Whilst no-one could argue that the resolution looks as sharp as the smaller 3DS (I guess that's how to describe it - in the same way that smaller TV's seem to look sharper that bigger ones? So it's not that it's soft, it's just not as sharp?) but the size difference makes me feel more like I'm playing a Gamecube game - it sort of feels more home-consoley rather than a handheld. Something like VVVVVV now just looks properly like it's on a C64, rather than on PC. I dunno, it's really hard to put it into words, I'd recommend you guys have a look at one if you get chance. I prefer it. I think some people won't, but honestly, that screen is huuuge in comparison. I also find it comfier to hold, but I'm an adult with adult size hands!
I have to say that when I played on your 3DS briefly at Retrovision one of the things that bothered me about it, apart from it making my eyes go funny, was how small the screen was. So for me this new model would be a far better option.
