Is really true?

Because no one really cares about it, it's just a DSi with a big screen. Handhelds don't get much coverage here unless it's Gizmo posting about the PSPGo and bitching about it.

High Def Console Smackdown... not HD nor a console...

move to game room...

all this is, is the same shit with a bigger screen with the same resolution as the previous model... so you have bigger pixels...

probably will region lock it this time as well...

Half your statement is true, it doesnt need to be HD to be in this forum.
But as someone else put it, who cares about the XL?

The pixel density on this thing will be atrocious and it's so damn heavy.

I'm sure there is a market for this if Nintendo says there is but at the same time it flies in the face of everything I thought people consider as attractive qualities in a handheld.

From what I understand this is being marketed to adults and won't be manufactured in the same large quantities as the reg DSi. Wish they'd offer the new colors on the reg DSi though.

I can probably fit well with my hands.

I probably won't bother buying it.

I sold my original DS (the first gen) and haven't missed it much. I would like to play chinatown wars, but oh well.
