Why is everyone saying "terrible colors"? I'm lovin' that Red/Black combination... Grrr~

In any case, anyone know if this'll include online? I was gonna take advantage of Target's $130 3DS but they didn't have it online, and I'm in Argentina trying to get a friend of my dad's to bring it over, and I simply can't ask him to go pick it up at a store, so...

Well, BB currently IS shipping 3DSes and XLs, but... I dunno, anyone got any clue? Thanks in advance :3

If this works for online, a Red/Black 3DS with Layton and the Miracle Mas and New Super Mario Bros 2 will be mine next week.


Excellent choice! Those were the two games I bought when I picked up my 3DS XL a few weeks back and I was not disappointed.

Was hoping to pricematch my 3DS XL MK7 Bundle at Fry's for 159.99 after buying it for $179.99 earlier this week.

Doesn't look like that is going to happen anywhere though unless I get really lucky with a cashier. Fry's and every other retailer seems to have clearly divided there 3DS XL prices from their 3DS XL MK7 bundle prices.

So I'm in for Mario Kart 7, which forces me to choose between Paper Mario Sticker Star and Super Mario 3D Land (already have Layton and NSMB2). Anyone recommend one over the other?

If I trade in Blops 2 for Far Cry 3 can I still get the 49.99 PM? Otherwise I'll wait to PM and trade in next week.

I just bought the 3ds XL Mario Kart Bundle at TRU this week (still unopened, came with $30 GC). I wonder if I could get TRU to price match BB's 159.99 deal.

I should have waited a few more days to pick up Dishonored. Missing out on the PM by 1 day.


Just try it anyway. Most people I've encountered (I'm assuming you're talking about Best Buy) don't take the time to count. Even if they did, I don't think they would bust your balls about one day.. though they could.

Yes with receipt or have them look it up on rewards account.

If you bought it day 1 and you're a silver member, you miss it by one day. But, as I said above, it doesn't hurt to try (right away on Sunday).

Super Mario 3D Land feels like Super Mario Galaxy Jr., so if you enjoyed Galaxy, you'll dig SM3DL.

I haven't finished Paper Mario yet, but it's very similar to the old titles but with all the RPG features stripped out. It feels like a slower Mario adventure game, basically. Also good, but SM3DL is the killer app for the 3DS in my opinion. Start there.

I picked up the bundle today to trade killzone into gamestop. It rang up $60 because I left my time machine at home.

Thanks! I'm going to defer to your wisdom and pick it up come Sunday.

Thanks for posting this up. I got a pal who went ahead and bought himself the 3DS XL during Black Friday at Best Buy, despite there being no sale for it. He really couldn't wait any longer. He still has the receipt and what not. Is it terribly difficult to go in and get the difference on the new deal?

What do I need to do to get a pm at BestBuy? Would simply taking a receipt be fine?

Someone answered this question for me earlier, so figured I'd answer you, too. As long as your friend paid via CC, has his receipt, or used his BB Rewards Card, they should be able to price-match it relatively easily for him.

Hope this answers your question!

All you need is the receipt. BBY will check the sale and most likely call the other store to see if it's in stock.

Can I price match halo 4 if I paid with a gift card?

yes, if you bought it in store they will give you back the difference in a new gift card but if you bought it online then they will credit it back to the old gift card that you used, and if you dont have the old gift card you can always ask them to send you a replacement with the new balance
