Im very happy with this, I preferred my gameboy to the gameboy lite, my GBA to the SP and my DS to the Lite, now I can replace my ageing DS with something that doesn't feel minuscule in my clumsy non Japanese hands
I'm glad to see this released in the US especially after reading about it during the japan release. I've had a DS Lite since it's release and while i love it, I find the small screens cause my eyes to tire out way to quickly. So this will be good for me and other who have issues with the smaller screens like i do.

the DSi XL is meant for people with larger hands that dont fit with the current DSi very well. The main reason why i went for the original DS than the lite back in 2007.

Then you really not wanting the world to move.....
Thats like saying, you're not going to buy an 45nm quad core cpu because 32nm quad core cpus are going to be coming sooner or later. Guess what? the world loves to refine thing. make the next thing a little better than the last.
You should always expect there something that will better coming around the corner. As most of us say on the forums on computer hardware, "dont wait for something better. get what you need/want now, there will always be something better than whats currently out now."
