Nintendo DSi XL Review

 

It's the DSi on steroids, the portable console for the poorly sighted, for your grandparents, for anyone with big hands and big pockets. On sale in Japan for several months now, the Nintendo DSi XL has only just arrived on North American shores. Not so...

Nintendo DSi XL

 

Apart from its larger size and bigger screens, Nintendo's newest handheld gaming device, the DSi XL ($189.99 list) isn't all that different from its smaller sibling, the DSi ($169.99, ). In fact, it's almost identical. If you're looking to get into...

Larger screens are easier to see. Side-angle viewing is much-improved and makes for better group gameplay. Louder, clearer sound. Pen-size stylus is bundled

Not as pocketable as the DSi. Screen size has increased from the DSi, but resolution remains the same. Low-resolutions cameras have not been upgraded from the DSi. Comes in two odd colors

Larger, but otherwise very similar to the DSi, the Nintendo DSi XL is a great choice if you're getting your first portable Nintendo device, especially to share among family members. The larger screens alone, though, don't provide enough incentive for...

Nintendo DSi XL review

 

Since Nintendo first asserted sole domination over the handheld gaming market with the release of the paperback-sized Game Boy in 1989, the company has

Unmatched durability ; Fills a room with sound ; Slightly improved battery life

Some games look pixelated ; Stiff, shallow buttons unsuitable for longer play ; Fingerprint magnet

Nintendo DSi XL Review

 

Nintendo's blown-up DSi XL offers a more immersive experience, but may not be worth the upgrade for existing DS owners.

Here’s the bottom line: the Nintendo DSi XL is probably not worth the upgrade if you already own a Nintendo DSi, because it’s essentially the same machine but, er, bigger. On the flipside, the DSi XL is only $20 more than the DSi, so if you’re in the...

Review: Nintendo DSi XL

 

An extra inch of screen real estate takes Nintendo's newest portable from mere novelty to drool inducing "must have."

Big, gorgeous screens and comfy Sharpie-sized stylus prove it: Size matters. Better battery life than DSi

Blown-up art looks a bit pixelized. Where are we supposed to store that giant stylus

Review: Nintendo DSi XL

 

The release of the DSi XL, or DSi LL as it is known in Japan, was a surprise for many. Nintendo had already released three iterations of the DS hardware, and the DSi felt like the final handheld before a complete refresh was due. But that wasn't the...

Nintendo DSi XL

 

The Nintendo DSi XL is the latest portable game console from Nintendo. It is easily one of the best handheld game consoles produced. The extra-large screens are ideal for those looking for a better

This handheld game console has two large, easy-to-see screens

It is slightly more difficult to carry around because of its size

The Nintendo DSi XL is great if you are more concerned about screen size than portability.

Travel-Friendly Gadget: Nintendo DSi XL

 

Did Nintendo bury the DSi XL before it even had the chance to take off?

Though Nintendo has mentioned an upcoming 3D venture, will you still purchase the DSi? The typical thought process when developing portable electronics is usually that smaller is better. Whether it is for reduced cost, improved energy efficiency or...

The Nintendo DS is the best selling portable system till now. The company has sold 128 million units around the world and any other gaming console does not become so appealing towards the franchise system. Despite of being commercial success, the Sony...
