I have the same answer:



EDIT: Is that wishful thinking?



Thank you for the answer. I will definitely be in there Sunday or Monday.

Good deal, but getting it for $10 more at launch was worth it.

I still have my Halo 4 offer available, so I could potentially get this thing for 110+tax.

Is this a sale or a price drop? With Nintendo Direct tomorrow, I'm wondering...

Eh, I'm holding off 'till after Christmas. Hopefully there'll be better colors by then.

This may sound ridiculous for many people but I think I'm going to hold off until a better color comes out. Still hoping for the Animal Crossing bundle. Great deal otherwise, thanks for posting.

People who still have ECA codes are why we can't have nice things... :shame:

I actually hope the Mario Kart 7 Blue is apart of the $160.

Heh.... I returned my $175 3DS XL to Target to pick up the $179 3DS XL & Mario Kart 7 Bundle at Fry's.

Now I'm going to probably return the Bundle to Fry's and pick up the Best Buy offer. Don't care too much for the pre-installed Mario Kart esp. if I'm saving 20 bucks.

So they release a piece to attach to the 3ds, butwhat about the 3ds xl?
Did they ever make one for the XL?

I bet it's possible to PM the BB sale at Fry's Mario Kart Bundle. Worth a shot. :D

This seems to be a good deal to PM at Target. Take an extra 5% off with Red Card, and it comes to $152 + tax. A solid deal there. :)

There is a Circle Pad Pro for the 3DS XL, but it's only available in Japan at the moment (or you could buy it through somewhere like play-asia.com - from what I hear it works fine on any 3DS XL, and it's not ilke you need to be able to read the instructions or anything for getting it setup.

As others have said, only released in Japan. but play-asia has it.

Honestly, not having a second analog is not that big of a deal.

Holding off on this too. Need better colors, some free actual game carts tossed in and more than 2 or 3 console exclusives that I've been itching to play.

This is such a great deal, but must resist....I still have to beat my ambassador games and I'll never let my Zelda 3DS go.


Yeah I know, wish there was a way to transfer those games....

Is there a way to transfer those games? Definitely hit this deal if there was.


Here's a video on how to transfer data from one 3DS to the other.
