I hope more than one store has this offer and can bundle a different game with it. I really can't be bothered with MK7.


How are you going to accomplish that when mario kart is preloaded?

I might buy one depending on who is selling it(not Amazon of course, I assume).

How does this work, then? If one does a system transfer do they lose it?

I didn't know so many people weren't interested in Mario Kart. It's easily one of the best 3DS games and possibly the best Mario Kart yet.

Was pretty much the same with the ds lite, so not really surprising... If it wasn't for Mario Kart and Ouendan my DS probably would have never been used.

Is Mario Kart 7 a actual cart or is it pre-loaded on the XL?

Really? I dont normally call people lazy but my word its been said at least 10 times in the past 3 pages. Its like you opened this thread, closed your eyes, clicked on the last page and scrolled down till you couldnt see anything and posted your question. Sheesh.

I'm still waiting for the 3DS XL with the inevitable 2nd analog stick. Bet it's going to be Nintendo's biggest announcement at next year's E3.


3DS Lite with a 2nd analog stick please.

Still holding out for one, since there's nothing out or coming out, that I want to play badly.

Grr I did a 3ds to 3ds xl system transfer, that seemed to wipe the 3ds xl clean and I lost the preinstalled Mario kart game? Did that happen to anyone else?

Multiple folks saying you go back into the downloads menu on the 3ds shop and it'll be there available for re-download. Try it out...

I'm not even joking when I say a brilliant idea would be to get this package, transfer your stuff onto it, then transfer back with MK7 and then return it.

Who gives refunds on open video games/consoles though?

Picked up this bundle today. Transfer wiped Mario Kart, but it was on the eshop to download with everything else. It's already updated to 1.1.

Black continues to be the worst electronics color, but at least the finish doesn't leave fingerprints. The buttons feel much better all around, but the d-pad doesn't set right. It's always a little off centered, unlike the Vita. Still plays just fine.

Overall, I'm happy with it.

I don't know where you live, but most B&M stores around here give refunds on open consoles, just not on open video games. If it's a console/video game bundle, you're still likely to get a refund even if it's opened. The exception would be places like gamestop. Most other stores in my area allow them though.

Not saying it's a good idea to abuse return policies, but if you have a legit reason to return it, then you should be ok.

I'm not sure about this "dimmer screens" argument. I know there was an issue with some people getting units that had a yellowish tint, but mine doesn't have that. I have had my launch 3DS and my XL sitting side by side and the screens look essentially the same in terms of brightness and color. I've never felt that there was anything wrong with the audio and the sacrifice in visual crispness is relatively minor and completely worth it in my opinion.

Are these problems from your own experiences with an XL?


the 3DS XL dfoes have dimmer screen...if you can't see that...well you just don't notice it but it's there. It personally annoys the crap out of me. Also, the speakers are much worse than the original, which is another deal breaker for me (the biggest reason)

TRU had this bundle today plus they have a red 3DS XL bundle that comes with Super Mario 3D Land instead. In case it hasn't been mentioned already.

The real question is... how do you transfer your data from a cartridge version to the digital? I suppose I could play through it all again... lol

That's just the regular 3DS, no XL.

Thanks OP! Swapped out the 3dsxl I bought for my daughter 2 weeks ago for this one at GameStop yesterday.

Btw, GameStop mentioned to me that they have a pink 3dsxl listed in the system that is supposed to be a available on 12/9. My guess is that this is the same system that has been exclusive to gilt.com for the last month or so. I thought about holding out since the ds is for my daughter but they could not tell me if there was a game packed in so I decided not to risk it

Stupid question here, but is MK7 available for ANY XL owners to dl or just the ones who had theirs wiped by Transfer? I already have it but it would be great to have it already available. My favorite MK btw.

Can the pre-loaded Mario Kart game be transferred to another XL? I'm guessing not since this is Nintendo, but I want the blue system and don't care about Mario Kart whereas my son wants the red one and loves Mario Kart.

I've seen the Pink/White system on store shelves in Target and KMart, and I can confirm that there's no game bundled in there.
