@Sooty: You're expecting there won't be a revision on the 3DS by 2014? You're more optimistic than me.
Like what! Dual sticks or a 3DS Lite? The XL looks perfect to me but who knows...I really like that they changed the front plate of the screen to matte, the glossy black drove me nuts on my first 3DS.
Sorry but I have to bump this because Nintendo did exactly what @razielcuts said would happen did happen, hahah.
