Ordered, hate the 3ds xl colors, but that price I won't complain if it does go through, and if it doesn't, oh well. Thanks OP.

*shrug* The matte finish of the red/black are a lot better than the glittery two-tone gradient in the original 3DS.

Blue XL looks very nice in person actually. Not that you'll actually be looking at the blue while playing.

Yeah all XLs are all black on the inside. Definitely looks better than the regular 3DS which had like 3 or 4 different colors and was shiny to boot.

Sorry for crossposting, but I noticed this post on a certain other deals forum that I think everyone in this thread might be interested in seeing:

Emailed their support line asking about a release date after ordering.

Here was their response:

"Good morning,

Thank you for contacting EBGames.ca

The item you have order is currently slated to release in Early December.

Do not hesitate to contact us again if you have any questions.

Regards,

So it seems that they'll be honouring these pre-orders. Yay!

Well, it seems that the orders are being canceled. I received a shipping confirmation, but the order total comes to $0.00. :cry:

I got an email saying they're honouring it with a red 3DS XL and a copy of NSMB2 on the side, not an actual bundle.

Dear EB Games Customer,

This email is with regards to your order of the Nintendo 3DS XL Red with New Super Mario Bros 2 bundle. Unfortunately, this product was not meant to be available in Canada, but was accidentally made available on EBGames.ca. As you may have noticed, the product has been removed from EBGames.ca. We want to assure you that we will be honouring your order and sending you a Nintendo 3DS XL Red and a copy of New Super Mario Bros 2 at the price of $169.99; however, it may take up to 7 business days to ship these orders in full.


Thanks EB Games

I think I read on RFD that the 3DS XL are 149$ at Costco? So we're really just getting a 20$ NMSB2. But oh well, the timing was right for me, with Etrian Odyssey 4 around the corner.

Yes they are but every Costco in my city is sold out. If it's on RFD then consider it gone.
