Oh shi, I'm going to get this. I was upset that the bundled Flame Red 3DS with Super Mario 3D Land didn't look any different than the old one, so I'll be getting this just to get something a bit unique.

As long as it's at Best Buy, I should be able to get it cheap. I got a lot of reward points there.


It did look different than the old one, that was the problem. :cry:

It's a handheld Nintendo product. It can't be "badass".

I would seriously consider this if it was an XL.

Amazon doesn't sell nintendo consoles as a first party anymore so I doubt you'll be able to preorder.


Damn it, do you know why? I have $300 in amazon credit.

I've been jonesing for a 3ds xl lately, but I guess I'll wait around and see if they put out anymore good bundles. I found the Mario kart bundle for $189, so maybe I'll go ahead and pick that one up.

Nobody knows the exact reason, but some seem to think it was due to Amazon having to honor too many replacements for faulty hardware (3DS screen scratchings, DS Lite hinges, etc.) and not getting credited for them.

I'd rather invest in something else


Investing in limited edition DSes is an easy and surprisingly lucrative opportunity.

I just checked my email for the limited edition zelda 3ds:

zelda 3ds, 194.84, 12/2011

current price on amazon, $390 new, assume 20% in fees = $312, $312 - 195 = $117, 60% profit in 13 months

The weird thing is I think every limited edition gameboy type has been like this. The first time I really got clued into this was the green gameboy SP from target

This will look good sitting next to the Zelda 3DS on my shelf :)

I didn't realize Fire Emblem was that big of a game to warrant a bundle...especially stateside. Are the games any good? It's a Srpg right?

I see. Hopefully newegg gets it then.

Such an awesome looking 3DS. I must stay strong and resist and wait for a 3DS XL.

Larger screen, longer battery life, sleeker design.

Not sure how anyone could think the regular 3DS is better than the XL unless you have small hands.

Gosh I want this, I was actually hoping it won't get a state side release because I knew I would buy it. Than again only time will tell...

Most likely people who are saying 3ds is better than 3ds xl are the ones who cant upgrade.. Or just refuse to because they mad at nintendoooo. (even though we already knew from the beggining they would release a new 3ds design).

This.....I would have imported that Charizard one if it wasnt for the damn region lock. I love Pokemon edition consoles, I'v already had like 4 or 5 different ones.

The 3DS is only good with a Nyko Power Pak.

As somebody who has the means to upgrade, I have 0 desire to get the XL. I've played on a friend's and between the stretched screen, and poor sound, and the overall design (looks more toy-like than I'd like - although the start/select are much better) I can see why many still prefer the original.

I just bought a 3DS XL a week ago so yeah, unless it was a really special edition model that is a must have, I'm happy to stick with my system. I am very excited for Fire Emblem though so I can't wait for Feb. 4th :)

I recently upgraded to the XL and I have no problems with it at all other than the light blue color. I haven't noticed a huge difference in sound (and I prefer to use headphones, anyway), and I absolutely love the matte finish (no more finger smudges, finally! Not to mention it just feels much, much nicer to me), the more responsive circle pad (in my experience, at least - my old 3DS's circle pad was a little finicky at times), and the start/select/home buttons.

Can't see myself going back.

Hmmm.... 3ds talk always gets me drooling. Anyone know the trade in value at GS for a DS Lite?

The poor sound is due to surround sound being set by default. It's easily remedied by setting it to mono.

Actually this is supposed to be an Xl. According to Nintendoeverything.com it is a rumor but it is a 3DS XL bundle. Been waiting on something like this to get an Xl. We should know soon. Love my original 3Ds but a bigger screen and the design is just awesome. Hopefully this is Xl.

Sorry must have misread or something they have clarified that it is regular and not Xl. Please disregard post thanks
Should have been an Xl and it would sell much better
