I think I'm finally going to get a DS. I have a 25 dollar gift card, that plus the 40 dollar gift card is a decent deal.

Not a bad deal if you get the 3DS bundle w/Mario 3D Land and use $40 gift card toward Zelda 3DS and Mario Kart 7 - $220 before tax and you get arguably the best 3 games.

Make that awesome system deal (singular), the 3DS bundle is pretty neat, might consider it...

The flaming red 3Ds is $199.99? Typo? Never mind... The red 3DS bundle is $199.99, the Pink 3DS bundle is $169.99.

Hopefully they'll have games restocked at that point. Been waiting on buying Super Mario 3D Land for a deal. That + Mario Kart 7 will be a great combo. Now to decide if I should pair Star Fox with something or not...

I wonder if that Zelda bundle stays BB/GS exclusive or if others will get it? I figure they'd advertise the crap out of it if they had it, but even so.

This deal looks too good to be true, but I noticed that in the paper it shows the regular 169.99 red 3DS, not the 199.99 Super Mario 3DS bundle.

Oh, did your dog get a hold of the mail? LOL! :)

Amazon had too many complaints from customers, so they haven't really been selling many 3DS systems (by choice) themselves for months now.

I am thinking the exact same thing. Does anyone know if this deal will also be online or is it just in store?

Kinda weird that the worlds largest online retailer stopped selling nintendo's latest handheld because of customer complaints. I wonder if there's something we're not privy to.

Once again they advertise "All games" but the PC Skyrim (and other PC games they carry) likely won't be included in the deal.

No my wife threw it in the trash before I got a chance to post it here. I had to dig it out and ripped it in the process.

This deal looks too good to be true, but I noticed that in the paper it shows the regular 169.99 red 3DS, not the 199.99 Super Mario 3DS bundle.


The 199.99 Mario bundle is on another page.

what kind of complaints?
for the most part the customer reviews in Amazon are positive.

I was so tempted to get the zelda bundle at best buy but after using it for 15 minutes I realized it wasnt for me.
the screen is kind of small, I got a little dizzy and if I moved my field of vision the image would look kind of blurry.

All these plus having to pay $14 dollars tax (sorry but amazon has me so spoiled for not paying taxes)

looks like they had them in stock not too long ago again though so who knows

I'm really hoping they sell them again soon cause I have credit that I want to use on it.

The launch units had quite a few known issues. To be honest, I'm not sure if these all have been addressed or Nintendo is still calling some of these 'features'. These are the two most annoying and well known facts about all those units:

1. bottom portion/screen would cause scratches on the top screen, because the bumpers were not high enough when the unit was closed (hence the parts were touching).

2. Turning unit on/off requires 2-3 attempts (never shuts off or on during first attempt).
