Less Reflection on 3DS XL Screen
In addition to the 3DS XL’s significant new features such as the nearly doubled screen sizes, doubled harddrive memory and increased battery life, Satoru Iwata of Nintendo says that screen reflection is decreased.
Nintendo has spent a lot of time to minimize reflection on portable screens while keeping costs reasonable since it gets pricey. Reflectivity on the 3DS is at 12%, and at only a tiny 3% on the XL model, making it the lowest of every Nintendo console ever. There are 3 treated reflective layers to virtually eliminate glare, giving gamers a more vivid 3D experience. The 3DS XL is an extra $30 than the normal model, but with all these internal and aesthetic benefits it makes for a good investment for more intensive gamers or just those who enjoy the added luxury.
The 3DS XL goes on sale in North America on August 19th for $199.99.
