I personally think that the DSi XL is pointless. I have both the DSi and DSi XL and prefer my DSi. The DSi XL is the exact same thing with all the same features as the DSi has, but are for older people who has hard time to play, type, see and read. The only exception that the DSi XL has over the DSi is that the DSi XL already has pre-downloaded the Nintendo DSi Browser, Nintendo DSi Camera, Nintendo DSi Sound, Nintendo DSi Download Play, Nintendo DSi Picto Chat, Flipnote Studio, Mario Vs. Donkey Kong 1: March of the Minis Again, Photo Dojo, ect.
I have an original PSP which as far as I am concerned is a better option than the Go. The main disadvantage of downloading games is that you can never get them at bargain prices as the price rarely drops. Also you are pretty much limited to your own Region for games.
Comapring with DSiXL? The Go would be more of a pocket device for portable gaming. For gaming in general the DSiXL would I suspect be too big to be comfortably portable. However there is a very wide choice of games and they work fine. My issue with PSP's is the analogue "stick" which I do not get along with, I presume the Go is better, but how good is it I wonder.
PSP's do have the advantage of being able to show movies (which do seem to work well and are easily watchable).
The main downfall of the DSi Series is that it does not support any downloads at all and does not support Media Files, but the main uprise that the DSi Series has over the PSP Series is that the DSi can connect anywhere and does not have to rely on Hot Spots alone like the PSP does.
The good and bad thing about the DSi Series has is the ability to have an extremely good firmware to block all Rom, Emulators, Homebrews, ect for the DSi and DSi XL V1.3 and V1.4.
One bizarre thing about the DSi is that I use my PS3 for the AAC music files which is one of the formats that the PS3 uses to store music on its hard disk. I can put my CD in import it to AAC format and put it on my SD card for listening on the DSi. In that respect the PS3 can supply music to the PSPGo (MP3 format) or the DSi series (AAC format)!!
I sold my dsi and traded it for a dsi xl not too long ago lol.Does anyone think that was a good choice?
well you did i little, all it just have a 93% large screen and have a little more sound, and i have one too. i didn't have the dsi because i didn't have the money to buy one well it was march i had the money to buy it but, i saw the dsixl show thing so i got that.
The DSi and DSi XL only accepts AAC Formats (.M4a .Mp4 .3gp), but not Copyright Music. You can usually use a Youtube to Mp4 or Video to Mp4 Converter to save on your Micro SD Card, SD Card or SDHC Card. It is a lot easier and your DSi or DSi XL will even accept Copyright Music by doing it this way. However the DSi or DSi XL does not support any other Music Formats and this is one of the downfalls with the DSi Series.
As for the PSP Series, I like this System because you can Download and Watch Videos, Listen to .Mp3 Music Format, Ect.
It all depends on what you want with the System. Do you prefer A) Downloading and watching Videos, Listening to .Mp3 Music Format, Expensive Downloadable Games and Limited Internet Accessibility or B) Unlimited Internet Accessibility, Listening to AAC (.M4a .Mp4 .3gp) Music Formats and Cheaper Downloadable Games?
