Won't quit using earbuds just yet. Probably haven't used actual cans on my head since '96.

This DS case through Club Nintendo fits my 3DS XL and doesn't look like a woman's wallet: https://club.nintend...ails/a/18506.do


Why not just use a Crown Royal bag while you're at it?

The XL is not that much bigger than the 3DS, but there would probably be a great amount of wiggle room that would make it ineffective for protecting it on the go.

Is it just me or is it impossible to find a decent 3DS XL case? I bought the CTA wallet from amazon, it feels like the system is twice the size with it in there. All I really wanted was a soft pouch to keep it from scratching in my pockets.

I'll give this one a shot; for $4, it's not the end of the world if I don't like it.


I bought this one for $16 (went on sale for $10 which I price matched). I love it, and many other CAGers sang its praises too the week it was on sale:

Says Nintendo DS, but fits 3DS XL very well.

Nice! I needed new headphones and mine broke last year. Picked it up for less than $3 thanks to Best Buy Reward Zone app giving me $5. Woo!

Well it is kind of true that the bag he linked is just a non-padded bag that will hardly protect anything.

Maybe he should place it in the bag and drop it off his roof onto cement to test that theory.

Looks like the slots in the foam only hold ds games and not 3ds with the extra tab. Is that right?

And in order to fit an xl, you have to remove the bottom layer of foam?

sorry to say this case looks cheap. You can get a much better case of the eclub for 250 coins. those slots dont look like they will hold the 3DS games. easier to lose a DS game then a 3DS game because thats $40 down the drain.

The bag is way more secure then a that mario case the slots for the games are just begging to make games be lost.

Thanks for the heads up. Unfortunately, the case is indeed mostly garbage. It's probably worth the $3.xx they're charging, but not a penny more. You're better off saving your money and buying something with more padding, and space.

Ended up grabbing two of the black Atari headphones for store pick up. Had a $10 RZ certificate anyway and my dad said he could use a pair of over the ear headphones and is a fan of the old school gaming stuff so he'll probably get a kick out of them.

There's a foam ring for the original 3DS, but for the XL you remove that and it rests on the bottom foam layer. Fits almost perfect, and the foam on the bottom helps it from not sliding around very much.

I have 5 3DS games and 1 DS game in it. They all fit :)

Great find OP, I've been looking for an XL case for awhile now. While I was at Best Buy, I also found a pretty sweet looking NES controller wallet on sale for only $3, so I bought that too since my last wallet has coming apart at the seams.
Posted Image

Also, according to the receipt the wallet is supposed to be regularly $15, I can't say I'd pay that amount for it, but for $3, it really isn't a bad investment. Anyways, I couldn't find a listing for it on Best Buy online, but the SKU on receipt is 6559126 for those interested or those with the know how to locate one.

Just ordered the case, matches my XL color, and its only 4$. Was getting tired of using that little wrap the console comes in.

I remember seeing an entire display of Atari-themed stuff before the holidays; iPhone cases and whatnot. I wonder if they're all on clearance.

Also I see that wallet often, but the vinyl material it's made out of bothers me for some reason.

Just wanted to give a small update. I was in BestBuy on the 5th and they had these in a big bin near the front of the store for 5 dollars. There were two white Atari headphones a bunch of Atari Apple product cases and three PlayStation Move Sharpshooters. All 5 a piece.
Still 40 dollars on the Website.

I might take a peek at one of my local Best Buys tomorrow to see if such a bin exists there.

Ah you got it before i fixed my post.
There is my sales slip and i was there on the 5th so it was a little earlier then i thought

Another edit.
I am sure most people know this but for anyone else making the trip to a Retail BestBuy before you go out you can go on the site click store locator on the main page find by zip code click a store in the list, and then you will find in the list to the left both Open Box and Clerance items for just that specific BestBuy location.

Like a local store of mine has Rayman Orgins for Xbox 360 new for 12 dollars when searching for Rayman the normal way only shows it listed as 18 dollars used with no new listing.

I also noticed that Best Buy had beanies with this design on sale for $3.99 (normally $15), in addition to a Halo 4 beanie. I wonder just how many of these types of things are currently on sale at Best Buy.
