Should I buy a refurbished Nintendo 3DS XL for $140 + shipping, or hold out for the new 3DS?
The extra control stick might be nice for Smash, and extra beefed-up hardware all around would be cool. Not to mention 3d that follows my eyes.
The main concern are the exclusive games. I don't really play Xenoblade but I may in the future. Also, if the new Pokemon is on the new 3DS...
I won't be playing that many games on it, mainly Pokemon (I'll pick up OR/AS on the same day, and maybe X/Y soon after unless Z is announced). However, I will probably be spending hundreds of hours on it (I'll be going for a Living Dex + doing some 6 IV breeding). I might pick up Smash.
