Still mad it had to be pre-installed, otherwise I probably would have went against my better judgement to buy it.

Thanks Nintendo for raising my hype and simultaneously killing it

I'll be getting rid of my XL for this one. lol. I think I'm the only person that's not a fan of the pixelated mess that is the XL.

Not sure if it kills it for me but since it's been confirmed, how likely will this be a particular chain store exclusive? As others have noted, would be good to get it from BB but I can be ok with GS too as I have tons of credit at both.

I feel the same way. I would have been seriously tempted to buy this if it came with the actual game even though I just bought a purple 3DS. Ah well, I'm not complaining.

Yep. Looks like that's $200 or so out of my pocket. Man, this will be the first 3DS or DS I will ever own. Kind of excited about it. Despite the fact I don't have as much time as I used to when I was younger to play games.

Now its a matter of whether or not I can stay committed to this til Feb 4th, lol.

Unbelievable how many Nintendo fanboys will continually re-buy handhelds just for new colors or patterns. Seems like a big waste of money. But I guess Nintendo counts on that fact to increase hardware sales.

Well if your a fan of the series, having a special console is pretty awesome. And for this one, it'll likely become pretty rare considering the series

And if you haven't already picked up a 3ds, this is a pretty good incentive :)

LE console and FE on the go? Yes please!

I'll take rebuying for new colors over rebuying for red ring.

I'm 100% shocked that books still exist in today's day and age. I thought they'd be out by now. They make up like 1% of today's entertainment and unless you're 60 or older, stray away from books and start emersing yourself with real entertainment.

It probably is going to be $200. Why would they sell it for $169.99 and give the game away for free? The game is a new release, not a year old like super mario 3d land or mario kart 7.

Yeah it looks like it will be $200 if the Zelda bundle is any indication. That is disappointing. Sony released the AC3/COD bundle for MSRP and I hoped Nintendo would do the same. I want my $10 EShop card/physical copy then!

I don't know, Sony and Microsoft fanboys seem to do the same. I have several friends that have traded-in perfectly working Xbox 360s to get the Halo or other branded versions and I know a couple of Vita owners that went from the regular Vita to the white version. While I think Nintendo fanboys may upgrade their handhelds more frequently because of regular hardware upgrades, they certainly are not alone in wanting branded and unique versions of their favorite hardware.

Still a better buy than a Neo Geo X Gold or second Vita.

I am guilty of doing this.

When Mario 3ds XL bundle came out, it was (and is) the same price as the stand-alone ($199.99). We may get a normal 3DS MSRP on this one.

Hope you're right but even at $10 or $20, i'd be ok with it. $30 would give me pause. Awww who am I kidding, I'm gonna buy it anyway.

By the way, the zelda bundle was a GS and BB exclusive. I think BB had it for $179 and GS had it for $199.

Also, guys, don't feed the chimptroll. All dude ever does is go into nintendo threads and starts crap.

I'm tempted to buy this, but I have a strong feeling that Nintendo will unveil the 3DS refresh that looks more like its XL big brother by E3, and I'd be kicking myself.

I'm a huge fan of this series, but I just can't do it. I'm holding out for a decent XL color so I'll keep waiting.
