I have a question. Why is the 3G + Wifi vita cheaper than the Wifi only vita? To me, it seems like it should be the other way around...

Shh, dont give them ideas.  They already figured out to check the 3DS to see if Mario Kart is installed.


If its free, its for me!!

Oops... should we both change our posts then so it doesn't talk about that? I don't want to ruin it for everyone else. xD

Thanks for the info. I just ordered one off of Amazon. Should I be worried that the battery won't be included? It isn't listed under "Not Included," but it also isn't listed under "Included."

no problem.  I wouldn't be too worried as the battery is screwed into the chassis just like all of Nintendo's handhelds so I'd be shocked if it wasn't included.  Then just return it if it doesn't.  You'd only be out your time as Cowboom has a very liberal return policy from what I understand.

Phew. I was actually pretty worried. Good to know about the return policy. You've been a big help! Thanks.

Received my Grade 5 Vita in the mail today.  Looks great!  On the description, it said it included everything, and it does (including the AR Cards).  It also came in a Vita box.  The condition is exactly as the description said.

My Nook Tablet (grade 6) was delivered today.  Not a sign of wear anywhere.

 

Now to figure out how to get CM10 running on this thing, never tinkered with Android.

I'm thinking about upgrading to an Xbox 360 S.  I see $140~ $150 for 250GB and $120 for 4GB S.  iirc, there have been better console flash sales for another $10 - $20 cheaper right?

Kinda annoyed. Just purchased a vita a few days ago and now it's deal of the  day. I don't think they'd give me a price adjustment because I ordered the 1100 model, not the 1000 model that they have advertised for deal of the day. Oh well.

There's another console flash sale today; surprised no one's mentioned it on here yet. Been looking for the past few hours and saw some decent stuff (like $80 3DSs that included everything except the SD card, but none do on Cowboom), although I can't say I'm surprised to see that they're once again listing their Wii Us for more than they usually go on the site ($250, whereas I've seen them at $230-$240 quite often on non-flash sale days).

Seeing some $39.99 Wiis that probably will go unsold.  Unless of course they can convince people that it really was $400.00 at one point.  Must've been an alternate universe.

Weird, I was just refreshing the page hoping that a different console deal would come up and the past price for the Wii went down from $400 to $249.99.

There were some earlier that had most of that included. Just had to keep refreshing. Most of those are probably gone by now. Pretty much giving up I think.

Yeah, they'll pull like 90% of their normal console listings when the DotD is console-related. They'll be back up in a day or two, depending on what sold during the DotD

Recevied my 3ds xl condition 5. look excellent, a question through.  I am comparing it to my normal 3ds. I do not know if it is me but the screen look a bit different.. not sure how to descript it. It is like when you are holding a normal 3ds, as long as you are not in 3d mode, you can move the screen around without much issue. However, on the 3ds xl, when i move the screen around, it look a bit... off. It is like light dark light dark like that. The screen look perfectly fine when it is still. Is this how it is suppose to be like?

I believe this is the normal 3d viewing angle for the xl. I recall others mentioning the viewing angle for 3d being narrower when they upgraded to the xl from the orig. 3ds. I leave it off most of the time, it can get distracting if you aren't holding it directly in front of your eyes. But its fun to turn on if the game benefits from it.

From the 3DS XL manual: To view the best-quality 3D images: 1. View the screen from directly in front. 2. Hold the screen 12 to 16 inches(30–40 centimeters) from your eyes. Adjust the distance for the easiest viewing of 3D images. (3ds manual says 10 to 14 inches (25–35 centimeters).

So, is Cowboom still the best option for getting a cheap console? One of my PS3s (an original 60gb
) just yellow lighted for like the 3rd time so I'm not going to bother getting it fixed. But I would like to still have a console to take  with my to game night and stuff. Seeing as the PS4 is just on the horizon I don't  want to spend more than $100-130 on a replacement. I have a 320 GB hard drive I can take out of my broken PS3 so HD size isn't really an issue. I would like slim or super slim model so I hopefully won't run into the same yellow light issues.

 

So are Cowboom's auctions a viable option or should I wait for a day they have Flash deals?

A little late but when they had a flash sale on August 9 I managed to score a Grade 5 Xbox 360 S that had everything except the AV cable and Owners manual for $129.99 Not a problem for me since I was going to use an HDMI cable anyways.It arrived 10 days later and upon visual inspection there were only some small scratches on the top bumper but nothing I'm able to see from a few feet away while playing. The original one year warranty was even still valid until February 2014 so this console hadn't been in use for long. Overall I am very pleased with my purchase.

No shares available at this time

Just a heads up, a couple Wii U Basic (8GB) sets have popped up for 154.99 today. I snagged a grade 6 at that price about five minutes ago
