that has no upsides to it other than being bigger (which may actually be a turnoff for some).

I was hoping the second analog stick would come included.
