Default Should i buy a new 3ds XL?

So... story time,

It has been a while since i've touched my original 3ds...

Man... i've had a blast replaying OOT(Main reason why i bought it!) MK8 and some other games...
But the issue i had with it was the 3d was clunky when i wasn't holding it in the sweet spot, and after an hour orso my hands started to hurt since it was so small...

Now with pokemon sun/moon coming out... i've a itch... Should i get it?
But do i really wanna relive that crap again? And honestly... maybe should i just buy a new one? The big one? 200 euro's though...

Is it worth it? I don't wanna regret this decision in a month or two, Is there any new consoles from nintendo coming out?(Handheld) Or maybe even a new version of it that i should wait a month or two for?

Ofcourse i would buy Zelda MM and some other games on top of pokemon.
I'm just not sure if its gonna be worth 200 to basicly buy a bigger version and just let my old one collect dust unless my GF wants to play together lol.

Cause its gonna be either a 3ds XL or i'm gonna save a bit more and get a PS4 for when the new final fantasy games are coming out.

Suggestions, i welcome thee!

And thanks!

Do it. The N3DS XL is the best way to play 3DS. That screen size is amazing. Get the Solgaleo and Lunala 3DS if you can.

I was the same... Had the old 3ds and not sure whether or not to go for the xl. I went with my gut and it. It's amazing... No hand cramps at all so much more comfortable to play! Can't recommend it enough. Mind you I prefer handhelds to normal consoles anyday.

I've had an XL for a long time, and never had hand cramps, but I also owned an original and never had cramps with that either. I recenty got a New XL and the 3D effect is a huge improvement. I say go for it. My 3DS sees considerably more use than my PS4. Sell your old one on eBay to get back some kf the money!

If money is not your concern, i'd like to choose 3ds XL. SKY3DS+ is the best flashcard for 3ds games.
