Hater. I am told it's 3% so I have already convinced my brain I'll be able to see the difference.

Oh I dunno, glare percentage shouldn't be too difficult to prove or disprove. Glare is pretty much unwanted light reflecting off a surface. So it's a matter of figuring out how much wattage per area is glaring off the old 3DS then measure it against the new 3DS XL. So...somekind of photovoltaic sensor (we all have those lying around the house, I'm sure ;)) Or maybe do the ghetto way and snap pictures of the glare off the old and new 3ds and use photoshop or with some color filters to determine the difference. I wouldn't say it's hard...but it's definitely cumbersome, but if it's that important to someone...then they'd do it. Otherwise, I'd chalk it up as a nice incentive to those who wanted a 3DS but didn't get around to purchasing one yet for whatever reasons. If you didn't want a 3DS in the first place...then yeah, this will just be fuel for your cynicism.

Already have one. But I'm pretty sure your eye would have a massive amount of trouble noticing 3%. You know. out of 100 levels of less glare.

Got it for FREEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE! I used my Mother's shopper's drug mart points and she had over 240 dollars worth! muHAHAHA!

Awesome, if you were waiting for a 3ds and wanted this, it's worth it. Best screen ever on a Nintendo handheld and the new size makes pressing the L and R buttons a lot easier. Very comfortable to hold compared to the normal 3ds

not as shiny tho and it feels like the old DSs with the plastic feeling. But the screens have all these nice locking clicky things going instead of the loose feelings the old 3ds has.

I also got Mario Bros 2 for free also. Store had a trade in for it, only one game, so I said sure, just took in my extra copy of Batman AC that I have cause I got it for a bday present and FREEEEEEEEEEE MARIOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!
