**On a side note, I’m finding it staggering how much better (all round) playing a DS game on my DSi-XL is, than on my N3DS-XL.
Interesting. Why's that?
So, I'm totally done with testing things but I'll give you a brief summary.
It feels better. The games were designed to be played with a D-Pad, so the position of the D-pad (being at the more comfortable top position) just feels better.
It looks better. I started playing C:DoS on my N3DS-XL with the IPS screen, in DS pixel perfect mode (by holding start & select when you boot the cart
). The problem with Pixel Perfect on the 3DS-XL is that it leaves big big borders, which make it look too odd. The only other option is to stretch it out - nope.
After about 4 hours and not feeling completely comfortable with it on the 3DS, I thought I'd boot it on my DSi-XL and see what that was like.
There's a large difference, firstly the aspect ration is perfect and fits wonderfully, but also the colours are more vivid and clearly a lot sharper.
Games also seem to load faster. Not something I'm generally sensitive too but I'm sure these in and out of these quicker than on my 3DS.
I even went back to my 3DS to see confirm what I thought and I stand by it.
Now, I'm funny about hardware - I love it, so these are very minor things, I'm sure most won't even notice it generally but I keep an eye out things like this as I enjoy it.
