I'd hate to admit it, but this is a smart move. It's targeted probably towards the elderly and those with strained eyes. Nintendo really goes after untapped markets. I'm going to get this for sure for my Grandmother with Sudoku.
I lost my DS Lite, so small its easy to lose, going to get my one of these. Also DS Lite made my hands cramp a lot from using that tiny stylus. I was going to get the DSi but since they have the XL I am quite happy to wait for it. Been holding off on getting Mario & Lugui 3 & Legend of Zelda: Spirit Tracks till I get the XL, also Drawn to Life & its sequel look interesting.
