Didn't see this posted, so here goes.

 

Two Pokemon 3DS XLs announced for North America.  They come out September 27.  There's a red and a blue one (though they both have the same design).  Retails for $199.99.

 

Looks like the game isn't bundled with the systems.  Not sure how limited these will be, but the Pikachu XLs sold out pretty fast.

 

Preorder at Gamestop - Red

Preorder at Gamestop - Blue

 

Preorder at Best Buy - Red

Newegg and Target have pages up, but it doesn't look like they're taking preorders right now.  Newegg, at least, was taking preorders at one point.

Target - Red

Perhaps it wasn't posted here in the Video Game Deals section because it is not a Video Game Deal.

I fail to see how this isn't a deal but something like the Wind Waker WiiU preorder is?

They DO NOT include the games. And I doubt these will be as limited like the Pikachu ones.

The Windwaker WiiU was the console they announced with the Wii U price drop? I guess?

I don't feel like either should have been posted in the Deals section.

Alright then. I guess if it doesn't belong here, please move it mods.

 

I see tons of things in this section at MSRP though, so I don't know what to think anymore.

The deals section is so barren (funny how some of the above morons can find time to bitch and complain but never find time to post deals themselves) that I don't mind seeing stuff like this posted there.

These are "limited edition" so could be worth something down the line

Lmao at everyone bitching. Topic creator should of made a topic about how you can flip $50 into $51. Then it would be to at least 500 post by now.

So tempted to grab one, but I really wish they bundled a copy of X or Y with it!

 

Anyway, I'm guessing these will be easier to find than that Pikachu edition.

I agree.  Neither should be on the front page.  

 

Some say the front page is barren, yet I say it is cluttered with non-deals and threads that are used 99% for discussion.

 

Also, I don't think "this may become rare and increase in value" makes something front page worthy.  Maybe a new forum should be created to discuss such things but just because something "may increase in value" does not mean it is a deal.

There are discussion forums for every interesting thing you could possibly think of.

Eh...

 

I saw what you were saying about the front page being mostly discussion. One thing I would say is a year ago and earlier there were a lot more "X Game for Y Price" threads. If I came on the board every day I'd be tempted to buy one game a day.

 

Now, you don't see those a lot. I don't know why. If the deals don't exist, or people aren't posting them? I don't think it is because of the "discussion" threads though.

Yeah, I'd probably get the gold one, but I think I'll hold off on these ones.

Don't understand the absurd outrage over this being posted. Potentially collectable LE. On top of that, the title says what the topic is about so it's not like you were fooled into the topic. Some people in this community are so vocal over the stupidest things. I expect comments about board space and bandwith next so I hope I'm not disappointed.

I have the Gamestop credit set aside for when these were released but I am pretty let down by Nintendo for not including even a digital copy of the game. That is pretty weak. 

 

Hmm. What to do. I might just open the Pikachu XL and play it instead of dumping $200 on these.

 

Maybe get a decal for my Blue one lol

Given how quickly the last Pokemon XL sold out, there's little motivation for Nintendo to pack in a free game as an incentive.

Good job OP, don't let anybody bring you down. CheapyD makes money off the referral links and that's what matters to him.

One of the smartest things I've seen posted here. It really baffles me how some people actually go through all that trouble.

I don't mind hearing things like this from CAG, I also notice that there's a bunch of little bitches here though.

They complain about shit and they don't contribute.

It's pretty annoying but I'm not going to waste my time fighting with them. Haha.
