I guess people have known this was coming for a while since your listings haven't sold in a while.

I bet there are a lot of people who are going to be kicking themselves in the ass once this officially comes out. I remember there was a CAG here trying to sell for damn near $500.



I read from a reputable source on GameFAQs that they are only manufacturing 5000. O_O



I doubt they're going produce such a low number... given how pretty much every new color/iteration of Nintendo portables provides an instant boost to sales and this being a Pikachu one, I'm guessing it'll have a pretty high production run. No question that it'll sell out though.

Oh my god please don't tell me that 5000 is true. PLEASE PLEASE. Must sell my Earthbound now just to buy this once Target opens.

I guess this qualifies when you register your XL for a free game? :)

A Walmart near me still has 3ds xl Mario kart bundles for $199.99. Once the target sale for $159.99 xls is active do you think ill be able to price match at Walmart? $159.99 for the Mario kart bundle would be amazing!


I'm curious too. Can someone answer this question?

I doubt they will sell out, it is very ugly, i'm not being a troller or whatever, it is true. I can imagine a lot more designs that would look much better ): and why is pikachu's face so rounded? what happened too him? :(

I definitely understand that you're not a troller, nor that you're trying to troll. However, you severely underestimate the sheer amount of Pokemon fans that would be interested in this if you believe that it wont sell out. I can say with the utmost confidence that it would most definitely will sell out.

No, it wasn't mean. I'm just simply stating that it will sell out. Every LE 3ds that had been made has sold out, there hasn't been a case yet where they haven't. How long it takes is a different story entirely though. It could take one day or three weeks, no one knows.

Of course many Pokemon fans wont like the design, but that doesn't mean that all Pokemon fans wont like the design.

I think they printed the pikachu on it upside down. Good thing the other colors are on sale too, tempted to get a blue one.

Would this LE Pikachu 3DS XL be a great collected item? I am thinking of buying one to keep and buy a black/blue 3DS XL to play every day.

Resellers, alone, are gonna wipe this thing out! It's an investment for the future.

So in other words this will be right next to the Zelda 3DS plus the red and blue Wii?

I have some Gamestop credit to burn, might as well, these Nintendo themed consoles always sell out quick.

I wish the design was more similar to the Pikachu SP which I thought was way more :3

Why couldn't they bring the Charizard edition to the US ... at least then I could be seen out in public with it as a grown man ...


If you aren't man enough to play with Pikachu in public then you aren't a man at all.

you are a pillar of the video game/gaming community. 

 

 

Thanks you are truly a pillar of the community!

I might put in a pre-order at GS just to be safe, but I'm really banking on the Target sale. I think I should be good as long as I'm there when the Target opens.
