If you have an American Express card and a facebook or twitter account, you can get $25 off by spending $250 or more at Best Buy. Might help some in justifying the purchase of this bundle.

About the Oracle Of Ages they had listed on their site as a Bonus for this bundle:

http://forums.bestbu...ght/true#M21945

The Oracle of Ages pre-order bonus is actually only available for pre-orders of just the physical copy of The Legend of Zelda: A Link Between Worlds. The hardware bundle that includes the game and a 3DS XL unfortunately does not qualify. I apologize for any inconvenience that this causes.

Best Buy offering Free The Legend of Zelda: Oracle of Ages with pre-order of game or bundle.

Well, now they have also removed the wording and the picture from the page I originally linked. However, that info still remains on the main video game page. Image for proof in case it gets removed.

The X Y one? You should. This will be more rare.

Only problem with BB pre-orders is that they will pre-authorize your card weekly until it comes out, so the money is basically permanently tied up--super annoying!

just ordered one for pick up. thanks op!

side note: not sure how limited these will be compared to past special editions, but i've never seen the AC or Pikachu 3DS in the wild.

...I wonder if I should sell my Pokemon 3DS for one.

 

If you like the Zelda one more, then 100%.

 

The X Y one? You should. This will be more rare.

 

Yeah... no.

side note: not sure how limited these will be compared to past special editions, but i've never seen the AC or Pikachu 3DS in the wild.

 

I've seen a Pikachu 3DS XL in the wild a few days after release and I've seen the AC one a month after release. 

 

However, I wouldn't trust anyones theory on what something is or is not "rare". Like, heres how the last couple of systems went...

 

Zelda - Released on Black Friday and was thought to be impossible to find. Several systems were still readably available a week to a month later... - now a days, it sells for $250+.

Fire Emblem - Released the same time as the system and quickly sold out. I don't recall any threads for it on CAG, but I only saw one in the wild, though that was 8 weeks after release. - worth about $200 now. 

Pikachu - Released during a $160 dollar promo and Club Nintendo buy a 3DS XL + Luigi Mansion or Pokemon, get a free game promotion. Sold out almost instantly, with the remaining stock going away within the week for most areas. Most people reported these were 2 per store, Best Buy and Amazon did not carry it, so it seems to be fairly limited.  - sells for around $300+

Animal Crossing - Was probably as limited as Pikachu, but the demand was far lower. This wasn't that surprising, since the system cost more money and Animal Crossing is not a franchise on par with Pokemon or Zelda. - worth about $200 (under or around MSRP)

Pokemon X and Y - The designs were not popular and stores seemed to have received twice as many as Pikachu or Animal Crossing. Are not hard to find and can easily be bought if you want one. - worth about $200+ (though some have sold in the $170 dollar range)

Legend of Zelda - Impossible to predict, but it will probably be more common than AC or Pikachu, though perhaps not on the same tiering as Pokemon. This system will probably go on to be WORTH more than the X and Y editions, though this depends heavily on how many are out there. In either case, nothing suggests this will be rarer than the Pokemon systems. 


so admiralvic is one of 7 people who has platted lost planet 2. and one of 4 people with 100% on spelunker hd. respect him even more


guys, you are talking to admiralvic about trophy acquisition, he is the exception.

If we're talking about new sealed I would add $100 to all of your values.

So would I, but anything is only worth as much as you can get for it. Some people were buying the Pokemon 3DS XLs for well over MSRP while you could still get them from GameStop. 

 

However I also agree with the notion that it's impossible to gauge whether or not something will truly be rare/limited/valuable so far from release.

I've got this pre-ordered and I'll be looking to sell my blue/black 3DS XL. I'd be willing to sell it for a good price. Send me a PM if you're interested and maybe we can work a deal out.

That's the only thing that I don't like about the Zelda XL - I'd prefer a black interior. I preordered it anyway, as it's not that big of a deal breaker.

If you preorder it online they don't charge your card until the order is fulfilled. On the release day. I preordered it online. Also ordered the Wii U system the same way. And with most stores you can have them hold it for you rather than ship it to your house if that's what you'd prefer. I believe shipping would be free though.
