Google shopping has always been 100% accurate for me regarding price UNLESS their is a manager special where they take an additional % off but that usually requires an override.


Iirc, Google shopping shows only the last price that the item has sold for. So it could very well be 39.97 in the local Sears system but the last time it sold it was $75.

It usually updates the day after the price updates. If he thinks its 100% accurate the. He's not checking the day of the price change.

Rose Dsixl was $40. Only other color they had was blue and it was $60.

$75 at my sears as well, just checked 20 minutes ago. Bought it though (sticker said it had been price reduced on the 4th, so I didn't want to wait until next month lest it vanish).

I like Shin Megami Tensei and wouldn't mind trying out a Zelda (haven't played one in about 10 years) but I have such a tremendous backlog that it may be at least a year before I could attempt to play anything on it. I already have a PSP and a PSP Go that have barely been used. My backlog on PS3 titles alone I would estimate at 120, that includes time consuming titles like Fallout 3, New Vegas, Oblivion, Dragon Age. I just don't have the time to play all the stuff I want to. (To be honest, since joining CAG I have probably spent more time looking for deals than actually playing.)


I know how u feel.

Im getting $75 as well


Yeah, $75 here as well. For $40, I would definitely get one, but $75 seems too much for an old system, considering the 3ds xl has all the funcitonality of a dsi xl, in addition to playing 3ds games.

Yeah I feel your pain on the backlog, its just that this is so cheap for this system you will probably have to wait another 3 years until we see a $99 price drop on it so even if you want one game its worth getting for that price. Heck you could probably sell it used for more than what you paid new.

It doesn't make much sense to buy a DSi XL now at any price really, maybe for $25 or if you really want to have one in your collection especially if you can get the 3DS for $99.

I can testify that DS games look just fine on the regular 3DS and the black border around the top screen doesn't bother me at all. I have no idea how regular DS games look on the 3DS XL.

They look fine to me, but I'm no AV Nazi.

I havent tried DS on a 3DSXL, but on a regular 3DS it was far from optimal. I can play NES games on my tablet for instance, but it isnt as good as if i were playing them on real hardware. That kind of thing.

I think Nintendo released an update to the 3DS to improve the look of DS games at some point. I am guessing these red systems are pretty old, so if you haven't yet it would be a good idea to update the system if you have the clearance red system. I am no visual expert either but the regular DS games play fine to me.

Heh. I just had a guy come in and get the last flame red 3DS from my store. Sounds like he thought this deal was just a little too slick.

Hopefully these are going to people who will actually use or gift the system, not flippers, though flippers usually don't go for the single flip, and this deal is hard to find, if you find the system on sale there will most likely only be one left. I am wondering if Nintendo discontinued the red and blue 3DS's as most stores here have only pink, purple and black in stock and I believe these have a new, smaller box.

Went to my local Sears there was nothing that was mentioned here. No flame red 3DS and no DSi XL just their tags telling me I was too late.

If I had the technical skills...

I'd take a DSi XL's speakers/shell, a 3DS's slot, a GBA SP's slot, and Frankenstein it all together.

You know you'd want a 3DS XL SP! (A 3DS XL that's loud and can play GB/GBC/GBA cartridges.)

How about a 3DS lite? (Cram all the 3DS hardware into a DS lite's shell. Replacing the GBA slot with the SD memory card slot.)

Not that into 3D, so someone else can use their imagination place the 3DS switches somewhere.

I didn't even think it would be worth it for someone to flip the system. I just calculated it and if someone sells the system for $160 shipped they are only making around $20 after fees and shipping. With the risk of selling a system (dealing with scammers or someone having a complaint about something like a dead pixel), I would have thought no would one bother but I guess I am wrong after reading some of the posts on the thread on SD.

Thanks for the tip man :D

Now if DsiXL goes to $40 soon as someone mentioned earlier. I might consider selling the one I bought today and go for that instead :)

Just got back from Sears, not much to mention. I picked up MLB the Show 11 for $4.97. The had Ocarina of time for 3ds for $24.97, but I passed. I had them scan a blue and pink dsi xl. Blue rang $119.97, and pink $74.97.

Checked two nearest stores and found one last metallic rose DSi XL for $75. None of the other clearanced models to be found. Picked it up since my DS Lite is 5 years old and doesn't work too well any more. Thanks!

I think people on slickdeals would bother if the profit was $5-10.... Sigh

I'm surprised that hasn't gone down recently. I picked it up for the same price back in November I believe.

It might have been cheaper. I haven't followed it much this one much. I really liked both Dragon Warriors back on the Gameboy along with he first DQM Jokers, so I figured this would be worth a shot :D

A lot of the older games aren't dropping. I have been waiting for that game and a few others to drop in price but they haven't in a few months.

I saw the DSI XL the other day. Rose $74.xx. Would've got it for $40. Can't justify $74.xx on that when I could get a 3DS XL for $30-$40 more from Cowboom.

Same at mine too. Bought it to resell.

First, how can you claim prior non-existance to devalue a movement? I am sure the civil rights movement would love that. "Well, there was no movement to free the slaves before, so why is it relavent now?"

All the sears stores here no longer have video games, aka the games themselves on clearance, so perhaps the games are at a standstill in the system regarding price if your store still has any left. Thankfully I got that DQ game when it was still available here. Another reason why I am weary of waiting for things to drop too low as they may just disappear, especially when it's something I really want.

I have no idea what happened to the leftover games here as there was definitely leftovers but they are gone now.

Same here. There were a bunch of clearance games not too long ago, then poof, all gone but a couple stragglers. And don't tell me customers bought up the copies of Rayman 3DS for $20.97.

All of my local Sears too. Beginning of Dec they had a drop, sold a few titles and then suddenly the bin was gone. I know they didn't sell them as I was there every day. I am hoping for a random .97 dump at some point.

I've personally done a couple of large pulls where we grab a great deal of our clearance titles and send them RTV to get a few more dollars.
