The DSi XL’s strikingly thick upper body to reveal two giant, bright screens that slapped our jaded views in the face like a wet fish. Its quite striking just how nice the new 4.2 inch screens are compared to the much smaller 3.25 inch screens of the standard DSi. Unlike any previous DS, they have impact, like the original PSP did when you first saw one.
The comparisons out of the way: obvious volumetric differences aside, the maximum brightness versus the DSi seems to be slightly higher, and the stylus is inexplicably a handful of millimeters longer — not a big deal, but you’ll definitely figure it out when trying to stuff it into an older model.

The slight downfall of an expanded screen is that, with the same 256×192 resolution as the smaller screens and a good set of eyes you can see the now larger pixels, which gives games a slightly blockier look. An issue that’s probably not as noticeable to the older crowd for which the XL is clearly designed.Functionality wise, it’s all pretty much identical to the DSi. Boot-up speeds seem identical, menus the same.

Whether or not you should buy a DSi XL really depends on how you use your DS – if you tend not to carry it out with you, and only ever tend to use it at home, then the DSi XL is the better choice – if only for the stunning screen size. Games are easier to play and stylus use will be more accurate.

    Good overview. I am pleased to hear that the bigger screens have an impact.
