God dammit, I want the red one but the MK7 bundle is so sweet. But I already have MK7. ahhhh, what to do?


I said F it. Already had Mario Kart 7 (which I don't even play anymore really) and got the Red one.

Fuck it, you're right. I have the red Mario DS XL and red is my fave color (pissed when they released red months after I got the original 3DS + ambassador stuff). I'll grab that one since I bet MK7 is a download game anyways (can't flip it anyways)...

GameSmacker, fatlar84. Was there anything special you had to do to get the Best Buy PM AND $20 GC from Target? I don't think I've even PM'd anything at Target before, is it done at the customer service desk?

Is mk hard installed or downloadable by a code? I ask since I want to transfer my ambassador stuff without losing the game.

I just asked the people in the electronics section to price match bestbuy.com and they brought me to the guest services desk after grabbing the 3DS XL bundle. They then PM'd it with the $20 GC after double-checking..

PM'd at target for the pink xl. They wouldn't give me the $20 gift card but I did use a $8 off coupon I had from a previous purchase. My daughter will be super happy:)

could we play that MK7 in the 4GB SD on any system or is it registered/stuck to the specific 3DS XL?

Mario Kart 7 is the same old rehash. Sure it works, but its repetitive and bores quickly.

With the Mario 3DS you get a better game, plus you can switch out the battery for the Nyko Powerpak and have it last longer than 2-3 hours per charge.

I still think xl is the better deal, if hes not getting a xl im sure he can get a cheaper 3ds elsewhere. Xl is really the reason why you should now get a 3ds imo.

Didnt have any probs picking this one up and after years of owning a dslite this thing is amazing. The blue color is actually more a metallic dark blue so I like it.

Why not? Outside of losing some money of course...

Since I made the switch I am playing my XL a lot more than the regular model. For me it was the increaed screen size.

blue mk7 bundles 160 on bestbuy.com

I tried to resist the deals on the XL since I hardly play my regular 3DS, but $159.99 for the Mario Kart 3DS XL bundle? I pulled the trigger.

What about the digging into your palms feature?

I'm 100% shocked that books still exist in today's day and age. I thought they'd be out by now. They make up like 1% of today's entertainment and unless you're 60 or older, stray away from books and start emersing yourself with real entertainment.

Yeah, I was surprised when I actually saw one in person at target. The pictures make it look so dull, more like the dsi xl blue, but in person it has a strangely alluring metallic quality.

Same. I was going to wait till Wednesday for Double Reward Points day but it's not available for shipping and two locals stores have already had their stock cleared out.

I've been building up a decent DS/3DS Library for when I eventually would get one. This will be my first Nintendo console since the N.E.S. (no kidding). I'm a PS+ member and do eventually want to get a Vita, but I'm holding off for a redesign/price drop.

The first Target I went to said they couldn't price match because of the $20 gift card. The second Target priced matched with no problems, so YMMV. Yesterday the regular 3DS with no game was on sale for $129 ($123 with red card). Today, I get the 3DS XL and MK7 for $133 (target red card). I'm glad I waited.

I use headphones so there should not be difference there.

Do a lot of you just play with the regular speakers or use headphones?

For the screen yes it is the same pixels but to me it still looks very good. Of course this is completely in the eye of the beholder....goes either way for people.

I'm hoping Nyko or someone makes a battery pack extension for this. That would definitely make me jump the bandwagon from the 3DS to XL.

I thought battery life on the XL was vastly improved compared to the regular 3DS?

Have not even got a warning yet that the battery was low.
