I'd pick it up, but i think I'll wait until the next Pokemon game comes out to buy one. lol I have 3 DS systems(diff models) and the only games i own are Pokemon games.

What stores will retroactively price match this if I buy the system this week?

Will Target do that?

Best Buy will, but I'm not sure about Target.

I been holding out due to not having a 2nd analog.
So they release a piece to attach to the 3ds, butwhat about the 3ds xl?
Did they ever make one for the XL?


Did any of the 3DS games ever really need a 2nd analog? I play my kids 3ds all of the time and I have yet to feel I need another analog controller.

Curious anyone here know if the XL would be too big for a small child? Say a 7 - 9 year old girl? I have a family member that wants a pink 3DS and this might be the ticket here.

Thanks for the heads up OP! I was going to wait untill Animal Crossing came out (since that's the one i'm DYING to get) but I'm pretty sure I won't see a deal like this anytime before then. THANKS!

I blame that on nintendo not being wise enough to include a second stick, espcaily after the years PSP got bitched about by not having a 2nd stick.

Looks like i'm finally gonna upgrade my 3DS, only thing that would keep me from upgrading at this point would be hearing news about new 3ds XL colors in today's Nintendo Direct.

Why do I have a gut feeling the Mario Kart 7 bundle isn't part of this deal?

Because it won't be. Doesn't make sense for it to be part of the deal.

That being said, if on the .00000000000000000000001% chance it is, instant buy.

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.

As someone already said, it's only available in Japan so far unless you import.

It makes it almost the same size as the Vita with the Nyko Powergrip in case that matters to you. I mainly game at home, so it doesn't bother me.

I think Target is 7 or 14 days, I'm not sure how or if they have a Holiday policy right now. I think Best Buy would be your best bet unless you have a red card.

Is the pink/white XL even available in the US? or did the OP mistake this as a non XL sale price?

Edit: Never mind, just read the Best Buy ad thread and it is indeed the XL, apparently Pink/White version launches 12/9. Very tempted to pick one up at this price.

I just picked up a MK7 bundle from TRU today (I'm a fan of MK) but still find myself interested in this deal. $160 for the 3DS XL alone vs an MK7 bundle with $30 GC. For a fan of the MK series who doesn't mind the game being preinstalled, the TRU bundle is the better deal right?

Did any of the 3DS games ever really need a 2nd analog? I play my kids 3ds all of the time and I have yet to feel I need another analog controller.


Kid Icarus Uprising would have benefited greatly from a 2nd analog. In addition to that, any FPS game would benefit from one as well.

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.


Dude, that has got to be the best sig animation EVAR!!! :D

damn at $160 the 3DS XL is very tempting but thing is I would probably end up barely playing it just like when I got the original DS. Now if they ever have a $130-$150 Mario bundle I may not be able to resist

I know I'm not alone in struggling with the decision to keep the TRU gift card deal, but does anyone have any experience with returning an item after having used the free gift card? I thought I saw something about TRU having you "return" the card by charging you the amount, but I can't find confirmation.

They should have adjusted the return value of the item you purchased to offset the value of the "free" gift card. You should be able to see this on your receipt.

Shit, I've been sitting here debating about the Mario Kart bundle/GC deal and finally decided against it... and now this? Sigh.

I hate it because I've been holding out for new colors, but $160 at a time where I have the extra cash? Damn you, Best Buy. My willpower may not be strong enough.

I was planning to trade in my 3DS at Best Buy before BF but their trading system was down, so I couldn't trade it in. Now the trade in values have dropped.

Is the Nintendo 3DS XL Mario Kart bundle the same as the non-bundle?
Or is the Mario Kart bundle an newer/updated model?
Debating whether to return my Mario Kart Bundle since I don't care much for the game and rather save $40 dollars plus tax.
