Why would anyone buy a regular 3DS when the 3DS XL is exactly the same price?
That is what it is in Australia. Is it the same price in other parts of the world?
What I really can't understand is why on earth anyone would buy the regular one at the same price. Prove me wrong people. Anyone here buy the regular over the XL at the same price? Also, surely they can't cost the same to produce. Does that mean one is under-priced or over-priced? I don't ever remember seeing a situation like this in the game console market before. I find it bizarre.
It does however make the XL a bargain. For the record, they are both $229 Au (a PS Vita is $349 for comparison). To clear up the "wow, you guys pay too much" comments, we get paid a lot more than the average American, with the minimum wage at $16 an hour and the average wage over $50k a year. Even the absolute worst job will get you over $30k a year.
