I got myself a 3DS XL as soon as I heard about the release of Pokemon X and Y. That was my main reason for getting a 3DS, but if that's the only game your'e going to get, than get the regular 3DS if you don't have one. There are also a lot of games that are coming out for the 3DS- Bravely Default, Project X Zone, TLoZ ALttP 2, SSB Universe, Yoshi's Island 2, etc... There are also a lot of good games that are already out such as SSF4, Super Mario 3D Land, TLoZ OoT, Kingdom Hearts, Luigi's Mansion. Whats also a good perk of the XL, even though people say the resolution isn't higher with the better screen, you can barely notice any difference. So it all comes down to what you want. If it's just for X and Y, I'd recommend the regular 3DS, otherwise if you'd buy more games, get the XL, the 90x bigger screen makes games a whole more lot of fun.
