News Summary: Nintendo 3DS with larger screens

BIGGER SCREEN: Nintendo Co. has upgraded its 3DS handheld to sport a screen nearly twice as big as the previous model.

THE BACKDROP: It comes amid hot competition against smartphones and tablets that are wooing people away from dedicated gaming machines.

DETAILS: The Nintendo 3DS LL, called 3DS XL outside Japan, goes on sale in Japan and Europe July 28, and in the U.S. from Aug. 19. It will sell for $199.99 in the U.S.
